Me too kumaradosha - how do I make anti-suction holes? - And is it a good idea?

I am so glad I found this forum! I've just been through the same thing as kumaradosha (http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/3312416.html) was writing about. Yesterday I put my new Juju up for the first time ....

It will take a few days before my period starts, I was just testing it, and when I after 12 hours would remove it, it sat locked up against my cervix, and was not going to budge. I panicked because soon it was the weekend, and because it had already been sitting for 12 hours. Luckily I managed to get an appointment with the doctor.

After reading all the tips in her post, I have the courage to give it another go when I have made ​​anti-suction holes. There are only 4 very small holes in my JuJu, and I'll try to make them larger. In this context, my wise husband says, the holes must be completely round, otherwise they will tear after a while. Dermal punch therefore sounds like a good idea. I have found one, which is available in 2 mm. Is there anyone who knows how a dermal punch works? Must I buy one for each hole? And will the holes be relatively round and smooth?
