Getting ready to order

I've been researching menstrual cups for a couple months now since I am trying to pursue a more natural lifestyle (and sick & tired of throwing money away on tampons). I will be ordering a cup within the week but I have some questions I'd like to ask experienced users. I realize that everyone is different, and different things work for different people, but I'd still like to hear what works for you. That being said, feel free to answer as many (or few) questions as you'd like, and thank you in advance :-)

1) Did you do dry runs and did it help?
2) Which fold works best for you?
3) How long did it take you to reach success (no leaks or discomfort)?
4) Have you experienced shorter periods and/or less cramping?
5) Do you ever leave your cup in for more than 12 hours?
6) Do you ever use your cup for discharge?
7) Has your cup ever shifted during exercise or vigorous activity?
8) Are there any things you can't do or avoid doing while using a cup and why?
9) Why aren't cups sold in stores like Target, Walmart, CVS, etc.?

Sorry if these questions have been asked and answered before and thanks again! I look forward to reading your answers!
