Trouble Inserting

Okay, so here are the basics... I'm a virgin, trying to use a small Lunette, and I can't seem to get it in all the way, or make it pop open. I've been trying for about 6 months now, and have tried using just about every trick I've seen on here and I still can't get it to work. I'm fairly certain that I am "aiming" at the correct angle, and I have tried every possible fold. I've made some progress, meaning that I can now get it in about halfway, but I'm not sure if the whole rim is in or not. When I get it that far, it just hurts so much that I can't seem to do anything with it and end up taking it out because of the pain. It feels like there is no room for it to pop open. I use tampons all the time, but for some reason my cup just hurts like crazy! I'm pretty determined to make this work but I have no idea how! Part of me wants to just shove it in no matter how much it hurts, but I usually chicken out once it starts to hurt. I've tried it while on my period and when I'm not...with lube and without...in various positions. I just don't know where to go from here! If anyone can provide any suggestions or help I would greatly appreciate it! :)
