Too wide, too stiff, or both?

Hey peeps,

I originally got a small mooncupUK around a year ago but I was quite intimidated by the size of it (it's about as long me in there) and found it uncomfortable and painful and scary, as you do when you're new. So I ended up getting a meluna MINI small and it's been super dreamy but being the smallest cup on the market it loses out on the capacity side of things. So I decided to give my MCUK another shot today, now that I'm more experienced, and it actually went in just fine, but it's still a bit uncomfortable due to the pressure it's exerting on the walls of my vagina.

So here are my questions. Will my body get used to it and stop being uncomfortable? Will it make a difference to attempt to tone up my muscles by doing kegel excercises (whatever they are, squats and stuff?)? Or should I just look into getting a different cup and if so is it just a softer cup I need, or one that is as thin as the meluna, 40mm. There are a few cups that fit that criteria but I'd like to know if I can get better capacity by going up to 44mm like the MCUK because I am limited by having my cervix about 40-50mm in. So, too wide, too stiff, or both?

As for the background: 19, virgin and from New Zealand

Thanks cuppers
