I've tried several cups: Diva, Lunette, Femmycycle, and currently Lena. I've had the same issue with all of them, removal is always an ordeal. I bear down and reach for the stem, barely get a hold of it with the tips of my fingernails and pull and pull (losing grip several times from my nail either bending back or just slipperyness) until it feels like the stem is stretched to the point of breaking, fiiiinally get it down low enough for me to grab the base, and painfully pop it out.
It always feels like there's way too much suction. I've read that just squeezing the base is supposed to release suction, but that's never happened. Even if I somehow manage to get a finger up to the rim, I don't feel a suction release until I completely bend the rim inside the cup itself which results in a mess.
Anyway, what am I doing wrong here? I've watched countless videos, read everything I could find, and tried several different cups. I really want to figure this out, please help me :(

Soooo I'm no expert, but it does sound like you could benefit from a longer cup that is a little softer since it sounds like you have a high cervix and might be pressure sensitive. I saw that PQN mentioned the iCare cup, and can attest that it's one of the softer and longer cups on the market. If you were to try enlarging the suction holes it could very possibly solve all of your problems. Its also VERY easy on the wallet. I got mine for sale on the Wish app and it costed me $3 (shipping and handling included!!), so you wouldn't have to worry about losing a huge investment if you tried it.
