pumping pain

I've been pumping for four weeks every two hours. And every time I turn the pump on low, it is too painful. The pain doesn't last that long but it scares me enough to not pump next time.
How long should this last?
I've tried two different size flanges so far and they were both painful.
I've tried Vaseline on the nipples, but they didn't help much.
Help! Ty in advance.

I'm not sure what advice to give you. Usually pumping on the lowest setting should be the most comfortable. Try massaging your breasts prior to pumping. That should help to speed up your let down.
