I'm new to this whole Menstrual Cup thing. I bought a Lunette small (27 y/o, baby via C-section and have relatively light flows). I'm on my second cycle with it. It doesn't really leak during the day unless it gets full although I still have normal discharge that is a bit tinged - should this be happening?
My big concern is at night. I leak, and not just a little, my sheets looks like there should be a horse head in there with me. I read somewhere that maybe the cup is un-suctioning while I am laying down. Last night, I was watching a movie (laying down on my side like when I sleep) and I FELT IT UNSUCTION!
I spent $40 on this thing and really thought I was getting the right choice for me. Now I don't know what to do. I don't want to get the large because I'm relatively narrow (I can feel the small and kind of have to take really long showers because I need a break from that odd sensation - and I can't imagine ever saying I LOVE my cup because of this). I could go a bit longer but I'm not sure if that will solve the problem.
Anyone have any ideas? I really want this to work but I can't spend $100 trying out different cups. I suppose I should add that I seem to do well with insertion and everything is suctioned when I put it in.

Even though your baby was a C-section, you may have grown a little down there due to the hormones associated with pregnancy. I agree with yayforcups that you may actually need a Large. I am only a little older than you, no babies to my name, but I wear larges to deal with capacity. Don't be afraid of a large cup just because you haven't had a natural birth :)
