I have an IUD so I have to be really careful not to tug on the string of the IUD when pulling it out. I have a really hard time reaching my cup sometimes, so I thought having a string sort of like a tampon that I could use to pull it low enough to break the suction would help.

Is this a bad idea? Has anyone tried it?

you could, some have used dental floss as you don't want anything absorbent that be a breeding ground for bacteria and TSS.

honestly though, you're much better off getting a longer cup. compare the body length of your cup to others here: http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ and compare your cup with stem in the photos here: http://menstrualcups.friendhood.net/f52-moderator-s-photo-library

I feel like pulling the cup down without breaking the suction first would be MORE likely to mess with IUD strings :/

Non expert opinion here!

The point of the string would be to get the cup low enough to be able to break the suction. My cup migrates too high for me to reach usually.

There must be a demand for this as MeLuna now sell cotton strings for this - probably to use with their ring cups: http://meluna.eu/baumwollkordel-1m.html
