I really want one, but I'm a bit unsure. I have a bladder and uterine prolapse (lucky me, hey!) and I think I won't be able to use it, I'm scared it won't fit. Don't want to spend the money just in case...
But I'm subbing to look up the brand recommendations from others.

I have a Lunette and love it. Haven't tried any other brands. I cut the stem down by 2 notches and that solved the poking problem.

I have a meluna with ball end and I love it. I have a couple of different sizes and softness depending on flow and cervix position etc. I even use it with a rectocele and slight prolapse and only get leakage issues at night but I use cloth pads as well. I just tip it down the toilet or in the shower. Not messy at all.
I also use mine during ovulation coz I hate dealing with the wetness of EWCM. I'll never go back to tampons again.
You can insert it the day before AF is due and you'll find AF is less days coz you're collecting fluids not absorbing iykwim. No dry insertion again.
I bought mine from http://shop.menstrualcup.co
I could rave about them all day and I'll definitely be showing them to my DD once she's old enough.

I have a lunette I cut the stem off totally and have no trouble with inserting or removing. Took me a few cycles to get the hang of it, but totally worth it financially and healthwise.

Is there ever any leakage?
I had a look at the photos on the website and it looks rather large!! (Eek)
How far... up does it go?
Gosh; this is all so personal (blush)

Tends to only leak if not inserted correctly. If you run your finger around the rim once its it U can feel if its correctly in. Practice makes perfect

Since I got a Mirena IUD put in for contraception my AF has gotten really light so I almost never leak as I barely bleed at all.

I have a lunette and I don't love it but it's still better than tampons. I get a lot of leaks on my heavy days and have to empty it every hour which is really difficult at work. I do find it messy getting blood all over my hands. I've had it for two years so I know by now I'm doing it correctly, I think my flow is just a bit too heavy...

I bought mine directly from MeLunas website. There's instructions in their site in how international people can contact them before buying so that VAT is removed, and they also send seconds out with your order, so 2 for the price of one (or at least they were doing that 2 years ago). I have one with a ball and one with a stem and the ball is south more comfortable
