New, using small diva cup

I know there are a lot of posts on removal, and I looked, but I still feel like I'm . . . missing something. First of all, I can't seem to avoid pinching a thin layer of skin as I'm trying to grab for the stem or the cup. I'm using the other hand to push skin out of the way, but this is the very thin almost membrane like skin right at the opening. Second, cannot fit two fingers in far enough to pinch the cup and break the seal, I can barely get the tips in to grab the stem. I tried just putting one finger in to try to break the seal, but that pushed the bottom and the stem so it wasn't aimed exactly at the hole any more but more to the side of it, and then when I shifted my fingers to actually grab the base and pull, it popped right back into a seal.

Also, turning the cup to create the seal, definitely could not manage 360 degrees like the instructions said! Again with the pinching of skin as I tried and tried and only managed to pinch and twist the bottom but not shift the actual cup. Otherwise it went in okay, and I guess had a seal because I had no leakage...
