Upon reading many entries on this page and researching a bit I've decided to give the Mooncup a try. I'd tried tampons once when I was 13, about seven years ago. Now that I think of it I was probably no inserting them far enough, but it never felt comfortable.
Cut to today. I'm not on my period yet, but upon buying the Mooncup I decided to give it a test run, see how it worked, if the stem needed to be trimmed, and everything before my next period started (I thought I'd be more stressed out if I tried it then). Inserting it was definitely not as difficult as I thought it would be, I'm not sure yet about how comfortable I'll be with it inside of me all day (it seems like my vagina muscles like pushing whenever there's something in there... If anyone knows anything about this "problem" as well, that'd be great), but my main worry is this: I had a hard time getting it out and had to invade quite a bit in there. At some point during the removal I felt a pain deep inside my vagina, and when I finally managed to get the cup out, there was a bit of blood on both my fingers and the cup. I'm worried I "ripped" something inside or was a bit too rough with my vagina.
Can anyone give me some advice? Thank you.
By the way, since it's my first post: hello everyone, what a nice community you've got here :)
