Well, I'm totally happy to say that my adventures in the menstrual cup have been rather uneventful. Yesterday evening I decided to sleep in the soft cup and found that the "C" fold does work best with a softer cup and a "punch down" works best with a stiffer cup. In both cases, because of the pubic bone in the front, it seems that the cups open easiest if the folded side faces back. I've also learned that one of the air holes on the cup should be right inside the crease of the fold to assist in it's opening quickly and properly in the vagina.
The soft cup is much more comfortable to use. It's not even that I feel the harder cup, but when I've tried both I guess I do realize though much I notice the harder one over the softer one.
This morning, I woke up and my cup was about 1/4th full. That was after a full night sleeping in it. And there were no leaks. That means that I could have gone to bed without my back up pad! So, this morning, I decided to "move down" to the medium size, soft Meluna cup. This one has a ring grip, which I can't tell if I like more or less than the stem, lol. It's easier to find and to pull on than the stem. Of course, I have to reach in further than I do with the stem. But not so much further that it makes any practical difference.
