(no subject)

Hello everybody,
For those of you who didn't see the first post I made I'm a sixteen year old virgin. I just got my first cup on Thursday - a Ruby Cup - and I managed to get it in on Friday evening. I think I have found my "goldilocks" cup! It was quite easy to get in using the triangle fold (also known as the extreme seven) and it is super comfortable! It sits (I think) quite nicely around my cervix - I haven't had any leaks since I put it in. I can't feel it and the end of the stem is within easy reach. However, I tried to take it out this morning and found that I couldn't get the suction to break! It felt like I was trying to tear out my cervix! OW! I watched this video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLPBZz3uJEg - and found some other tips on LJ (including the spoon one!). Does anybody have any other tips on how to break the suction on a soft cup? I tried to get some air into it but I didn't seem to be able to get my finger to the rim... My cup has now been in for about 14 and a half hours. My flow seems quite light so if necessary I'll just tackle it out when I have my shower... I guess I did the noo-noo newbie thing - its in and open so lets just leave it alone and not see if we can take it out.....
Thanks in advance,

Phantom leakage?

Hi everyone.

I'm very new to cups - I got a large Meluna Sport and I'm now on my third cycle using it. I absolutely love it! It feels so much cleaner and more comforable than tampons. I always struggled to get tampons in right for some reason but the cup just seems to go in right first time, every time. And only dealing with it twice a day instead of every 2-4 hours? Best! My only regret is that I didn't make the switch to cups YEARS ago!!

Anyway, the reason I'm posting is because I keep finding myself rushing off to the toilet in a panic because I swear I can feel it leaking. I am convinced that I can feel moisture coming out. And then when I check there is absolutely nothing, I am perfectly clean and dry. Is it just paranoia because I'm not used to it? Has anyone else experienced this?
