EDIT: I threw the cup in a mug of water and put it in the microwave. Is that kind of simulating the effects of boiling? Thanks.
EDIT2: OH. MY. GOD. That had to be one of the most painful experiences of my life. I think that I RIPPED my hymen apart... It had already had one small hole... But this was UNBEARABLE. I pulled and pulled. I beared and beared. I sweated and sweated. I cried and cried. I kept squeezing the bottom of the cup and I think the suction DID break, but the hole in my hymen was SO small. I finally just shoved a finger in and it ripped... WORST. FEELING. EVER. I used the triangle fold... It opened amazingly, and I tried to take it out. (When not on my period, my cervix must JUMP up... it goes from 1 1/2 inches in, to FIVE 1/2 inches in.. So I didn't want to do that... I am SO FREAKING SORE. Do you think it will be less painful now that that dreaded hymen was ripped? I hope so... Now I think that if I give birth ever, I WANT MEDS.
