Can I ask what you do when you need to wee? Do you have to take it out or does it not intervere?

It sits in the same place as a tampon so no it doesn't interfere.

I used one before I had DD, with the exception of the first day of my period I only had to empty it morning and night. I've used CSP since she was born but would like to get another mooncup (or similar) now, though we're TTC so I think I'll wait a while.

I know that :hohoho: :hohoho: :hohoho: I just thought that some of it stays outside the body. Obviously not though. It seems very big to putting in but I suppose 2 baby heads came out & it aint that big.

I thought it was a very 'school ladies talk' type question :giggle:

You can leave the stem on so it nearly comes all the way out, I cut it off mine though.

They sit a lot lower than a tampon. I had to cut the whole stem off as otherwise it hung out to much and rubbed me. Its still easy to get out as I can fit my finger round the side to break the seal.

I used one before having my baby and loved it- never leaked or anything. I plan to start using it again after my 6 week check, though am thinking that I will now need the next size up?!

ok im going to order one tonight :wine:

think im going to go for the meluna as they are cheaper at about £13.50 on the feminewear website,

question is what size, small, medium or large (ive had one vaginal birth, am 23, and a light flow except for first day which is about a medium)
and do i go for a stem, ball, or ring end bit? and basic or softer style?

im a tad confused :hohoho:

I love my mooncup too and look forward to blowing the dust off it when my cycle returns after BF. I started using it when TTC and was down after 4 months of nothing and then as soon as I started using it I got my BFP the next cycle! x
