Hey guys ! I just purchased a Diva Cup model 1 today. I am on day one of my period, and my periods are usually average. Not to heavy but certainly not light.

I am 15 (nearly 16) and still a virgin.I wouldn't say im extra "tight" but i am pretty tight, the most i can get in there is two fingers. But i dont do that very often. I tried inserting the diva cup today with the punch down fold, i like the punch down fold definitely because it is so easy inserting. I do have a problem with it opening up completely, I put it in and moved my finger around and i could feel that it isnt open completely it was like squished a bit. I thought maybe my vagina was just narrow, so i just let it go. It was comfortable after i got used to it, at first it felt like i always had to pee. That was annoying, and when i did pee it stung my vaginal entrance. Then it got better. I think it's cause of all the irritation and fidgiting i did down there. When i went to take it out, i like flexed and relaxed my muscles to move it down and then i reached in and grabbed the base. And that's when i knew it didnt work, because there was leakage all in my vagina and on my panties, and just a bit of blood inside of the cup. So i need tips on preventing leakage.

SO my main questions are:

1. Tips with the punch down fold on how to get it to open up completely? And please be very descriptive, i'm new to all this lol.

2. How do you remove it without spilling the contents inside?

3. I live in Canada, and I can't find any other brands in the stores except Diva Cup. SO what do i do if this one isn't right for me? and how do i know if it isnt right for me?

4. Will masturbating before insertion help?

5. Will my vagina always be irritated and sore after insertion every time?

Thanks guys, your comments are greatly appreciated !

I'm a pretty new user, I've only had my Diva for 4 or 5 months, but I thought i'd try and help so,

1.I use the same fold, so what I do is I run the cup under cold water before folding and inserting. It makes it pop open better. And then another thing you can do is to push on the folded part once it's in to try and encourage it to open like that and just kinda jiggle it around a bit and it should open, if not then you can take it out and try again :)

2. You just have to make sure you are holding it up when you actually remove it. That way it's less likely to spill.

3.You could always order online. And you need to stick with it for a few cycles and get through the learning curve with it before you know. I'm still working on it myself. lol

4. I haven't tried it, but I imagine it would cause you would be more relaxed and stuff.

5.No, It shouldn't be once you get used to it. :)

I'm guessing it probably just didn't pop open since it leaked, so if you just make sure it does, it should work much better :)
