Can the menstrual cup get stuck or disappear inside my vagina?

The menstrual cup can't disappear inside your vagina, but it's very possible for it to move up quite high. Should this happen, please don't panic. Gravity will do its work and the cup will move down towards the base of your vagina naturally. If you struggle to remove the cup, take a deep breath and relax. Getting riled up and anxious will only cause your muscles to tense up more. Whilst on the toilet, try using your abdominal muscles to squeeze the cup down. Alternatively, try assuming a squat position. If you manage to reach the stem with your fingers, tug gently to move the cup down. When the cup is within better reach, pinch the base to break the vacuum and remove the cup.
