First Time Use - Discomfort or Lack of Familiarity?

Hi All,

I am using the Fleurcup; large size (47/no kids). This is my first cycle using it and while I love it, I feel some very minor discomfort. This is day two and I didn't feel any discomfort yesterday. I'm also attempting to discern whether these are normal cramps or a combination of cramps and something new that I need to get used to. I do take Midol and the discomfort remains.

Like you, I'm learning as I go and I'm fairly certain that I have it in correctly, but I feel some pressure. Like it could be pressing against my cervix somehow OR maybe it is too large OR I could have it in incorrectly OR this is just how it feels.

Maybe take it out and reinsert?

Your collective experience is much appreciated!
