Newbie wanting reassurance

Alright, so I am a bit nervous here and I guess what I want is some reassurance since I am a complete newbie to the Diva cup!

For the last month or two I kept hearing all over my LJ about cups and about how awesome they were. I didn’t really understand what they were so I did some research. The more I looked it up the more intrigued I got. I followed the size guide and thought a Diva Cup would be perfect since when I feel around up there, even during my monthly cycle I can’t seem to feel my cervix no matter how far I reach, so I knew a longer cup would work. I also wanted something that would hold a lot.

 Well, I was originally going to wait to buy one because it is kind of expensive and I really don’t have a lot of money. But, I happen to be on my period right now and I went to go grab a tampon and realized I only have enough to get me through this last period and I won’t have enough for the next. So, I saw it as an opportunity to order!

 But now I am second guessing myself and wondering if I really did do the right thing. So, will I regret it? Will I even be able to use it since I am considered extremely small down there? Eeep! I hope it works out!
