i browsed the archive but i didn't see anything about this... (i apologize in advance if i totally missed it)

for anyone who's used a menstrual cup after giving birth vaginally, how soon after could you use your cup?

i'll probably use cloth pads at least for the first 4 weeks while i heal, but my period returned really quickly after my first baby so i'm just wondering how soon i can use the cup.

also, did it hurt to use the cup post-pardum? and was it maybe to... ahem... loose for the cup to be effective?

and while i'm at it- i was hyping the cup to my friend and she wanted to know why it was considered safe to wear while you slept. she worried about the blood just going back inside when you lay down. i wasn't quite sure how to answer her questions convincingly enough. any suggestions? i'm campaigning to turn ALL my friends onto reusable menstrual products:)
