I am having a really big problem inserting my small divacup. I purchased it about 3 weeks ago and tried it as soon as I got it in the mail, but I could not get it inside all the way. (I tried it for about 2 hours) I thought this was okay since I heard it's easier to insert when you are menstruating.

Flash forward to today, another 2 hours of trying to insert the the damn thing, but it just won't go in all the way!! I'm on the first day of my period btw. I tried everything. lying down, sitting down, standing, in the shower, a leg raised. I did the whole mouth open to relax the jaw, breathing in and out. But I can only get it in so far. About half an inch & the whole stem end up sticking out. When I try to push it in, it just burns so bad. It doesn't hurt so much, there's just this awful burning sensation. I turned it inside out, thinking all my problems would be solved and still a whole inch is sticking out. When I try to push it in feels like I'm putting a stick into mud, honestly. This is so frustrating.

I'm a virgin, I have only stuck a finger in there about twice before. I've wore a tampon once like 5 years ago. I decided to get over my fear and stuck my finger in there to I could feel around and figure out what the problem was and the same thing happened. I can only get my finger in to like the second joint, then it just begins to burn really badly. I don't know what this is, could it be the hymen? I thought that was usually right near the entrance. Pleeease help me. I thought I was done with pads. this is so disappointing :(
