I've been trying for the last 4 hours and I just can't take it out. I stupidly trimmed some of the stem and now I can hardly get at it. I can reach the stem just barely, but I can't grip the bottom of the cup and I don't know what to do. I've tried to read past posts but i can barely settle myself. i am freaking out and i can't stop crying and i can't take deep breathes to calm myself.
the pubic bone is in the way and bearing down helps a little but i just can't get a grip on it. there's too much blood now and it's too slippery. someone suggested a spoon in a post, but didn't go into the specifics and i am going out of it i swear. i feel like squatting down is supposed to help but i can't seem to take deep breathes in that position and it's too uncomfortable for me and I end up just freaking out all over again.
i am so scared and it is not helping. i'm living by myself away from my family and i don't know anybody in this town and i don't own a car and i am freaking out. i want this thing out of me. i know this is common and i need to calm down but I really need some reassurance that this thing isn't going be stuck here all weekend and that I'll need to go to the doctors because I can't do that.
is it possible it can come out with exercise or a yoga position or even a bm I am seriously at the end of my tether here, even the idea of relaxing in a warm bath to help is making me feel claustrophobic.
eta - I was finally able to get it out! I had just about given up and was looking at the number for my university's health center (I even tried a spoon!), but then I decided to go take a shower and give it one last chance and after some squatting and A LOT of bearing down I was able to get it out.
