Hi all!
I have been using cups for more than a year. My first cup was a small lunette, it was very good, but during the heaviest day it can last only 2-2.5 hours. At the same time it would only amount to the second measuring line, so about 2/3. So I think I have dangly cervix, but at the same time my cup tends to ride quite hide and I always have to bear down to remove.
Due to my work I would need a higher capacity cup. I tried a large Meluna, no special feeling on the size, but it feels quite some pressure so maybe it is too firm for me?

So recently I have been looking at Super Jennie, I have seen people comparing to the small one with small Lunette or large Meluna. However, I'd be interested in the large size for the capacity, I hace seen people who had same experience with smaller cups with no problem woth the large SJ. But then some said it's really huge. I don't know the small SJ would buy me more time, as I'll be going on trip of a month to very poor rural country with merely dry latrine, so it'd really ease my mind if I can have at least 4 hours for change.

So is there anyone out here having similar situation, and any suggestions?

I would try the large if I were you. They shape and capacity would be good for a dangly cervix. I have a heavy flow on days 2 and 3 and the SJ large buys me more time than any of my other cups. It is more comfortable (since it is so soft) too!

Getting it to open can take a bit of work, but it's doable once you get the hang of it.

Thanks! What cup did you use before SJ? I was only worrying a bit about the diameter, since it's even bigger than large Meluna. And if i had used big Lunette maybe i wouldnt worry so much... But most of the time i use a small Lunette. That is to say I dont have much problem, no pain, insert and removal takes only 5 seconds... And i am quite comfortable withy body or emptying in public toilet (as i have to on my heavy day with capacity of small Lunette)

Maybe i should try the large and hope for the best! ;) thanks though!

I had used the ruby cup small and medium, and the yuuki soft size large.

According to the Super Jennie site:
S = 43 x 47.5 and 32ml to the brim
L = 47 x 52 and 41.6ml to the brim

Use these http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/or any other size charts to compare them to the cups that you already have.

This post has good photos comparing the Jennie to the Fleur and the Lunette -- all large. http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/3473209.html

The SJ size is like a 1.5 for small and 2.5 for large compared to other cups. There are probably comments about it being 'huge' because it is larger than other large cups, and most people probably haven't seen/handled a cup larger than the average large!
I have a dangly cervix and the SJ has worked well for that; I think in part because it rides up higher in me than other cups due to it's shape. I got the small size since I don't have a super heavy flow. I'm pressure sensitive and the softness of the SJ has been perfect, yet it seals well. It has lasted me all day on a regular flow day, where most other size small cups need a midday or afternoon change for me.

They do sell them in a 2 pack with one of each size, and you could sell one at the mc-sales lj after you figure out which you like.

LUB cups come in small, medium (longest) and large (shorter but wider and huge). Id recommend the medium for capacity and it sounds like you need the length. Its designed for high capacity and takes into account dangly cervix volume displacement.
