Hello! I would like some advice. I need to buy a new cup, and I'm not sure whether I should buy a new model than the one I had before.

I've been using a Lunette (size 1) pretty on-and-off for the past six years. When I was younger it fit very well, and overall I was very happy with it, wore it horsebackriding/swimming/dancing/during yoga/travelling/everywhere. In the the past six months or so, I started having issues. I began to find it very difficult to insert and take out: I felt like I was having wrestling matches with my cup every time, which was both painful and time-consuming. Sometimes I couldn't get it to go in at all. When I succeeded it getting it in there, there would usually be some spotting some hours later.

Anyway, I got back from a trip about a month ago...and just realized that I forgot my cup behind. Whoops! So, I need to buy a new cup. Considering the problems I was having, I was thinking about buying a model other than the Lunette, but I'm kind of overwhelmed by the number of options. On the other hand, it is possible that the issues I was experiencing were due to normal wear-and-tear of the product, and maybe it's just time to buy a new Lunette.

Relevant info: I have a high cervix, I'm a virgin, and my flow is normal-light.

Thank you so much in advance! Advice and cup recommendations will be so much appreciated:)

Only YOU know how well (or not) your last cup fit you. Only YOU know what differences you might want in your next cup. Longer/shorter? Wider/narrower? Shaped differently? Squishier/stiffer? Different stem?

Use any of the size charts found at the Community FAQ (you'll have to scroll down a ways) to see what cups have the dimensions you think will fit you better, and then compare shape and other features of those to narrow them down to your final choices.

Also skim/read http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/ for helpful hints that might alleviate the wrestling matches.
