 Ok, so yesterday I finally got my small blue LadyCup. It was WAY smaller than what I was expecting, so it releived me some. I didn't have the time or privacy to boil it, so I just intensely wiped it with rubbing alcahol with cotton balls... Do I nessecarily need to boil it? Well, I figured that what I did was ok enough, so I gave it a try at putting it in... My fingers were in the way... So I guess what I'm asking is that where and how, do I position my fingers when inserting? I tried the punch-down fold and  of course, my fingers got in the way, but I was pushing it in, until all of a sudden, my  finger lost a centimeter on the hold of the cup, and the folded part of the cup sprung out and thwacked me... Ow.. Traumatizing experience... Please help! (Oh yeah, these have been dry runs)

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.
