  Okay, so I am a fifteen y/o virgin, and I would like to get a  cup. I (stupidly) bought a Keeper Mooncup size A, not reading the fine print, lol. At first, I was determined to make it work. But, when it arrived, I read horror stories about the stiffness and difficulty getting it out once it was in, so I decided I'd better not use it. Plus the stem is hollow. Just seems like a bad plan, to me.
  So, anyway, I'm contemplating getting a Lunette Small. I'm pretty confident it will fit, because my cervix is pretty low during my period, all throughout. (to second knuckle on middle finger, & I have pretty small hands. I can't find a ruler at the moment, though) I'm in between the Aine or Cynthia. Does anyone know what these REALLY look like? And do you think it'd be okay for me? Pictures on their website seem quite deceiving.
   Also, if you order on Amazon, is the packaging discreet? I don't want to have it come & have "Lunette Menstrual Cup" plastered on it. Usually they come in another envelope, though, so I think it'll be ok... I'm buying with my own money & my family does not know...

it's the latex Keeper that is horribly stiff. the keeper moon cup is softer. it's quite common to get a mooncup (whether uk or us) because of not knowing there are other brands - plenty of people are satisfied with what they get!
if you have a low cervix, your cup is unlikely to climb up and get unreachable. also, the small lunette is quite narrow, so it might sit too low while a wider cup would be able to get deeper.

it's much easier to choose a second cup than a first one. you may well be dissatisfied with a small lunette. if you try out your keeper moon cup first you'll know better what you want.
