Omg, people.
I think it has FINALLY happened. I found my perfect cup! I cannot express to you how excited I am. :D

I've been trying to find a satisfactory way of dealing with my menstrual fluid for fifteen years. I've been through just about everything on the market, including several different kinds of cups. Everything was either uncomfortable or leaked or both. At some point, I thought cups would have to be the answer, but each one I tried gave me problems too. I bought the small Diva Cups first, but it was too long and painful. The small Mooncup (USA) was then too stiff to even get in. The small Lunette was a big step in the right direction, but would occasionally still leak. I figured if I still had to wear a cloth pad under my cup, I might as well not even use it. But I wanted an internal solution. I tried the small Ladycup next, and it was too hard to remove in addition to leaking. I almost gave up on cups, but then I saw that Fleurcup was having a sale, so I decided to order both their small and large sizes. Turns out, their large works absolutely perfectly for me!! It took me a bit to get it to work right... It got super-suctioned to my cervix the first couple of times because its extra width enveloped the fleshy stuff around it as well (scared me because I couldn't break the seal for half an hour and was in pain afterward). But over time my body adjusted, and I learned how to maneuver the larger thing more effectively... and now my last two periods have been completely pad (and leak) free!!

I'm just gonna go do some cartwheels now. Back to the normal proceedings. :3

Awesome! Love to hear when goldilocks is found. =D

Congratulations; such a relief, isn't it?

Maybe I'm biased, but I've yet to hear of someone for whom the (large) Fleurcup doesn't work!! It's my goldilocks cup too, and the one I've bought for... 5 (and counting!) friends. :)

Sadly, I'm one for whom the large Fleurcup didn't work. The raves had given me high hopes. It gave me a tension headache (as the Diva did). I'm truly glad there are so many who love the Fleur because someone bought mine right away! =)

Yet another victory for the Fleurcup ! Yay!

I agree, it's not *perfect* for everyone, I've heard of a couple other cases, but it's overwhelmingly great for most people, especially those who had issues with other, differently shaped cups. I also recommended it to three of my friends, two had no complaints once they were through the initial teething troubles, one went back to tampons (for now!) :/... I myself like it OK, but it's not my personal favorite. But overall, YAY GENIUS LITTLE CUP!
