However, I switch between my Lunette and tampons. I prefer tampons when my period is horribly heavy. My Lunette leaks, and is messy to remove. At my heaviest, it will fill up in about 5 hours (3 hours longer than a tampon) . But with lighter periods I use the menstrual cup. It eliminates the need to carry around supplies, and I only have to clean it when I wake up and before I sleep.
Overall, I'm very happy with my Lunette, even if it isn't a cure-all.
