have you tried a little twisting action ? Sometimes I find a slight pinch, twist and pull manouvre works a treat.

Are you bearing down? Get your fingers as far up one side/either side as you can then pinch inwards to break the suction.

Try trampolining?

Push finger a bit up the side and push in to break the seal.

you need to break the suction seal.

pinch,twist,tilt -all at the same time, then it comes out. but it does tajke a bit of fiddling unitl you get used to it

Is it out yet?

second thread like this today!

Two fingers, pinch, twist, bear down. Focus on releasing suction that's the key.

I hated this at the beginning - nearly gave up but then I got the whole pinchy twisty thing going on and now I love it.

I used mine for the first time last week. I don't like the getting it out bit but it was getting easier each time. Still a bit ewwwwww though!
Like the others have said squeeze to release the suction.

I am on my first mooncup cycle and have been having the same probs - I posted yesterday!

This morning, following the pinch and twist advice, it went like a dream. I also find that squatting right down on the floor is much easier. In no way do I feel ready to use a public toilet yet!!!!

Good luck!

Aviatrix, try removing and reinserting it in the shower. Or you could practice inserting and removing it a few times when you're not having a period until you get the hang of it, so there won't be a mess problem.

Oh god, poor you

I nearly performed a labiaectomy my first time, as I just pulled hard and it slid quite right out of me and almost completely off of me before the suction kicked in, by which time I was going too fast to stop in a hurry.

I now just squeeze hard while it is still all the way in until I can feel that the seal has broken. Then I pull it out. It isn't the most comfortable sensation in the world, but still vastly superior to arsing around with tampons IMO.

Hope you are ok today and can have another go.

If you're still stuck, pull sort of diagonally until it squelches...
