me: in glasses

problems inserting Instead cups

Hello, I'm new here, as you'll soon be able to tell...

I've been searching through the memories and various other websites as well, but I just can't figure out how to insert the Instead cups. I tried it for the first time today, and it just seems impossible! It will go in sideways, but there is no "popping open" or anything. It feels way too big to ever fit inside me comfortably. Am I supposed to fold the ring in half twice? I'm feeling quite frustrated, and ready to just give up and use tampons. Help?
