Cup recommendations?

Hi! I am looking to purchase my first cup and was wondering if anyone had any brands they would recommend based on:
  • I am 15 years old, still a virgin, and have had my period for almost a year - oh and I think my hymen is still intact
  • I can use applicator tampons easily (only lite and regular)
  • On my heaviest days I change a regular tampon every 5 - 6 hours (4 is a rare minimum) is this considered a light flow?
  • I can insert part of my index finger into my vagina but find it uncomfortable and do not know where my cervix is
I was thinking of trying either the small lunette or ladycup but I want to be able to go 12 hours even on heavy days (or a minimum of 9) and so maybe the ladycup doesn't have the capacity even though I have a relatively light flow?

Any recommendations will be gratefully received, thanks!

Edit: I finally went with the small lunette cynthia - and I love it! I posted my experience here: http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/2771432.html
