Ladycup Folds, bumping cervix

I'm having some issues with my folding technique using a Large LadyCup. I'm not having trouble with leaks so I'm sure the cup is around (o) my cervix, but every time the cup pops open it's hitting my cervix and hurts. I've only been able to use the punchdown fold successfully. I did try many of the other folds (thank you youtube video! big big help), but most of them are either not small enough for me to insert well and get placement right, or I can't even hold them long enough to get it in. The cup seems to be extremly poppy and tough to hold onto in the folded state. Will the cup ever get more plaible and willing to remain folded? With the punchdown, I've tried inserting with the folded part facing down and up and back (so the folded part would pop away from my cervix), but every time it opens, the cup edge brushes violently against my cerivx. Is this just something I need to get used to or are there any tips to get my cervix in the cup without it getting scraped and abused each time.
