After many years of discontinuing my cup use (due to my BC option), I've decided to give it a go yet again. I'm trying to find a new cup that would work out well for me as there are a lot more options then there were before (which is kind of daunting) so I'm hoping I can get a bit of help here.

Years ago, I had the Diva size 1 which was okay but it was a bit too long. I loved the firmness but the length would sometimes hurt. I lost that one in a move though. A few years ago, just for my BC switch, I got a FemmeCup which I never got to use so I'm currently using it now and while it feels fine, it's capacity is problematic and due to it's softness, I have a hard time breaking the seal. A few days ago, I figured I'd get the Diva Size 2 and that turned out to be a big mistake because I can't even move without feeling it.

So I've narrowed it down to the Small Lunette, Small UK Mooncup, and Small Yuuki. I was was hoping that I could get some guidance (because I can't afford to get this wrong again). I've been checking the various comparisons, but I'm still not sure which of the three to go with because I think the UK Mooncup or Yuuki might too stiff for me and my uterus is already hyper sensitive. The other thing is that I did just turn 30 (which is why I opted for the Diva 2 instead of just replacing the first one), but based on all the dimensions, it does seem as though should stick with the smaller sizes but I'm worried about changes down the road. Any thoughts or guidance would be super helpful. Thanks!

I need more, I think that the FemmeCup is at .5 oz which hasn't been great. Back when I had the Diva 1, I think that was at 1 oz which is much better. I think the only thing that dissuaded me from the Si Bell is the softness because that's a huge issue I'm running into with the FemmeCup because the body is so soft (which has made removal really hard). How is the Si Bell removal? I know the FemmeCup has a harder ring and a soft body which is why I might be having issues with it.

Sounds like Lunette might not be a bad choice. I am using Si-bell large and Luv Ur Body medium. I really do not have any issue with Si-bell. It pops open easy, really comfortable, stem is great to pull the cup down squeeze the bottom and out it comes. The reason I got Luv Ur Body is it gives me more capacity then Si-bell, so I don't need to empty the cup while at work. The only reason why I suggested the Si-bell was because you said your uterus is hyper sensitive. N it is a great cup. I can't use Luv Ur Body on the first day of my period because it is soo firm that it causes cramps.

Thanks! I took the plunge and got the Lunette 1. I've been keeping a few others in mind for down the road and Si-Bell is on that list. I appreciate all your help.
