I'm a 19 year old virgin who recently purchased a Diva Cup model 1. Putting it in is a breeze (using coconut oil as a lube that is), but removing it is a totally different story. This morning for example, I got up, went to the toilet, and tried to pull it out. I can push the stem down but I have trouble gripping the actual cup, and once I do get a good grip on it, it seriously hurts like hell getting it all the way out. I also cant get a finger more than half way up the cup to push it down when it's inside of me. I don't want to stop using it because it works wonders for me when it's in, is there a way to make the removal process easer without having to physically stretch myself with my fingers, because I'm not comfortable with that, or will it just get easier over time? Any thoughts?

Some say making a C-fold before taking it out helps, others do "a hotdog in a bun method" collapsing it with index finger (aka hotdog) while easing it out with your thumb, tho ive never quite got to grips with that.. With the mooncup uk it happened the same to me, i usually use my sckoon which is such a joy to whip out, but i ended up having to punch the rim down to get it out painlessly, like a punchdown fold while its in you, tho it could be messier than normal. It does get easier in time
