Hi, I have been using a menstrual cup for several months now. I thought I had gotten the hang of proper insertion, but I have noticed for the last few periods I have had very intense, sporadic pelvic pain, not in my abdomen area but very low back, close to pubic bone. This is not a period symptom I have ever had before and when I take out my cup it relieves the symptoms. It is strongest the first few days of my period. Am I inserting it incorrectly? I have a Saalt cup in the smaller size.
