Well after eight hours I was finally able to get my Diva Cup out. During the time I was waiting, it didn't leak so YAY it worked and it became super comfortable. Then when I went to try and get it out it was still high if not higher that it was before. I tried everything. I stood in the bathtub and pushed. Pushed my finger in the side like the hot dog bun. Nothing was working. At some point it turned and the stem wasn't pointing directly down. So pushing just made things worse and it became painful. I finally had to recruit my fiance to help get it out. I was surprised that it worked so well in such an awkward position. We didn't even spill anything when it came out. What should I do for next time? I don't want to give up on it but I also don't want my fiance to have to do this every time I use it. My fiance doesn't think I would have been able to get it out without help.
