I'm 33 and have used my DivaCup2 for 4 years with relative bliss. Then I had my baby (C-section) and for the love of God, this thing won't stop leaking. I have insanely heavy periods postpartum and have to empty my DC2 every 3 hours during the heaviest part of my flow--with an overnight maxi pad as backup. Even during the medium flow part of my period, I still have leaks with the DC, something I didn't have to worry about before.

I've not trimmed the DC and it fits comfortably inside me so I'm guessing my cervix is high during my period. I also believe it may be dangly because it overflows and leaks when it's not full but the cup is popped open.

So, I'm looking for a really awesome high capacity cup. I was leaning towards the FemmyCycle but it seems a little fussy for my needs. I'm not sure that I care about soft vs. firm cups, either.

I'd love recommendations as there are cups that I'm sure I don't know exist (like the Super Jennie that I just learned about by browsing here today).

Thanks in advance.

As someone who has to empty my cup every 1-2 hours during daytime hours of cycle day 2, I can tell you I really like the Large Fleur. Many say it is a nice "mommy cup." C section or vaginal birth, your body has changed.

Most of the time I use the Large Fleur. I use the Super Jennie on my heaviest day because I get a little (15 mins?) more time between changes.

Loving the Super Jennie
I've never used the Diva Cup, but as a mother w/ a dangly cervix and really heavy periods, I'm loving the Super Jennie. It's not miraculous -- it still overflows at night on my heaviest days -- but it's amazingly comfortable, leak-free (during the day) and has very good capacity. I haven't done a side-by-side with my MeLuna XL, but I believe the capacities are similar; I just find the Super Jennie more comfortable.

I think the highest capacity cup out there right now is the Luv Ur Body. It holds slightly more than the runner-ups which are the Super Jennie and the large Yuuki. The LUB is a soft cup, slightly softer than the Yuuki but firmer than the SJ.
