Dry run trouble with the Meluna size M

Hello everyone,

It's been a long time. I used to have a Fleurcup L. It was great for five years but I always had trouble with leaks on heavier days. So I decide to give a shorter cup a shot, but also one that can handle a heavy flow. So I went with the Meluna regular M. I am trying to practice wearing the cup so that when my period starts again (been using Junel Fe for birth control) I will be used to wearing it.

The problem is I can't get it open. I have tried the C-fold, punch down fold, and double punch down folds and they all don't work. I've tried plunging the cup (that used to work with the Lunette and Fleurcup) and I've tried rotating it and using my index finger to help the cup open up once it's inside. Used a lot of lube to make it easier to slide in. Washed with warm water and rinsed with cold. All of these things that used to work do not work with this cup. I am frustrated and ready to give up but I want to give it one last shot. So to Meluna users, what do you all do?
