First time cup user!


I'm 23, sexually active, no children.
I started with the Me Luna Large Classic because I have a heavy flow, but I couldn't get it to pop open, so I tried the Me Luna Medium Classic. I Think I got it to work, but I'm not sure it popped open completely. I'm not sure I'm doing it right, the acrobatics involved with putting it in were spectacular. I have shorter than average arms, so I can't really get my fingers up there far enough to check the seal. Are there any folds that work better than others? I have tried the C fold, the push down, the 7 fold, and the squiggle. I have had varied success with the squiggle, but it is really hard to get it in without it popping open too early.
I'm determined to make this work, so if anyone has any helpful tips I'd really appreciate it.
