I've used the cup for about a year. After a trial run with the Diva Cup (which was too soft for my needs), I started with a Fleurcup and it was great for a long time. For the last couple periods, however, it seems no matter how I readjust it just doesn't feel comfortable. The cup is obviously on the more rigid side as far as cups go, but now I feel that all the time that it's in. Has this happened to any of you? Do the cups change over time, or is it me? Is there a happy medium brand that I should try? I keep reading about Lunette and it sounds pretty close to what I need.

The same thing happened to me with Lunette. Perfectly fine for a couple of years, now all of a sudden it feels super uncomfortable, no matter what I do. Not sure if it's me or the cup either, so I'm wondering what to do too.

But as for the rigidness - maybe it's just me, but I had both Lunette and Fleurcup (both larger sizes), and Fleurcup seemed a lot softer to me. So much so, that I had trouble getting it to pop open, so I mostly used the firmer Lunette. So if you're thinking about trying something softer than the Fleurcup, I don't think Lunette is the way to go.

Have you seen the size charts over at the Community FAQ yet? Another set here: http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/

Maybe it's the SHAPE of the cup, not the stiffness that's bothering you?

Thank you so much for the link to the size charts! I knew that was around somewhere. It's a really tough call, even with the charts. The Diva Cup was very comfortable but so soft it would collapse on me and kept sliding out (someone on here suggested Kegels -- totally get it -- but there has to be a cup that works for me now).

So, as kuradi8 says, maybe it is the shape…

I love the idea of the cup, and they are cheaper over time. But, I wish there was a way to try them out without spending that money, until I knew it was the right one!
