Help! First time with Divacup, many questions!

Hi, I just recently purchased a Divacup, and my period was scheduled to start yesterday, but I'm only 13 so it's not regular yet. Because I have learned my lesson about not wearing tampons/pads on the day before my period starts/days when it is late, I thought I should put my divacup in so I wouldn't have a surprise attack and stain my pants. So far, my period has still not come but I have been wearing the divacup for today and yesterday. When I put it in, I had no discomfort, but taking it out, OUCH. I guess I didn't break the seal, but I did follow the directions on how to remove it and thought it was just supposed to be like that and I'd get use daily to it. But tonight, I took it out and when my finger was still in there I felt a large lump and got scared, being me, I immediately went to google thinking I was dying or something. Turns out, I'm not dying, but it was my cervix that was lower or something? And the divacup just sucked right on to it. I left it alone for about 10 minutes and went to feel for it again, and it was gone! Is it kinda like how when you do the Kylie lip challenge when your lips get big then it goes away? Again, my period didn't start yet and I read that the cervix goes low when it starts. This is about my 9th period or so, and my first time using my divacup. Is it bad that is sucks onto the cervix, or is that good because the blood will go right into it? I asked my mom, but she has never used a menstrual cup before so she didn't know what to do, so I came here. If you can help, please do!
