I wanted to tell everyone that I ordered my Lunette Selene the other day!  I'm excited to get it and hope that it arrives before my lovely gift decides to visit this week!

I'm debating on which cup to choose for a second cup though?  I'm going between MeLuna Classic (I want a clear cup) and the Fleurcup.  I heard MeLuna is a bit wider and that Fleurcup is more narrow shaped and with me being a virgin, I thought that would be better, but I like how "soft" apparently MeLuna is. 

Any suggestions?

just agreeing with everyone that it's better to wait and see how your small Lunette works for you.
btw clear cups stain easily:( wish i had got cyan and not clear glitter...

I sure hope the Lunette Selene works out! I chose it because it didn't seem TOO small. If I measured correctly, my cervix is about 1.5 inches to 2 inches high (average I guess?) when I'm on my cycle. I was really bad at finding out exactly WHERE it was...*sigh*

I'm excited for my little light blue cup! I am praying that it works out, the only thing I'm nervous about is removal, like worried about if the cup goes too far up inside, but I'm sure it won't! I think if I keeo a positive attitude, I can make anything work (I'm such an optimist, haha). I even had problems with tampons hanging out of my sometimes because they would be too "long"

Hopefully, this will be my perfect cup :) But I'll definitely be open to trying more brands whenever I get the hang of the Lunette. That way I can recommend different types to my friends.

this can happen even if you have a really low cervix haha! on my first dry run, i used the punchdown fold and the cup travelled past my cervix while completely folded XD i had to bear down to remove it and i've never tried the punchdown fold ever since.
and my cervix is like INSANELY low, 1cm in if even that :D

oh well that's good to know then! whew.

I'm thinking more of the origami fold...it looks fun to try, haha. and yeah, I'm pretty sure I've hit my cervix before because every time I do - I get this bad sharp pain (I think I scratch it - my nails are very uneven from my nervous habit of biting them :( ) and a nurse told me once that my cervix looked irritated - I had tried to reach it earlier that day.

I think I'll be fine :) I'm not too worried honestly - and my gut was telling me to go with Lunette for a long time and if not that then Fleurcup. I'm really hoping the Lunette works out :) I hope to learn a lot more about my cycle and my body by using one!

I like the labia fold because it's like a c-fold in it's ease to pop open, but it squishes down smaller than a c. I don't like any folds that require downward folding. They just won't unfold for me in the limited space before my cervix. I usually irritate myself trying to make any of those work.

I heard the labia fold was good as well - I'll definitely try anything - the c-fold looks a little intimidating to me honestly, and I've heard punchdown isn't too easy to open...

I wouldn't worry about it going to far, but cup has to sit all the way up to fit and be comfortable and I wear a super short cup. There really is no place for the cup to go. In fact if you have a low cervix you might find the Lunette too long.

Oh good to know! Thank you! Yeah, I think I'm about "right in the middle" and I made sure that the Lunette was an "in the middle" cup. Like I said, I've had problems sometimes with tampons sticking out for being too long on certain days. so yup.

I'm excited :D I can't wait for it to arrive! It probably won't for this cycle, but definitely for the summer - YAY for no pads in the summer heat!

Whoops...I meant "my cup" not "but cup". Makes no sense the way I wrote it =p.
