Just testing my first ever cup the evacup.
Mostly positive was able to get it in with relative ease after trying a few folds. I found the punchdown works best for me. After this it unfolded but still felt a bit dented so gave it a small wiggle and all ok .
The issue came with removing had it in for 10 mins and all ok, but left it in for four hours this afternoon went to remove it to find it appears to have somehow sucked my cervix down and into it.
After much bearing down i managed to pinch the rim and my cervix too Owch! and break the suction (luckily my IUD is still in place was a bit concerned about the strings),bit graphic but my cervix was deffo hanging lower than usual and took a couple of minutes to retreat to it usual high up position. Just wondering what ive got wrong. I would say my cervix is medium to high I have to really scrunch over and bear down just to get my middle finger on it so dont think its a case of the cups too big. I made sure to insert the cup not too high either.

Any advice would be much appreciated

Please help! 😄

Well, inserting the cup low isn't going to help--it will naturally ALWAYS ride up until it stops, either under your cervix (if a narrow cup) or around your cervix (if a wider one). That's why we always categorize certain cups as being good for a low cervix, good for a high cervix, etc.

Enlarging the suction holes around the rim will prevent the cup from having serious suction, but if the "suction" was really that the cup diameter fit so snugly around your cervix that your cervix then blocked the holes...you will need a wider cup. The Lily did that to my cervix (it has a very narrow opening when you count the inner lip, and also no suction holes). If the dangly cervix is a consistent problem you may be interested in wider/higher capacity cups like the SuperJennie and LuvUrBody--both have been really popular with the dangly cervix set. Good luck!

The way I see it, you had an uncomfortable removal on your first time using it. You're still in the learning curve and shouldn't either give up or race out to buy another cup yet. Keep getting better at using the cup you have and then decide whether of not you'd like a different one. Or maybe you'd like a second cup for different days of your cycle. There is a variety of size charts here and elsewhere online. Using them, eliminate the cups that you don't think would fit you and then use photos of those that remain to pick the shape that you think would suit you best.
