I have used my lunette for two cycles now and I LOVE it! I do have a little residual leakage which seems to just be from what is "already in the chamber" once I insert the cup. Do any of you have any tips for this? (like a little peri-cleanse etc). Really has changed my life! Live in an area where even if you could flush a tampon, you shouldn't because of our antiquated sewerage systems (I used a former diaper pale:) Thanks for any input!

Congrats on the success! What you describe is generally called residual slobber. I do a finger swipe of vag walls and wear dark undies.

thanks! That is kinda what I started doing this cycle, but wanted to see if there something out there:) Still less mess than my previous method!

I've never mastered residual slobber, so I wear liners. Since I do some designer clothing resale and am sometimes selling off old items I no longer wear, I don't want to risk getting any slobber on the clothes, and a lot of my summer dresses would reveal dark undies underneath (but not nude-colored undies) so I'm not willing to settle for dark undies for a whole week every month...the whole point of cups for me is to not have to sacrifice my clothing choices at any point in the month :)

yes I've gotten these little liners that are so whisper thin which were great, and honestly its still better than a wet tampon string! some of the posts I've read said they would finger strip also, if i have time I'll just hop in the bath after a change. i had more this time than the first time but nothing too bad. i'm still learning the nuances:) and honestly I dont own any black undies-lol in the deep south its too hot i'm always wearing light colored shorts so most of my undies are lighter in color. but i wash everything in hot, so stains dont freak me out too much:)

Love my Lunette also! Luckily no residual spotting for me. What I do is I empty and insert the cup before I shower. Then same tip as already mentioned, checking with a finger if the cup is opened all the way seems to keep my residual slobber in check.

I also do the a finger wipe, sometimes several, to catch the residual slobber and then wipe it off on some toilet paper.
