I'm using the llncs document class and wanted to change the margin of all pages, using the geometry package.

I use the following command:


The problem is that the left margin is switching between odd and even pages. Even numbered pages have the 'left' margin on the right side and the odd numbered pages have the 'left' margin on the actual left side.
