After a fair bit of research here, on Reddit, and Precious Stars Pads on youtube, I decided to get a cup. The only one available here is the Diva cup, so I bought that one.

I have been following the Virgin's Guide to Cups for a couple weeks, and like the author of that post I never managed to get more than one finger inside my vagina, but I figured that was fine. I waited until my period started to try inserting the cup itself. However the Diva cup, even folded, seems to be wider than one finger and I'm not managing to get it even partially in. It also doesn't want to stay folded, and it kept popping open and falling on the floor when I'm trying to insert it.

I've seen people respond to other, similar posts with something along the lines of "it's not the cup, it's you - don't get a new cup." I am a virgin, and my hymen seems to be a fairly wide half moon shape, so I understand it may take me a bit longer to get used to the cups, but I'd like to at least try my best. So before I give up on cups entirely or get a new cup, what more should I be doing?

Get comfortable with the concept and act of insertion. Start with your fingers and then move on to something easily removable such as a clean hairbrush handle or whatever else appeals to you. Get familiar with the angles. Learn to clench and relax your PC muscle. And don't rush the process. Cups are patient. :o)

Edited to add: Consider enlarging the anti-suction holes around the rim while you're gathering your confidence. The ones on the Diva are notoriously small. And if you haven't already, read http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/
