painful to insert and remove

I've been using my Lunette for about three cycles now (though not exclusively), and thanks to this community, I finally got the courage to trim the stem enough. Now I can't feel the cup at all while it's in. Yay! But it still hurts to insert and remove. Afterwards it takes about an hour for me to feel recovered. I'm a 22 year-old-virgin and I have the small Lunette. I can only fit one finger in. I've been using lube and the 7-fold. I also tried the punch-down fold. It was about the same, although harder to hold on to. Does anyone else have this problem? Has anyone solved this problem? Anyone have any tips? Thanks!
