I'm giving it a go. I'm sick of pads and tampons give me terrible cramps b ever since I had my second son.

I researched and decided on the sckoon cup.

I don't quite get it...I am practicing with it as I'm about to start AF soon... I thought I had it in good, but a couple hours later I went to take it out before I went to bed, and it had shifted waaaay in there. I almost panicked lol....but yea found it got it out...

Is it supposed to move like that once it's in there??

Any tips for easier insertion? I'm kinda 'fragile' down there lol, and it kinda hurts...

Any tips/advice/info would be great!!

I have been using the Moon Cup for about 6 months now.  Not familiar with the sckoon.  But the site where I got my Moon Cup has a lot of great information, and they are responsive to questions: http://gladrags.com/

I haven't used the cup yet, but definitely looking into getting one soon. I'm curious to know this too.

Yeah, but nothing to worry about.  Your cervix is only so big.  It's not going anywhere that you won't be able to reach :)

Not at all - at least with my Moon Cup.  The blood stays in the cup.  *shrug*  No messiness when I have to reach just a little further up to grab it.  You can also just push it down with your kegal muscles to help get it down.
