When I ordered my ladycup, I got a 15% off code, so whoever messages me first can use it if you're going to buy a ladycup!

Now for my questions: I had a reasonably good time with my ladycup for my first cycle, I had zero insertion issues, but for removal I did have some problems. For one, it's pretty slippery, but a lot of that is the ladycup itself and the fact that when I start removing it, as soon as a start squeezing the base and trying to get it down, (tmi)  fluid starts coming down and gets on my fingers and the whole thing becomes a mess. What I have to do then is grab the rim with a finger and push the cup against one wall and drag it down a fair amount. When I get to the bottom, I can't take the rim out all at once or it hurts a ton. I've tried to tilt it so half the rim comes out first but that's still too much of the rim for me. I have to fold it again to take it out, and that's super tricky! It keeps popping open as I try to fold it. And by the time all is this is over and the cup is out, there's hardly any fluid left in the cup. Is this how removal usually goes? Is there any way that I can warm my body up to taking the rim out without folding it and not have it be painful? I think for a first cycle this wasn't too bad but I'd like to get better at it ASAP! Also, I'm considering a medium meluna for more capacity and the soft firmness because it would be easier to refold for removal. I've never had a problem with my ladycup popping open, do you think I'd have a problem with a soft medium meluna? Do you think that it would collapse inside me at any time whilst using it? That's my biggest fear! Thanks so much guys!

I´ve never use a lady cup, in a few months is possible I´ll try it, but I think is like the iris cup,is pretty slippery, yes, sometimes (I know that is bad do this) I need use my fingernails to remove.
I have a very heavy period , so , in my two first days,I always have dirty my fingers when I remove the cup..

I don´t understand what do you mean with your last question, collapse inside you? what does it mean?

The meluna soft medium can work with you, is not so slippery, so you could remove easily. About the capacity, I think is almost the same, I have a few and I notice little difference from one to another.

medium is just a name. it's very similar to many small sizes (lunette, fleurcup etc).
i hated removing my large ladycup, especially at first. i think you need to hold the two sides together basically, to squeeze it tightly enough that it wouldn't start to open again.
the ladycup is actually considered very soft, apart from the rim. my large is just as soft as my soft melunas, i've heard the small is a little more springy though.

also, most cups will be easier to use because the holes are straight and placed higher, and because the ladycup is extremely slippery (have tp at hand to dry your fingers!)
