I love my Diva Cup!

I just had my first cycle with my Diva Cup and it was AMAZING! I've never enjoyed a period that much! I couldn't get over how clean I felt. At times I forgot that I was even having my period. I got my period while I was at my cabin in the middle of a remote area, and it was wonderful not having to worry about discreetly disposing of pads 3-4 times a day. I could go swimming without having to make an excuse! And I didn't have one leak. Is this just beginner's luck?

I was surprised at how light my period was. And, this may be TMI, but the blood wasn't how I expected it to be. It was kind of...sticky, if that makes sense. Also, amazingly, my period only lasted for 3 days, where usually it lasts for 5-6. AMAZING, I TELL YA.

So, enough of me gushing over my cup. I do have two questions.

1.) I find that it sits a bit low. I cut the entire stem off, and I have the smaller cup. I think my vagina is just small. It doesn't bother me too much, but it gets so low that I can feel it sometimes. Do I need a different cup? I don't plan on getting a new one right now, but for future reference.

2.) I was wondering what the best way to clean it is after a cycle. I don't really want to go out and buy any special soaps, and I've read that boiling it doesn't achieve much. If anyone can share a simple way to clean it I'd be extremely grateful.
Thanks in advance!
