Stem Removal

I've trimmed the stem of my MooncupUK size B to just under the second ridge and it’s tolerable that way but I often think about removing it completely.  That thought is always immediately followed by images of an embarrassing trip to the doctor’s office… Has anyone has removed the stem on theirs completely with negative results?  How difficult removal is without it? 

I did it!! I performed a stem-ectomy on my mooncup and its soooo much better.  The drastically increased comfort is totally worth the extra fishing required to remove it sans stem.  Thanks to all the ladies who gave me advice and support!
