I'm working with a small Nez Bling cup—I'm tired of dealing with pads, and this is my first venture away from them. My period started yesterday, so I decided to try and use this thing for the first time today...but I could not get it inside my vagina after 45 minutes of trying. At one point I did manage to insert the very tip, but any pressure after that was painful.

I'm a virgin, but it's not a hymen issue—I can currently insert two fingers pretty much all the way in without too much trouble or anything more than slight discomfort, so I'm pretty sure that's out of the way already.

I've tried every type of fold I could find, getting the cup wet before inserting it, and masturbating to relax my muscles before trying to insert the cup.

I haven't used lube because I don't have and can't afford any at the moment, and I can only insert sitting down or standing up because I have a roommate and have to use the bathroom stalls.

Is there advice for this? I have no idea where to go from here, and the wasted money and general letdown are both really disappointing.

Precious stars pads via YouTube is the link didn't work. An absolute wealth of info.

I second this. Bree knows a lot and she as made many videos about different problems/issues.

Thanks for the resource! I'll definitely check this out so I can try again next time.

Was it painful like tissue stretching painful or some other kind of pain?
I usually insert my cup squatting in the shower.
Do you try to push it exactly in the direction your vagina goes?

I've never had anything bigger than two fingers inside, so I don't know if I have a reference as to what "tissue stretching" pain feels like. It just hurt, and there was a burning sensation. I did try it at a multitude of different angles, since it's difficult for me to tell which direction I should be going when I can't feel what I'm pushing in.
