So I ordered Lunette and it finally got here. I decided to try a dry run since it wasn't that time. The first couple times I tried the C fold which just didn't work for me. It would pop open before getting in. I then tried the push down fold which worked wonders. I got it in and removed it almost immediately without too much trouble. I waited a while then tried it again this time leaving it in longer. When I went to remove it later it had moved further in so getting it out was difficult with my short little fingers. I panicked too quick I think which made it harder. Any tips on removal for short fingered gals? I could reach the stem just fine but not the cup or base.

You don't need to be able to reach the base right away, as long as you can reach the stem that's fine!

squatting shortens the vagina so you might find that helps.

Bear down ‘push’ with your muscles until you can get a good hold on the stem and pull/wiggle it down side to side to break the seal until you can get hold of the base with your other hand whilst holding onto the stem. Then: either squeeze the base for 10-20 seconds to release the seal (you might hear a noise) or slide your finger up and press the rim inwards then slide out.

Try to remove the cup diagonally one corner first at the side so not to irritate the urethra and then the rest, keep a hand behind the cup as it comes out so it doesn't 'pop' out and tip up.

You can also partially refold the cup to make it more comfortable for removal: when it is close to the opening make a partial 'C' or ‘punchdown’ fold, using both hands if you need to.
You could also try the 'hot dog in a bun' removal method: cup=bun finger=hot dog, press your finger or thumb inwards and keep it there whilst you slide it out (shouldn't leak unless the cup is over 3/4s full)

When I remove my cup I bear down and pinch the bottom of the cup and tilt the cup side to side. I continue to bear down till the cup is out. It helps to keep bearing down so it doesn't go back up.

I will second what others have said, especially the bearing down, it really shortens the vagina. Also, I like to dry my fingers off on toilet paper during removal, it just gives me a better grip.
