I need some advice, to counteract the advice I know I would get from my mom if I asked her ;)

I ordered a miacup a few weeks ago, and it hasn't arrived yet but my circumstances have already changed. I initially wanted a smaller cup, but my flow was quite heavy and I thought the miacup would be the best compromise. For reasons I won't go in to, my flow is probably going to be lighter from now on, which means that the lunette might well work - and I love the frosted blue.

So I have two options. I can try the miacup, see how it goes, see if the concept works for me, and maybe eventually get a lunette if it seems necessary after I've gotten used to the miacup. This is the sensible option, and my mom would think I'm crazy for considering anything else.

Or, I can get both, compare, and return the miacup (due to their wonderful return policy) if the lunette wins (but if the miacup wins, I've wasted money on the lunette).

What should I do? Bearing in mind that (excluding any customs fees on the lunette) the miacup is almost twice the price of the lunette, and I don't really want to have that much money invested in cups to keep both. But the lunette is the one that calls to me :)

since people sell used cups, my advice is to get both, see which one works better and sell the used one (if you decide to keep the miacup and can't return the lunette).

You could also keep an eye out at the mc_sales community, and see if a Lunette Selene shows up there for a price you find acceptable.

Personally, I would wait and see how the mia cup fits. If it is perfect, that's wonderful. If it isn't, HOW it doesn't fit will help you choose one that is longer or shorter, narrower or wider.

The other thing I would wait for is to make sure your flow is lighter. I'm guessing a form of birth control has promised a light flow. If this is what you are pinning your hopes on, it doesn't always work that way.

As much as we are part of a "I want it NOW" society, I also have to be careful where I spend my money and buying two cups before you have even tried one seems .... incautious.

exactly. it's so much easier to choose a cup when you've already tried one.

and yeah, for me hbc changed the duration of my period but not really its heaviness - which i totally overestimated btw.

I'd definitely agree about waiting, trying it out, and seeing WHAT changes you need to make it a better fit.

And agree about birth control not necessarily making it lighter.

In conclusion, good advice clxtgirl! haha

Yeah, whst you're all saying makes sense. I think I secretly believed that the lunette would work better just because I like the color :) But figuring out precisely what I would like based on what I (potentially) don't like about the miacup makes sense.

As for the lighter flow - yes, it's hbc, but I've used this particular one before and that's the effect it had last time. I guess there's no guarantee that it'll have the same effect this time, though.

Okay, everything points to waiting. I'll try to curb my impatience and evaluate the miacup first before rushing into anything!

And just think, Lunette is coming out with TWO new colors almost as we speak. Just one more incentive to wait. XD
