I'm 17 and wanting to buy my first cup. I've had the wort time with pads and tampons. I have a heavy flow,my cervix is just a bit on the low side, and i get god awful cramps. Plus i'm so busy it makes tampons and pads just the worst. I have to wear super plus tampons. Not only are they over full in maybe two hours but they make my cramping even worse. Pad are just messy and too bulky for me to realistically use. Recently I've been using softcups. They're better but i have a problem with leaking. I'm thinking that a menstrual cup will be the best option because they form a seal. Here's the thing, what kind? I've been looking at the Sckoon cup and the Meluna. i want something with a more settle rim (the diva and keeper cups look insane to me) plus if i'm buying a cup i might as well get a pretty one :) I've been leaning a bit more toward the Sckoon because i can get it on amazon even though its a bit more expensive. Also what size? i know it says small for pre-birth, but i'm worried about capacity. I know the MeLuna comes i'm more sizes. Or is there something even better out there? HELP.

Although I can't say much for the two cups you mentioned simply because I do not use them (although I have heard Melunas tend to sit up high and would probably surround your cervix, like so (0), therefore decreasing the cup's capacity), I will say that just because a website may recommend the larger size to those who have gone through childbirth doesn't mean that you can't use it. The vagina is meant to stretch anyway, so if you need a larger cup to accommodate your flow, I say go for it!
As for choosing which cup, go with which you think would work for you the best, not whether or not you can get it on amazon or not. I think buying the cup that is right for you on the first try over convenience is a better use of your time and money. Anyway, good luck with your decision! Either way you'll be getting a cup, and any cup is really a lot better than a disposable menstrual product! :)
