I am having difficulty getting the insertion technique perfected, is it normal to have problems first using a menstrual cup?
Yes. It is perfectly common and very normal for a new menstrual cup user to experience a few issues with inserting the cup for the initial uses. This is the menstrual cup learning curve that is often noted in menstrual cup reviews and among the most asked questions on menstrual cup products. It is important that you understand that this is a brief kickback of menstrual cup use that is remedied with patience, trial and error, and practice.
