Dealing with the tender days?

As many of you will have also experienced, I suffer from parts of me being a little more tender than normal before and during my period. Either on or just before my heavier day(s) I can get quite tender in my whole pubic area. As I'm still getting the hang of my cup, I haven't used it on these days yet, I only experienced removal during one of these tender times so far, and it was a little more difficult to do it without 'ow!'. As I just started my period and already felt an 'ow' on day 1 of using my cup, it got me thinking, what do other cup users do that get tender in a similar way?

So, my question is, how do you deal with your tender days and cup use? Do you just bear with it and keep using the cup, or is that the day you just put the cup aside until the tenderness passes?
