question about clogged holes

My period is exceptionally heavy this month, I've already bled more in two days that I did collectively last month.

my question is for ladies with heavier flows: do the holes in your cup get clogged the instant you try and put the cup in? Mine have been and instead of a pop and suction I get a little bit of an air hissing sound and some squeaking and the cup doesn't make suction. I have to take it out, clean out the holes, and try again at least three times before I'm successful. has anyone else had this problem? does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm looking into getting a menstrual cup, and I think I've decided on a Keeper (especially since I found a site where they sell them for $28), but I have a question.

I'm a virgin, and honestly, they look REALLY BIG. To those who are virgins and use them, or were virgins and used them, is this a problem? I mean, I've used tampons (even x-super ones) without a problem, but these look a lot bigger than tampons.


Based on the last question, I'm asking about your actual stories about how the cups worked for you under virgin conditions.

I ask because when I'm busy hyping the Keeper et al, someone is always going to ask about using them as virgins. I have nothing to say, because I had the unfortunate condition of no tampons either. Nothing would ever fit up there, not tampons, not a finger, and surely no cup! I was so mad over that, and was delighted once the condition, er, took care of itself.

So, what can I tell these precious potential customers?
