Questions

Okay, so I've been looking into the various menstrual cups for a while and I'm about convinced to try it out, but I do have some questions and you guys seem to be very helpful, so if you could just help me out with these couple of things

First, is one cup better than the others? I know of the diva cup, the moon cup, the lunette, and the keeper...but I'm not sure which to get, have you or anyone else tried one and liked it or another better?  Does one last longer, clean easier, is one more flexible, easier to insert/remove?  Does one leak one leak more than another? And stuff like that...

Also, I absolutely can't stand tampons and I know menstrual cups are different and settle at different places in the vagina and don't destroy the pH balance and stuff, but yeah, do you think a cup would be a good idea?

Another question I have is have you noticed any changes in your cycle like it getting shorter or longer (either the full roughly 28 day cycle or the 5-7 day actual period) or have you had an increase in cramps or other discomforts?

I think that's about it, but if you think of anything else feel free to add, and thanks in advance to everyone who responds!

 
EDIT: Thanks a bunch to everyone who posted--you guys were really helpful and I appreciate your help!  I'm still torn, but I'm leaning towards the mooncup (uk) or the lunette, and that's pretty good progress, imo.  And thanks again!
