Hi ya!
My first post here and looking for some advice!
I'm on my fourth cycle using my mcuk (a) but really REALLY struggling with leakage. Have checked all the obvious things, it's unfolded, feels comfortable, holes aren't clogged etc...

I've had three kiddies and have a super heavy cycle, I'm wondering if I'm just too roomy :-s ? The cup isn't full and over flowing and leakage is much improved on the last (much lighter) days of my period.

Really not sure where to go next with trying to improve the fit, try something else. I really don't want to go back to tampons (changing super plus every two hrs on the heaviest day).

Any help appreciated, sorry if tmi!!

That cup is kinda narrow and V-shaped. You may need a blunt-based cup instead (or feel better with one). The Large Fleur is popular with moms and may be better suited for your capacity needs!

The MCUK is a low capacity cup. If your cervix dangles into the top part of it, there is very little capacity left in the pointy bottom. I use mine as a light days cup.

I think PQN's recommendation of a large Fleur is a good one.

Compare it and others using http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ or any of the other charts found online. Size, capacity, shape, and other features should all figure into your decision.
