I'm back again yaaay!

Started my period today and I managed to get my mooncup in and out and I'm feeling a lot less anxious about it finally!

But like last time, I can feel the cup! It doesn't hurt, I can just feel it like a gentle pressure inside me.

I can't tell if it's because I'm not inserting it high enough or because I'm just not used to having things inside of me! (I'm 16, virgin and I've never used tampons agh!)

Any tips/advice would be appreciated! :-)

It doesn't have to mean anything. It's very likely that it's just because your body isn't used to it.
I don't think you need any tips, you seem to be doing fine. Keep on keeping on!

I do believe that I know the sort of feeling you are experiencing. Try pushing it up higher. I push mine up until the stem is totally inside and it works for me. Everybody is shaped and molded differently, so just find what works for you. Just remember, it can't be sucked up and lost so don't be afraid to experiment.

I believe I felt it slightly as well when I first started using cups. I think it's a mental thing like "wow....there's something in there....do I feel it? Yes I think I do." As someone else mentioned it is also something your body isn't used to. Just give it time. So long as it's not uncomfortable it's not hurting a thing.

It might just take some adjustment to get used to it, but it's also possible that you'd just be more comfortable with a softer cup. I'd give it another cycle or two and if it's still bothering you, you might consider a different cup.

I know the first time I used a cup I definitely felt a pressure, but then I got used to it and didn't feel it anymore. This was with a much softer cup though, so I'm sure your experience is different.
