Small Lunette, ParaGard IUD, good idea?

I've had my IUD for a couple months now, and recently discovered menstrual cups. I just ordered a small Lunette, despite the fact that my flow can be rather heavy some days... I've never had children, I'm 18, and I'm fairly small all around, so I figured a small would work better than a large. If I do end up having to empty it every couple of hours, it's really not that big of a deal.

I do have a couple of concerns about it, though... My strings are approximately 1" long, and I'm not sure how one is supposed to deal with strings during insertion/removal of cups? The thing will probably be here before I start bleeding this month, so I guess I'll really have to figure that out for myself, but any level of advice or guidance would be pretty great. I've also read that some women use Kegels with cups, but is that generally for removal or insertion/positioning?

Has this combination (small Lunette + ParaGard) worked well for any of you?
