I'm not actually all that worried yet, but thought I'd jump in and document it in the name of research, plus it's pretty funny.

It's the 5th day of my period so my flow is light & it's been in there for 12 hours at this point. It's only my second time wearing it overnight (omg, so good,) so there's likely hardly anything in it besides my low, dangly cervix. It's a small Si-bell if that helps. I can reach the rim fine but I can't for the life of me exert enough force on it to break the seal & push my cervix out of the cup. I can actually feel it through the bell of the cup whilst I'm trying but when I push on the rim the little devil just slides up away from me so I'm pushing on the bell of the cup below my cervix, which is no help.

I just need to be able to crook my finger hard enough to push that rim beyond my lump of a cervix, but when I try that my ring finger starts to slide up my asshole, aha. Try to touch the heel of your thumb with your middle finger. See what I mean? I mean, I could do that, but I'd rather not tear up my anus needlessly. Try anal, they said, it'll be fun, they s- ANYWAY...

I'm going to leave it until shower time tonight (which would make it 24 hours,) which is funny because before I got up I was actually thinking about leaving it for 24 hours & did a search on my phone and apparently a lot of you ladies do that but I said, 'No, take it out and see how much you actually bleed overnight at the end of your period, if at all.' And then I tried to take it out and it was like, 'I'm right actually, I think I'll stay for a bit.'

Hopefully by shower time it'll be a little fuller and more inclined to let go and it'll also be easier to manage various bodily fluids in regards to that butthole issue. o_O But anyway, if anyone has some tips for when that time comes let me know & I'll update afterwards.

It might dislodge when u poop so try again after that :) also if you push on the side and twist/rotate it, it might get enough air in to come unstuck. See if you can incline it to one side enough to pop off.

I got it out, lol. I guess I just needed to let it fill a little, it seemed to mostly be fresh stuff.

I've heard some people are a little swollen in the mornings too, something to do with water retention from lying down I guess. That might have been it also because I got it out first try 6 hours later.

Kudos to you for not panicking. :) Good you got it out!

Ha! I like your writing style :p
I had this issue with my Lily since my cervix dangled a little and fit JUST inside the rim. I switched to large (read: wider diameter) cups to deal with capacity issues and never had the stuck cervix issue again. That might work for you even if your flow isn't necessarily heavy enough for a large cup. I'm young, fit-ish and childless, so that doesn't really have any bearing on what size cup you get.
