I was very excited to get my lunette size 1 in the mail and I tried a few dry runs and now finally have my period.  I have no problems getting the lunette in but it will not open.  I have read other posts and tried pushing against my vaginal walls to try to let air in but it still will not open.  Is there anything else I cant try? I really want to be able to use my lunette instead of tampons.

Try a different fold, one that you can help open up with your fingers. Triangle, labia and especially half diamond are good for this (my personnal fav'). If you don't know what I'm talking about, a quick googling will find youtube videos of folding techniques. Try facing the fold down towards your butt. Run the cup under cold water for a few seconds before inserting. Good luck !

I have tried the C fold and push down fold (both folds facing down) and I have used cold water. But I will try the labia fold, thank you!

have a look at this post:) http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/2618390.html?view=33283094#t33283094
when you try to push aside the wall, WAIT. the air needs AT LEAST 5-7 seconds to go in, maybe more (up to 15-20 seconds).

yes, the labia fold seems really good for this cup:)

Did you try to twist it from the bottom?
