A few questions!

I'm on the second cycle with my Meluna and so far it's been great :) I accidentally slept for 11 hours last night, and no leaking! Couldn't have even dreamt of that with a tampon!

Anyway, I do have a couple problems (more like inconveniences) with the cup.

1. I have never had the cup pop open on it's own. I have a Meluna classic and use a seven fold. Once I put it in, I always have to manually open it with my finger. I use the seven fold because that's the least complex to open by myself. I've tried almost every fold, and no matter what, it doesn't open on it's own. Once I unfold it inside me, I can let air into it and it creates a seal. But if I was to put it in and leave it, it would stay folded. Anything I can do?

2. This is a little TMI, but when I remove the cup, I get lots of stringys both coming from the cup and me. This makes it hard to tell how full the cup was..  and it's messy. Is there anyway to prevent this?
