When I stand up with my internal condom in, it sticks out a little. How can I stop it from doing that?

My female condom sticks out when I stand up.

Fun fact: You can insert the internal condom up to 2 hours before having sex. Not-so-fun fact: if you stand up with it in, the internal condom will hang slightly out of the vagina. The part that sticks out does serve a purpose (it helps the internal condom stay in place and helps protect you from skin-to-skin transmission of STIs). If you want to insert it early, you might want to try wearing a snug pair of underwear when out and about to hold the external part of the condom closer to your body if it bothers you.
