My cervix seems to be very angled; having trouble with cup positioning and leaks.

Hello all! I am a 25 year old, sexually active person who has never given birth. I would love to use a menstrual cup for a lot of reasons, but so far I'm having quite a bit of trouble.

I have a Mooncup (the B style, I think), which I bought without really researching other options. (Dumb idea, but I just didn't know that there were other options.) I used itnfirst a few cycles ago, but had a lot of leakage and felt faint a few times when inserting, so I went back to tampons for a while. I decided to try again this cycle, and also decided to try to find my cervix. I did find it, and it seems relatively low, but it's also super angled toward my left side. I tried a few different placements for the cup, but had major leakage every time. It seems like a angle of my cervix is probably contributing to the leakage problem.

Has anyone dealt with this and found a way to deal with it? Are there other cups better for this kind of issue?

Thanks very much in advance; I really want to be able to use a cup, and I'm just so discouraged.
