Hi! I've been using a menstrual cup for about 5 or 6 cycles now and on this cycle I'm using a Large LENA that I just bought because I thought a wider cup than my Lunette Model 1 would solve the spotting I have. It's not full on leaking as most of the blood is collected in the cup but it is enough to be kind of annoying because I don't particularly like having to wash and deal with stains (I'm using reusable panty liners). I feel like I've tried everything I've read; I've twisted the cup and made sure it was open. I've seen a comment from one user saying how they have never been able to stop the residual slobber, and while I'm not opposed to wearing panty liners as it's a lot better than when I used to wear pads or tampons, but I'd like to know if there was anything I haven't tried that would help me master the menstrual cup.

Enlarge the holes, wipe well after inserting, and empty more frequently/pre-emptively.

Push our cup to yout tailbone
Once you have inserted the cup, try to face the cup to your tailbone, where the cervix usually sits. You can do it with your thumb. This method really helped me, bacause I also had leaking issues.

I hope this helps!
