Ok, I'm ready to try again.

Hi :) I was here about 2 months ago asking for advice but I doubt you remember me :) I didn't succeed in actually getting it inside of me...

Ok I did indeed Go back through the archives and FAQ and get myself familiar again with what I am supposed to be accomplishing and how I am supposed to be doing it. But I couldn't find information on this, I think I might have read something about it before, long ago, but I have not the slightest clue what search words I would use to find it, please forgive me if I'm asking you to reiterate a common mundane detail...

I have a difficult time getting the cup in, because everything seems very..."Squeezed" someone had said you need to try all kinds of positions so at one point I was mostly upside down with my bottom half in the air, and the whole thing kind of "blew up" not like a bomb, but like a balloon, suddenly "exploring" became easier, everything was very very very open, where I could BARELY get 2 fingers in before, I could suddenly get three in with room to spare, but everything felt like it had expanded to its largest point, and I noticed this wall... ummm I don't know if this Diagram will come out right, but it was horizontal in this vertical tube.... like this

And I don't know what to make of it, I honestly did look up the anatomy of this, but it didn't make a lot of sense to me. I want to know more about this wall that is horizontal, It seems to be what blocks me from being able to put my cup in when I'm more "squeezed" but it is only about 1/3rd the way across the diameter of the tube. I don't want to put my cup in when I am "open" like this because I am mostly upside down, and there is plenty of space for the cup like this, it feels like it would just fall... upwards torward my cervix... Idk... doesn't sound comfortable.  Anything that might clear up what this wall is/is for would help and whether I should be trying to insert the cup into the more squeezed position or if my body really needs to be THAT open to insert (the ability to insert three fingers with room to spare seems to be much more than what others have described...) Any information would be helpful. Thank you guys, I really appreciate your help :)
