New maybe menstrual cup user... haven't entirely decided

Okay so I am 18 and have no kids, and for the past month or so I have been wanting to try the NuvaRing birth control instead of the pill like I have been doing. I was worried about whether or not it would fit, though, because I have heard that it fits a lot like Instead, and I had tried that a few years ago and it didn't work for me. I don’t know if I was placing it wrong, or what, but it hurt. anyways so I came across this site and I had never heard of menstrual cups before, only soft cups. I decided that I would like to try one of these, because it might fit better that the instead did. I read a lot of recommendations on finding your cervix, and I did.

problem is, it seems way closer to the front than I thought it was. and it is kind of towards the left. also I read that it is supposed to descend when you are on your period, and I am not, yet. so would it get even closer? I decided that since the last time I tried instead, I was 16 and a virgin, and now I’m 18 and not, that i would try it again. i already had some from before. so i put it in, and it seems to be fitting, but it is a little uncomfortable, and the lip seems close to the front. it isn’t slipping or anything, but i don’t have to put my finger in past the middle knuckle to easily get it out. this seems nothing like the pictures on the directions that came with it. shouldn't it be farther back? I think if I got a cup, id maybe get a lady cup, since they seem to be softer and smaller. and I thought that menstrual cups fit lower than soft cups, and if that is the case then about half of it will probably hang out. idk I’m really wanting to do this, but i am worried that it wont work for me.
