I tried to take it out (straight away so it hadn't filled up) and I could get a finger up enough to just break the seal and grab the base and stem and I pulled gently and it really hurt so I tried tilting it to get one edge out first but that hurt even more. I was panicking but trying to relax my muscles and ending up pulling it straight out somehow but it hurt loads. I tried again and the same happened except there were a couple more failed attempts at just yanking that were really painful and didn't move it. Got it out somehow but was still a bit sore after.
The rim of the mooncup is quite thick and just seems too big to come out (but makes a good seal and pops open really easily). I find it hard to get a finger alongside the cup when it's inside, I can't quite fit two fingers when relaxed either. Also I don't know if I may still have a hymen, some posts say the cup can snag on it. How can I tell if it's still there and can I break or stretch it ?(it's not of any significance to me).
I'm kind of a bit too scared to try again because not being able to get it out freaked me out a bit. Are there any brands of cup (available in UK) that are maybe a bit softer and easier to fold while inside to take out easier that aren't too expensive? Sorry this is pretty long I just really want to be able to make it work for me it would be so much simpler. Also, putting it in it made me sort of need to pee, is that normal?
