Leaking when you use the bathroom is actually normal. When you use the bathroom, you push down on your pelvic muscles which causes the front edge of FLEX to come out a bit from behind your pubic bone so a little blood may come out too. Just make sure the FLEX is tucked back behind your pubic bone after you use the bathroom, then you're good to go. You can also opt to do a few kegels to help 'pull' FLEX back into place.
- Making sure that you pushed FLEX as far back as you can with your finger. We've found some of our customers don't push FLEX far back enough, so the FLEX is not tucked behind the pubic bone and is still partly in the vaginal canal. Kegels can help get FLEX in the right place too!
- Try inserting in a different position. Everyone's anatomy is different, so you might find that it's easier to tuck FLEX behind the pubic bone if you're squatting or with one leg up.
- Try The Thumb Trick! If you haven't checked it out yet, please do! It gives you better leverage and can really help 'lock' FLEX disc in place.
