Still experiencing painful removal

Hey everyone! I am 16, (17 in a month!) anyways, I've been using my Divacup (size 1) for about a year and I use it just about every month. What always seems to happen though is that after a few days it becomes slightly painful to remove. It actually tears a little skin on the inside of my vagina. It's not my hymen though, You know how you can kind of grab that thin layer of skin just a little inside the vagina. It's more towards your anus, rather than the clitoris. It's skin on top, but that pink kind of vaginaey flesh on the inside. (Sorry about my very specific description) It's the flesh they would cut if you were having an episiotomy, here is a cartoon picture of that flesh:

Where it says "midline episiotomy" is where it tears and it tears on the inside. It's like an extremely reduced version of the problem many women have when they have birth sometimes: that tearing on the inside of that flesh. I use lubricant, but it is still a problem. I remove it by squeezing the base and pulling it out. The cup coming out doesn't hurt that bad, it's more just having to reach and grab it. I remove it with relaxed muscles, but then it's harder to reach so I have to reach more which hurts. If I push it out with my muscles while grabbing and pulling it out it helps but it still hurts. Is this problem something I'm just going to have to deal with, or is there a solution?
