Ear stretching help 3mm??

On wednesday I bought a 3mm spiral taper (my ears haven't been stretched before) so I went on to trying to stretch the piercing, and could only get it about half way through, then it refused to move without ridiculously hurting. Today I decided to try a straight plastic 3mm taper but the same thing happens, it will go half way through then won't move. I've tried to lubricate it, to numb my ears etc but nothing seems to work Any tips on what I can do? Also, if I leave it a few days without trying to stretch it, won't the piercing just reduce in size again?? Thanks x

    You are going WAY too fast. You should get jewelry in 1.6 mm, not 3 mm. You need to wait 2-6 weeks between stretches and not skip any sizes! Stretching should NOT be excruciatingly painful, and if it is, you’re doing something wrong!
