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.
