    What fold are you using with it? I found that by changing the type of fold i did assisted me in getting it to pop open easier. I found my Fleurcup pops open much easier than my Diva too.

    Sometimes I have to give mine a bit of a spin when it is in. Also it can be a bit more fiddly depending on where I am in my cycle.

    Thanks for that link. Might try the 7 fold... had my cup for a whole 2 cycles now and can't seem to get the hang of it.

    I would say it took me about 4 cycles to really feel like i was starting to get it. Now it is just so easy, so stick with it.
