I received my MCUK a few weeks ago and tucked it away in the bathroom. I was actually excited that I started AF yesterday so I could try it out (I wasn't interested in doing dry runs). All in all, I think it's been rather successful. No major pain, last time I put it in last night had no spotting. Today I've had a little, so I think I'll get the knack of it. Taking it out is my least favorite part of it all.
I came here to look at different folding techniques when I started seeing everybody talking about boiling first and I thought "OMG, I forgot to do that."
I did wash it off with castor soap and warm water before putting it in.
Can anyone reassure me that I'm not going to have some hideous infection as a result of my negligence to this common-sense step?
