Hello I have been reading heaps of info on here, which is amazing. I currently have a juju (l) which i have alot of probs with leaking not popping open and coming out. I am quite active and I'm wondering if its too soft so I am going to try the meluna sport, has anybody got any reviews on it?

Re: Meluna sport
Do you have the large Juju or the small one? According to the size charts the large one is 5cm and the small one is 4.6. There are definitely a couple of smaller cups out there (if you need a really short one the MeLuna mini might be a better fit, I believe they're shorter and wider than most other cups). Does the cup come out even if you manage to get it to pop open? And when it's open does it stick out at all or the whole cup fits inside you?

That being said, I tend to struggle on my heaviest day too. Everything seems more swollen and my cup is harder to open, I often have leaks (not big one's but small one's).

Nothing can get past your cervix, your cup needs to sit around your cervix (much like if you stuck your finger inside an actual cup) in order to catch the blood. Figure out where your cervix lies during your period and angle the cup that direction a little.

The only other issue I can think of right this moment is a dangly cervix. Some girls find their cervix dangles more on their heavier days and if the cups capactiy is too small for them that their cervix actually takes up space in the cup causing leaks.

I have the large one.It does stick out but only on my 2nd day (I usually go for 3 days) I think I might have to have 2 cups one thats shorter for the 2nd day.
I think you maybe right about the dangley bit too.
When I stick it in the cup doesnt open it slams shut and I have to fiddle around with it and sometimes it opens, I can only do this quite close to entrance and then try to push it up.
But I have had a small win I tried inserting it standing with one leg on the basin and its seemed to hit the right spot, I still felt it at the entrance tho but it didnt leak so yay for that!
