Painful Removal (pubic bone?)

I was finally able to insert and use the cup yesterday!!! At the end of the day I tried removing it. I could easily get a finger inside to break the seal and grab the stem to slide it out. However, in the process of sliding it out I felt pain. I'm not sure if it's because it was hitting my pubic bone or something.

Am I supposed to fold it while it's inside? To prevent it from hurting? What am I doing wrong?
