New with some questions (mostly about MeLuna soft)...

Hello and thanks to everyone for everything that I have learned so far!!  I am very new to this, so I apologize if I am asking things that have been asked a thousand times, but I haven't had a chance to go through even close to all of the posts on here.

I am currently in the middle of my first period using a menstrual cup.  For the most part, so far so good-- BUT, I have some questions.

I got the MeLuna Medium soft.  It is VERY hard to get out. Like I just spent 20 minutes in the bathroom at work trying to get it out, and I finally succeeded, but I didn't know if I could do it until the very end, and I was starting to get scared that I would have to get the thing surgically removed or something. I was trying to bear down the entire time, and also tried to wiggle it around in the hopes that I would break the suction, but it really feels so squishy that it is hard to get it to release.  I finally just ended up pulling and pulling on it until I got it out.  Am I missing something here??

When I removed it, it was really almost full.  I thought I read somewhere that I could leave these things in all day-- did I just get one that is too small for me?

For anyone else that has the MeLuna soft, do you do the C-fold to insert?  It is easiest for me right now since I don't really know what I am doing yet, but I find that it is hard to get it to pop out of the fold once I insert it... does that make sense?  I try to move the ring on the bottom around, but again, I am having problems because it is so squishy.

I'm thinking maybe I will have better luck with the regular MeLuna that they sent along as a freebie with my order.

Feeling a little frustrated, but I am not giving up yet!
