I am having problems removing the menstrual cup, what if it is stuck?

If in the case the cup is located higher in your vagina and you cannot reach the stem to grab it and pull it out, you should breathe and not panic. Take deep breaths and relax and this will help your vaginal muscles relax at an unclenched point so you can easily remove it.

You can try a few steps to get it to a lower point in your vaginal canal. Push down with your vaginal muscles and usually gravity will help the situation. If you are sitting, stand up and push down. You can also prop your leg up so you can reach into your vagina to get a grip on the stem. Once this is resolved, you may want to consider a menstrual cup with a longer stem or just practice more so that you are confident knowing that the menstrual cup will not get stuck!
