Menstrual Cups and Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Animal Testing

Hi everyone, I've been reading the posts on this forum (such a great community!) and I'm considering getting a menstrual cup. I'm 25 and not a virgin. But I also have IBS and trouble with my bladder, and I am wondering whether a menstrual cup could make these problems worse? During my period I already feel a fair bit of pressure down there. Has anyone had experience with this before? I'm considering getting a LadyCup (large) because I heard they are quite soft and I thought that would mean less pressure and more bending with the body. What is your experience with this?

I was also wondering if anyone knows which (if any) of the menstrual cups are tested on animals. I've heard some of them might be. I know the Lunette and MiaCup aren't, but what about the others?
