walkin 4eva

It's incredibly hard to open my rainbow cup, and it leaks all the time.

So this is my third cycle trying this damn thing, lol. Right now I have the Rainbow cup, pre-childbirth. I will also add I normally use S+ tampons and have to change them every 3-4 hours. I guess I have a wide-set vagina and a heavy flow?

I've tried every fold. I've tried inserting with the fold facing every direction and rotating it towards the back. 70% of the time it creates a seal flat, I've pressed on the walls to try and get it to open. I've pinched the bottom and bear down. It doesn't open or stays sealed flat, so I have to remove it and start again. Sometimes I think I have it perfect, it appears to be totally opened but lo and behold, 1 hour later I am leaking. And it's not left over slobber, it's bright red period blood.

Should I try a larger/wider cup? I've looked at all the cups and comparison charts and I still don't know what the hell to do. It's frustrating the hell out of me. Today I just used a tampon after 30 minutes of fucking with it. I want to like it so badly :(
