How do I know if Silky Cup is properly positioned and opened?
Some women, although finding Silky Cup easy to insert, find that when they do so Silky Cup doesn’t open fully. This is an easy issue to resolve by simply rotating the cup by the base until it has formed a seal and opens properly.
Are menstrual cups comfortable?
Many find the cup comfortable and easy to wear. Others may find that the stem may bother them. It’s important to give it a few cycles to try and see where it sits and see what’s right for them. Silky Cup offers you the ability to trim the stem if you find that it makes you uncomfortable or aware of it. It is recommended, however, that you keep at least half the stem.
At first you may be aware of its presence, but you will get used to it. If inserted correctly, it should not cause any pain (providing you have no medical conditions.) Virgins may experience some discomfort upon initial use. Vaginas naturally expand and retract in order to have sex or give birth, so an average woman should be able to handle the cup just fine with practice. It will not affect the tightness of your vagina.
You should not be able to feel the cup whatsoever when used correctly. If you do, then it has been inserted incorrectly and too closely to the vaginal opening. Simply reinsert the cup higher.
