Hi, all!

Here's my situation:

I bought a Meluna classic medium a few months ago. On every cycle there are a few days (of heavier flow) that the cup leaks, even though the cup is fully open and forms a vacuum, and when i remove the cup it's not full.
Could it be that the cup is too soft?
When i insert the cup it never pops open by itself, i need to "help" it to fully open, but once open it does create a vacuum.
Should i purchase an harder cup? I was thinking about getting a Yuuki classic.

Any advice would be helpful.

Thanks :)

It sounds like you need a cup with more capacity AND that you might have a "dangly" cervix that takes up room in your cup. Or you could just empty your cup more often judging by when it starts to leak.

Compare your Meluna to other brands using this http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ or other size and capacity charts found online. And while you're at that site, also click to read the Answers to Common Questions. Then follow the link in the paragraph about suction/vacuum. There shouldn't be any and that explains why.
