Hi I've been lurking here for a while and I decided to ordered the Diva Cup small, I'm 20 years old and a virgin. So I am having 2 problems, the first is that I can't get it to pop, I stick my finger and try and feel around it to pop it but it just doesn't want to, I have tried the 7, origami, and push down folds, the others won't even go in. Also my second problem is that twice when I got it in I got this pain in like my rectum. It wasn't really bad just weird that I felt it in my rectum. This has happened to me a couple times before when inserting tampons but I'd just stop pushing and it wouldn't bother after that, but if I don't push the cup farther the base sticks out . Anw I have tried to see if I can feel my cervix before but I can't feel anything so I don't think it's that specially since I got the cup in all the way before without any pain.
P.S.I forgot to mention I'm not on my period yet and I'm using lube since I tend to be dry and I read on here that it was recommended.
