So here's what happened: throughout the day there was brown stuff on my liner, like old blood. Enough to change the liner every four or five hours. So I guess it was leaking right? So by the end of the day, the blood was coming out heavy enough to wear a pad, and when I went to take the cup out (it had been 10.5 hours) the blood was totally flowing and the stem of the cup was practically out. So I took out the cup and as I suspected, it was almost full but there was lots of residue on the outside and it was obvious that it was leaking.
So here's what I'm wondering,
1. Was the cup inserted right? It did catch my flow, but it leaked a little throughout the day, which is not right. So did I get a good seal? Or maybe was it not far enough up?
2. If it wasn't, how can I get it to open all the way? I've tried running a finger around it, letting in air, etc... And also how can I be sure that it is open all the way and that it has formed a good seal?
3. Now if it was inserted properly, why was it leaking? How can I preven that residue from coming out?
And just to let you know I'm 15 and a virgin.
