I really like menstrual cups, but I'm having a very difficult time removing my cup. I have a Diva Cup model 1. The problem is I can't fit more than one finger inside me, which makes it really difficult to "grip" anything. Also, I find the cup/stem very slippery while it's inside me and even when I do manage to reach it, and I can't get it out. I've been trying to push it out while grabbing it, but every time I breathe, it gets sucked back in and all my efforts are lost and I start to get frustrated and anxious. I have been able to get it out (either with lots of discomfort and anxiety and/or with the help of my girlfriend) so it's not stuck or anything, but it's just incredibly painful and anxiety-ridden to get it out. I've also thought that one issue with this could be that I need a cup with a longer stem (because I have a high cervix and short fingers, and sometimes have trouble even finding the Diva Cup stem). I was thinking about getting the Lunette cup. Would anyone recommend getting a different cup, or is there anything I can do to make the removal process of the Diva Cup easier and less stressful?
