long time diva cup user, sudden pain

I've been using diva cup for about 2 years and i've never had an issue. Suddenly today (day 2 of my cycle) I'm having a lot of pain and tenderness deep in my abdomen. When I go to remove my cup the feeling of pain around my cervix is awful. I have to break the suction first then remove( I've never needed to do this before) I'm honestly a little worried. Anyone have any ideas as to what could be going on?

Diva take 2

Interesting revelation about the “blasted” diva cup and I see many new posts about the same concerns about getting it out so maybe this will help. I started off with the diva given it is the only one you can find in stores and discovered I have a freakishly long vagina. I had such issues getting it out! Thanks to this forum I discovered cups with much longer stems. I was using the yukki and the moon for about a year or two. Then I was curious and decided to try the diva again. So interestingly enough, the year or two of practice with the longer stems prepared me for the diva! After all that time I finally learned how to really use my vaginal muscles and now have very little trouble getting out the diva! I just reach up, work my muscles and the diva comes right down. Learning how to use my muscles has benefited other aspects of my life too ;)
