Questions from an eager potential user.

Hello there!

I'm new to the idea of a cup and I have a few questions. I've been reading here and you guys seem to know so much. At the moment I can't afford a cup, but I hope to get one very soon. I'm 22, with no children. I have (what I think, though from what I read here, you can't gauge an accurate measurement using pads and tampons) a heavy flow. My vagina gets pretty short and wider than normal during my period. (Weird how it sort of changes shape, huh?) I guess I'm wondering from that, if from you all more seasoned cup users, which cup would you recommend? 

This is pretty graphic, but it seems pretty acceptable to ask graphic questions here, so when I get one, I plan to do a dry run with it. I know some of you gals don't recommend it, and that its too dry and narrow when you aren't on your period. But I can't seem to wrap my head around the idea of trying it for the first time when I'm on my flow. Do you think it would be a good idea to perhaps...pleasure myself first? It would widen me and make me wet...and I just really don't fel comfortable with not having a dry run.

That's pretty much I all I'd like to know!

Thanks so much!
