So two hours ago I got my period and I'm having some issues:
1) The cup sits very low in my vagina, with the stem partially sticking out, and the stem is poking into me, but I don't know if I should trim it because I don't know if I'll regret it later on. I am ok with it not being completely inside, i just wish it wouldn't poke me. :C
2) If i relax completely, it feels like the cup slides down a bit, like it's about to be pushed out of my vagina and it HURTS, but if I keep 'flexed' it keeps cup from moving and i can only feel the stem poking. This is making me believe i should have the cup higher up, but..
3) ..I can't seem to get it any higher. I read that when you push it past the pelvic bone and let it open it should slide up on it's own, but when i try this it slides down instead of up. Why would it be doing this? I have also tried to push the cup higher manually but I found that my fingers are too short to get it any higher than the pelvic bone anyways. I've also tried to push it up by the stem but it just squishes into the cup.
So far I have not had any problems with leaks C: though it's only been 3 hours and I haven't been moving around much.
Also, what does the 'teething' tag mean?
