PARTY TIME 就是 NOW (rocknload) wrote in menstrual_cups,

I can't get it out.

Okay, a little background. I bought the DivaCup last night, finally got it in after the third try using the origami fold. That actually didn't go wonderfully -- it popped open too soon, which put me in a great deal of pain, and my body pretty much went, "shove it in or get it out! shove it in or get it out!!" I ended up shoving it in, and then it worked great! It twisted off to the right, but it doesn't hurt or anything, it didn't leak -- awesome.

But that was last night. Today, I can't get it out. I've tried several times throughout today, and I can't get it out. I'm not freaking out yet or anything, but... it's started kind of cramping, I can't get more than one finger up there... I can't push it down with the muscles, I can't really grab the stem, and when I manage to, it just won't move.

I kind of really want it out, at this point.

Edit: I tried everyone's suggestions, to... not much success. I got into a truly strange crouching position and managed to get it out quite a bit so that I could tug on the stem, an tried to break the seal. What happened was a ton of blood came pouring out all at once, and then I still couldn't get it out. I tugged and tried to squeeze it but it just WOULD NOT BUDGE, like it's been vacuum packed there, and now the cramps are getting really bad, probably due to all the squeezing and flexing and poking... And now it's not even doing its job anymore because I broke the seal.

I was liking it a lot while it was working, but I'm starting to get really upset... DDDDX

Final edit: AND IT'S OUT. Thanks so much for all your help, guys -- without it, I don't know what I would have done. My girl bits are more shell shocked than actually hurt, so I don't know when I'll try again... But thank you, thank you, and thank you.
