...that is, until the flood gates opened.
I have a low cervix, a tight vaginal canal, but I'm a heavy bleeder. The first two days of my period, I would only fill up the cup half way during the entire day (I did empty it regularly, but total volume in the first two days combined was about a full Lunette's amount.)
From day 3 to day 5, I can fill up the cup in just 5 hours. On the heavy days, I notice that there's leaking. The cup's inserted well (at least to my knowledge), the seal is intact, and the cup is never full when I remove it. But when I do remove it for emptying/washing, my vagina continues to bleed. By the time I re-insert the cup, science tells me that my previously clean vagina walls are now coated in blood and that the few drops of leaking I feel is just that blood trapped between my cup and my body...slowly oozing down.
Am I right in assuming this? I just want to make sure there isn't a problem with the cup. It only happens on my heaviest days and it's only 4 or 5 drops at a time.
