i should probably mention that i'm a virgin, i'm 15 years old, and i'm NOT a tampon user, never used one. i use pads, and i really hate them. they feel hot during the even when i change them frequently, they give me a rash when i wear them for several days, and i can feel the fluid streaming out of me in little clots every once in a while to the point where i shudder.
recently i've been working on getting my cup in again after that crappy experience at my friends house. i get to the point where i get it mostly in, and i know i can get it in, but all of the sudden it makes this revolting suction noise and it feels like it's pumping air into my vagina and i want to throw up because it feels so gross! i know i sound like a drama queen but i just don't like weird feelings down there, it doesn't go in smoothly, it suctions the air and pushes on the sides of my vaginal opening and pops open too early and it hurts :(
some help please? mostly about the suction thing. thank you so much in advance! i would love to use cups instead of environmentally UNfriendly pads!
Additional info: i just had this intense inspiration to go in the bathroom and try it out as i'm on my period now, but i had incredible pain. i tried inserting like 15 times, each time i would get it about halfway in and then either chicken out, feel too much pain, feel really uncomfortable, or it would pop open too soon. then on the last try i thought i had it so i moved my fingers down and let it pop open halfway but i had released it too soon, and it popped all the way open and BURNED. just...oww. please help? ahaha i'm starting to lose hope :-/
