I bought this cup after trying the small diva cup and realizing it was too big for me. I heard this cup was much more flexible, with thinner silicone. I saw a review of a girl who had loads of trouble with the diva cup and was in love with the lady cup. However, once I got this cup the upper 1/3 was actually thicker than the diva cup, though the bottom 2/3 was thinner. Different design from what the youtuber had, then? Though the lady cup a bit more difficult to fold, it was indeed smaller, so it was easier for me to insert once I mastered keeping the right amount of pressure on the fold. I also was having issues with the suction of the diva when removing it. It really hurt, even after the seal was broken, my muscles were relaxed, and I was moving from side to side. Then there was more pain as the cup moved down and the rim begins to peek, because the diameter got bigger, but it couldn't be folded much since it was full. So that was another downside to the size for me. I was really excited about the Lady Cup, but was disappointed that the suction hurt just as much as the diva, despite the much bigger holes.
What ended up working for me was a suggestion I read in a forum to turn the diva cup inside out. The stem has to be completely cut. (Mine was already gone b/c the stem always irritated me.) I know it sounds weird, but it really works if you're in a similar boat as me! Don't worry about not being able to grab or it not opening up. Just follow the same procedure as directed by the manufacturers for insertion and removal. I actually feel my grip is better with it inside out and insertion is easier because of the ring indent that forms. It's more tactile and you can stick your finger in the indent to push it further up once in. When it's inside out it's also smaller and I can take it out without feeling any pain of strong suction. Even like this, the capacity is significantly greater than the lady cup, so you can wear it with ease on your heavy days.
Given all these adjustments I can say the menstrual cup is truly the best alternative to tampons or pads. I never had discomfort or disliked these mainstream products, I just wanted to see if there was something better. (Not going to lie, the savings were the primary attractor for me.) I would still recommend wearing a panty liner, maybe even a pad during your first few tries. You don't want to underestimate your flow and leak all over your underwear!
Aside from the cost efficiency and the environmental friendliness of the cup, it's easy to use, comfortable, and performs excellently in catching flow without leaks. If I hadn't turned the diva cup inside out or only tried the lady cup, I would definitely be saying the opposite. So I will try turning the lady cup inside out too. Maybe it'll be my moderate to light flow cup! It's not necessary to have a light flow cup, I just want to try to make use of something I spent money on. I wish I knew what I know now about the diva and want to prevent you other ladies from making the same mistake!!
First I used it normally, but the stem CUT me, and so I cut it off! The part where I cut the stem off still irritated me, so I did a lot of research online (because cup use was still far better than disposables) and turned it inside out for use.
This isn't ideal because the "seal" (so it doesn't leak) didn't form as good and I had to wear liners!
I eventually tried 3 other brands (Meluna, Naturcup, Mooncup) of cups, some that were worse and some better. I eventually fell in love with the Lunette (smaller size)!!!! It has a grippy tab that doesn't POKE me or CUT me but is easy to grasp for removal, is just as squishy and similar in size as the LadyCup which is perfect.
Do yourself a favor and get the Lunette instead (it's the same size, it's squishy and small, it comes in blue/green/orange/clear/purple).. don't bet on the stem NOT bothering you.
