I've tried every fold. I've tried inserting with the fold facing every direction and rotating it towards the back. 70% of the time it creates a seal flat, I've pressed on the walls to try and get it to open. I've pinched the bottom and bear down. It doesn't open or stays sealed flat, so I have to remove it and start again. Sometimes I think I have it perfect, it appears to be totally opened but lo and behold, 1 hour later I am leaking. And it's not left over slobber, it's bright red period blood.
Should I try a larger/wider cup? I've looked at all the cups and comparison charts and I still don't know what the hell to do. It's frustrating the hell out of me. Today I just used a tampon after 30 minutes of fucking with it. I want to like it so badly :(
