cervix changes?

Hello friends!

I've been using my Lunette for about 6 months now and love it just like I thought I would. I tell everyone I can about cups - I even made a powerpoint presentation, and I've presented about cups in a couple of different classes at my university. About 1/5th of the people I tell are truly interested in using a cup, so that's great news!!!
So in that regard, a great big thank you to all of you for providing wonderful information and resources. The cup has changed a lot of other things about my life, not just my period, so I'm especially grateful for this community (maybe I'll post again later on some of those changes).

Right now, though, I have a slightly pressing question for you all.

I just started taking birth control about 3 weeks ago. Besides having frequent breakthrough bleeding (my last period ended just this past Saturday, and lucky me, it started up again today), I've noticed what I think is a change in the position of my cervix. Now if I weren't using a cup I definitely wouldn't have noticed this at all, probably.

Before I started taking the pill, my cervix wouldn't move much. It always stayed kind of tucked off to the left side of my body, and the Lunette was the perfect length. But now I feel like it's moved "forward" more - I have more trouble getting the cup to open inside and sit around my cervix. I also feel like I don't have to push my cup up as far.

It's been pretty annoying, what with the frequent bleeding, to use my cup and have trouble with it every time, right when I'd gotten the hang of it, you know?

So... has anyone else experienced this? If/when (hopefully!) my period evens out again, after the three-cycle mark or whatever, do you think it will change again and my cervix will move back into its normal position? I was planning on getting a 2nd cup anyway for my very heavy 2nd day flow, but with the pill it's lightened up some, so maybe I need to buy a 2nd, shorter one for while I'm on the pill?

Any thoughts/suggestions are greatly appreciated! Many thanks!
