Mooncup - pre and post pregnancy sizes

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Last summer I bought a Mooncup, but only used it for one cycle before I got pregnant. I had never had a baby and was 29 at that point so I bought the smaller size. Well, obviously, since then I have turned 30 and had a vaginal birth, the two criteria for going up a size. I really hate to have to buy another since I only used this one once. Does anyone have experience with this? Have you kept using the smaller size after giving birth/turning 30? I'm only 8 weeks postpartum but GladRags has free shipping for one more day so I'd like to figure it out soon. orngbiggrin.gif

I bought a diva cup after I had already had children.  And then I lost it and had to buy another, but then I found it, so now I have two.  I don't know, I feel like even the larger size can leak or pop out, but it seems fine as long as I change it frequently.  I think I was just trying to go for too long.  I guess you could try it and see how it fits now, and that would probably be the best way of judging.  I put mine in before I got my period, just to see if it was livable.  It was slightly uncomfortable in the beginning, but now I'm used to it.

I still use the same one I used pre-baby and it fits fine. I've had 2 babies in the past 3 years and also turned 30 during that time. My vagina seems completely unchanged in size/shape. I don't know though, it seems like this could vary a lot from person to person. When you get your period, try it and see!

No idea but I will send TracyGladRags to help you!  She is the owner of GladRags and can tell you more than you ever want to know about cups. :)

It's possible that your smaller size Moon Cup could still work -- it's one of those things that really depends on each individual. It's worth giving it a shot for at least one cycle, and if it doesn't work out for you, send me a direct message and we'll hook you up with a coupon code for free shipping! orngbiggrin.gif
