I just finished my second cycle with the cup and it was FAB. And I never use that word...haha
On the very first day, I already had the large Lunette in since I was waiting for it. Oh and also, I joined monthlyinfo.com and I only had recorded 2 periods on there, and my last period was really late and put me on a 38-day cycle. I thought that was just a weird month of me stressing for finals, so when the site predicted that I would skip all of May and not have my period until June 3rd, I thought it wasn't going to happen. Well, it happened to the DAY. I got it in the middle of the day on June 3rd but I was all prepared for it! Then I left it in for another 8 hours and got to change it before sleeping with it not even being close to full =)
Then the next day, I had it in for a full 12 hours, and it was full to the brim but no leaking! How awesome is that? I can leave the cup in for 12 hours on my heaviest day!!! I actually thought my flow was heavy, but I guess it's really not that bad.
Also the BEST BESTEST BEST part of it was, my cramps got SOO much better!! I did not have to pop ANY advil or painkillers OR use any heat pads!! Before, if I didn't have any of these before sleeping I would be driving over to the 24hour Shoppers Drug Mart to get some or I wouldn't be sleeping at ALL. I slept through the night, and no leaks!! My bed sheets are SAFE now!
All except the next night, I was too confident and changed my cup at 9pm, went to sleep at 1AM, and woke up at 9:30am...so the extra 30-minutes past 12-hours made it leak and I got some on my sheets. I just have to remember not to leave it in past 12 hours on the first and second day.
By the third and fourth day I just used the small Lunette and small PinkCup. I don't know why but sometimes it is REALLY hard to get the Lunette in so that's when I resort back to the pink cup...but then I don't like removing the pinkcup...so that's why most of the time I'll try to get the Lunette in first. I can remove the lunette's super easily now. I don't even have to fold it completely to get it out so I get minimal spillage =)
Well, that's all for my second successful period with the cup! Now I don't have to dread this time of the month anymore! No cramps, no leaks...the period is now actually bearable!
