I just started using the Organicup on Sunday, and I'm quite happy overall. but I have two issues.

1. It doesn't leak at all during the day, I've worn it to work, for dance class and during workouts, all fine, the longest was 9.5h, no problemo. But I've woken up twice at night now to find my panties looking like a slaughterhouse and the cup not quite full.

What could be the reason that it stays in place with all that activity but doesn't seem to hold at all when I'm asleep?

2. Also, I'm still having trouble with getting the cup out. My vaginal muscles squeeze it quite a bit on the way down, so it goes plop! open when it reaches the outside, and gets blood everywhere, OR to prevent the sudden plop I squeeze it too hard and make it overflow that way.

Any tips on these two things?

How heavy is your period? If you're not getting leaks during the day, it's possible the cup is overflowing rather than leaking. I don't know much about leaks since it's not an issue for me, but I think there's been a few posts about this. Try the 'sleeping' tag.

Figuring out how to remove your cup without spilling it is part of the learning curve! It took me about 3 periods. Try to stay relaxed and keep trying.
Hope that helps!
