cup not unfolding all the way

I got a Meluna classic (actually I got the classic kit but in Small/Medium but the medium is too big) cup and I do the C-fold to insert it, and it goes in folded up okay but it doesn't unfold all the way once it's in my vagina. I've tried going around the outside of it with my finger once it's in to try to get it to unfold, that doesn't work. I've also tried twisting it from the little ring handle at the bottom to see if it would unfold itself, but that doesn't work. So it only unfolds part of the way, and gets some blood inside it but also on the outside of it (no leaks so far though).

Is there something else I can try to get it to unfold? It's uncomfortable to the point where it makes me feel like my cramps are worse. Or am I not relaxed enough?

Should I try a different cup? Maybe a firmer one? Or a smaller one?
