ow.. ow.. OW. HELP!!!

  Okay, so I DID end up buying the Lunette, and, as I suspected, it IS smaller, in many ways, than the Keeper Moon Cup. Since I'm on B/C [to regulate periods] and am going on an important trip when my period is supposed to happen, I started taking the placebos about two weeks early. (My periods usually start to happen early anyway, even on the pill)
  So, I got out my lovely Lunette, ran it under hot water so that it was more soft, and started to insert it via the Origami fold. This is the first time I've gotten any cup in. But, it HURT. Not SO much, but I began to panic. I calmed myself, and quickly removed it. I don't know how to describe this... It's like a cramp, but in your actual vagina. I know sometimes, before I get some clumps, it feels just like that. It was a constant pressure.
  So, my questions are: Has anyone ever experienced this? Is it just because it's not fully my period yet? (it was KIND OF a dry-ish run, as nothing was actually leaving my body yet.) Was it in far enough? Do you know what might cause this? Sorry for the questions, I just really want this to work out.
