Odd removal method?

Hey ladies.  I bought my diva cup a few months ago, had horrible problems removing it (turns out I forgot to break the seal.....OUCH), and went back to tampons for a while.  This was the first month I had almost no problems with it, save for one day when it wouldn't come out.  I can't seem to get a grip on it when I try to remove it by pulling on the stem or the base.  I guess I'm wet enough that my fingers always slide off of it.  Anyway, the method I've found that works for me is to use my middle finger and press the ribbed base against the back wall of my vagina.  Once I get the base passed the circle of muscles, I can use two fingers to pull it out.  I'm afraid that I'm going to irritate myself doing this. 
Does anyone else do this?
