Then I woke up this morning. When I tried to remove the cup it turns out that it ascended up my vagina (I guess my cervix really is higher at the beginning of my period than during its peak) and I could barely reach my trimmed stem. It took about thirty minutes for me to finally reach far enough to break the suction and remove it. Maybe it's because I have short arms but I just couldn't reach it without essentially contorting myself into a pretzel shape on the toilet.
Now I feel that I trimmed the stem for nothing and may have an "useless" small cup. I do have a couple of Melunas coming in the mail but I doubt they will come soon. I can insert the large Lunette just fine; I'm just worried that maybe I can't use my small Lunette anymore. Should I keep trying with my small Lunette or should I sell/donate it?
Other than this problem, my first time with cups ever has been a blast. I've never felt so comfortable and happy during my period in my life. Even my cramps are not as bad as usual. Insertion has been for the most part a snap; it's removal that's a pain.
