So I ordered a Lunette and a MeLuna to try them out and see if they work better for me than the Diva. The Lunette came today and just based on comparing the two physically, I think it's going to be better; it's slightly longer, for one thing, and feels a bit squishier, and plus it has the larger holes at the rim.

Is it weird that I'm almost excited for my period to come again so I can try the Lunette out?

Good luck finding yours! So many options, I'm sure there's one out there with your name on it. :)

It's totally normal :-) Wearing menstrual cups/cloth pads has completely transformed how I experience my period, I actually look forward to it now. And I'm far from alone, lots of other people report the same thing!

Part of it, I think, comes from going from feeling 'victimized' by one's period (worrying about leaks, stains, buying supplies/keeping them stocked up, etc.) to being in control of how you manage it... finding it a positive experience is just so novel and wonderful :-)

I can relate, I'm still waiting for my period to start so I can try a cup for the first time. It's due today! I just hope it holds on until I get home from work. I haven't been this excited/nervous for my period in years hahaha.

For future periods, you can put the cup in before your period is due to start (Day/night before even) and then you won't be caught out! plus if you take it out later on to find you haven't started yet you haven't 'wasted' anything or risked TSS. :)

Very true this, it's happened to me more than once that I didn't EVEN REALISE I had been starting bleeding whil wearing a cup... Just how convenient is that ?!
