Hello! I am new to cups and live journal!

I just started using my femmecup last night ( I tryed some dry runs before and they went great!!) But not so great today ! I went to get up and shower then I had the "Woosh" sensation and I started leaking. I attempted to remove it in the shower but when i tried it felt like my vagina was swollen around it and had trouble finding the stem. I could barely get one finger in too break the seal. After a half hour of the attempt I had to call my ( wonderfull and understanding) fiance in to help becuase i just kept getting light headed, and a big mistake of having long finger nails i kept stabbing myself. He tried breaking the seal but couldnt because it was so swollen. I finally got it out myself by squatting over the toliet and baring down really hard. It wasnt completly full, I don't know if it was because it leaked when we were trying to get it out. Is feeling swollen common?

Im 25,I always used tampons, no children and sexually active.
I havent gotten the chance to figure out where my cervix it and some times  I have painful sex if he goes in all the way. I went to the dr about that he said I had no issues. I really love the idea of the cup. I don't want to give up. Possible a cup with a ring to help get a better grip?

Thank you!!

Since the Femmecup is on the shorter side (60mm) it sounds like you have a high cervix and could use a longer one. Mine is super high and I use the Si-Bell (74mm incl. stem), Rainbow (70mm incl. stem, on lower cervix days), and I have used the Lily (78mm I think incl stem) and Femmycycle (has a ring stem so length is less of a problem).

In fact, if you think 74mm would be OK for you, my Lily with one notch trimmed might be a good option--I would be back home to ship it out next Sunday and I would be cool with 25 shipped to the US. You can check out some pictures here: http://mc-sales.livejournal.com/209827.html
