Pain when menstrual cup is inserted

Hi
I bought the smaller Mooncup a couple of months ago and I really want to use it.
My problem is that I am able to, with some struggle and relativly pain-free, insert the cup. But once it is inside and expanded, it hurts. Sometimes I need to take it out right away cause it hurts so much. Once I had it overnight, but I could feel it all the time and it wasn't comfortable. I'm pretty sure it was not too low because when I was going to take it it had gone far up and I could barely reach the stem. That's also a problem, that when I take it out and pinch it to make the vaccum go away it hurts too, and it hurts during taking it out.

I am suspecting that the mooncup is too big for me, (I am not very used to penetration) Or that it has something to do with my Cervix...?

Anyone know what I should try next? And if I should buy a smaller cup, which brand do you recommend? I was thinking of a small MeLuna maybe. But I'd love your input.

Thanks in advance!
