Diva cup help!!!

So I just bought a diva cup and I started using it today. I spent like fifteen goddamn minutes playing in my own fucking period blood tryna get this stupid cup out!! My hands were covered in blood. I've seen hundreds of reviews of people saying they loved using the cup. So what the hell am I doing wrong? It this how it's going to be every time I have to take it out?

I realize it was my first time and it'll get easier as time comes but I followed the instructions perfectly but still got covered in blood.

Help? Lol.
