So the deciding process of getting one when I got some extra money? Yeah that was tough. I already used the Nuvaring which made me feel I was more comfortable with rooting around in there, and I had the idea my vagina was on the small-ish side, but I have a heavy flow on my first days. I decided on the Meluna soft, ball stem, since I think I would cut off a regular stem. Also, I like the color options for Meluna!
I received my package partway through my period, after I reinsert the Nuvaring. That was the only thing that made me nervous about using a cup. After figuring out insertion (took a little while, but after finding the right fold was easy), when I tried removal my Nuvaring popped out too (made a mess as well, had to throw the bathrug in the washing machine). I was worried. But, popped it back in, pushed it up properly, and have yet to have a problem again.
As a bonus, Meluna sent me a small classic sample. That thing really is tiny! But it seems it would work for the last day. I ordered a large Lunette to try before my Meluna arrived, for my heavier first days. I don't know if I will like it, since I love the soft texture of my Meluna a bunch, but I liked the pretty green color and higher volume.
Anyway, I wanted to share my success with first-time Meluna soft usage, since based on things I had read I was nervous about having that be my first cup, but after getting the right fold and still kinda figuring out removal, I think I'll be very happy with it. Sorry for the long post here but I felt like sharing. :3
