Meluna Mini Soft vs Classic??

Hi everyone,
I've been a bit of a lerker for a few years now, just checking in when I have an issue and also when I bought my first cup.

I have a small Mooncup that I've been using for maybe 3 years or so? I always put up with the issues I had with it till now thinking that's just the way it is but I want a new cup now.

The problems I've had with Mooncup is on the first couple days of my period my cervix drops and the stem nub on the cup sits just inside the entrance and it's annoying. Also I have Multiple Sclerosis (neurological disease) and it affects my bladder, I get urgency so I can't hold on for very long and I also go reasonably frequently. The Mooncup rim is large and stiff so it puts pressure on the urethra which is irritating and also restricts the urine flow which I really don't need.

I suspect the cup rim pressure thing could be because I have a small vagina and need a smaller and possibly softer cup. So I've just ordered a MeLuna Small Mini in Soft, the MeLuna Small seemed to look a bit long for when my cervix drops. I was going to get the Mini Classic but I read in a post that the Mini Soft rim is stiffer then the Small Soft rim so might still pop open easily enough and be soft enough not to irritate the urethra. Anyone able to confirm that for me? or is it super soft and difficult to pop open or get leakage?

Who has tried both or compared them by hand? I still have time to change my order to the Classic if I need to and there aren't many of video's or pictures comparing these two specific cups.

Thanks for any help :)

BTW I'm 28, 5'3, petite size and not a virgin.

UPDATE: I'd just like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who has helped me with this, I really appreciate it! Everyone in this community is so supportive and it's so nice to feel safe to speak freely about all this stuff :-)
