Removing the Today Sponge
It sometimes takes new users a couple of times to get used to removing the sponge, but with practice, it gets easier.
"I'm a relatively new user...sometimes it is difficult to remove, but I think I'm getting the hang of it." -Devushka 12/16/10
"...removal takes practice but is not difficult (it helps to "bear down" in order to move it closer to your vaginal entrance)..." -Jello198 8/5/10
The concave dimple side of the sponge "cups" the cervix which creates a seal and sometimes a suction effect. When removing the sponge, it helps to relax your muscles and gently "bear down". The sponge also has a soft cotton loop to help with removal. It may take a moment to find the loop but if you feel around for the sponge, then you can find it and then gently pull the sponge out. Relaxing your vaginal muscles makes it easier to remove.
