Hi all!
I'm new to the cup world, after months of research, I decided to try the cup since I'm tired of pads and tampons have always been uncomfortable and filled up with vaginal fluid way too quickly.
I got the Bree Lena cup, size 2 since I've had a vaginal birth(age 25)and can get it in fairly easy, but my problem is I can twist it around and move it up and down pretty easily, even though I know it's sealed. Should I be able to move it around that easily? It keeps leaking and gets uncomfortable after 20min or so.

Also, I HATE putting my fingers in my vagina. Haha I probably have no business using a cup if that's the case, but I'm just so new to it and it freaks me out a bit. How the heck can I get over that??

Anyway, thanks in advance! I love reading the posts here!

I don't think it's a problem that you can move the cup around, but since it's not working for you after that something must be wrong. If you haven't yet tried just putting it in, checking it's opened and then leaving it alone, do that! If that doesn't work, try using different folds - they may help it to find the right place to sit. Also, if you describe the discomfort you get that might help with narrowing down what the problem is.

For the squeamishness, it sounds like you've got over it enough to do it even if you don't like it, so you're well on the way. Just keep using your cup and it'll soon become normal to you.

I found it helps to get a box of gloves and use those for public washroom changes, and to use lube whenever I'm changing. If it's slidy and there's not much resistance, then it feels easier.
