Unsure of which cup to get :c

Hi everyone.

I really hope someone can help me out or at least give me a few tips on this. I am 27 and have never given birth. Reading up on the different cups I decided to buy a Large ladycup thinking it'd be the right one for me. Turns out it was too big. It wouldn't fold out and it hurt so bad. I tried with lube and every fold technique, NOTHING. So I then went and bought the smaller one... which fits and actually folds out, unlike the other one... but I am really uncomfortable using it because it seems like it "disappears" really far in over time and gets sorta errr... "stuck". Reaching it is really hard, I literally have to grab the end of the stem with my finger nails and slowly wedge it far enough down for me to get a good hold to pull it out. And this is after having pushed for ages with my actual vagina to get it to move down a little and sitting in an odd position on the toilet. Other than that, which kinda scares me everytime cause I think I'll never dig it out again, I'm very happy with the cup :(

It really bothers me because I love the concept and I want it to work for me. I don't want to waste anymore money on cups that don't fit or just aren't "right" for me. And seeing as I'm sure someone around here will have more experience than me... for the love of god, HELP!

Would getting a longer or more narrow cup do the trick perhaps? Or one with a longer stem? Which cup on the market has the longest stem but still has a small ish cup like the small ladycup has? I'd really appreciate it if someone could help me. Thanks in advance!
