Well here I am again!

Three years ago I bought my mooncup (didn't realise it was so long ago ahh) and had no success... I said I'd try again when I was older and no longer a virgin...

So here we are, and I've just tried inserting the cup again and I couldn't because it made me so nervous!! Aggh! Why can't I get over this??

Any tips?

Why are you nervous exactly? The cup can't hurt you. :) Even if you have to pull the remains of your hymen a little while inserting it's no big deal.

Maybe try when you are in the shower? That really helped me in the beginning for some reason.

good luck!

If you're not ready yet, then you're not ready yet. That's OK. Cups are patient. :o)

You can still work through the Virgin's Guide to Cups. Maybe you just need to understand your body a bit more. Lots of people don't realize their vagina slants backwards, for example, they just think it's straight up and down, and that makes insertion painful. http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/1243131.html

I know other members will argue that it's just a learning curve thing, but the Mooncup (either type, MCUK or KMC) is a VERY rimmy cup. Rims hurt and are harder to fold than less rimmy cups. With all the better capacity, less rimmy options out there, I'm frankly not sure what niche the Mooncup still occupies, but somebody out there still likes it. Check out menstrualcups.wordpress.com for a dizzying array of cup brands, dimensions, shapes, etc.
