The real test of the Mooncup – Tester 1 the first trial

So……yesterday the long awaited period arrived. I have very bizarrely been waiting for it this month….! Sad I know but I am a middle aged woman pretty much ๐Ÿ˜‚ so I thought – this will be a doddle….folded into my C shape, and in it went….could feel it slightly but didnโ€™t know if that was normal or what…..anyway thought as it was only the beginning of the cycle I would try a wee with it in ;as it says you can do) and pop….! i was sure 1st day blood clots werent that size so yes, sadly, moon cup was in the loo!!!!! So that was unsuccessful positioning…!! Attempt 2- after bath…..in it went but when I emptied later, looked like urine….?! What the hell??! So wrong again! Hoping it was water from the bath! ๐Ÿ˜‚
Attempt 3 – felt uncomfortable and could feel it when standing or sitting…..mmmm more difficult than I thought….!! So bath again this morn and decided as the 1 leg up on bath isnโ€™t doing it (dont fancy the squat either- too old for earth mother birthing positions) ๐Ÿ˜‚ decided I will lie down on bed on a towel. Perfect! Seems in and doing the job…! Thank god! How hard could it be?! I would have given up completely if the feeling of being completely clean down below on period week wasnt so appealing….
One down side, knowing how much to trim off stem is tricky! Had to dig to retrieve earlier….! So my advice trim a little at a time..!
