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 love the idea of using a menstrual cup but my menstrual cup gives me cramps! I live in india and my first cup was Sirona and it was quite a soft cup and since I have strong pelvic muscles, it leaked a lot. So this times I bought a firmer cup that is SAFECUP and I feel it’s too firm. It leaks too even though the suction is always maintained and I feel like it’s pressing on my bladder too much. It gives me so many cramps and once I take it out, no cramps. I am a virgin and sirona was a smaller cup but this SAFECUP is larger and I feel it’s a little more difficult to use. Please help! And I feel my cervix is kinda on the side rather than above…I am not sure but please please help me
