first try with a cup..

. It was hard to relax because I am in a hurry. This is the worst day to get my period and try the cup cause I will be traveling. It took me about an hour to insert it, but it's finally in there, and I hope it's in there correctly.I'm not sure how to tell, as I can't stick my finger up there with the cup at the same time.

Quick question though --is the stem supposed to stick out of the vagina, or is it supposed to be IN the vagina and I just don't have this thing inserted properly? If the former is the case, then the stem has GOT to go, because this is irritating, and I'm going to be sitting down all day, but I have to leave and I don't have time to mess with it, unfortunately.

My first few years using tampons I didn't know they were supposed to go all the way inside, and so I'd have parts of it sticking out, so I'm not sure if this is the case or not.

It just weird. I've used only tampons, but for some reason, it's weird to have this plastic thing inside me.
