Trouble with MC on the First day of cycle?

Hi everyone! I’m completely new to LJ and joined since this community has been quite helpful to me the past year as I’ve gotten used to my new menstrual cup. I prefer it so much more to pads but I have two questions (I’ve checked other discussions but my questions haven’t REALLY been answered though I’ve seen similar questions). FIRST, each first day of my cycle basically without fail I am unable to use my cup. It goes in but it won’t ‘pop’ open and form a seal so it just doesn’t work out. I use a LilyCup which I know a lot of people don’t use which is another issue:(. My second problem is that I still haven’t been able to not leak at all. I always wear a pad or panty liner because I will spot with my cup even though it’s nothing big, it’s annoying since I want to kind of give up pads completely. Please help!!! I find it really annoying every first day I can’t use my cup and I’ve never used one before this so I don’t know if I’ve just been doing something wrong this wholleeee time. Thanks in advance!!!!
