Using the cup before menstruations

Since I bought my small Lunette, I've only used it at home and my periods has started in the morning so inserting my cup at the right time was no problem. Now, I realise this will seem pretty stupid to ask because I could use a pantyliner and some women don't mind dry runs but I wonder when do you start putting you cup on? Right when your periods begin or before?

I'm asking this especially to people who, while still being fairly regular, do not always menstruate when expected and may end up wearing the cup during three days before it actually starts. I wonder if it has any impact on health or risks of infections.

Rules reminder

Greetings community! Since it's been a problem several times over the past few days, I'd like to ask everyone to give the community rules a once-over. I'd especially like to call your attention to our request that you not use gendered language. The reasoning behind this is in this post from scien. For reference, this includes (but is not limited to) terms like women, ladies, chicks, guys, girls, and so on (though you're welcome to use these terms in relation to yourself). Thanks!
