Newbie needs adivce... :-)

So, this is my first period with my Diva... day 1 and trying to get it in just right. I've tried some dry runs before, but I'm glad AF is finally really here so I can get 'real' practice in.

Anyway, my question is... is your cervix supposed to sit in the cup? I can get my cup in good and have it feel the most comfy when my cervix isn't in there. I finally just got it up there with it in the cup and it's really not too pleasant right now. lol It's not feeling nice against my cervix and the stem is poking at me too. I'm not sure what to do. I'm really broke and can't afford to try another cup, I'd love to make this one work, but I don't know if it's just me not doing it right or if it's just not something I'm going to be able to use. (Which would make me really sad.)

Another question is.... is everyone able to rotate it? I can't seem to get it to do that for anything. Mostly though I think it's because mine likes to be flat, but I'm not sure if it's just because of how I'm shaped, or how I'm putting it in or if that's okay to be that way...
