Removal issues

I'm new to using a cup so i'm easing into it by only using it for a few hours at a time and alternating between it and pads, so I have some questions:

1. How can I get the seal to release so removal doesn't hurt? When I remove it, even after pressing the bottom and getting my finger over the rim it feels like my Diva cup is trying to give me a hickey. lol Also getting it in sometimes hurts a bit when It pops open, is there anyway to prevent that? The only way I can get it in is the punch down fold, if that matters. (the only other fold I've tried is the c-fold and that wouldn't fit)

2. How do I find my cervix and tell whether it's low or high? I THINK I found it and that it is on the front wall of my vagina, but i'm not sure if it'd be considered low or high.

3. Also, how can I prevent leaking? I thought it was just residual at first, and it might be cause it's not alot and my cup is catching the blood, but even after wiping away all the blood and changing my liner after about half an hour or so to see if it was residual I still had some leaking, so is there a way to angle it better to help prevent leaking?

4. And lastly, is normal that I can only get the cup in and out if I get on my knees? Is it like that for anyone else? Is it cause i'm a virgin, or...?
