Hello! I posted recently about getting a cup, and I ordered one (the ladycup, hope it works out for me!) but I'm a virgin and I'm not that familiar with and haven't had too much close contact with my body down there. I realize this is an awkward question, but is there any way to prepare for cup usage before I just straight up go for it? I don't want to sit down one day and go for it one day and somehow get traumatized, is rather take it slow you know? And since I have about a month until my cup should arrive, I was just curious if there was some way to "practice" working with a cup. Did that make sense? I hope so! You guys are so helpful so I hope that I'm not making anyone uncomfortable I just need to ease myself into this!!

Have you seen this post?:
"The Virgin's Guide to Cups" http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/1243131.html#comments There's a lot of good information in there. I was not a virgin when I started using cups so I can't really give you my experience but virgin or not the number one piece of advice I have is to Relax! Good Luck!

THIS. And read up on this community about anything you may wonder about, mostly insertion & removal, leakage, etc.

In internet you can find a lot of information about cups, how insert, how remove...

It´s important to have a first contact with your body down there, you need know your body first.

when you have the cup, you can do dry runs, without your period, it helps you.

good luck! you will see that it´s very easy.

A very good site to get familiar with your Southern Anatomy and what to do with it is http://www.the-clitoris.com/ But WARNING: The photos there are VERY FRANK, up close and personal, and leave NOTHING to the imagination. So do not go there if you think you will be offended and if you do, be very careful about who might peer over your shoulder.
