Would Trimming the Stem Help?

My large Fleurcup is leaking and I’m pretty sure it’s because I have a low-hanging cervix that sits inside of the cup during my period. I haven’t trimmed the stem yet, so I have to push the cup in as far as it can go in order for it to be comfortable. Would cutting the stem off (or at least shorter) and trying to position the cup lower give it a little more capacity?

Small Lunette vs. Small (softer) Fleurcup

Hello, I was wondering how the small lunette compares to the small fleurcup. I've seen a few posts about this, but all of them are about the older fleurcup, which is stiffer(as far as I know). I want to get a menstrual cup so I've been lurking around this blog for awhile and narrowed it down to these two, but I'm open to any other suggestions. I'm 15, a virgin, and my cervix is about 5-6cm up. I'd say I have a moderate flow, heavy for a day or two but that depends on your definition of heavy I guess. For me thats changing a super tampon every 3-4 hours, but sometimes it's not full before it starts leaking(sorry if thats tmi).I also don't want to have to empty the cup too often.
So how does the lunette compare with the fleurcup? And do you think these would be good choices for me?
