More Divacup gushing and question

So, this was my second cycle with the Divacup and I am totally in love with it, however, I found that by the 4th day my vaginal canal was slightly sore. Sore enough to take the cup out and wear a tampon for the day. I usually take it out 2-3 times a day, empty and wash it. I take it out by pinching the bottom, not the stem, breaking the suction and then folding in half before poping it out.

Does that mean I need the smaller size? I went with the size 2 because I have had a child, by c-section. Like I said, it's not a painful removal, but the area is still sore, like I've had a good night's worth of sex, that would be the feeling.

Any tips? Ideas? Comments?
