My body continues to frustrate and surprise me...

When I started researching on here, and saw information about measuring your cervix, I assumed from what I knew about myself as a sexually active adult that I would find my cervix was fairly low. After reading the measurements on the cup I currently use, the Keeper, I assumed I was going to find that my cervix was pretty deep, since the Keeper is one of the longer cups and it tends to ride pretty high for me when it's in. THEN I actually followed the directions on here, did some poking around, and found my cervix quite easily (and I have short little fingers).

I'm pretty confused then why the Keeper is riding so high inside me. I have given birth - maybe I need something shorter and wider, like the large Lunette? The Keeper leaks for me - not a lot, just enough to leave a little smudge on a pantyliner. Has anyone else had this experience, or can suggest something?
