Hi all!

I ordered a small CupLee after experiencing rectal pressure from the Si-Bell. It was better as far as pressure goes and it was easier and more comfortable to remove than the Si-Bell. But it leaks! It's not a heavy leak and I wasn't even entirely sure at first that it was, indeed, leaking. However, I felt a frequent "bubbling" feeling while wearing it, the outside was bloody every time I removed it, and there was some blood on my liner (somewhere between spotting and a light flow). I can also feel that there's a lot of room around the cup when I insert it. Does it sound like my assessment of the cup as too small is accurate?

Note: Aside from the morning after I wore it overnight for the first time, my Si-Bell has never leaked (and I suspect it leaked because it was full).

I have the same issue with my size 1 Divacup, even though it is the highest capacity cup I own. In my case, the cup is way too soft for me. I'd say your cup is too soft for you and you're crushing it. Maybe you should try something firmer? I don't have this issue with my keeper Mooncup or yuuki cup. If you are concerned about a firmer cup placing too much pressure on you like the Si-Bell, perhaps you could try a cup that is still soft, but a little wider.

It's possible, but the Si-Bell is actually quite soft and I may be wrong, but I attributed the pressure to the shape of the Si-Bell, not it's stiffness. Also, I wore the CupLee for ballet class. If the leaking were due to my body crushing the cup I would have expected dancing to make it worse but it didn't.

I was thinking maybe I'd order the large CupLee, but I don't know if it would help. I would consider a different cup. I'm not sure which one though. Maybe the Miacup because it has a similar shape to the CupLee but it's firmer (although, from what I understand, not too firm).

The large Cuplee is 2mm narrower than a large Miacup, and 1mm wider than the small Miacup. (All three are 70mm long with stem, according to this chart.)

Given your experience thus far, I'd lean toward the large Cuplee, since firmer can equal internal pressure.
