Getting it in is no problem. Getting it out...not so easy.

 I got the Mooncup (size B) a while back and this is my first period since buying it, so needless to say I immediately gave it a quick wash and popped it in using what I figure is a c-fold. That was pretty much effortless once I got the rim through.

The first time getting it out was ridiculously painful just because it didn't occur to me to break the seal. *Facepalm.* After that I've been good about breaking the seal and folding the cup back up again while I'm pulling it out. It's by far less painful than the first time, but even doing that, the cup has a tendency to want to pop back open, and needless to say that hurts like Hell.

Is there something else I should be doing to make it easier to remove, to compensate for the brim and the overeagerness of the cup to pop back into shape? Or should I give up and look for a softer cup with a less prominent brim? (If I got a new cup, it'd have to be something of the skinny persuasion.)

Thanks in advance!
