I just started using my Diva Cup, it's worked wonders! However, I had one bad leak and now I can't seem to get the suction right. I have been using the 7-fold. I'm thinking I just need more practice. What other folds make the cup tiny at the tip? Punch down and 7 fold have been my best bets so far.

Actually, you don't want suction.

And I'm not sure what you're asking. Are you having trouble inserting it? Are you having trouble getting it to open? Are you looking for different folds to use?

See if your answers are at http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/ and if not, ask again with a few more specifics about what you are having trouble with.

I guess I'm asking for a fold that makes the cup small and allows it to pop open easily. I can't quite get a good seal going anymore with the 7 fold.

If you're having trouble getting the Diva to pop open, enlarge the anti-suction holes around the rim. Also read the paragraph about insertion in that link I gave you. There are also a couple of links to various folds that you can try but the 7 and punch down probably have the smallest tips.

There's a couple I would try:
Triangle, Double 7, diamond and the variation. Maybe the origami fold?
This video has quite a few folds.

I hope this helps with folds. :)
Sorry if it doesn't.

If you're having trouble getting it out you may just not be getting enough air up there.
When I had trouble removing my cup I checked out the posts under the tag of removal , and then seal & suction. They were helpful :)
