First-time user: Lunette Cup

Hi there,
I was wondering if y'all could help me out. I'm 15 years old and started looking into menstrual cups because of Bree on Precious Stars Pads on YouTube. I figured it would be a good option for me to try since I do ballet and I dive(water sport). So I purchased the Lunette cup, and tried to insert it with two different folds while in the shower and also using water-based lubericant. I can get the rim in with both the punch-down and 7 folds, but after that it really hurts and I'm afraid to just push it in. I tried squatting, standing, and even with one leg up... I don't know what to do... help? (I've also used regular tampons with no problem, and I've tried to find my cervix but can't seem to)
Thanks,
15-year old virgin


Edit:
Thanks for the tips, I tried the c-fold and laying down with my knees up and I got it in! Do you have any tips for taking it out though? Because it took a good 5 minutes to get it out.
Thanks again!
