Hello! Okay, so this is my first cycle with my small Lunette, but I'm running into a spot of trouble. I can insert the cup just fine, and I can tell it's in place when I can't feel it anymore. Running my finger around it I know it's open. The problem is, I've noticed that when I go to remove it, I can get a finger all the way up to the rim without breaking the suction. Because it's literally suctioned to my cervix, and not my vagina. I had to remove it early today since it was giving me cramping issues, assuming from the suction. Is there any way I can prevent this? Do I need a larger, or maybe smaller, cup with a wider rim perhaps? Or even try Insteads? (Although I don't like the non-reusable aspect of those) I love the advantages of a cup, and I really want to keep using it, but at this point it's difficult. I do have a fairly low cervix I guess, around 1 1/2 inches on my period. Any advice would be appreciated.

I have had the same issue. I use a large Diva (but am currently experimenting with other cups), and have found that on my lowest cervix days, the cup suctions right onto my cervix. Ouch! Try letting the cup open as soon as the rim is inside so it is making the seal to the vaginal walls, then push/kegel it up a bit if needed. I have found that making sure I have it low with a good seal makes all the difference. Good luck.

The Diva has teeny tiny anti-suction holes. Some have had good luck by enlarging them. Would that help you too?
