The first time I had it in was during the night. I woke up about 8-9 hours after inserting it and there was a bit of leakage (I was wearing a pad). So I decided to take it out - OH MY GOD THIS HURT!!!!!!!!! not only that, but it spilled a good amount of blood as I was trying to take it out. Thankfully all of it landed on the pad and I was at home. At first I was simply trying to follow the instructions provided: bear down using muscles, rotate as you pull down. But that wasn't working very well and it was hurting a lot!!! When I took it out, there was about half a cup of blood (not including what spilled out). Could it have leaked because it was too full?
Later in the morning I tried putting it in and taking it out. The 2nd removal hurt so much, I actually cried once it came out. Now it is in, and I am not looking forward to when I have to take it out, especially since it will have fluid inside. Any ideas??
