Popping open to quickly, ahh!

Hi everyone! I'm new to cups, new as in first time yesterday, and I've been lurking around here for awhile. All of the posts were so helpful in guiding me to my first cup.

So I bought a fleurcup a few weeks ago when they were having their sale and I just got it yesterday. Even thought my period shouldn't have started for another 5 days it came yesterday right before my cup was delivered like it knew my cup was here. Yesterday was a battle getting the cup in (the first time took me 20 minutes) and I'm starting to get quicker with it today but I still seem to be having the same problem with the cup poping open when I've only got it half way in. The 7 fold is hard for me to keep pinched for long enough, the punch down is awkward, and the c-fold works the best but it also pops open too quickly a lot of the time. Are there any other folds that stay pinched easier or is this just apart of that horrid learning curve?

Other than that my cup has been wonderful and hasn't leaked once, even after an intense piyo workout!

Thanks for all the help!
