Is it worth it?

I've been looking into menstrual cups and I am rather frustrated. I'm young (under 20 but over 17), a virgin, have never used a tampon or had anything up my vagina. I don't think I have my hymen anymore (incident). I have noticed that women who laud menstrual cups have had to try different ones before getting them to work (way expensive), and those who are trying are constantly dealing with leaks and troublesome/painful insertion or removal or both. This is despite all the research they have done. It's not like they are cheap, or there is a one size/stiffness/length fits all. But I really liked the idea. Honestly, looking back at ur menstrual cup experience, or going thru it now, was it really worth it?

Please help with suggestions...
I am 25 and I have a 1 year old and am still bf so I have no idea when my period will return, but I really want to try a cup! But I'm very confused, there are so many options. I'm little (5'1) and my daughter was born naturally. Also, I'm allergic to latex and I can barely touch my cervix with my middle finger, not sure about during my period though. TIA!
