I am beyond ready to start using a menstrual cup.

About three months ago I decided to make the switch from pads to menstrual cups, I purchased a soft meluna and a compact lily cup. I watched every youtube video on the face of the planet on menstrual cups and read hundreds of blogs but I still can't insert my cup. I spent a whole period trying to get it in by I failed every single time. I begun my period again yesterday and decided to give it another go but I still can't get it right. I am a virgin and I did read the virgins guide to cups but I still can't get it. I've used lube, I've tried lying down, squating and standing. I get about a quarter of the cup in before I either can't get any more in or it pops open and falls out.

Someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong??!!
