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?

I had the same problem with the Lunette, then switched to the Sckoon and removal got to be pain free. Now, having used cups for awhile I don't have a problem removing the Lunette any more (I keep it in my purse as my emergency back-up). I think it was just nerves and tensing up a little at first that was causing the problem and since the Sckoon in softer with a less prominent rim it was easier to pull out.
