Just got my diva cup yesterday. The first time I removed it, it didnt hurt, but the second time I did, it was PAINFUL. I think I saw stars actually. My mum was waiting for the bathroom too, not easy to explain why your taking so long, the thought of telling her I felt like I was giving birth to an overly large diva cup crossed my mind but I decided that was something I would prefer to keep private lol but I digress. Any tips on removal without massive amounts of pain involved?
