I've had my small Lunette for a year and a half with no problems. But the last few cycles. I have started having problems. Everything feels normal when I put it in, but now I'm having leaks. I don't know what to do, it's getting really frustrating. Any advice?

Maybe your flow has picked up a bit and you need a bigger cup? It can happen as you get older and your body changes.

Are these leaks or overflows?

I'm pretty sure it's leaks. My cup seems about 3/4 full when I empty it.

Sounds like an overflow to me. Don't forget that the cup is at about a 45 degree angle when it is inside you. I agree with the poster regarding age issues.

Just my 2 cents.

Is there a cup I should move on to? Other than recent problems, my lunette has always worked well.

Something with more capcity, maybe a large Lunette if you like the shape. I have one and it works fine for me. I have a very heavy flow for the first 36 hours and need to empty it every 3 1/2 to 5 hours. The only thing is that the large Lunette is much stiffer than the small, if stiffness is a factor for you then go for the large Fleurcup. I think it is of the same stiffness as the Small Lunette but has the same capcity as the Large Lunette (30ml), I have one of these too and it has the same results for me as the large Lunette. The shape is a little different but the dimensions are the same.
