Not as easy as I thought.

I posted a couple of days ago about how I was late and freaking out. Well my period came. And I finally got to attempt my first actual period day with my cup---not good.

See, I know you all know that your vagina changes shape throughout the month. And I knew that it got "shorter" during my period...but I guess I never realized how short. My cervix is like, half an inch from the entrance of my vagina. There's not enough room in there for my cup! And in attempting to insert it (which I tried like, 4 times) I couldn't get it to go in. The one time I did it suctioned directly onto my cervix and hurt like hell coming out. (Yes I broke the seal) So I have two questions: is it possible to wear like that for any of you? And does your vagina get any longer during other parts of your period? ('cause mine usually lasts 6 or 7 days). It's not that I don't grasp the insertion process because like I mentioned before, I wore it a couple of times outside of my period and it was fine. HELP!
