I have both the small and large Lunette (as well as the small and large Sckoon cup).

I just leak with both my Lunettes on my heavy days.

The other day, the seal broke within 2 hours!

(I'm fine with Sckoon, but it's so squishy that reinsertion at work can be difficult and I don't have time for that.)

So, I remember months ago reading about punching in extra holes.

Should I try this? Will it help? How do I do this and what size do I make it?

Thank you all,


I plan to buy the small and large Yuuki, anyone know how they compare in capacity and firmness/squishness to the Lunettes (and Sckoon)? Does the seal stay in place better? I've read some charts, but I would like personal experiences if possible.

The holes on the Lunette are already pretty big so no, I wouldn't make them any bigger. There's a section about leakage at http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/ Skim/Read through the rest of it to see if anything else jumps out at you.

Yuukis now come in three firmness: soft, economic, and class/stiff. The soft is comparable to the small Lunette in firmness, and the classic is probably comparable to the large Lunette. I've never held a large Lunette, so I can only go by what I've heard about it. I haven't heard much about the economic Yuuki, which is supposed to be somewhere in between.

As for capacity, my small Lunette and small Yuuki (soft) are nearly identical. My Yuuki is a bit easier to remove, having a much softer rim, but it's an older design and I'm unsure if the new soft Yuuki is still like this. The biggest difference between the two cups, for me, was the surface texture. The Yuuki was squeaky, the Lunette was not. They're very similar cups otherwise.

Thank you, I think we can become addicted to buying menstrual cups.
