That’s my second cycle with a cup. On my first cycle everything went well, it popped open every time i haven’t had any leaks. I used the push down fold it worked great. However, I am currently on my period (second cup period) and it just doesn’t work. I had leaks every time. If I put up my finger I can feel it slightly that it’s not fully open. I’ve tried the c-fold, push down, different positions. But this time I just can’t make it open. Also I’m unable to twist it and if I pinch the base I risk it folding even more. Can you please help? I’m really concerned about it not working now but being perfect during my last period.
