Hi! This is my first time using a menstrual cup. I purchased peesafe menstrual cup -extra small size(meant for beginners). The cup base has gone in properly. I’ve checked the base for any folds, as my cup wasn’t going completely in(along with the stem). The stem sticking out is causing a little pain and discomfort. I’ve read that we can trim it, but my cup has a small bulge at the end of the stem(designed for easy location and pulling). So I’m not sure if cutting that part out will cause difficulty in pulling out the cup. What should I do?
