new user needs help!

 okay, I've been using the Diva Cup for the past few days, and it took quite a bit of practice and fiddling around to get it positioned right.  Thanks to other posts on this community, I was able to figure out that I have a VERY low cervix and part of the problem was that the Diva cup is just much too long.  By cutting off the stem entirely and turning it inside out (as some other users suggested) I was able to get it situated much better. No leaks, cervix sits right inside it.  Pretty comfortable.  
But it still rides a little low at the times of day when my cervix is at its lowest and it protrudes when I sit on the toilet or cough or pick up my kids (I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old, so that is many, many times a day!)

So I think that the best solution to my problem is to get a Mooncup UK.  Unfortunately I am in the US so I can't order one.  Grrrrr.   

So here are my 2 questions:
1.  Is there ANY way for me to get my hands on a Mooncup UK?   I saw something about an "underground railroad" somewhere on the forum, but when I tried to find it again I couldn't.   

2.  Is there ANYTHING available in the US that is as short as the MCUK?  Or almost as short?   Capacity is not a problem as I usually have light periods.  

thanks so much for any help that anyone can offer here!   I LOVE the whole concept of using a cup...now if I can just get one that fits right, I'll be the happiest menstruater on earth!  :-)
