Another post

I just posted yesterday, but I need some more help.

Day 2 using the Lunette and still having a lot of problems. I removed the entire stem, but it's not helping much. I can only seem to insert the cup while lying down. Once I finally get it inserted, I start walking around and getting sharp pains. I don't know what is causing this. I just inserted a tampon, and I'm not having any problems with it. I'm wondering if the Lunette is just too large for me. I think my issue is that I can't seem to insert it high enough, and then it's sitting too low. The stub of where the stem was is sitting outside of my vagina.

I think I'm getting more frustrated because I really want this to work for me. My mother thinks I should bring the cup to a gyno and see if she can measure and figure out if it's too large for me. She says they do that usually with diaphragms.

Do I just need more practice? I almost want to give up.
