Why do i get Severe cramping when using my menstrual cup
Hello, I recently got a Lynette size 1 menstrual cup. I tried putting it in for a dry run and getting it open so that I wouldn’t feel nervous about my first period with it (new user here). Well it went in and I got it open no problem! So I was actually excited about my period. When my period started I did the 7 fold and inserted it and made sure it was opened completely up. I went about my day n had cramps. So I went back into the bathroom, repositioned and continued my day. When I took the cup out there was blood in the cup so I know I had a seal. The cramps just got progressively worse to the point where I was actually puking. So I took the cup out n my cramping slowly started to go away. This time there was also a fair amount of blood in there so I did create that seal again. Did I just not insert it correctly or maybe it’s too small around my cervix or something? My cervix is average to maybe a little higher, I can reach it with my pointer finger to the knuckle. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I am a new user, month 2, I gave a ruby cup and think my cramp us cup related. I gave 2 young children, not sure if it’s my pelvic muscles are weak or what, but I am using Tampa for a break. Help!!!
Besides the cramping, are you experiencing any other issues with the Ruby Cup?
Do you feel like you have to urinate more frequently or feel like you don’t empty your bladder all the way when you do? Do you have a slow urine stream or experience constipation while using your cup?
If you experience any of these, you might want to try a softer cup.
Do you have the Ruby Cup small or medium? I might be able to give you some suggestions based on size if you like the shape and length of this cup.
