I saw in another post (pads vs. tampons) that several of the bees here use a menstrual cup and were enthusiastic about it. I looked it up and sounds really great. My only concern is that I have an IUD. From what I have read, it’s not a big deal as long as you pick the right cup (I was going to get a lunette) and are cautious with removal (break the suction first and don’t catch the strings). I have a few rookie questions, sorry if Too Much Information.
1. How hard is it to break the suction first and not make a mess?
2. I have frequent spotting- it sounds like I can use the lunette all the time as long as I am removing and cleaning it every 12 hours- is this right?
3. How high in the vagina does the lunette sit? My strings are curled up around the cervix. Is the cup right next to the cervix?
4. Any reason I should pick something different than the lunette? It sounds like diva cups are most popular but I read they are not recommended with IUDs. Does anyone know a cheap place to get it?
