I bought a mooncup a couple weeks ago, and it came right after my last period, so I have been practicing putting it in between periods. It is impossible. I am 24 years old, not a virgin (but it's been so long, maybe I'm a born-again? ha...) In all honesty, I'm not super "in-tune" with the goings on down there, tampon insertion definitely had a learning curve when I was 16, and I am just so tight, I can only get the cup in half way, and maybe a little more when I use coconut oil, but then the cup won't open. Maybe I'll try making the holes a little bigger, but I really am struggling. I have tried standing up, with knees relaxed, or one leg up on the bathtub, and kind tried on the toilet, but was worried about dropping the cup into the toilet...I have tried all sorts of folds, punch down, origami, (C fold is an absolutely no go), the closest I get is with the origami fold, but still struggle to get it past the thicker fold. Also after trying for about ten minutes or maybe a little longer, it starts to get kind raw down there and hurt...so then I don't want to try again.

My period started last night, so I am trying to figure it out, luckily the blood didn't freak me out too much during the insertion attempts this morning, but I am just so antsy to get it to work!! Help?

Yes, enlarge the holes. And it's perfectly OK to only use it occasionally until you get the hang of it. There's a paragraph about insertion at http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/ Maybe it will help? I hope so.
