Please help, I just want to get this cup out already

Warning...it's kind of long. And gross.

I'm 21, virgin, somewhat small stature, and I'm using the meluna in medium, classic. I've tried to try all of the tricks I could find on getting it out, and nothing's worked so far. I don't know if it's some weird suction thing or I'm not doing it right or what. I had a lot of trouble getting it in, and I could never get it comfortable, although it didn't have that much trouble going further in. It only hurt a little, but apparently now it does not want to come out at all. I could get it to where it was reachable easily, but I could barely get a finger in to pinch it, much less a thumb too. So I took the internet advice and took a break.

After I calmed down, I managed to get my thumb in too after some rather painful stretching. Seriously, it hurts just touching around it now. When I tried to pull it, it would. Not. Budge.

So I took another break from the pain for a while, tried it again and the same thing happened. I tried really hard to get a finger up to the rim, thinking it might be a suction problem, but that was pretty much impossible. And also rather painful.

And now I've been alternating between trying to get this thing out of me and letting my poor vagina have a rest. I have tried so many positions, I've tried wiggling it, pulling from different angles, and when I do manage to make some progress it feels like something inside me is ripping or something. It is incredibly painful when I try to pull, and considering I have a rather high pain tolerance it's really freaking me out.

I've only had it in for about 9 hours, but I really really really want to get this out soon. PLEASE help me!
