Potentially The Most Bizarre Cup Story Ever

Ok, so I have a large Yuuki. After 'sexy time' with my boyfriend, I inserted the cup and went to sleep. Fast forward to early the next morning when I began dreaming that I was having severe vaginal pain, only to wake up and realize that it was real... really real! The pain was unlike anything I've ever felt before, so I knew something was wrong. I ran to the bathroom and tried to take my cup out before I realized that the cup had turned completely on it's side, making the stem unreachable. The pain was so intense I started passing out and had to call my boyfriend to help me get it out. Eventually, with his help I was able to shift the stem into a position where I could pull it out. Ohhhhh, the PAIN! This has NEVER happened to me in almost five years of cup use and I can't understand it. There isn't a whole lot of space in there as I'm a tiny girl with a low cervix and even intercourse is a challenge sometimes. How on earth did it flip on it's side and get wedged behind what I presume was my pubic bone?!? I've been afraid to put my cup in ever since. I love using cups though but I'd like to understand what happened to avoid having it happen again. I understand that our bodies expand and swell and our cervixes move to accomodate sex. My guess is that because I put the cup in right after sex, my body hadn't readjusted to it's normal state. Maybe once it did a little bit later, it moved the cup into the awkwardly painful position it ended up in. Does this make any sense? Has this happened to anyone else before?
