TTC with soft cups- please help!

So my DH and I are currently TTC, and we figured we’d give soft cups a try.
For those who have used them when TTC, I have some questions, and I can’t find the answers anywhere online!

I’m petite (4’-11”). When I place the soft cup in, it doesn’t appear to open up much when inside of me (maybe about an inch?). I can feel the rim with my finger and all, and when I feel along the rim, it just doesn’t feel much open. The questions that I have are: how much do they open up for you when they’re inside of you? Is it normal for them to maybe open up around an inch from one end to another?

My second question is: when I place my finger inside of me to feel the plastic portion of the soft cup, it feels like it’s right up against something squishy. Is this normal?

I just really want to try these, and I want to make sure that I have it in properly.

One other thing. Someone mentioned that I should be able to “spin it around” inside of me... I can barely get one finger in there, let alone two to see if I can spin it. Are you able to spin it?!

Please and thank you!

I need to also mention that I followed the directions. I push it as far back and down as possible, and it tucks behind my tailbone.

Can you feel it when it’s in place and/or does it leak? If no, then you’ve got in the right place!! Everyone’s anatomy is different. I’m also pretty petite and mine doesn’t open up to a full on circle either. I have never heard of being able to spin it and I don’t think I would try that. It sounds like it could irritate things. Good luck!!

Thank you so much! The answer is no to both. I can feel it with my fingers, but I can’t feel it any other way.
I don’t think it leaks, but I do notice sperm/semen on both sides of the cup when I remove it.
