First time user of any menstrual cup. Insertion I have been able to master. Removal is painful! I am 41 years old and have 1 child. I am a lesbian and my wife and I do not use dildos or wide vibrators. I only share this because of the pain! I have been able to listen for the suction release (learned the hard way!). The pain come after the suction release and actual removal of the cup. I don't care about getting my blood on my hands. I only want it to not be painful when I take the cup completely out. I don't know how to tip it or fold it when it's inside. I have watched videos but the videos are not the proper way the hands/wrists would be when maneuvering down there. I'm using the diva cup size 2. Any advice is welcome!

I think it's a combination of factors. One is that the anti-suction holes on the Diva are notoriously small. Enlarge them. The other is that you're still in the learning curve and that you haven't established a good removal technique yet. That also includes accidentally clenching your PC muscle. Practice relaxing it for removal. If you haven't already, skim/read http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/ and hang in there. :o)

Thank you!

Would enlarging the holes make it easier for air to get in there? Or is there another benefit to making the holes bigger?

Yes, larger holes make it easier for air to get in or out. Especially for popping open and for removal.

Thank you for the explanation.
