So, I came here a while back wondering what this whole cup business was about, analyzing brands, tra la la. I ordered a small Lunette Selene a couple weeks ago after Paypal failed to allow me to purchase a Fleurcup, and I honestly couldn't be happier.

My cervix is somewhat low, and my flow isn't super heavy, so this cup is a dream in my eyes. It is the perfect balance of softness and firmness for me. All I had to do to ease comfort was cut off half the stem, but that was no problem. It's only the first day of my first cycle with it, and I can't even feel it when it's in. I have been using the C fold, which has yet to give me issues. I am genuinely surprised that I found something so perfect on the first try! I originally was drawn to the idea of cups because I hated looking at all the waste I would accumulate after a week of bleeding into disposables, and tampons dried me out/only worked half the time due to me fudging up their position. I bought a few cloth pads, but I always ended up somehow bleeding off to the side where the fabric wasn't as thick. As you can imagine, I have made quite a mess in my adventures. I went through peroxide like there was no tomorrow. Not anymore, though!

I guess my point is that I am ecstatic about this wonderful little silicone contraption, and thanks to this community, I figured out what was right for me personally. Keep on being awesome. Your helpfulness is unbelievable!  :)

I am so glad that you found something that works for you so well! I had a similar experience! :) A cup dream come true on the first brand & size(s)... I did research on here, got familiar with my body, and referenced the size charts before I made my decision. I also use the C fold... nothing else wants to work for me which is fine with me because after a few struggles and a lot of practice, the Cfold works perfectly for me now :)

Just a quick question though... what happened with PayPal and the Fleurcup? I'm just curious because I bought a small and large Fleurcup and had to use PayPal to buy it since that is the only option, and I had no issues.

When I was making my final decisions, I was deciding between Fleurcup, MeLuna, and Lunette. I finally decided on Fleurcup and I couldn't be happier! I may try another brand at some point but I can' afford it right now and what I have works perfectly and I am so happy with it so there is no need for me to try another brand soon anyway. :)

Ah, yes, the Paypal thing. For some reason it kept saying my card was invalid. It wasn't a gift card, and it worked on the Lunette site, so I didn't understand. The fraud line for my bank actually called my house because I tried several times to order it.

Oh well. I found a cup that worked for me, despite it costing more.

I'm happy you had similar luck on the first try! :)

Oh!! I see. I had a feeling that mine would be blocked since it was overseas and it was blocked at first. I called my cr card company, told them that I was purchasing via PayPal from France and the amount, and then it went through right after that :)

Despite that, I am glad that you found a cup that works for you :)

Thanks, me too!
