I currently own a cheapie ebay cup. While I like using a cup, but this one seems to be very soft and I can't always get it to pop open and seal correctly. The cup I have is "size 2". I am sexually active and have had a child via c-section, although I did go through labor and he ended up getting stuck while crowning. I'm uncertain about what size to get for this reason because all the descriptions say size 2 for after vaginal birth. This is the cup I have in size 2 or large, whatever they call it. I am interested in the Meluna, and Fleurcup. Should I stick with the large size? $(KGrHqZHJFEFJ0Lgu)KVBSefs3p5!!~~60_35

If the large size doesn't feel too big, I'd stick with larger size cups. I've never even been pregnant, and I have to use the bigger size for the increased capacity. If you're not filling up the larger cup, the smaller might be fine. But I figure (if comfort isn't an issue) it's better to have more cup than you need than to take a chance on having too small a cup for your flow.

It's not uncomfortable and it works fine for my flow if I can get it to pop open. Sometimes I don't realize that it hasn't popped and then I get leaks. Definitely need something firmer.

The size of cup you need is more a function of the capacity you need and not so much whether or not you've had a baby. I've never been pregnant, quite possibly never will be, and I wear larges to deal with somewhat heavy flow. The super-soft cups are harder to pop open than firmer ones, though. How large are the suction release holes near the rim? If they are extremely tiny that may be part of the issue. There have been a number of discussions about how to increase the size of the suction holes...that may help. You may also decide you ultimately want something firmer (my bladder is really sensitive so I need to stay with the soft ones)

I feel like this is more of a softness issue. This cup is full after about 6 hours. I ultimately decided on the MeLuna starter set from mensrualcup.co and got the classic L and XL after looking at a bunch of photos. Hopefully it's a perfect match. I think the Fleurcup would have been to soft. Thank you for your help :)
