So, after my first not so good experience with the (small) diva back in February, I got the courage up and  tried it again almost a month ago.  I had tried a 'dry run' with it and was able to get it in and problem, so I was pretty excited for my period! Later on that night, it came, which only ever seems to happen when I'm waiting for it.

Well, I put it in...felt the stem poking at me a little bit, (and it did that when I did the dry run too) but decided to ignore it and read up on trimming the stem. After I was done all the reading, it stopped poking. I then went to go see if I could get it out. I tried it about 3 different times that night and twice again that such luck.  I had the same experience with it the first time, so the experience of explaining the story to the people at health services was not *as* embarrassing. Turns out, once again, it was suctioned to my cervix and I cannot for the life of me remove it when it's suctioned matter how hard I try.

Has anyone had this problem before? Does this mean I have a low cervix? I really want this whole cup thing to work, but I don't think it's in my best interest to try the diva cup again. And as a poor college grad, buying several different cups is out of the question. Any suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated.

ETA: This may sound like a stupid question, but when inserting any of the cups that have stems, should the stem be outside of your body??
