Hi!

I'm 23, sexually active, no children.
I started with the Me Luna Large Classic because I have a heavy flow, but I couldn't get it to pop open, so I tried the Me Luna Medium Classic. I Think I got it to work, but I'm not sure it popped open completely. I'm not sure I'm doing it right, the acrobatics involved with putting it in were spectacular. I have shorter than average arms, so I can't really get my fingers up there far enough to check the seal. Are there any folds that work better than others? I have tried the C fold, the push down, the 7 fold, and the squiggle. I have had varied success with the squiggle, but it is really hard to get it in without it popping open too early.
I'm determined to make this work, so if anyone has any helpful tips I'd really appreciate it.

THANKS!

hey!

I use the meluna classic in small because im really quite small down there.

At first i couldnt really get it to open up either. i thought that it was just the TPE in the meluna cup being not very "poppy", which is kinda true.

I got it to work by using the punchdown fold, inserting it about 70-80% and then popping it open by squeezing the bottom (it doesnt hurt, no worries). After that, i just push it in all the way. You can try this method, let me know if it works!

I hope this helps!

I will definitely try that tonight, I got tired of it this morning and gave up for the moment, but I'll be experimenting when I get home.

When you're not sure it opened all the way, does it leak very much? I find it difficult to check the seal too, and I know a few times I thought it wasn't open because it was sort of flat still, but then it worked fine so I concluded it must have been sealed. If the squiggle fold opens too early, you could try practicing until you're better at holding that one closed until the right moment, rather than just trying to coax one of the other folds into opening once it's it.

Thanks, that's a good idea. I got it to pop all the way open today, but I could really feel it, and I was tired of dealing with it this morning, so I just took it out. I'll be trying again tonight though. lol.
