Hi! I am new to menstrual cups. I started with a small lunette 2 months ago and love the idea of menstrual cups. However, now that I have found this group I am thinking the lunette may not be my goldilocks cup. I have a small fleurcup and a soft medium meluna with the ring on order (I went a little crazy).

My qualms with the lunette are that it sometimes pushes on my bladder quite a bit (hence trying the soft meluna, but with its pronounced rim be a problem?). The stem also bothers me a bit bt my cervix sits so high I need the stem or at least part of it to get it out (after my last period I did cut it about an eighth of an inch though. I am 25 and a virgin so along with the bladder issue I have been assuming smaller cups would be better. I also have a very light flow. I have always left my lunette in for 12 hours and never once even filled it halfway! The only reason I didn't order a small meluna was because I was worried about leaks r not enough suction-especially during bowel movements.

So after all that...am I on the right track, or does anyne have any other cups I may want to try? Oh...I'm not a fan of cups with hollows stems.

Thanks!

The small Fleurcup should be very similar to your Lunette, only a different shape. The medium Meluna soft I'm almost positive you'll love, it's like the softest thing there is, it even molds to you anatomy while you're wearing it. It might take a bit of bearing down to retrieve it depending how high it sits, but that's all part of the learning curve. :)
