So before buying the Mentrual cups I watched every youtube vid i would find and read most articles i could think of... So now im on my 2nd full day... The stem was uncomfortable my firt night and the next day... I ended up pushing it to my right side since the left felt extra sensitive... Now this morning i decided to try and cut the stem off of one of the cups... Initially i was scared bc i dodnt know how i was going to pull it out... But i tried the push method and it seemed fine... At that point i realized that the cup was still folded... Earlier i tried my best to feel around and poke at the cup to get it opened... I thought it was until it leaked... So i rinsed and re inserted... Kept messing with it and thought maybe this time i am ok... Still having leakage... At this point i am just going to put one with the stem back in and be happy... Hopefully keeping it to the right will help... Oh... I feel like the stem helps open it better since im able to tug at it a few times and that seems to have helped... Even then i didnt really know if it was truly opened all the way...

So i thought i posted this but didnt lol... So i ended up going to the mall with my friend and yup... More leakage... Good thing the bathroom had a sink... I got home and showered and put my other cup in with the stem... Im going to test my theory out... I got really annoyed for a moment...

Any suggestions???

Make sure your cup is opening fully. Watch this video if you haven't already. The tip about the punch down fold works well for me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2l_4n64MIyI
But with one of my cups I have to push the corner/edge of the punch up, the other cup I have to push the corner/edge of the punch in. So you might have to play around with yours a bit.

I wonder if the cup is turning a bit on its side inside you and is more easily able to turn like that without the stem to sit against your wall? That's more likely if you have a more rounded, shorter cup (not the super long/narrow iCare-type or those ones with the heart and moon stems)
