Leaving a full cup in for... a while. And peeing devices.

I know, I know... I keep coming back and spamming the community. Sorry!
In a couple of weeks I'll be going on my D of E practice expedition. And I'm due on my period for those days. Eep.
What I'm hoping to do is wear my cup because I want at least SOME leak free time. However, we're on a tight schedule. I will be camping for 2 nights and when I wake up in the morning, I'm always quite 'tense' down there which makes removal a very long process if I want to do it comfortably. (20 minutes or so? I can do it in about 5 if I'm lucky, but I doubt it'll be like that first thing in the morning) So I may have to skip removal and leave a full cup in for a day, or possibly two. What I've always been told is that cups are safe because the blood comes out of contact with your body once it's in the cup, but that wouldn't be the case here, surely?

Another thing. We're not allowed too close to a town, road, or anything like that. So I doubt I'll see a toilet. I'm thinking about investing in one of those standing-lady-pee-things. (eg, GoGirl, Shewee) However, if you're standing up with a cup in and try to pee, will your cup affect that? I know that the vajayjay is a different hole but I'm just wondering if it could affect anything.

Sorry for writing so much. You're now fully up to date with everything going on in my head. :P
