Asking fellow cup users... Have you ever found your cup has "suctioned" itself to your cervix? Took me like 20 min to get the stupid thing out this morning because it felt like it was suctioned around my cervix. I could get all the way to the top of the cup and it felt like my cervix was sitting inside the cup, but had a hard time breaking the suction.
Now I'm feeling loads of twingey feelings in my cervix - it's not pleasant! I checked the holes around the rim of the cup and none of them were blocked, so I can only assume it was suctioned directly around my cervix. Anyone had this before? Any tips or tricks to avoid it? I use a juju if that helps.
My femmycycle always stuck itself to my cervix, wasn't overly pleasant and sometimes I felt bruised but if it wasn't it leaked
I was debating buying one just recently, but was put off by the cervix suction...
Actually can anyone recommend a cup with a flatter bottom? I'm finding as my standard cup fills, it starts to drop and it sort of feels like it's falling out... Was wondering if a cup with a flat bottom would stop the pointy end falling out...
I'm a pincher. I use a juju and have to have the entire flat surface of the end of my thumb and index finger pinched together on the end of the cup. Then I kind of tilt it one way to allow some air in.
