So like many of the other posters here, I've had some issues with removal of my DivaCup. I tried it before, it hurt trying to get it out, I gave up and haven't tried since. However, I really would like to use it to reduce the amount of waste that comes from pads and tampons.

The DivaCup website says to "pinch the base of the cup to release the seal and continue to pull down to remove". The word "pinch", to me, sounds like it's saying to put a thumb and forefinger in your vagina, but, uh, I can't do that! That's part of the part that hurts; putting fingers in there to try to fold it to get it out.

What do I do? I think I don't totally understand what to do. Is this easier than it seems and I'm missing it?
