My first time using a menstraul cup is the June cup and it worked perfectly when I first used it. It opened and there was no spilling. Very easy to use.

However when I tried to use it again at the end of my period and at the start of my period the next month, the cup would not open – meaning that there was no seal (I checked with my finger). It was almost as though there was no space in my vaginal canal for the cup to expand.

So I got the June Cup Mini and the same issue, the cup would not open after insertion. I’ve used the c-fold and punch down method but nothing has worked so far.

What would you suggest I do?
