Hi everyone! This is one of a series of general advice and information posts that will be used to build a FAQ for new users. I don't have the expertise to give all the advice, so anyone that wants to pitch in, please do.

What techniques and advice do you have for a new user that can't get a cup in?

Ask yourself whether it is difficult because you are on a dry run. I'd rather see the "avoid dry runs" advice for beginners under the insertion FAQ, rather than the "can't get it out" FAQ, at which point it is a bit late!

On a dry run you are not lubricated, your cervix is probably higher, your muscles are tighter, and most importantly, you won't have any flow to decrease the suction upon removal.

So wait until your period is in full swing, maybe day two, if it's your first try.
