DivaCup removal problems!

Hello all!  I am 20 years old and new to using menstrual cups and this is my first cycle using the Divacup.  The first two days have been good, I can put it in ok and leave it there for 10 hours and it doesn't leak and it doesn't ride up.  My only problem is getting it out comfortably!  I can fold it quite small with the punch down fold and get it in fine without it hurting, but when I try to take it out it hurts!!  It's like the only way I can get it out is just breaking the seal and kind of pulling the whole darn cup out, full diameter and all (not good).  I am having major trouble "folding" it while taking it out.  Is there any way to take it out so it is smaller like when you're putting it in?  Should I switch to a different cup?  It seems to be sort of tearing things up a bit down there when it has to come out (ouch!).  I don't want to stop using it because it's causing some tearing of the tissue down there (hymen wise) which I definitely dont like (ow...) I'm kind of scared to keep trying.
