Afraid to trim stem?

This is my second month using a menstrual cup, the first month I used the Diva Cup, which actually went really well with hardly any problems.  The most difficult part was removing it, I couldn't get it to fold up at all and it would usually come out full size, ouch!

I decided to order a Mia cup and I put it in for the first time this morning.  Now I'm at work now and the stem is driving me nuts!  I'm scared to trim it though.  I'm not too worried about being able to get it out, it's not to hard to reach it and bearing down helps a lot.  I guess part of it is I just don't want to alter this brand new, expensive cup!  Has anyone else had to trim the stem on their Mia?
