Advice please.

It had never occurred to me that there could be another option aside from pads and tampons but after a moment of being taken aback the idea began to grow on me. I did some research and decided that since I have an average flow, am a virgin, tend to have a sensitibe bladder when I'm having my period and am pretty tight (as in its very hard to get two fingers inside) that a small Ladycup or one of the coloured versions thereof would be the best option. So less than a week after I found out about Mestrual cups I bought a Greencup off ebay.

I was excited and actually looking forward the monthly curse for once, but the first time I tried to use it (in the seven fold) it split open down the side from one of the holes. I don't know if it's something I did or if there was a fault with the cup itself but the thing's now completely unusable.

So the thing I want advice over is whether or not I should assume that it was a freak occurance and get another coloured ladycup, hoping things will go better next time, or whether I should try another brand, and if I should try another brand what brand; bearing in mind the considerations above.
