Just posting to say I'm very happy with my classic Meluna XL purchase. I still haven't gotten the chance to try it on my heavy days because it arrived after that. It has still been a relief to be able to wear the cup and not have to think about it until I remove it. It's great to not feel it at all. I have a tiny, tiny fibroid that gives me the worst periods ever. I think it takes me 4 hours to bleed through an Always Extra Heavy Flow pad(2 hours with a more generic pad), and I've had to join two at a time to make sure the blood doesn't wind up on my butt and lower back. Just bad. I had gotten a rash. It was nice to not have to wear a pad or even underwear until the end of my period. Then there's some spotting I've had due to me not taking my medicine at proper times. Anyway, I've been so much happier since using the cup and I even took it to my gynecologist to mention it to him. He was suggesting I switch to cotton pads before I showed it to him. Who knows, maybe he'll mention it to another sufferer?

Oh and I had no real problem inserting it, though removing it was a bit uncomfortable for a while. The C-fold I used first but near the very end, the punch-down was so much easier. I do notice the cup is getting a bit oval in shape now when I take it out though. I hope that wont pose a problem in the future. I've only had it for about 2 weeks. :)

Thank you all for the info you've posted here in the community. What I've read here and seen on Youtube, plus a few other sites, has really helped me in making my decision to buy it. I'm happy to feel a bit saner with this purchase.

Pads used to give me rashes too! I've not once regretted my switch to meluna! Glad you're happy :)

(I have endometriosis and heavy periods too ugh! Makes life much easier).

I have fibroids too and my Gyno thinks cups are a great way to deal with the heavy flow. Not only are they high capacity but it's easy to measure and keep track of how much I bleed.

She knows about http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ and her nurses have asked to see my cup several times. I think they recommend them to some patients. :o)
