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?

Since you can barely reach the base of your Diva, don't buy a different cup because nearly every popular brand would be significantly shorter. Once you get it out, enlarge the tiny anti-suction holes around the rim. They help with popping open and also with removal. The idea is to get air into/above the cup and work it down so that it doesn't create suction and get pulled back up. Keep your jaw slack and don't forget to breathe. Most importantly, TAKE YOUR TIME! The more you try to rush it, the longer it will take.

It seemed to me that the OP's problem wasn't suction, but the large and somewhat stiff rim. But yeah, whenever anyone mentions an issue with their Diva, my first thought is always those nonexistent suction holes. You think teh company could have figured that out by now?
