I have been wearing the cup for over 2 hours (on a fairly heavy flow for day 1, I totally skipped my normal spotting and dove into this one head first!!) , and I have a liner in for backup and it's totally pure white! Not even a drop on it! :) I am comfortable, don't feel anything really, I can pee fine, and I THINK it's in there pretty good and fully open and everything! :) I did have some red when I wiped, but I think that was just what was already a mess past the cup when I put it in, it wasn't much at all.
Is it possible that I totally skipped the dreaded learning curve AND picked the right cup on the first try?! :) That would make me SO incredibly happy! LOL
And long story, but I actually ended up with 2 of the exact same cup... so I REALLY hope it works out, but if for some reason I end up wanting to try something new, I have a couple friends who want to try cups, but are super skeptical and don't want to spend the money if it won't work, so I figure it can't hurt to let them try it out first! So I'm keeping that one new in the box unless I absolutely need it, until I figure things out a bit better.
