A little background: I am barely 5'1", weigh about 125 (still working off the baby weight--and she's 2), and I have had four children delivered vaginally. My periods can be pretty heavy for about a day (going through OB ultras every four-six hours). I did lots of research and checked the cup lengths. The lunette seemed to be the shortest of the large cups I could easily get here in the US. Based on these factors, I ordered the Lunette size 2.
I received my Lunette today, just in time for my period! I boiled it and then headed to the bathroom. I inserted it with no problem (the "pop" as it unfolded made me laugh). I immediately took it back out and trimmed off the stem. Is there really anyone who can stand stems? Ouchie pokie. I reinserted it and the tip still poked out. I grasped the the tip and gently pushed the cup up closer to my cervix. The tip is still right at my vaginal opening; it's not awful, but I can definitely feel it. It just feels too big! I can also feel the cup bumping around my cervix. Now I'm wondering if because of my short height, if I should have ordered the size 1.
I would greatly appreciate your help and comments. Thank you!
