Fleurcup & Fourchette Tearing

The good news: Apparently, my large Fleurcup forms such a solid seal inside me that I can fill it up well past the rim before it starts leaking. (I base this on the fact that I can remove a cup that's basically full to the rim, then watch and listen as the menstrual fluid continues to pour out of me.) This means that with the cup alone, I can now go for slightly over an hour between bathroom trips.

The bad news: Insertion and removal with this cup is causing my posterior fourchette to tear. I think, actually, that most of the insertion teething troubles have been solved with lube and a different folding method. (I'd been using the origami fold, but I think, for the way I hold it, a C-fold keeps more of the cup more tightly folded.)

Unfortunately, I've not yet found a way to remove the cup that doesn't exacerbate the tear. I've tried a standard 2-finger "pinch and pull" removal as well as hooking a single finger over the rim of the cup and wiggling it down that way. But I can't seem to find a way to squish the cup small enough to remove it without tearing. Ideas?
