First use, removal difficulty

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! 😄
