Problems on dry run

So I got a medium meluna classic and I just tried it on a dry run earlier. I had many troubles with getting it open but I had less troubles when I used the squiggle fold. I found it hard to push it in because it didn't want to budge. Once it was in and opened up the ball stem was just at my entrance. I felt faint cramps. I left it in for about 10 minutes and it went up a little bit. It was really hard to get out. It's so hard trying to fit two fingers inside to get rid of the seal. Once I squeezed the end of the cup it hurt so bad and I really don't want to experience that again. I managed to get it out though. Another problem I have is I accidentally pinch/poke myself a lot and it hurts. Also now that the cup is out I still feel like its in. The ball stem is not very grippy and I feel like my nails will rip it off so I just use the grip rings.

My period should start in about 9 days I just really hope it's easier then. Idk if inside is suppose to be like this but when I enter a finger it feels like my insides on every side are right there but I don't believe I'm tense. I find two fingers without anything quite hard to fit inside.

I also ordered a fleurcup. I ordered it on the same day but its still in Spain. It's only been 9 days though. Will I have the same problems with the fleurcup?

Meluna EU shop super cheap!! (for non-EU buyers)

Me again.

I went back to the Meluna shop and, in case this is not common knowledge here, their prices are phenomenal in comparison to what I paid on amazon.com, because shipping to a non-EU address automatically takes off the 19% sales tax Germans have to pay (all prices you see on the site are including the sales tax) during the check-out process.
I had no idea until I actually started the check-out process! And I only did it to see how much shipping would be on a special offer. Ha!

Needless to say, I wanted to see how much I can add to my cart without raising the shipping, and for 6 cups, shipping was still only EURO 5,71.
Their starter sets are EURO 17.65 the equivalent of $23 for two cups at today's rate, the single cups EURO 11.77 or $15. To put it all in perspective, I paid $27 with free shipping on amazon for the one I bought here!

I kind of went overboard once I did the math, but now I am hopeful some of those will work for my purposes, and some may be great back-ups.

Just thought I'd share this with you, as I see there are some ordering coops for this. Not sure if the price is better with volume purchasing?
This may be interesting for complete noobs like myself, who are still trying to figure out sizing. I am so excited!!

Also, they have more special offers than the other sites I have seen!! I bought two of their SOs.
