Am I just not meant for cups?

After inserting my cup I can't manage to get a finger up to the top of the cup to check for suction.The first time I got my cup in it didn't open. The second time it did, but I couldn't check for suction and I bled a bit when taking it out. I did use lubricant.

Am I just not meant for menstrual cups? I really don't want to give up, but I don't want to leak either.

I'm 16 and a virgin if that helps at all. Any tips are greatly appreciated.


I've made it through my first cycle with RuMPs! I didn't leak at all on my first or third day with my cup, and I only had a tiny bit of leakage on my second day. My period was significantly shorter than usual this cycle (whether it's do to RuMPs or just cause I don't know). I definitely am a convert to cups! I want to start doing reviews and stuff on youtube and tumblr!
