- Wedding: August 2014
I’m not a doctor so obviously this might not be the same for everyone but I tried a softcup and while the insertion and time it was inside was great and way better than a tampon – I had a pretty bad experience getting it out.
PS: google softcup if you aren’t familiar
Too Much Information ahead:
I spent two hours trying to remove the softcup – on the toilet like they say, in the shower, squatting, bearing down, laying down and I even asked poor Fiance to use a condom as a glove and help (and he is not cool with sex during my period etc so it was a lot to ask) but while I could feel it, and even hook my finger on it, I could not get it out!
I finally gave up and went to urgent care and had to pay $150 to get it out because my deductible hadn’t been met. Not what I needed 1.5 months before the wedding but I had to get it out (and I am studying for the bar exam so I can’t lose a whole day stressing overit!)
Anyways the doc had never seen/used/dealt with it before and she used a speculum to see inside but said she couldn’t see it . That made me freak out
Too Much Information: I literally had to have her stick a finger in me while I sat on the edge of the examining table, use a lot of strenth and her fingernail to get it out. I don’t know if it was succtioned to my cervix or just practically vertical because i have a tilted uterus/tilted cervix.
I wish I knew it may not be suitable for women with this condition! While it was great initially – it is not for me!
has this happened to any other bees?
also, I was going to ask my gyno for a diaphragm as a nonhormonal nonIUD birth control option since after years of sex with a condom, I wanted to have sex with my husband without one! But I’m afraid now that it won’t be in the cards.
Do diaphragms work with a tilted uterus?
Just figured others could benefit from my experience and I could get advice.
