yiiiiikes

Ok so I got my first menstrual cup, the Diva Cup. And I'm having the opposite problem from most women - I can get it in super easily, but getting it out just now required over 10 minutes and a pair of needle nosed pliers!!! It opens quickly and does not leak in the slightest, but after wearing it for a while it goes way high up, and even if I get it to come back down to where I can grab the stem, the suction is still so tight it won't budge. I finally managed to get it out with jewelry pliers!

Is there a trick to this I don't realize? Because I absolutely love that I just wore this thing for 12 hours without a single leak. That is fabulous!
