I'm just wondering if any of you ladies have actually been able to insert without folding? I've been playing around alot with my cups just to figure out a bunch of different stuff and low and behold...I found out (with much practice) that if I pinch the cup closed and tilt it as to put one end of the fold slightly in first and then slowly push and slant at the same time i can get the rim in (I had to be real careful cause I felt as if it could make a little itty bitty tear if I wasn't careful). I then pushed it all the way up to the cervix and squeezed it to get the air out. It worked!!! I don't want anyone thinking OMG this chic is loose as a goose!!! LOL I'm not...just very experimental and have NO problems what so ever figuring stuff out down there. I HAVE had two children so bigger things have passed through that area lol. I'm just wondering if anyone else has tried this and if you were successful enough to use this as your means of insertion. Thanks! I want to let it be known that I got the idea to try this after being sucked to death by my cup upon it opening inside me. it would latch on to whatever was in it's path including the wall of my vagi LOL I'm like SCREW THIS. Anyway, that's how I discovered I could do this. It works well with lube.
