How's everyone doing?
I finally had my myomectomy done last month and I feel so much better. No more heavy bleeding, no more runs to the ER. And I'm so thankful for the large and xl cups I have used all these times, as they were a bit of a help. Now I'm just taking meds to get my period regulated again and waiting for it to come back. I figure I wont need to use such large cups again.

So I'm wondering, what cups are out there? What cups would be best to try out if I want a change from Luv Your Body and Meluna XL? And are there any cups besides Meluna that have a ring?

ETA: Has anyone done an extensive shore comparison? I like the Meluna Classic's shore and don't want anything softer than that.

MOST of them are listed at http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/
There are also a boatload of generics and knock-offs that are not.

Yeah, the chart helped a bit, as did the one at menstrualcup.info or whatever. Still feeling a bit uncertain and wish there was more info on shore. Thank you.

The FemmyCycle also has a ring but might be too soft for your liking (the LuB is supposed to be super soft though right?), and its design is also very different so you'll get a learning curve. I liked mine, but found the Si-Bell to have equal capacity and to be much easier to deal with outside the shower on the rare occasion that I need to do that, so I sold my FC off. But the ring made removal super easy.

The FemmyCycle looks so interesting. I'm giving it thought.

LUB is not soft. I have a medium and it's a cup that's made differently to others. If you do a squish test against another cup it will be softer, because it is made to be thinner in the body, but the way LUB sits inside, it is definately firm. There is not much horizontal give. Si-bell is soft all over, and I love that cup, but I needed more capacity for heavy days, hence medium LUB. LUB will definately take more getting used to. There are some days where I can not even use it. But it might be exactly what you are after.

I find LUB too soft. I dunno. If Si-Bell is softer, then I'd cross that one out for me.
