Two things, I've been randomly bleeding for approx 4 weeks now. And how do you know when a mooncup is in the right position?

1. I'm on the pill (the 21 day with a 7 day break pill), I always know when I will have a 'period', it's on the 7 day break. But a few weeks ago I randomly started bleeding while in the middle of the pill packet. We're now coming up to 4 weeks with no let up confused

2. I got fed up with the constant bleeding and having to buy endless tampons so I went out today and bought a mooncup. I think it's in but I can feel it's there, not sure if it's in properly. How do you know when it is in position properly?

Oh I forgot, has anyone any ideas why the random bleeding is happening? I had a smear earlier this year which was clear. It's a real pain to get in at my GP surgery and I just know that if I make an appointment (for in 3 weeks time hmm ) the bleeding will more than likely have stopped...

You shouldn't be able to feel the mooncup once it's in. Remember that it sits a lot lower than a tampon, and you can trim the stem if it's bothering you. I give mine a wee twist at the bottom after insertion to make sure it's unfurled.
