Fast forward to a week ago. I had read that the small MeLuna's were super small so I decided to go with the medium. I am scheduled to start my period in one week, so today I decided to give it a trial. Needless to say, it did not go so great.
First issue I had, even though I have two children (I tried the c-fold and punch-down fold) the cup did not insert easily. Once I did get it inserted it did not open all the way but I could not turn the cup - as there was a suction. I am not sure what the position of my cervix is when I am on my period, but today when I checked - it was about the length of my index finger up (so I guess about 3 inches).
Once the cup was in and open - it took a while - I had the same discomforts as when I used tampons. The cup did not go all the way in and the ball was sticking out of my vagina. I am not sure what to do. At this point I feel like my vagina is raw from all the twisting and prodding I did and it still didn't help.
Just to give a little more info here: I am 24, have 2 children, medium flow (I may even consider it lighter than medium except I do expel larger uterine lining pieces - so I'll stick with medium), and I purchased a medium MeLuna soft cup ball stem.
Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.
