First Time

So I ordered Lunette and it finally got here. I decided to try a dry run since it wasn't that time. The first couple times I tried the C fold which just didn't work for me. It would pop open before getting in. I then tried the push down fold which worked wonders. I got it in and removed it almost immediately without too much trouble. I waited a while then tried it again this time leaving it in longer. When I went to remove it later it had moved further in so getting it out was difficult with my short little fingers. I panicked too quick I think which made it harder. Any tips on removal for short fingered gals? I could reach the stem just fine but not the cup or base.

First use trouble

I've been researching cups for a while now and finally got my first one this week (size 1 sckoon cup). I'm familiar with my anatomy but am a virgin, and had trouble with getting it in-finally got the triangle fold to work, but it didn't open all the way and has shifted so that I can't quite find the stem. I can feel part of the cup when I bear down but am too tight to get a finger and thumb up there with the folded up cup to pull it out. How do I get this thing out, and how can I keep this from happening again?
Thanks.
