Hi everyone! I'm fairly new to the world of menstrual cups, only discovered them about six months ago and bought a Diva size 1 that I've used for about three cycles. I'm 24 years old, no children, not a virgin. I'm assuming I have a high cervix because I have never been able to feel it even while on my period and when I have the Diva size 1 in the entire stem is inside of me, sometimes it takes some bearing down to even reach the stem but other times I can feel the stem in an uncomfortable position (not pain, just annoying). I think been pretty successful with my Diva cup for only using it for a few months. I still get residual slobber and leak maybe one day out of my cycle but I wouldn't consider it a major leak. I'm at the point that I can feel if the position/seal isn't perfect so I know if it is going to leak. I always thought I had a heavier flow but I fill the Diva size 1 a little over half-way every 9-12 hours. I'm in nursing school right now so some days I'm away from my house for 12-13 hours so I would like a fairly high capacity cup. I'm interested in getting a second cup and was considering trying another brand. I've looked at the size comparison charts (a few times!) but I feel completely overwhelmed trying to decide on a second cup because there is so much to take into consideration! Ones I've looked into are the Lunette, Si-Bell, and MeLuna. If anyone has any suggestions that would be great! Also, I apologize if this is a repetitive post. I've read a lot of older posts and tried searching the different tags but couldn't quite find what I was looking for.

As a nursing student she may not even get a proper bathroom break that would allow her to change in public restrooms. They are EXTREMELY busy. Even a year plus after switching to cups, as well, I have issues changing them out anywhere except the shower/tub--it looks like a scene out of CSI most of the time, since my flow's a bit heavier than the OP's--so I avoid changing away from home if at all possible, even if that means using a cup without suction holes and letting it "back up" into my uterus until I get home.

Edit: looks like OP said the exact same thing!
