miss fae to you.

just my two cents.

this is my third post here.. and third period with my mooncup. last month i was having issues with it leaking horrifically. i didn't know what was going on, but i think i have it figured out now. i was pushing it in way too much i think. I would insert it, feel it pop, then push downward until it was pretty far in. This would result in TERRIBLE leaking.

After reading a comment about how it doesn't need to really be in that far, i decided to try not pushing it in as far.. Now, I fold it (punch in C fold) and put it in just enough so it pops open.. the stem is completely out "in the open" and the cup is just in. It sort of felt weird at first, but as I was doing my normal stuff, eventually.. it kind of went further up on it's own. I kept it in all night and not ONE single leak. I'm amazed and thrilled..

I just thought I would share this in case somebody else was having similar problems. I still am not all that sure about where exactly my cervix is or how far it is, so it was hard for me to figure it out. But now that I've gotten it down.. I'm sooo excited (: Yay mooncup!
