    Default Menstrual Cup - folding techniques.

    *yep - putting this in the 'general chat' section *
    (because I know there are a number of people interested in cups and think this thread might get 'lost' if I tuck it in the cloth pad section)

    I have been having issues with getting my cup to sit right.

    For the last 5years I've been doing a 'c' fold --but checked the lunette site and it has changed a whole lot since I bought my cup - and now has a quick vid on a number of different techniques.

    ...so today I've trialled the '7' fold. - so far it's okay, needs some help to pop open though.
    Will try some more in time.

    Just thought I'd share the video for anyone who may be interested

    It never occured to me to name different folds

    I use the "scrunch it up and shove it up and hope you feel the suction cap stick" fold!

    But I'll watch the vid. I might learn a new one!

    I have no idea what fold I used to use when I wore cups and I don't want to open the video in the middle of this quiet telstra shop

    I used to squeeze the sides while pushing in the middle, and it kinda folded into 3? I'm not very good at explaining!
