Nausea when inserting

Hi... I got my diva cup a few cycles ago, but only used it with the first cycle. The first time I put it in, I feel like I felt it suction into place, which made me really nauseated and I stayed feeling sick for a while. It probably has to do with the fact that the idea of it making a seal freaks me out...I don't know why.

Anyway, now when I try to put it in, I can't seem to feel it make a seal. I try to turn it 360 degrees, but I can't ever feel it move, even though I think it is, no matter how long I turn it. I feel that my vagina is just so tight around it it doesn't want to move. Ah! Furthermore, the anticipation of the sickening feeling I think I will have makes me light headed, dizzy, and nauseous. For my last cycle I used tampons because I just didn't want to deal with it. Does anyone else experience this icky feeling? Are you supposed to feel it make the seal?

I'm 24 and had to research where my cervix is and how to find it. I still don't think I've found it! Everything feels the same in there. I feel like I don't know my body at all.

Thanks :)
