Hey everybody, I wanted to let you all know, I got my sckoon cup, the problem is when I got it, my period had just stopped, I tried it anyway, but I think my cervix had receded back into my body, so the cup either followed my cervix or I got the wrong size cup, cause when I pulled on the stem to pull it out, it was fine, but I'd let go of the stem to pinch the cup to break the seal and the cup would go back up and I couldn't reach the cup... and I couldn't get it to sit right, it felt ok for a while, but after a few hours it started to feel like when I used to put a tampon in the wrong way, and hurt really bad. So I'll have to wait for my next period to tell all of you how it works. :/ sorry.

This is actually helpful because it seems it like it will have reliable seal and smooth so that it will stay in place and not leak (kind of like LadyCup??, I currently use LadyCup and like it; i have low cervix no matter what time of the month).

good, I'm glad I could help. I don't think mine had a good seal cause I had it in there all wrong, and it couldn't actually seal at all, but if you have a low cervix I'd recommend the size 1 cup. Mine was lower at the start of my period, when I ordered it, then I received it right after my period had ended so now it's way up in there, and I can't feel it... so yea, it would try to get close to my cervix, and when I went to take it out, I just barely could even reach the end of the stem, then I'd let go of the stem to grab the cup to pull it out and the cup would go back up so fast I couldn't catch it... so I had to pull it out only by using the very end of the stem and it hurt coming out only because of the rim. I think it's the perfect amount of squishy-ness, there's no writing on it or anything, there's a long stem (thank goodness or my hubby would have had to try to get it out for me. They don't give refunds, so if it still is too small, I might use some dental floss and tie it around the stem so I can pull it down enough to reach the cup and break the seal. Hopefully it works, but I have no idea when my next period will be since my recent one was the first one in 3 months, but I'll let all of you know when it happens how the cup works.

oh, and I don't know if it's like a LadyCup or not, I'm a virgin to the whole cup thing. :/ sorry

I assumed it had a good seal cuz it keeps going back up from your description. I usu remove with two hands. One holding the stem, then the other pinching the base. Once you get a good grip of the base that it lose its seal then you can remove it. I usu do a punch down fold taking it out though. Some people do c folds but punch down is easier for me as i can get a good hold of it

I'd love to hear more about your experience getting it to pop open. I've just created a new post on this topic http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/3075996

Sorry, I actually haven't had a period since then, so I still haven't used it. I should be getting back on my meds soon, so I should be having a period in the next couple of months atleast, and I will let you know how it goes with getting it to pop open.
