Bleeding on dry run

I just got my Diva Cup in the mail the other day and I decided to do a dry run just to see how it worked. The first time I did it, it went in fine, but I'm not sure if it suctioned, and popped out fine. The second time however when I went to take it out, I had a bit of difficulty getting it out. I was able to grasp it and get it down pretty far, but it wasn't detaching. I messed around with it for a while and finally felt it pop off, but, when I removed it, it had blood on it. I kept bleeding for a while, but it seems to have stopped. Nothing really hurts bad except I'm a bit sore. I think I probably just scratched myself with my fingernails near my vaginal opening, but I get a bit panicky about things going wrong down there. Is there any way I could have damaged anything by pulling too hard before the suction released? I'm sorry if this seems obvious, but I get really anxious about hurting myself down there. (I am a virgin, but I doubt that is the problem. Insertion wasn't painful and I have honestly put bigger things in while masturbating.)
