1. It leaked no matter what I tried. I had to use a back up pad, which was very disappointing because I hate pads!
2. I don't think it was opening fully. I have been told by multiple gynos that I am very small down there, so I think it is too big. However, I have a pretty heavy flow, so I am worried about ordering a smaller cup.
3. I had to cut the stem off because it poked me, which was ok, but a bit of a pain in the butt trying to remove it.
4. Also, after only 5 months it was starting to get discolored even though I boiled it every month. I know its still sanitary, but it grosses me out.
So... the other day I made an impulse buy and ordered a Meluna classic. The sizing chart suggesting that I use a small, but the capacity is half that of my diva cup. I odered a medium, which seems to still be smaller than my diva. I'm not sure if it will be too big still. I ordered a ring stem, which I'm really excited about. Also, I got a red cup thinking that it won't get discolored :P
Anyways, I'm really hoping that the Meluna will solve my problems. I guess I am wondering if anyone has tried both of these cups, and if you think the Meluna cup will be better? Or if you have any other suggestions? I really want to love my menstrual cup! Thanks!
