Lunette Model 2, cervix is too low for this cup now

Okay, this is my third period with my Lunette Model 2 (my first Menstrual Cup) and my cervix was low like this last period as well, but this period seems a bit lower. It The tiny stub of a stem I left on the cup is still irritating my vaginal opening much of the time. There is no comfortable sitting position while using this cup. I'm not sure what to do other than possibly remove the stem completely.

Honestly now that this is my third period with this cup it feels as though it is too firm of a cup for me as it seems to partially block my bladder from being able to empty completely without forcing the urine flow or removing the cup to urinate.

And just laying here on my bed I feel the pressure on my bladder from the cup.

I am considering the FemmyCycle Low Cervix cup. I will also look to find that chart of sizes of cups for cervix types and heights. I think Meluna classic may have been one for lower cervices but I do tend to need a higher capacity cup as my flow can be crazy high for several days in a row, such as filling it up to the air holes in 4 hours or less.

I hate menstruation, but even though this is annoying my vagina and bladder, it is definitely a much better option than disposable paper products that cause me severe itching, burning, blistering, etc. Ha!
