Menstrual cup virgin

I'm 33 with one child (22 months) and have just bought my first menstrual cup. I'm based in the UK so have the MCUK (size A, based on being over 30 with a child).

My period is  due in 6 days. I'm excited and a bit nervous about my forthcoming new menstrual experience.

Is there anything I should really know beforehand? Any golden rules?

I'm not planning on doing a dry run. Just going to wait till the day.

I'm a bit confused as to how high it should sit. One of my pet hates is being able to feel a tampon inside me, if I haven't inserted it high enough. From what I've read, it seems that this is a problem for many people. I'm not very familiar with my cervix.

The  instructions say low, but everyone else seems to say high. How the hell do I know if it's in the right place?!


Thanks in advance x
