This is my first cycle using a cup. I'm using the She Cup and while it's been working fine, no leaks, I'm having trouble removing it.
When i try to pinch the cup, the seal breaks only after a lot of trying. Sometimes it does break, but re-forms before i can get the cup out enough, so i get a gush of blood all over my fingers and all over the bathroom floor :( My cup has a ball stem, but it sits very low so it's not hard to reach. I'm also a virgin so I'm pretty tight in there. The last time I removed the cup, I sort of pinched the base and pulled a little, and then held on to that bit tight while I somehow inserted another finger inside and pressed the cup to break the seal. Then I pulled the semi-folded cup out. I got a gush of blood and the cup popped suddenly and fell down on the floor and...well , it was quite messy. I'm not squeamish about blood, just worried about how I'll empty the cup when I go back to school( I live in a dorm there with common loos in every floor. Right now I'm at my parents' for the holidays.) Any tips/help would be really appreciated! :)
