Alignment, blood

I'm currently using my new DivaCup for the first cycle.

It seems to be *working* (it collects the blood and is reasonably comfortable) but as far as I can tell it's aligned wrong - all the instructions I've been able to find say that it should be horizontal and that I should rotate it, which isn't possible. (Even when I can get a good hold on the bottom, the top won't budge when I try to rotate it - it just twists.)

Is this something I should worry about, given that it seems to be doing what it's supposed to be doing?

I wasn't going to worry, but I got a lot of blood (regular bright, non-viscous blood, not menstrual fluid) on my hands last time I put it in. I suspect that it was probably my hymen breaking (I am a virgin, and I see other people have mentioned that here), but, combined with the alignment and twisting issues, it's causing me to worry a bit.

(I've checked through the things tagged "insertion" and not found anything about this. My apologies if it's a duplicate.)
