I remember when the Diva Cup came out with all of the commercials and was thinking there was no way in hell that I would use a menstrual cup. Of course then I was just finally using tampons after years of just pads. But looking at the research of cups, watching YouTube reviews, and coming on this community I've decided I want to try one.

The Lunette interests me the most, especially Model 2 but I am open. My cervix sits about at my second knuckle on my middle finger during my period which is about 2in. I do have heavy days where I wear 4-5 tampons and maybe an overnight pad. That lasts about 2-3 days. It gets lighter from there. Also I am 25 and not a virgin although it has been about a year if that even matters.

If you have any recommendations that would be great.

If the large Lunette calls to you then go for it. It's a medium-length cup so it has a better chance of fitting than one from either end of the length spectrum. The width should be fine. And it has a decent capacity. It's a slightly stiff-bodied cup but I think there are more pros than cons to its stiffness. It has large anti-suction holes. It is nicely textured. And it has a tapered (versus a blunt) base. It's a high quality cup that (with minimal care) will probably last through menopause.

If you're still not sure, a couple of other favorites in the same size range are the large Fleur and the new large SuperJennie, both of which are blunt based and have wider bodies so they have slightly higher capacities (not that the Lunette's is low.) Here is a post that compares the three: http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/3473209.html

Finally, if you haven't already, skim/read http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/ for helpful hints.
