First Time! Dry run with S Ladycup - questions...

Yay!!! I finally got one!!

I have been waiting for years. (I may have forgotten all about them for awhile)

I just received my Small LOTOS Ladycup (so pretty...), boiled it, and decided to take it for a test run. It came just on time since I'm due to get my period tomorrow-ish.

I used the 'origami' fold, sort-of... I just kinda mushed it in there. I took the advice that I read to let it open before it is all the way up. 

My cervix is waaaay to the right, so I thought that might affect how the cup sealed/fit. I really didn't end up doing much, it kinda sucked itself into place and stayed there. I was worried that it wasn't sealed, but when I removed it, there was a bit of normal fluid in it and none on the outside, so that's a good sign! (I'm also understanding why people said that removing a Ladycup can be troublesome. I think I'll cut the stem off.)

I'm wondering about the weird cervix thing, even though it didn't seem to be a problem - everyone's different, right? Haha.
I was also surprised at how high it seemed to be. I couldn't even reach the rim of the cup. Is that normal even the day before your period?

I'm so happy to finally be posting about wearing my own cup!! Take that, dump truck full of tampons!
