Hey guys,

So for a couple of cycles now I've been using the Diva Cup size 1 and the Lunette cup size 2. I bought the lunette size 2 because I have an average/heavy flow.
With both cups I have leakage when I sit or lie down. I can feel the seal break and then the cup doesn't work. I make sure it is fully open and the suction is good when I first put it in so I don't know why this is happening and it is super frustrating.
I also bought the Lunette size 2 because it seems to have better suction, a higher capacity, and is firmer than the Diva cup. I thought the lunette cup would solve this issue but it hasn't and I don't know what to do.
Help please...
I don't want to have to figure out if I have to buy another cup and pay another 40 dollars. And possible have it not even work still..

I had a similar issue with a cup. And while its dimensions were just fine, I think it was the SHAPE that made it shift and leak. It's possible that because both cups are pointy (V) shaped instead of blunt (U) shaped, that may be why neither fit you well. If you still have your Diva, try flipping it inside out and wearing it that way. That turns it from a pointy to a blunt based cup. See if it works better for you that way. I don't know if flipping a Lunette will change it much -- but it's worth a try.

Also, do you still have the stem on your Lunette? While many like leaving the stem on to "anchor" the cup in place, sometimes I think the stem keeps it from tilting the right way to stay on a cervix. Removing the stem MIGHT allow the cup to sit at an angle -- even when you sit or lie down.
