Non-messy removal

This community has been SUCH a great help to me! I just received my DivaCup (size one) yesterday and have done two dry runs so far. I've been able to insert and check for a proper seal in under a minute, and remove it in under a minute too. For anyone who is new to their menstrual cup, take a look at the photos and information in the memories about the different folds you can use! I would not have been able to figure out the origami fold (which is my favourite by far) without those photos and step-by-step instructions. Thank you girls!

Now let's just hope I don't sloosh blood all over myself when I go to remove it on my upcoming shark week. I seem to have to smoosh the cup to remove it comfortably, and I'm wondering if there will be disasterous consequences when it is filled with blood... I've read through the memories and removal tagged entries - does anyone have any additional tips/tricks for non-messy removal? It would suck to ruin my clothes or something, especially in public or on a date.

Anyway, I can't WAIT for my period!
