I think my period is going to arrive in the next 3 or 4 days & am a bit nervous about the femmecup... I was just wondering if anyone tried theirs before they actually had their period - like a 'practise' of sorts? Is there any reason I SHOULDN'T give it a go beforehand?

I think that's a good idea! It is easier to work on adjusting the fit without the mess. It will give you a good idea of what is to come. It may just be me, but I find it easier to insert and get a good fit when the cup is dry. After I take it out and rinse it, I dry it off before re-inserting. But you will find what works for you!
