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.

My previous cup leaked often, and I got slobber (that's what we call that tinged discharge you speak of). My current cup never leaks, and I almost never get slobber, either. The difference between the cups is my previous one (Diva) had tiny holes, and my current one (Yuuki) has holes that are 2-3 times larger. So, you could try enlarging the holes in your cup so it forms a better seal.
