Diva Cup Removal w/o Stem

First off, I would like to thank everyone for their informative answers to other women; I was on the verge of giving up due to leaking issues, but I took someone's advice to turn the Diva Cup inside out, and that in addition to a slight change in insertion method = NO LEAKS!!  I was stoked.  I had been trying in vain on and off for years, but now I'm a believer so long as I continue to have success.  :p

Now, onto the part I'm less stoked about: I have been unable to remove the cup inside out.  I've succeeded in breaking the seal by reaching my middle finger up and crushing the cup from the side, but I can't get both a finger and thumb around the base of the cup, and the cup is slippery and keeps evading me.  Kegels only gets the base so far down--not to my vaginal opening.  I'm not panicking yet, but it seems like the next logical step.

Any help would be appreciated!  Thank you in advance!  :D
