menstrual_cups

Hi!
I have just gotten my femmecup by mail. I live in Sweden and we don´t have any menstrual cups in stores yet, hoping for a change soon!

I have just tried dry runs so far and it has worked out pretty ok most of the times. But sometimes I can feel that the cup hasn't really popped open when I have inserted it. And when I feel with my finger around it I can actually feel my poop(!) in my bowel and it is kind of pressing against my vagina. And I find that this is what is blocking the cup to fully pop open. So now I am wondering, does this mean that the cup will leak if i insert it while i have poop in my bowel during menstruation? Or maybe it doesn't matter... Because when I push the vaginal wall away from the cup it expands but when i remove the finger and the preassure returns it caves in again.
Has anyone had this problem or do you maybe have a tip? Thanks!
