Really bad first experience with diva cup

So I just emptied out my diva cup for the first time in this cycle and I'm so upset.

When I inserted it this morning around 11ish, it was at the bottom of my vagina like instructed in the pamphlet. I could feel the stem and made sure of this.

I went to go remove it just now and it wasn't there. I couldn't reach it because my cervix is so high but I finally managed and my hand was covered in blood when I finally managed to take it out. It took several tries to complete this. Then I tried to put it back in and it fell to the bottom of the toliet and I had to put my whole hand in there to get it out.

I'm sitting on my bed typing this from my phone crying right now because I have OCD and no matter how many times I wash my hands I can't get the feeling off. This was a huge trigger and I can't go through my whole period like this. There's no way this is the normal experience with diva cups.

I'm asking you all this:
1. How did it get that far in? I was laying down on my bed today reading, but wouldn't that happen if I were sleeping too?
2. How can I prevent this from happening again? I want to keep using the diva cup, but not if it results in this every time.

My cervix is very high up, and I only managed to locate it a few weeks ago while squatting in the shower and practically sticking my whole hand in there. I have one of the longest menstrual cups, I don't understand how this happened.
