I'm a brand new cup user and I cannot even put the cup in past the rim without hurting or finding myself unable to insert it in further. I'm using a medium Meluna Sport (maybe I should try another?
If so, please recommend me.) I once was able to go half way, but then could not take it out without it feeling like I was tearing and there was lots of crying. (It eventually did come out.) I need serious help. I've tried different folds, positions, adding water- nothing works and I'm ready to give up. It's been 4 cycles now and to be honest, after my last attempt I am scared a bit to try again. I really want to use a cup, but it feels like everything is against me considering I can't insert it even. Is there anything I can do to make inserting easier?

No, don't buy another cup yet. You want to give up? Go ahead, it's OK. Put your cup away and come back to it when you are more mentally and physically ready to try again. Learn to work the one that you already have. Then after you succeed, decide if you like how it fits, or what changes you'd like to make in the dimensions if you think another would fit you better.

Have you tried using a water-based lubricant? It helps me a lot.

I soak mine in hot water before inserting. You may need a smaller cup.
