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.

I'm a bit older than you but like you I also have heavy periods especially on the first couple of days- I remember those super plus sized tampons well and do not miss them one bit.

I have had good experiences with the large Fleurcup as it's soft (should be fine for your cramping), wide and has a high capacity and yes, they also come in pretty colours (mine is green). You can purchase them from their website and they are quite cheap. The manufacturer (French based) also has sales quite often when the price can be as low as 9.99EUR, I think they're usually 12.99EUR. 3.99EUR is the shipping charge worldwide.

I also have a large Lunette but it is quite stiff and maybe not the best if you have a lot of cramping. The capacity is good though.

Capacity is more important than being pre-birth when it comes to cups so your gut feeling is right- large would definitely be suitable for you.
