Hi all,

I just want to say today is the first day I've tried the Diva Cup (never tried any kind of cup before now...). It is awkward... I'm not sure whether I should wear it to work tomorrow until I'm comfortable with it, though I found inserting it the second time was a lot easier than the first (it flipped open too early - ouch!!). I assume it's the kind of thing you get used to over time, but right now it's just so different and I'm still not 100% sure what I think about it.

Any advice for a newbie? Words of encouragement? I appreciate all I've read on this community in the past week (just joined) and am excited to be trying this thing out! (I'm also telling my girlfriends about it on a day-by-day basis, since I seem to have a lot of them interested in it. I don't personally know anyone who uses a cup; just heard about it online awhile back).

Thank you in advance!
