I tried the large fleurcup for the first time today, going from the small meluna so it was quite a change. First thing I noticed was that I started feeling achy cramps after insertion, and it seemed to be tugging on my cervix. So I checked, and the cup is flattened while sealed. How do I get rid of this suction? I've tried pushing on the back wall, to no avail. It feels like it inflates, but when I stop pushing it just goes back down. I'm thinking I might be too narrow for this cup, which is a shame because I need the capacity.

Read the paragraph about insertion and follow the link in the one about suction. Skim/Read the rest. http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/

try to hold the wall longer and see more tricks here http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/2618390.html
vaginas are very stretchy and cup width mostly matters for insertion/removal, and of course capacity. many of those who can wear a small/narrow cup can also wear a large/wide. and those who can't usually just have difficulties getting a cup inside, for example virgins.
was your meluna classic? it's likely just a stiffness issue. good luck! :)

The way I insert cups is to do the punchdown fold and then insert the cup slightly so it is barely inside. Then if you let the fold go the cup will open up. (Sometimes you might have to pull down slightly so the air can get into the holes.) Once the cup is full of air, push it up from the base.
This works better with firmer cups but it also works for me with softer cups such as the Luv Ur Body and the Super Jennie. Hopefully it will work for you.
