First Time User!

First off, hello! I'm new here!
Second, I scrolled through FAQs and tags for an answer but couldn't find one.

I am using a menstrual cup for the first time (Blossom Cup, size small). I am 18 and a virgin. I've mostly used pads for daily wear and tampons for dancing or swimming. I wanted to try a menstrual cup since I'm college dance major, meaning I'm in a leotard all day, running from class to class with no time to completely strip to change a tampon between classes (Plus periods and leotards just don't mix well when tampons ALWAYS leak). I decided to do a dry run (found out later that its MUCH different during menstruation). I managed to get the cup mostly inside with a lot of finagling, but the stem was still sticking out. I figured that was fine proceeded to try and get the cup open. It wouldn't budge! I tried varying folds with the punch down fold working the best. I'm pretty sure the c fold is too wide, as I couldn't get it in. How do I get it to unfold? Is my vagina just too small? Does my cervix have anything to do with anything? I have no idea how to measure it. Any and all help will be appreciated. Thank you!
