Has anyone else had this problem, and is there any way to smooth the end of the stem so it doesn't poke so much and doesn't feel as sharp? I can still reach it easily if I insert the cup inside out, but I'm afraid that doing so may reduce the capacity a bit since the bottom of the stem/cup take up a small amount of space in the cup.
Also, I am not sure if I am pushing the cup in far enough. I've been using the triangle fold, and once I get to the point where the bottom of the cup is in and I can't put both my thumb and index in with it, it tends to pop open so that I can't push it up any further with just my index finger, which may be causing some of the stem problems. I think my cervix is also pretty low (I can feel it with less than my entire index finger inside), so I'm not sure if the cup would even go any higher.
Any advice would be appreciated!
