Removal question

Hi,

Newbie here. I know this has probably been answered already, but I couldn't find anything really specific to my problem, so...
I just got my first cup, a small Green Donna, and did a dry run to practice. It's very comfortable to wear and I can't feel it when it's in, so I hope it'll work well.
I can reach in and grab it, but it's quite painful to get the rim out, and pretty much impossible without folding it up inside first, which I imagine will make it very messy and unmanageable when it's full of blood.
I heard the suction break, so that's not the issue. And I did my best to relax the PC muscles, but it was still very unpleasant. I've always had the same problem with Super and larger size tampons unless they're completely full, so it's probably a size issue with my body, but I can't be the only one, right?

Any tips will be much appreciated.

Oh, and I also measured the cup for the data missing from the charts here: the inside diameter is 31, and the volume up to the holes is 20-21ml.
