Hi All!!!

I got the CORRECT cup from Meluna, finally (3rd time's the charm!).  A Large, Soft Basic (no stem) cup.

Today was first time using it.  It was harder to get to open than the lunette, of course, The cold water trick did not help, nor did the different folds that were suggested.  What did help was turning the fold to face my front instead of to the side or back, and pushing the walls away from cup and gently placing the cup edge around the cervix.  

So, day one isn't a heavy flow so i can't say much about cramps yet, but it's SO much more comfortable than the Lunette for me already.  No leaks either.  *crosses fingers*  Of course, I didnt leak with Lunette either, but just saying.

So far, I'm very pleased with the new cup!! I can't feel it at ALL.  Not even when I think about it. Soft menstrual cups are awesome!!

Also I got to tell some family about cups today and they were pretty excited! I love spreading the word.  I gave them the link to here. :)

YAY for soft cups !!! I'm glad you like it, finally. So half diamond not working ? damn. I thought it was fool proof. ;)

Nope, labia fold didn't work either. I ended up using just a C fold and then manually unfolding and working into place. Takes a bit of patience but so much more comfy!!

Big test is when the heavy flow comes so hope it passes the test!!

So glad because I loved my lunette but its suction was a bit painful. I knew i wanted to keep using menstrual cups. Thankfully so many kinds out there for us :)

I'm glad this Meluna cup is working so well for you. And it sounds like you've hit on the perfect solution to getting it to open! Now it's probably just a matter of practice makes perfect ♥

Actually I've finally gotten the labia fold working, it just really matters which way I have the fold facing when I insert it because my cervix is at an angle.

It's working out fabulously. I do miss that I could go up to 12 hours with the lunette, but only 6-8 hours with meluna large, but its worth it for the comfort/lack of cramps! :) Love it!!!
