I finally decide to go for it and try a cup about 2 months ago. I am 36 and have one child. I also have a very heavy flow for 1-2 days of the month. I went with the large size Lunette. I have encountered a few issues and hope to find help here.
1) It seems like I am leaking on my heaviest days, after only an hour or two. When I take the cup out it is only half full. I am thinking that my cervix is low and filling the cup. Is there a cup that will work better than the Lunette for this?
2) It seems like the tab of the cup is rubbing and I get a bit sore.

I assume I needed a larger cup such as the lunette for heavy flow. I am not sure which cup or cups would be the best to try next, maybe I need one for heavy days and another for the lighter days?

Thanks so much!

I'm in the same boat as you (low cervix, heavy flow), and my large Fleurcup, sans the stem, is perfect!!

This. And OP, feel free to trim the stem off if it bothers you, at least if you've tried it for a whole period you should know whether you need it to reach the cup or not.
