If I twist the stem, it just keeps twisting because it is soft but the cup doesn't twist. I have a small lunette. I am 22 and have never given birth. My flow is extremely heavy though; it makes me anemic. Should I just force finger and thumb in to try and twist it? I don't even know if I can without it hurting too much. And if I do get them in how the heck do I open them wide enough to grip the cup?
I really like the idea of cups but maybe I'm just not meant to use them. I chose the small lunette because it is supposed to hold a lot while still being pretty small; on my 2 heavy days I soak super tampons in a couple hours. =[
Ooh second question: I have a really hard time breaking the seal when getting it out. It hurts to get it out. Would a softer cup be easier to break the seal of?
