First-timer would love advice

So. I'm a first time user. I tried out my new small Divacup, had slight pain on insertion but that was normal. It felt a bit odd, but was fine for an hour or so. Then I had very intense pain/pressure. It was awful. I have not yet cut the stem, since it doesn't actually protrude...
Anyone have any advice? I went back to tampons for the rest of my cycle, which was too bad because the whole reason I spent $45 was to avoid them...
