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?

Just to make sure: you are breaking the seal, right? If you are not, then you are just pulling on your cervix and that would explain the pain.

Or the pain could be from the whole rim coming out all at once. Solutions for that include partially refolding the cup, or removing it at an angle so the rim comes out one part at a time.

Either way, yes, it WILL get easier over time as you get more practice in.
