  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...

Agreeing with everyone else :) it's only 3mm wider than a small Lunette, which may or may not be a good cup for you anyway :)
get the knack down with your mooncup first and then once you know what you like and don't like choose another cup.

you can use coconut oil if you don't want/feel comfortable with buying lube. Coconut oil is also great as a body moisturiser/hair oil so you can say that's why you want/bought it if your parents ask. :)

also suggesting lying down on your bed, knees bent legs apart for insertion at first as you don't have to worry about holding yourself steady, or anyone wanting to use the bathroom midway! :) relaxation really is the key!! :)

re packaging: if you email the place for ordering other cups i.e. Luneshop, zanashop, femininewear.co.uk and ask/explain I'm sure they will make sure nothing is on the packaging :)
