Unfortunately, I'm still having some problems. I'm 20, virgin, using a small lunette cup. The learning curve has been tough on me. I never used tampons or anything, and my vagina was not used to having anything up there. Two cycles ago, I couldn't get the thing in at all, there was some bleeding, I'm guessing my hymen broke. Next cycle I got it in, woo! I wore it for about two days, but it was pretty uncomfortable, to the point when I switched back to pads for the rest of the cycle. I just got my period again yesterday and tried with the cup again, but the same problems are happening, so I decided to come here, because I must be doing something wrong.
First of all, my cervix is really low, so I know I have to get it sort of inside the cup, but I'm not sure if that's happening. I use the punch down folding method, and I do have trouble opening it sometimes, but I think it does open and seal sometimes, too. It does leak, though. Not tons, but enough that I know something isn't working.
Here's my main problem: I can always feel it. I know you're not supposed to be able to tell it's there, really, if you've got it in correctly, but I am always very aware of its presence. Sometimes I feel like it's going to fall out, or a lot of times it feels like I need to pee when I don't. I can especially feel it when I sit down, and it just feel super awkward and uncomfortable.
I would love to keep this cup and not have to buy another, but this is really getting to me. I don't want to keep using pads, but they're so much easier! Any help for where my positioning might be going wrong?
