Trying to use MELUNA

Please note - original message I wrote Yuuki and realized that I mean XL Meluna.  Thx!

Hi -

I'm NikkiG.  I have been searching this site for hours trying to find "the right link" to answer my question.  Clearly I've had no luck.

Keeping in mind that I'm already frustrated - could someone (with a very heavy flow) please, very kindly, tell me how-why-if I need to alter the holes on my Meluna?

My problems:

1) I cannot get it to open.  I have tried many folds - and it simply isn't happening.  Usually the cup remains crumpled or folded on the inside.  My DCs, Lunettes, and FemmeCups do not have this problem.

2) I have a very heavy flow and simply cannot find my cervix.  I have tried (with the aid of my husband) - for months to find it.  My GYN check up isn't for 6 more months.  More often than not - I have some leakage issues for the first 3 days of my cycle.  Toward the end - no leak problems at all.

3) I do have large clots - the holes get clogged - I clear them after every "check" which happens every 1.5 - 2 hours.  If I don't check this frequently, I often find myself in "soaked though" land.  I use cloth pads as a backup - those are the items that I find soaked.  Rarely is the cup full - I know that liquid near/above the holes causes leaks.

4) I thought the lip of the Yuuki could help stop me from leaking over when a clot is released - where the Diva Cup and Lunette have failed.

If I have missed information that would be helpful - please link me.  I genuinely believe that my inability to use the cup efficiently is related to some major error on my part.

If I can provide more info, please don't hesitate to ask.  I always use pads (cloth) as a back up.  I just want to find a way for my cup to work better.
