Does this happen to anyone else?

Hi,

A couple of times this has happened and it’s seems to be getting worse.

I put a tampon in and it feels like something popped this time I actually screamed out in pain it goes away as quickly as it started but it really hurts at the time.

Any ideas what it could be?!

Thanks

HiI haven’t a clue, but I’d probably ask GP to check it out, or nurse, they can be pretty good at times. Pain definitely isn’t a good thing.

Morning sweet,

Do you have a tilted cervix? Mine gets in the way of tampons and actually the physical contact is sooo painful!

I recently switched to using a Ruby Cup - it's one of the best period related moves I've made - it's even reduced some of the deep cramping I got with tampons. I previously tried the Intima Lily Cup, but had a horrendous experience where it suctioned onto my cervix, caused an indented ring around it & was hard to remove. I almost passed out. I would never recommend it!

I do highly recommend the Ruby Cup, which I found by accident. Message me if you want any more info.

Lots of love xx

A midwife mentioned to me before I've got an anterior cervix does that mean tilted. I haven't been able to use tampons for a good 10 years x

Mine certainly does - really leans backwards - it makes me feel like I need to empty my bowels when I really don't 🤦🏻‍♀️ If I didn't know better I would think I was constipated! xx

Ohhh gosh sounds uncomfortable. Do you think its adhesions causing it to tilt so much? Xx

Possibly... I just know it's worse during ovulation when the cervix extends 🤢I'm still waiting for my diagnostic laparoscopy, so anything could be going on in there. Xx
