The Meluna Shorty and sea sponge tampons

First of all, yes I know I posted quite recently but after a few days, other posts bring my older one down ( does that make sense? ) and no one else replies so anyways, I hope y'all don't mind! Anyways, from my last post, someone suggested sea sponge tampons and the Meluna shorty ( which both seem great for my very low cervix which is about a fingernail length in or 1cm, don't ask xD ) but they both seem to have to have very low capacity in order for them to fit. The Meluna could probably only last at most a couple hours on my heaviest day ( which sucks ) and sea sponge tampons would probably have to be trimmed really small ( am I right about that or is there some trick? ). Anyways, I was wondering if I could still use sea sponge tampons without having a small size and a teeny capacity like the Meluna Shorty ( I'm planning to buy the small or medium ). I know for one thing that my cervix is really this low ( read my other post pour favor ) so please don't suggest otherwise. And one more thing, I live in Canada so I have no idea which stores I can get a sea sponge tampon ( any particular art store? ) since when I check online, all I get are US websites ( with what I need but can't get ) and the Canadian websites that claim to have no sponges. I have no idea what and where to buy these sponges so if anyone could lend a hand, that would be greatly appreciated. Also, someone in my last post suggested I couldn't use any internal menstrual protection, is that true? I think that wraps up my questions and concerns for now. Thanks! I hope this will help anyone else in my place too.

First use, removal difficulty

Just testing my first ever cup the evacup.
Mostly positive was able to get it in with relative ease after trying a few folds. I found the punchdown works best for me. After this it unfolded but still felt a bit dented so gave it a small wiggle and all ok .
The issue came with removing had it in for 10 mins and all ok, but left it in for four hours this afternoon went to remove it to find it appears to have somehow sucked my cervix down and into it.
After much bearing down i managed to pinch the rim and my cervix too Owch! and break the suction (luckily my IUD is still in place was a bit concerned about the strings),bit graphic but my cervix was deffo hanging lower than usual and took a couple of minutes to retreat to it usual high up position. Just wondering what ive got wrong. I would say my cervix is medium to high I have to really scrunch over and bear down just to get my middle finger on it so dont think its a case of the cups too big. I made sure to insert the cup not too high either.

Any advice would be much appreciated

Please help! 😄
