Hi Everyone,

I'm new to the menstrual cup community. I just started using menstrual cup this month, with some difficulty when taking it out. By the way, I have a juju cup. I have read through the posts on how to get the cups out so I'm going to give it a try next month. However, I'm also thinking about getting another cup because the juju cup is a little bit hard for me to reach and the stem is too stretchy and slippery to hold on. I'm thinking about the lily cup but I don't know if I should go with the classic or compact. Does anyone know which one is more comfortable and cause less leakage? (please excuse any grammatical errors, not native English speakers) Thanks!

Compare the dimensions of your Juju and the Lily cups to other brands at http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ Also look at photos of each to see if you like the rim, the base, the stem, etc.

If you are looking at the Lily Cup I would go with the classic. I have never tried the Lily cup but from other reviews I have seen on youtube it is comfortable to wear and the compact is great if you need a extra cup and you don't have a lot of space in your handbag or luggage. But the classic holds more. Also due to the firm rim of the compact it is easy to pop open but with the soft body it can make it harder to push up inside of you if you needed to push it up future. I think Por_Que_no has the classic Lily cup maybe they will chime in, in a little bit. Hope that helps a little. :)

I have a Classic for sale if you need one (size A)--you'll see it on the mc_sales comm a few posts down. (I have shipped cups internationally before so that should not be a problem.) I don't really get the concept of the Compact: a regular-size cup doesn't take up THAT much room in your bag. It also looks like it would be a bit uncomfortable inside. Also, your English is excellent. Congratulations!

thank you, everyone, for the comments. I guess if I do buy a second cup, I would go with the lily classic. But, in the mean time, I will give my juju cup a few more tries and see how it goes. It's very tempting to just buy another cup and let go of the old one(but it's not even a month old yet) XD

The good news is, if you decide you don't like your Juju, you may get a good price for it on mc-sales because otherwise buying it directly from them is ridiculously expensive with shipping, etc.

thank you for the suggestion! I will definitely keep that in mind in case I want to sell my juju cup in the future. Thanks!
