feeling need to pee after insertion

does anyone else have slight pain/a feeling like they need to pee when they insert the keeper?  i am using this for the first time (well my first period, but i have been using it the last few days) i was having some trouble inserting it, but after advice from friends and advice on a different way to fold - thanks to whoever posted that - it seems easier.  i am still a little concerned that this may be more than just me being new at this.  the feeling goes away somewhat after like 5 mins like a lot of you describe, but not completely.  i am definitely aware of the keeper being in me and keep flexing my muscles to move the keeper back down as it seems to ride up.

i am also concerned about trimming the stem.  my keeper tends to ride up/go into my body as i wear it more and while the stem bothers me some which is why i would want to trim it, i am afraid that i would not be able to get the keeper out as easily if i trimmed the stem b/c isn't it supposed to stay outside of your body?  and right now the keeper seems to be moving more than it should which concerns me.  it really seems like more than just me being not used to using the keeper.
