Questions before buying

Hello, I've been reading posts here for maybe a month and I'm planning on buying a cup in a week or so. Thanks to this community I'm not nervous about it at all, I just wanted to clear a few minor things up first. Background, in case it's relevant: I'm 18, not a virgin, I have a relatively light flow throughout my period (I've never had a problem with the slender regular tampons I use filling up or leaking, even when they're in for the maximum amount of time).

I found my cervix. It seems to be about 3.5 inches in most of the time (I can just feel it with the tip of my longest finger), and it seems like when I'm on my period it's either about the same or even higher? I've read that the cervix usually lowers during your period, am I just weird or am I doing something wrong? And does this mean that I have relatively high cervix?

And, based on all of this, does a DivaCup (size 1) sound okay for me? I've been planning on getting a Diva because they're the cheapest and most readily available to me, and I see no reason that it wouldn't suit my needs just as well as a more expensive cup.

Any comments or answers to make my cup experience go more smoothly would be greatly appreciated. :)
