Hello!! I posted in here about two months ago when I was trying my Mooncup UK for my first cycle and having a horrible experience. After several experinces with trying to remove my cup and then sitting on the toilet crying for 45 minutes, I can now say I no longer have this issue! So to anyone else having trouble on your first or second cycle - relax, stick with it, it DOES get better! This was the second cycle I tried it and it took only a fraction of the time to take it out, it wasn't painful to remove and it didn't leak. No idea what I did differently, but maybe it just took time to get used to it. Regardless, I am so much happier with it now, and so glad I don't have to use tampons anymore.

One thing I do wonder though - when I'm taking it out, in order to get it low enough to grab the base, I tug on the stem quite a bit and I have this irrational fear that the stem will rip off at some point. Has anyone ever had the problem of the stem accidentally coming off? Or is this just me being worried unnecessarily?

Thanks!

My first cup was a Keeper Moon Cup (US), which is quite similar to the UK one, from what I understand. I used to have to pull on the stem a lot to get it to come out (even using my nails to grip sometimes because it was so slippery), and the stem was still fine after using it for many months. :)

I'm very glad to here that you love your cup now! :)
I can pretty much say that your stem is never going to come off, I don't think you could ever possibly pull hard enough for that to happen. Don't worry about it! :)
