My Divacup 1 is stuck. It's been in for 24 hours and I will list everything I've tried.

Hi. Topaz here. First time Diva cup user. I regret this cup so much - clearly the fit isn't right. I did so much research! Such a let down. I'm going to get a longer cup with a longer stem for my next cup. This is just silly.

So, there I was. Nearing the end of period. I am thrilled with the diva. It's easy to put in and take out (until now), convenient and environmentally responsible. So much better than tampons. I have a heavy flow - Diva said no problem. Took care of me really well. No leaks even when riding my horse and biking.

Last night I thought I heard the pop. Now I'm sure I didn't. I woke up this morning and the cup went poof just totally vanished up my vag. And I'm not a virgin so I sent in the troops.

Excavating in the bath didn't work. Bearing down didn't work. I can't even find the stem. I don't know if it's upside down or not.

The second brave soldier I sent up after my fingers was a spoon. Went up along the back wall to get it out. Squatted to shorten the canal. I felt something that was hard and plastic-feeling. Eureka! So it's up there. Waaaay up there. Somewhere in my nether regions.

I drank a vodka cooler to help loosen the pelvic floor muscles. Now (at 1:30am my poor neighbours) I'm breaking out the vibrator. I read the whole internet on this subject and figured a little muscle-loosening alcohol can't hurt.

I already did the panicking/thinking I'd have to go to the ER. Now I'm just content to let it sit and try everything you guys throw at me. Please help.

Things I've tried:
- warm bath
- drinking alcohol
- getting turned on/masturbating
- using a spoon (I felt it last night for a second)
- using a spoon again
- using a plethora of different spoons
- squatting, lying down, birth position, on my side, standing
- relaxing
- sleeping - giving my vag a break to try again this morning
- another hotter bath
- lots of lubricant
- a longer spoon
- (while drunk) tried to get my hand inside to find it. No luck and it killed like a Mofo.

Things I am going to try:
Having my bf help (poor guy)
Buying a speculum at my local kink store to see if we can locate it that way
Clitoral stimulation (again) to try and loosen up the area around it.


Thanks in advance. This community is awesome.

Cheers,

Topaz 20 year old but still clueless
