I'm 23, almost 24, years old and still a virgin(shocking I know) and I came across menstrual cups a few years ago while I was bored and on youtube. Not sure how I wound up coming across it in the first place. They piqued my interest, but I was too apprehensive to buy one at the time. Wasn't sure how my mom would have reacted if she found it, since she is fairly conservative. I've done research on some of the different popular brands, but am still too nervous to try one, but I am finally and completely fed up with tampons and pads and the associated mess and smell. Not to mention having to worry about timing and the pad leaking through to your clothes, or sitting wrong and bleeding through your clothes.
Which brand would you recommend for a first timer? After doing my research I've narrowed it down to mooncup UK, lunette, divacup and the new sckooncup. I like the mooncup for it's smaller size, and that I've not read too many bad things about it but am worried that it might be too small for some of my heavier days. The divacup I've heard mixed reviews about, and lunette is kinda large. I've not read anything about the sckooncup yet, possibly because its a newer brand. Which brand is the best for a first timer who is still a virgin? Any recommendations?

I agree with Kuradi8. The cups that you are checking out are all very different. Also what do you use as far as pads or tampons? If you post that it will be easier to help you find a cup that will work for both your flow and body. Also, I highly recommend checking out http://menstrualcups.wordpress.com/. It is a really great site and it helped me a lot with picking my first cup.
