Heavy flow

Hey y'all!

I've been using a Diva Cup for about 6 or so months now, but I'm thinking it might be easier for me to "upsize" to something I won't be emptying out every couple hours. My period only lasts about 2 to 2-1/2 days, but it's HEAVY. I fill a Diva cup in something like 4 hours, meaning I double up with pads (I had to do that with tampons, too, so it wasn't a tough transition for me.)

I haven't had children and I have a very small cervix (everyone who has ever done an exam comments on it almost immediately.) I've checked the charts detailing capacity, and it seems like the Diva is already towards the upper end of these. I thought before I went out to buy something new, I could ask here for some advice and maybe somebody out there has been in the same boat and can help me out on this one?

Thanks in advance.
