So, after MANY tries I succeeded in getting my Divacup in. I wasn't able to rotate it no matter how hard I tried, but I prodded around it with my finger and it seemed to have opened. I thought it was in far enough, but when I stood up and tested it by baring down just a tiny bit, I could feel it slip down and the stem started to poke me. I tried and tried to push it in farther, but it was difficult to do anything but push on the tip of the stem, and that just made the stem bend without moving the cup at all. Also, when I pushed really really hard, I felt a sort of pressure on my insides (not necessarily painful though.)... Has anyone else experienced this? Could that be the cup pushing up against my cervix, perhaps? If so, I must have a pretty short vaginal canal... I'm wondering, should I keep trying to push the cup in farther or should I just cut the stem?

You probably do need to trim the stem. Diva is a long cup, I have a low cervix so it always sits quite low in me. I have to have the stem totally trimmed off, I just use the grips from the base of the cup. If your cervix is low, the cup will sit low. Not much you can do, other than trim the stem really low, or use a shorter cup. :)
