I'm fifteen and a virgin. A few months ago I bought a MoonCup (size B) not realising how many other options there were out there. However, after several attempts to insert, I think I might be more suited to a softer, smaller cup.

Although I can get one finger into my vagina, I find it hard to get anything else in. I tried looking in a mirror and can see a hole; if I insert my finger, I then still have to fish around before I can find the actual entrance to my vagina. After the original hole I can't see anything so I just have to rely on what I can feel, which obviously I can't do with something like a cup. Is there anything I can do about this?

I also have a bit of trouble holding the MoonCup in a position where it doesn't just flip open and bounce across the room (I've been using the punch-down fold, by the way). Although I can insert my finger without a mirror, with a foreign object I'm completely lost without one, and since I only have two hands, things get tricky. So I'm looking for something soft that I'll be able to fold not much bigger than my finger and with a much smaller rim that the MoonCup.

I've been thinking of a Lunette or a soft Yuuki, but I need something I can get easily in the UK, whether online or in a shop, without people finding out. I'd really like to have a look at all the different options in real life because it's hard to work things out from pictures, but maybe someone could shed some light onto all this?

I wouldn't order a new cup yet. Get through the learning curve with the one that you have now. Your problem isn't the cup, it's your technique and your inexperience with your own body. Once you've gotten the hang of it, then use what you know about your cup, as well as like and dislike about it to figure out whether or not you'd like something different.

In the mean time, read the good advice in the Virgins Guide to Cups (found at the Community FAQ), and the replies to posts tagged "insertion problems."

Don't buy another cup "at random" because you like the name or because reviews say it fits others. Make a wiser choice next time based on what you know, not what you hope it will be.
