From experience in damaging my hymen before, I do a lot of sport, I tend to damage first and feel soreness until later; I’ve been thinking that it might be a good idea to put on a pad and wait for a while after I remove my cup so as to make sure I’m not sore and not continue to put stress on my vagina. Sounds like a good plan?
I’m going to be stretching myself a little before my period comes in hopes that I can avoid the soreness and use the cup throughout my period (yes, I read the virgin’s guide to cups and got the idea from there ^.^ even though I don’t really have a problem with inserting one or two fingers into my vagina). Maybe this can be a little ritual for the first few months? Stretch before the period, and a small rest to make sure there is no soreness after removal, and each month I can decrease on the ritual until I feel more comfortable and sure of myself and don’t need it anymore (if it works at all to begin with ;p)
