Trouble inserting on the first day of my period

I got my cup, a small lunette, four months ago, and usually I think that it is great, but the first time that I try to insert it every month, I cannot get it in. It does not go up far enough, so the bottom is sticking out a bit and it won't open up. Yesterday, I had this problem and ended up sleeping with it sticking out a little bit, and this morning, I still could not get it in far enough, and ended up wearing disposable pads to school, which made me really sad because I had not used any disposables since I got my cup.

Has anybody else had this problem? Is there a way to fix it, or do I need to keep wearing pads for the first day of my period and then switching to the cup? I'm thinking that maybe my cervix is a little bit lower on the first day. Is there a shorter cup that would help with my problems if there is no way other way to fix this? I really don't want to waste money on pads and/or another cup if there is something that I can do about it.
