I am looking for my first cup, and I think the lunette, fleurcup, and scooncup are my best options. I am a 13 year old virgin , my cervix is about 2 inches in, and I have a moderate/heavy flow.
Can anyone who has all three (or any two) give me some descriptions. Basically, the stiffness for the small sizes for all of them, as well as whether it was easy to insert as well as remove. Was anything too stiff or did anything place pressure on the bladder/uncomfortable? Does softness induce leaking?

I haven't used any of these cups in particular, but I have made the switch to a softer cup. I started out using a Green Donna, which is basically a knock off Lunette. It felt uncomfortably firm at night and leaked a bit. I switched to a soft MeLuna and it's so much more comfortable and it's completely leak free! While I think the leakage was a size issue (Green Donna was a small and MeLuna is a large) the softness definitely makes it more comfortable. One thing you need to remember with soft cups is that they can be much harder to pop open once inside. My Green Donna opened fully without much effort, but my soft MeLuna takes alot more effort to get it fully open. Just something to keep in mind.

I have a small and large Lunette and a small and large Fleurcup. The Fleurcups are much softer than the Lunettes. The large Lunette is one of the stiffer cups on the market. The small Lunette is much softer than the large but stiffer than the Fleurcups.

Out of the 4 cups, I find the small Lunette to be the hardest to insert and remove. The Fleurcups are probably the easiest to remove and the large Lunette the easiest to insert. I don't find any of the cups to be uncomfortable but I have a high cervix.

I hope this helps and good luck with your choice.

This might be a bit late, but I have a small lunette, small and large fleur, and small sckoon.

Out of these, the small lunette is the stiffest, followed by the small then large fleur, the sckoon is the softest.

While I like and use them all, the sckoon is the only one I can insert successfully and painlessly every time, although it tends not to pop open as readily as the others. Also it does take me longer to remove the sckoon because of the stretchy stem, but it never hurts because it's really soft.

Basically, I was enjoying the lunette until I got the Fleurs, then the Sckoon came along and pushed them all aside.

I've not had any leakage issues with any of them, and I consider my flow to be on the heavy side...when I used to use pads I only wore the night ones, and even during the day I used to have to extend the pads on the heaviest days, and at night always.
