Can The DivaCup become stuck? If it happens, what to do
- A. It is highly unlikely that The DivaCup will become �stuck�, because the vagina is only approximately 4 or 5 inches long.
- If The DivaCup moves up and becomes harder to reach, simply push down (or bear down) with your stomach muscles (similar to having a bowel movement).
- Reach inside the vagina and pull on the stem until you can reach the base of the cup. Squeeze the base.
- Make sure that you are relaxed while doing this so that your vaginal muscles do not become tense.
- Once you have squeezed the base to release the air, pull the cup out at a sideways angle.
- This allows more air to enter the vagina, and it will then be able to be removed easily.
- If you still cannot reach The DivaCup, squat on the floor.
- This will automatically lower the cup because this position shortens the vagina.
- The important thing to remember is not to panic as this will make the vaginal muscles very tense and can cause the cup to be harder to remove.
- If the stem feels �slippery�, wait a bit,relax, and try again by bearing down on the muscles.
- This will push the cup down to the lower part of the vagina, then you will be able to pinch the base and remove.
- By following the instructions: rotating 360 degrees to make sure it has fully opened and creating the seal, and by wearing it low in the canal (not pushing it up high like a tampon).
- The cup should be very easy to remove.
Do you have to remove The DivaCup before using the bathroom.
- If inserted properly, The DivaCup will stay in place during urination or a bowel movement.
