Which Cup To Buy?

Hi. I really want to make the switch to a menstrual cup for health reasons, economical reasons, and environmental reasons. I saw one in Whole Foods a few years back and fell in love with the concept! I bought it on the spot! It was the Keeper, moon cup the natural rubber one. It was before I had my son so I bought size B. It was way too long even with the tip cut off. It came right to the tip of my opening when standing and when sitting it would poke out. It was also extremely uncomfortable and after time painful inside. It was too wide and I could feel it pressing out on my abdomen and in the back part of my uterus. I didn’t leak, and I had a good suction. I tried several times to reinsert it, even when I was not on my period. It just never felt comfortable. I was so disappointed.

I have been reading through the posts and trying to figure out what would be the best cup for me, but really I am even more overwhelmed than before. I never know there were so many options! I would really appreciate a little advice from experienced users, since I am basically a first time user. I am 30 yrs old and have had 1 vaginal birth. I am 5 feet tall and petite inside and out. I have a narrow and short vaginal canal and my cervix is low lying. I have extremely heavy periods. I soak through the largest size ob tampons in an average of 1-3 hrs at my heaviest, which usually lasts a couple of days. What do you think would be the best cup for me and where is the best place to buy that cup? Thank you for all your advice!
