Just got a Lunette, but I can't insert it. Help?

I now have my first cup! I am 15 years old, a virgin (duh), and I have the Lunette 1. One problem I have is that I can't fit the cup into the opening. My opening is so small and only the rim could fit in there. Maybe because I'm too tense? How can the opening be bigger?
My other question is how can I insert the cup through such a tiny hole? I tried the diamond, origami, and the c (c is too big) fold, but I wasn't successful. Sometimes it hurts when I slowly push it. Maybe it's the way I insert it? How do you guys insert it? What general direction do you insert your cup? Also I can hardly hold the cup because it would unfurl from the fold right when I insert the tip of the cup. ._. Any advice?
In short, what's the tiniest, thinnest fold? In what direction do you insert it? How do you fit a lunette through such a tiny opening? Thank you! :)
