    I've found using sterilisng liquid [as in tablets that you drop in a tub of hot water] makes it really clear when its dried. Mines never been yellow.

    Hmm.. today is my 3rd day as a mooncup user!

    my only problem as the minute is getting the damn thing out. I'm really struggling. I can't seem to get a grip on the stem at all (did I cut it too short?) and I can only really get one finger in at a time, which isn't all that helpful.

    ...did I just admit that on a public forum?! :O

    I tried a mooncup for the first time today and I cut off quite alot of the stem. I am a bit worried though as I could feel the cup inside me. I think this means it needs to be inserted higher up (?) or that I didnt form a seal properly (?). I'm a bit worried that if I do this then the stem will be too short (and I'm too tight to get more than one finger along side the cup), any suggestions?

    I have one but it wasn't very comfortable for me. I kept it in for a few hours and whenever I moved I could feel it moving too. I checked that it had formed a seal and it had seemed to. What am I doing wrong?

    Probably, it either wasn't far enough up or the stem was too long. Did you cut the stem?

    I have cut the stem, so I'll try putting it a bit further up. How do I know when it's up far enough?

    is the stem might to be sticking out at all once it's in, or should you not be able to see anything?
