Hi everyone!
Last month I bought the DivaCup after hearing how great it was vs. pads. I was really excited because I never liked using pads especially whenever they leaked!
Today I started my cycle, so I boiled the DivaCup and then tried to insert it after wetting it with water. The thing is is that it didn't go in after I tried for 1/2 an hour and I don't know if it'll even fit but that's probably because it kept popping open about 1/4 of the way. Or maybe I'm inserting it in the wrong direction? I'm a bit worried now that I've spent $40 on something I won't be able to use. Does anyone have any tips I could use to try to get it in that have worked personally? Or is it a matter of just trying and see what works?

Any sort of help would be _great_!
Thanks in advance for the help.
Take care.
