Hi everyone,

First off I'm young (14ish) and started using a small lunette at the end of last year, it's all been fine - emptying every 12 hours, no leaks, etc. Up until now, last cycle I started off SUPER light (spotting) and then the 2nd and 3rd day where SUPER heavy, like I couldn't go for more than nine hours, it calmed down by the 4th day. This cycle first day and I'm super heavy starting to leak after 4 hours. I know I have a super low cervix (I can feel it practically sticking out of me when sitting on the toilet) so I guess this has something to do with the changing patterns. I was thinking of getting a large lunette or a large ladycup for the heavier days and the days that I'm with the horses for 10+ hours. (I'm and avid horse rider if that changes anything)

What are you awesome peoples opinions on this? And suggestions?

Also if I do buy a bigger cup will it stretch me out and mean I'm not able to use my small lunette?

Thanks so much everyone,

Sammi xxx

see this about tightness: http://www.scarleteen.com/article/advice/a_few_choice_words_about_tightness
basically, no, it's not about stretching out, it's about learning to accomodate larger objects. after all, you won't need a new cup just from becoming sexually active.
getting a higher capacity cup is a good idea, but the specific ones you're considering aren't the best options. the large ladycup has roughly the same capacity as the small lunette, whereas the large lunette is much stiffer than the small. if you have a low/dangly cervix, you'll reach the best capacity with a cup that has a rounded bottom, like a large fleurcup. assuming you like your small lunette's softness, there are many soft large cups nowadays.

I'm going to second serpent's suggestion of the large fleurcup it has a good capacity for those whose cervix takes up room in the cup.

And ah....if only I could go 4 or 9 hours without emptying the cup on my heavy days.

Ya know how the wind whistles and howls on windy days?
Ya know where that sound is coming from?
Sexually active women's vaginas.
And you should hear the sounds that come out of those who have had kids!

Of course, I'm kidding. No, putting things into your vagina will not stretch it out.
