Hi I have a small Lunette and it is ok but I don't use it
a) because sometimes it hurts, I think it's the suction rather than at a specific point (do you think it's suction?) Maybe that could be reduced.
b) it's too hard to get out. I've had it for a while so I don't think it's practice but it's really hard to reach the stem, especially using just one finger. :(

Width is ok although less wide might be better. It's never leaked.

So I think either there are no cups that will work or I need a longer cup, maybe softer or less suction?

I'm looking at the small Si-Bell, the small Lily Cup or even this crazy valved cup called Victoria's Love http://theoccasionaltraveller.com/2014/03/21/victorias-love-review/ if the original long version (or any version) can even be bought.

I don't want to waste money trying more than one more really.

Please help.

Also a consideration, the longest softest Meluna that has a ring and tie floss to the ring? :S

Many thanks,

Skim/Read this http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/ and follow the link in the paragraph about suction. It sounds like you could benefit from a longer cup. Figure out if you want it to have a long stem or not. There are size charts at the Community FAQ that include stem lengths.

Hi, thanks maybe it's not suction but it feels like it... not sure what cup would solve that? :( It's not a poking pain, it feels like suction or something?

Si-Bell (from my research) is only 2mm longer than my Lunette. Not sure if I can really get anything longer, seems a gap on the market. :(

Get the Si-Bell (out of the ones you listed). The Lily doesn't have airholes so you will actually get a lot of suction while trying to remove it, and other users have complained about the Victoria's Love being too long (can't trim the stem), not totally working, having bad capacity, etc.

Oh ok, thanks, the only thing is, is Si-Bell very different from small lunette? it seems to be listed as only 2mm longer and I wish my lunette was longer. I think it's softer though so that might help it be more comfy/have less suction? Maybe I'll try it.

Are there any I didn't list that you'd recommend for me? Thanks.
