So I think I've narrowed down to Lunette and Fleurcup.
If you have Fleurcup how did you get? Do they ship to the US?

If not I guess I'll just go with the Lunette.

If you find you want to go even smaller but have more capacity than Lunette 1, check out sckoon! Because of the angles of the holes, it's tinier and holds 23mL.

Re: ummm, how to decide which menstral cup?

Interesting mommypockets!! I choose the US moon cup mainly because it was a good price and I got free shipping through Abbey's Lane.

To pp, it hurt like CRAZY too in the beginning. I was almost in tears and thought there's NO way this is normal. I read a bunch of FAQ and saw that many cut the stem down. So I tried. At first it was better but still uncomfortable (no where as near as bad like when I first put it in). I then trimmed the stem down to pretty much nothing and it has been perfect. I'm not sure what cups would be similar in length with the moon stem trimmed all the way off but i'm curious though. An extra cup on the days I'm at work would be very convenient.

I cut the stem on the sckoon, all but about 1cm, and it's great!

It's $36, free shipping on Amazon, I think.

I love it so much that I might buy another, in case they stop making them or change them.

I love that it's the smallest/best capacity for size!

And no rim. It flares out, so nothing to "pop" the urethra. Ouch!

I have had great luck with the SoftCup brand. Not quite as environmentally friendly as the others, but better than disposable pads/tampons - and super simple.

The rim on those things are HUGE!!!!!! I think it's like 3" in diameter or something?

Similar is size to a diaphragm.

I've used Softcup and Diva size 2. Both worked well.
