This post is on behalf of a very close family member of mine.

She is 24, not a virgin, no pregnancies. She is VERY athletic.

She tried to insert a medium meluna and it would not pop open no matter what technique she tried. Also, the bottom of the cup the ring, and other ribbed stripes caused her discomfort.

Any cups we could suggest for someone like that?
help would be appreciated.

She is in the dreaded learning curve. She should read the replies under the insertion and removal tags, and then figure it out with the cup that she already has. It might help to enlarge and/or add anti-suction holes around the rim. Once she has gotten familiar with it, then she can decide whether or not it fits and suits her as well as she hoped it would.

If she would like to try a different cup, there are many size and capacity charts at the Community FAQ, including links to the ones at http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ There are other posts there that might also be of interest to her such as the Myths and different folding techniques.

For sports, I would recommend the latex Keeper, if she has no allergies. Haven't tried the silicone one to compare.

What type Meluna did she try? soft, classic or sport? I find the classic open easier tha nthe soft. She can hold the soft under cold water befire insetion to make it a bit firmer, if that's the one she has.

If that cup ends up not working for her, she needs to determine how high her cervix is first, and if it's low, a firmer Meluna may work well, like a classic or sport meluna or any of the firmer cups on the comparsion list.

I don't know if it is a classic or soft. We got her the combo pack from feminine wear. It comes with a small cyan and medium pink. It doesn't say wether it is soft or classic. Can anyone help me find out?

Cyan and pink = soft.
Meluna offer only one stiffness per color, so to better be able to support customers when they call for assistance with their cups.
