is this cup for me?

so, i ordered a medium meluna, orange, ball-stem. i have a heavy flow, but was scared that a large would be too big. (which i regret now!). anyway, i used it yesterday for the first time because i started spotting. it went in fine, got it out pretty okay, but now its leaking and making it really hard to grasp the ball. my vagina is in a lot of pain because of how long i have to fidget before i get it out. i use my pointer finger and thumb, and bear down, and i can finally touch the ball, but its hard to even get my fingers in there...i guess i have a small one? who knows. the process of getting it out takes about 5 tries, 15 minutes, and a pulled arm muscle. but the meluna is short, and when i put my finger in, i have to like...really get in there, like almost my full pointer finger. and my vaginal walls touch, so its really difficult. after finally getting it out, it caught some discharge, but not much. and now i'm starting to worry: is this for me?

a cup seems so wonderful. and i was so happy due to the fact that i couldnt even feel it. and i cant wait for my period to really start (well, now i can, because i need to use tampons).

i know i need a different brand, because the meluna seems too short for me, but i'm not in the best of financial situations. my dad is laid off and my mom makes little money, and im at school, and get paid 40 dollars bi weekly. so...it's just not a good time to be like HEY NEW CUP.

so basically, is there any way to get a discounted/free cup? im willing to sell mine...its used once. i still have the instructions it came with. i just need something a little different/longer...i think.
anyone have any tips for me?
should i stick it out with the meluna? is this a normal horror story?
