first off a huge THANK YOU to everyone for their cup advice!! I got the cup in and opened up, thank you for the suggestion to widen the suction holes a bit!

I wore my cup for 3 hours last night before I wrangled it out before bed, then have worn it all morning so far at work. On my lunch I noticed it had leaked a tiny bit so I took it out, wanted to check and see if it had overflown or if it in fact WASN'T open like I'd thought. I think my issue was that it was a bit too low--and so it kept moving. At one point I moved and felt some very awkward air bubbles pop out, I'm gonna assume that was the source of my "leak". When I reinserted it I tried to push it up a little farther...should that help? Any other tips for getting the good seal, now that I've managed to get it in...and open twice?

....this is so exciting!

When I first started using cups I had some leakage issues...turns out my cervix points to the left and the cup was opening up to the side of my cervix instead of around it. Now I aim the cup over to my left side, and stir around the cup with my finger to make sure I can't feel the end of my cervix. This has made all the difference for me.
