Can't decide on which size (Lunette)!

Hello everyone,

I've been poring through a ton of entries here and have decided on purchasing a Lunette cup as my very first menstrual cup! However, I still can't decide on what size to get. I'm currently 21, have had sex before but would say I'm rather...tight down there (for lack of a better word). My cervix should be relatively high up during the cycle, at least 6cm up) but it does get rather sensitive down there at times.

Basically, my period lasts for 6-7 days, but only 2-3 days consists of heavy bleeding. The rest of the days it reduces drastically from light to spotting. I guess it is also worth mentioning that for those first 3 days, I will wake up to that dreaded morning gush.

Should I stick to size 2 or would size 1 be more ideal for the overall 7 days I'd be using the cup? Do people usually use two cups to deal with heavy and light flows within one period cycle? People keep saying the large Lunette is a lot stiffer, which is why I'm worried it might make me feel like I need to pee all the time (I find tampons sometimes do this to me, if I use super absorbency ones). If anyone owns both Lunette sizes, any comments/observations would be really helpful!

Thanks in advance x
