Diva Cup First Impressions

15 years old,
Virgin,
Size 1,
heavy flow,
used the triangular fold method.
I've been researching menstrual cups for about three to four years now, my step-sister even encouraged me to get one in 2013 while I was talking to her about my problematic period. (1/17/16) I went to Rite Aid with my mom to get a few things when my period app (clue) had notified me that my period was soon and I figured that since there was a Whole Foods right next door, I might as well get a DivaCup. As soon as I got home from Whole Foods I went into the bathroom to try and get the cup in, I tried a couple of times before I decided to give it a rest until the next day as not to overwhelm myself.
I managed to get the cup in the next day (1/18/16), this time I used the triangular fold method and used a little bit of coconut oil as a lube on the rim -this helped immensely. Once it was in I couldn't feel a thing, it took absolutely no getting used to unlike tampons. I left it in for half an hour before deciding to try and take it out, which was slightly stressful. I initially panicked because I didn't see the stem right away, so I think that set me off, I was finally able to get it out by doing a few Kegel exercises and wiggling the stem at the same time. It collected a fair amount of discharge and I didn't notice any discharge on my undies, so yay! There was a microscopic amount of blood around the rim of it, but I'm assuming it's because it stretched my hymen a bit. I'm excited to see how it works when I'm actually on my period! :)
