Is an Instead to reusable cup transition difficult?

Long-time lurker, first time poster. I'm a 25-year-old nonvirgin (but no PIV) and long-time tampon user. Last period I switched to Instead softcups because I wanted some experience getting all up in my vagina while being a bloody mess before investing in a reusable cup. Insertion was a little awkward at first, and I leaked, and removal was a bit disastrous in terms of mess, but after a day or two I'd figured things out. I love not having to time my schedule around changing tampons every three hours on my heavy days -- and I feel so much cleaner, odd as that may sound.

Anyway, though, since I'd really like to get a reusable cup sometime soon, this leads me into my question. Has anyone else here switched to a reusable cup after using Instead? If so, how steep is the learning curve?
