When I took my cup on a dry run earlier in the month, I was a little worried about how far up there my cervix was, and how tiny my femmecup is, but my cervix seems to be much lower today, so no major problems getting it out. All in all, a fantastic first day. I'm not sure at what point today my period started, but I'm pretty sure 8 full hours at my current flow would be too much for this cup's capacity. I'll use a pad for backup tonight, but I might think about getting something with a larger capacity later for the first few days of my period.
Anyway, I just wanted to share a positive experience with everyone. You all have been a HUGE help to me, just by reading all the posts that were here when I arrived. Thanks SO much!
