First dry run with the Lunette

Today I decided to try my size 2 Lunette. I turned 20 yesterday, so I assumed that the cup would be easier to fit in. Currently, I can fit in a finger ( index or middle) fairly easily, but two fingers (index and middle)  takes some struggle and I can not get them as far as one finger. I looked up the folds on here and I was able to easily do all of them except for the Origami fold. Then, I boiled some water in the microwave and put my Lunette in a another cup, then poured the hot water over it and left it to soak for 30 seconds. I hoped that this would make it easier to insert. However, being a virgin, I realized that I could not get my Lunette to go inside when I used the C, 7, or Punch-down folds. I do not know whether it was because I was sitting down on the toilet (maybe I could try sitting with the seat cover down) or if I was unknowingly tense or if I just have a very small opening. I began to feel slight pain at the opening of my vagina, so I decided to stop for today and try again tomorrow or on the weekend. I really want to try and get the Lunette in before my next period, so any help would be much appreciated.
