Removal a pain?

As I mentioned last night, I just got my Diva, and love it so far (overnight, and no leakage!) The only issue I'm having is with removal. I've had to remove it twice so far, and both times it has been difficult for me to easily release the suction without any discomfort. It makes a REALLY good seal, and if I pull down on the base, it yanks on my cervix, which doesn't feel pleasant at all. Haha.

I've been following the instructions by sticking my thumb and finger up there and squeezing the sides to release the suction, but the sucker is really on there! I'm not even sure what makes it release when it finally does, after about 5 minutes.

Any tips to make this easier when I take it out tonight?
