I am having a really hard time trying to fold it and insert it. It seems like the silicone is very tough, and the fold pops open before I can fully insert it. I tried a few times, and I feel like I'm not inserting it high enough, but it's painful. I find that I do experience some discomfort when my husband is inserting and removing during sex. I also experience discomfort during insertion and removal during a regular gyno exam. My doctor said my vagina is sensitive. So what's up? What can I do regarding the cup? I just can't seem to get it inserted without any discomfort, and then once it's inserted, it's not high enough. I can feel the little stem if I walk around. Also, removal is very painful.
Do I need to just work on this more? Is the lunette too large? Help. I'm just started my period, and I really do not want to use pads.
** EDIT **
I finally successfully inserted the Lunette, but I can only do it while lying down. This isn't going to work for when I need to drain it at work. I'm getting so frustrated. I keep trying to insert while sitting in the bathroom, and I am having no luck. It is so painful no matter which way I fold. The 7 fold is the only one that works. I managed to insert it twice, and somehow the lunette turned upside down when I inserted it. I was so upset, and thought it was going to get stuck in there. I ended up having to pull it out from the rim. I don't know if that makes sense. Anyway, it just feels so painful, like it is just sitting too low. I can't seem to push it up anymore because the rim on the cup is so thick. :( Should I try the Mooncup UK?
