Hi, there! I recently started my slow journey into reusable menstrual products and decided to take the plunge with cups. In June I bought a Mooncup UK but found that it wasn't for me (it was a sucker to get that thing in/out, the suction was SO strong and I found I needed to pee every five minutes) so I was put off for a little while until I found out about the MeLuna Medium Soft cup. I'd also tried the Lunette in the past but found that one to be a little too firm so I did a little research and saw that there was an even softer cup on the market & I thought I'd give the MeLuna a try. So far, so good. I did a little 'dry run' and everything went so much better than I expected. I was all ready for the insertion/removal pain but there was nothing! It was super comfortable and it seemed to open for me right away.

But, being the paranoid person that I am, I'm still wary. I've seen a few people have experienced leaks with this cup, maybe due to it not opening fully or not being in the right position so I just wanted to ask around and see if anyone has used this cup or has experience with it? And if you have any advice for a little newbie like me, I'd be more than happy to hear it!

I have a small classic meluna and a medium sport one. I love both of them very much. I only experience leaks with the regular one during pilates, because it's much softer and I have really strong pelvic muscles, so I use the sports one when I work out.
Ironically, the small meluna holds more fluid than the medium for me, because I have a dangly cervix and I guess it just fills up more space on the medium than on the small because it sits higher up in my vagina.
You'll just have to try it out and see if works for you =]
