Bleeding the first time

So I just got my first cup. I got a size 1 Lunette. I'm 21, have not had sex, and have never really used tampons. So I was a bit worried. But I'm sick of using reusable pads so I thought I would try the cup.

Anyway, I got the cup today and sanitized it and everything, eager to do a dry run with it. The dry run was successful for the most part. The whole experience was generally uncomfortable. The only way I really got through it was because I had looked up folding methods on this site. The main problem came during removal. I thought it would have gone better than it did, even after reading experiences on here.

Removing it ultimately ended in blood. I did use lubricant, but I don't think there was enough during the removal. I bled a good amount and I'm not sure what to do. So I thought I would ask here...

Is it likely that I just tore my hymen and that I shouldn't worry about it? How should I treat it --leave it alone and just hope for the best? Or is bleeding a bad sign? And Is there a specific way of getting it to be smaller when taking it out? Hopefully I won't have this problem again...
