hey to everyone, i'm quite new to menstrual cups i'm still thinking of getting one. I was going to buy the fleurcup but i'm still a bit confused as to which size to go for (they have the small and large). I have 2 children but they were both delivered by c-section and i have a normal to heavy flow on the first 2-3 days of my period and the rest of the time its a normal to heavy flow. Which should i choose?

Fleurcup currently have an offer on for two cups (1 small, 1 large) in clear or red for the same price as one cup! So you could get both and decide without spending any more money! :)

the sizes aren't black and white, many virgins use the larger size if they have a heavy flow and/or a lower cervix, and some women over 30 who've had children (vaginally or c section) can still use the smaller size, but might need the extra width if the smaller one leaks. As vaginal muscle tone changes with pregnancy (not just vaginal birth) and with age. They are both very soft so you shouldn't feel the large at all! :)

The large fleurcup is also a good option if your cervix is lower on some days as the slightly wider rim means it can sit around the cervix rather than under it. It also has great capacity for your heavy days! :)

I would have a look for your cervix on your next period (if it's unreachable/very high or very low/right at the entrance you will need a longer/shorter cup than the fleurs) and then decide. :)

why did you decide on a fleurcup? in most cases if you're choosing between two sizes of the same brand, you need to research some more. the companies just pretend that one of their sizes will fit everyone, but it's certainly not always true.
as you've had children, inserting a wide cup shouldn't be a problem so i recommend going for more width to maximize the capacity.
