Different cups for different days?

I posted probably around or over a year ago about my small Lunette. I could not find a good placement for it without it making me need to pee OR feel nauseated. Well, I've been using Instead cups for a bit and decided to try the Lunette again. I am on the 4th day of my period now. I found that the Lunette worked fine for the first and second day, when my flow is a bit heavy (also rather clotty). I put it up higher than I have in the past and found that my cervix is a little off-center because the cup angled to the left. The cup seated itself with no difficulty. I wore it at home during the day on Sunday, emptied it a few times, and I was able to sleep with it in, with no discomfort whatsoever. On the 3rd day of my period, my cycle lightens up considerably. I was no longer able to seat the cup comfortably. I had to stop trying because I started getting nauseated & some places in my vaginal canal were irritated from moving the cup around.

Does anyone need to use different cups for different days during their period? Maybe my cervix moves and something smaller or softer would be better for the later days. I use cloth pads when I'm not using the Instead cups, but like to sleep with a cup in so I don't have to worry about leaks (I sleep on my back). I was thinking of getting a Meluna of some kind, something maybe a little smaller than the small Lunette, and softer.
