hi divacup

So I started my period this morning.  Wore Gladrags all day and tried to insert my small Divacup for the first time after everyone else was asleep.  Unfortunately, I didn't feel comfortable enough to leave it in for the night.  All I managed to do was make myself sore. :( I'm glad I invested in the Gladrags, they're comfy and tide me over while I figure this out.  I believe in me!

I used the triangle fold, where you push down one side of the cup.  But I'm pretty sure it didn't unfold after I inserted it, and I couldn't figure out how to get it to unfold.  I'm pretty sure the instructions are telling me that I don't want to shove it all the way back to my cervix.  But it's just sticking out awkwardly; it's pretty uncomfortable.  I don't think it's just my imagination that it's slowly inching towards my knees.

Plus I can't figure out what suction is in the case of menstrual cup usage, nor whether or not I've created it.

I know the Divacup is really loooong compared to most cups (or most vaginas?) and there's a learning curve with cups in general, so do you think that's it with my problems?
