I'm afraid I'm going to destroy my vadge

Yeah, nice to see you all too. First topic in a while and it's about a dire vagina situation.

Anyway, so I'm freaking the **** out. I'm on my period and I wanted to have sex in the near future. I bought those Instead Softcup menstrual cups that advertise being able to enjoy sex while on your period, and shoved one in. It seemed fine.

Except after reading the frequently asked questions on their website. It says you should NOT wear the menstrual cups if you have an IUD, since you could pull on the string and yank the sucker out.

... :( Is my vadge a goner? Or am I freaking out over something that rarely happens?

I don't know much about menstrual cups, but I recommend doin' the sexin' in the shower during your period.  :)

ok....  when I had my IUD pulled by the Dr.  it felt like my insides were being yanked out.  It was NOT comfortable.  I'm guessing you'll know if you are tugging on the string!

 Dido - don't freak out.  Just be cautious when removing.  Enjoy!  Yeah, the shower is a good plan...........

Maybe go ahead and wait a few days for your period to end? The penini will still be there, sweeting. ;P

This is the first thread about vaginas that I've read that made shudder in discomfort.  I mean, I've read some gross ones on CC...but this one takes the cake.

It never ceases to amaze me the amount of junk a woman can stick up there and just walk around with...like it's nothin.  Like the women that put the tampons inn and forget they are there...how in the **** can you forget they are there?  If someone shoves a mini maglight up my butt, I'm not gonna be going to bed that night, see a light on under the covers, and THEN realize, "dang...fogot I had him stuck in there."

Ccat,

You can't feel tampons when they are inserted correctly.

ETA: And they can be easily forgotten if the string gets tucked up a bit, and you're on the light end of your period (no bleed-through's).

 Well then apparently I need to take a class or something because I can ALWAYS feel them, which is why I don't use them anymore.  *shudders*

The vajayjay isn't like your arse.  It has elastic property's so when something goes in it....  well you get the point.

And once a Tampon is in there correctly, you shouldn't feel it.  How those girls forget them... that is a mystery to me.

edit: to correct spelling.

But wouldn't you most like end up with TSS?

Okay, so I did some more research and of course I was over reacting. I just have to be careful not to grab the IUD string. So much crap up there.

And no, I'm not allowing waiting to be an option. :P

Vagina =/= butt. 

I mean, think about it.  By definition, it NEEDS to be able to open up enough so that things can go in and out of it...

Any day I get to gross out ccat is a wonderful one. :D Yeah, it's pretty crowded up there, but I don't feel any of it.

A woman could also forget about an inserted tampon because there were two in there. I've put a tampon in while drunk when I already had one in. I found it the next morning though. :P

Mutt I've had an IUD for almost 10 years now. It's been great for me, especially about how regular and light my period has gotten. First off your vagina will not be ruined, but if you puncture your uterus wall you will more than likely become infertile or simply unable to carry children, you could bleed to death internally and it could damage your cervix, so really your vag is the least of the issue. 

They tell you not to do something for a reason, it's the same risk as using tampons really. The way i see it I get the benefit of not having to fuss with condoms with my B all the time so the least I can do is listen to their warnings.  It COULD happen, they tell you that so you don't sue if it does, so it won't necessarily but there is a chance. 

One of the concerns of sex on periods with an IUD is that because the lining is shedding the IUD sits lower, so he could essentially "bump" the bottom of it through the cervix if he's big enough and you're short enough, which in the same way could send the IUD out of alignment or through the uterus wall. 

Back to the cup issue. You're going to feel it if it tugs or pulls - imagine what it's doing - dragging something sharp down the wall of your uterus. So IF that happens for god sake don't keep pulling and head to the doctor ASAP. You should be checking the strings during your period anyway to make sure it doesn't shift or come out. (Granted I have barely ever been able to find mine!). 

If you reeeaaalllly can't wait I suggest the shower as has been mentioned above unless you have some real heavy bleeding (I found on my first one occasionally it would have chunks or clots and was pretty grossed and if one of those ended up on the guys...........I'd think he'd be really turned off). My ex used to just go for it on the bed after putting towels down, he really wasn't grossed by the blood but I was. So each to their own.  I'm surprised there haven't been any suggestions of taking it elsewhere if your bf is so determined. 

If pads/sex are such an issue then you should really talk to your GYN about it. They may be able to suggest something else suitable for use with your IUD. 

I'm beginning to think I'm corkscrew shaped or something.  :/

...not to mention that I've never heard of a Maglite (tm) sized tampon...

You definitely shouldn't be able to feel them... Have you tried the smaller ones? For "light days"?
