ok, so i finally had success

With getting my diva cup (the small one) in yesterday, with over a year of failed attempts and bad experiences and was really happy about it. Now, i was kinda dumb in the fact that i trimmed the stem almost completely off pretty much when i got it. So, all is well, slight bit of discomfort at first, almost like a tampon that isn't in all the way. (Now mind you, i finally was informed by my last gyno that i have a really high cervix, so i thought the diva cup would be great.) Seeing as I've never used my cup for a cycle, i decided to go ahead and try to take it out to see how things were going... I couldn't reach it or feel it at all. So after hours of freaking out, i asked my boyfriend to help me with it when he got to my house after work. That took some wrestling around but he got it out, and while i want to become a convert, I'm afraid to try to put it in again. Maybe i put it in too far, maybe i shouldn't have trimmed the stem... I don't know. I also have a Keeper mooncup and a pink cup (which hasn't been used and still has the stem intact) but with this wrestling with the diva cup, I'm very worried i'll have worse issues with these. Any ideas? Maybe it's just not for me? :( i don't want to give up on it. Any feedback is much appreciated. Thanks!
