Well I went through a whole period with my new Meluna Large soft classic no stem... and WOW.  It's fabulous! perfect! Took me a day to master the fold and getting it to open properly, as its soft and doesn't really pop open like the lunette did.  But once i got it, no problem... fast placement, fast removal, fast empty-rinse-re-insert.  Simple as a tampon.  And it was so soft and comfortable that I could not feel it. AT ALL. My fingers can feel it, but that's it.  And for the first time, NO CRAMPS.  NO cervix pain. No painful removals!  

I know I got the perfect cup now! i liked my Lunette (and truly do miss the tiny bit of extra capacity) but you know what? with the meluna the flow was a bit lighter and more even, and anyway, emptying it was a breeze.

I'm SO thrilled.  Seriously!  Best thing ever.

I don't get it when I tell friends how fantastic it is, and while others are also excited (and 5 of my friends have gotten one themselves!) some of them think its so gross and unsanitary to "hold the blood inside". Sigh.... 

But oh well. I love my cup and the comfort and the freedom and the cost savings!!! :) i love not wearing pads and using tampons. I love going all night without a change.  I love it!!! 

I'm a very happy cup user :D

It totally pays off to find the perfect cup for you!

Just curious-- which size Lunette were you using? 1 or 2?

Well I've only used it for one month but for me capacity was okay. It IS a bit less than Lunette but still lasted a good 6-8 hours, though my flow was less heavy this month, so I can't judge how well it'd hold up. But it's been perfect so far. The comfort is such a relief!!! I'd normal dread every period, pain from tampons and horrible cramps and not wanting to go outside for needing bathrooms too often... the meluna seems to help with all of that. I'm very happy :)
