The product is great! I'm using it

The product is great! I'm using it, and it feels like nothing...it's all about forgetting the hassle for a long 8-12hours, and chill. Just amazing, I'm lucky enough to have these within the reach of my hands through online shopping. I haven't seen these in my city yet, so, thanks to Amazon for this experience.
Just the packaging is very bad. And I've bought another one to gift my Aunt, she's 7months pregnant and she'll need it soon.
Okay, so you fold it (the rim) using a C-fold or a pinch-down fold, and then you insert it through your vagina...it might sound crazy and painful, but it isn't if you do this in the right way. So, relax, and sit in a squatting position, or you can make your own position ( I lie down, fold my right leg, support it on the toes in the y-axis, and fold my left leg, positioned on the x-axis, this works for me , might not work for you), and insert it, be relaxed, otherwise your vagina will tighten, it's a normal thing to insert it, so, don't worry. Also, if you are worried about your virginity, don't be, I use the medium size, and my hymen is still there. I'm 19, but if you are lesser than that, use the small one. Once inside, the cup must open, so pinch the cup base, it will open up, if it doesn't, walk around a bit, sit, or do some mild (really mild) waist exercises, it'll open for sure. you can feel if it hasn't opened, you'll feel like it hasn't been inserted properly, it will cause you some discomfort, it's an indication. Once properly inside, lie down for a bit, I do it for 2-3 mins, and lift my legs up. I do this coz for the first few minutes, I can feel the stem around my vagina opening, so it's like inserting it further. After this, you won't feel a thing...many a time I've forgotten that I'm on my periods, it's that comfortable. During my heavy flow days, the last 5-8 hours ( I fall under the really heavy-flow category, there are people who bleed less/ more than me, also you need to know that, sanitary pads makes you feel that you bleed more, so don't count upon it). And during my 4th and 5th day, I keep it in upto 24 hours...it's not advisable, but it's okay and safe, and I'm lazy. After 5-6 hours, sit in a squatting position, push down your cervical muscles( do what you do when you want your poop to come out), pinch the base, unsealing the brim by doing so, and try to fold it in a C-fold, and pull it out, empty the blood, wash the cup, put it back in, and done. Also, another thing, how to know when the cup is filled? It'll leak a bit, you will feel some liquid coming down, it first doesn't come out of the vaginal opening, it'll stay inside the vagina, but you can feel it, so go and change. And about the safety, you can ask any gynaecologist you want, they'll all say it SAFE! Gynaecologists recommend using them, as it's a natural process, and doesn't cause any infection/cuts/bad smell/disrupt your vaginal pH. Tampons bear the risk of giving toxic shocks, and pads can cut/ disrupt the pH balance( coz most of them have fragrances), and cloths are really risky, coz the bacterias can be on them, coz, you can't sanitize your cloth and use it directly, it will have to dry, when again the bacterias can come. Also, you don't have a lot of washing to do in your periods, no smelly business, and it'd be a normal active day for you. Happy periods!!
