"directions for use" of menstrual cups

Has anyone ever noticed that the directions that come with these cups always shows a diagram where the cup seems to be just sitting at the bottom of the vaginal canal, ready to catch the flow? The directions never mention that where the cup really belongs is snugly over the cervix, with the rim of the cup encircling the outline of the cervix. Are they afraid it will look too explicit? it's ridiculous -- these are women's products meant for use on women's bodies. We all have a cervix, and from what I see on this journal, many of us are finding it only by accident through use of their cup!

Like, one fine day a woman puts her cup in, and it finds its way to cup over her cervix and she has her eureka moment! I, myself, was believing those inaccurate diagrams and putting my cup in just as iillustrated, and of course I had leakage and discomfort. Until my one fine day.

We should demand more explicit directions, and less queasiness on the part of the instruction writers! Are the writers men, or women who don't know about their own anatomy, or what? I demand real-woman directions!
