I've had a problem twice now getting it out. The first time this happened I thought the cup (small lunette) was suctioned to my cervix, so I made the holes bigger and that seemed to help until today when I tried to get it out (from last night - it had been in for about 10.5 hours). I could feel the air coming out of the cup, so I know the problem wasn't suction, but it was STUCK. It seemed it was so tight on my cervix that it didn't want to budge. I could get a finger to the rim (by squatting on the floor), but it took several tries to get the cup off of/away from my cervix. Finally, I was able to get it into a punch-down fold and get it out, but I don't think that I should have this problem. Does anyone have any suggestions? Would a cup with a bigger/smaller rim, or a bigger/smaller cup work?
About me: I'm a virgin, but I don't have a hymen anymore (thanks, menstrual cup!). I have a fairly low cervix (had to trim the stem of my small lunette because it was poking out a bit). My flow is generally reallly heavy on about day 3, but moderate/light the rest of the time.
Additionally, when I took my cup out today, I noticed that it and what was in it smelled a bit like vinegar. I think this might be a completely different issue (about which I might need to see my doc), but it does also concern me and if anyone has any insight, I'd appreciate that as well.
I've read a good bit on the sight and I don't think I'm duplicating a post, but if I am I apologize for that.
