How did you decide upon which menstrual cup to use?

0

With so many brands of menstrual cups arriving on the scene, how'd you select the cup you're currently using?  Myself, I learned about the DivaCup first, so I tried that one first.  It's working for me, so I haven't tried any others, yet.  Have you tried more than one?  Which ones?  How did they work for you?

Check it out - we have our options!  They're not all available in our own respective countries, but more and more people are attaining access to them, whether they know it (yet) or not.  I find this exciting. :D

I started with Mooncup 10 years ago, about 5 years in my Mooncup was a bit worse for ware due to misuse so I decided to get another cup. I'd been lucky enough to have won two cups, but also I'll admit that I tried some of the sample cups companies had sent me because I've got enough to spare...and how can I recommend them if I've not tried them myself, right?

The first cup I tried after Mooncup was Ladycup and it worked so well that the others just weren't as good by comparrison - it's not the best for capacity and was tricky to remove at first, but it was so flexible it practically jumped up in there and it sat high so as the stem didn't irritate me like it did with my Mooncup (I'm one of the few women who are unable to trim stems). 

I've tried Mooncup, Divacup, Lunette, MeLuna, Femmecup, and Ladycup, also Softcups and diaphragms as menstrual cups.

 I'm getting a meluna because I researched they are good for teens and have lots of options! I am getting the sale starter kit which comes with a small and a medium, a medium and a large and large and an extra large I think hahah I think this is good how they have the different sizes together so you can see which one you like best  :D

 The most foolproof way to decide is to go off of sizing. There is an AWESOME community over on Livejournal that has size charts, capacity charts, and even stiffness comparisons (http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/). Even though I used all of this, my first cup (a Sckooncup) wound up being way too short. I was bummed because otherwise it was perfect. So I would up with a NaturalMamma as my main and a Divacup as my backup, and I have to say I am way happy with both! Though I would love to keep trying even more brands-especially Meluna (so many colors and choices!). Someday...
