Divacup removal


As with the Insteads when I tried them, I have inserted the Divacup just to try it, and now I'm having a tough time removing it. I am bearing down and squatting but I just cannot grasp the stem enough to pull it out and I might break a nail trying, which will just make it more difficult. I think I am having difficulty because I need to break the suction. I'm trying to squeeze it and I can't quite reach the rim. When I am pulling down with the stem it's resisting because of the suction.


EDIT: I finally got it out, I had to pinch the base and pull a lot. I'm going to ask my gyno for some tips or something on that. I'm going to need practice. Thanks for your help!
