Bladder pressure with my small Mooncup UK, looking for another one.

Hi everyone!
I had been "lurking" around this comunity for two months, since I bought my first menstrual cup and paniqued not beeing able to remove it. Thanks to you girls, I learned how to insert and remove without issues, and also that there are A LOT of brands out there. I bought the MCUK because I didn´t know about any other brand, and now I think it was not the best option for me.
I have the small size and it doesn't feel small at all as I can feel it agaisnt my bladder. I think that it can be also irritating my cervix as I get kind of sore of using it. I'm guessing that the problem is that the rim is way too stiff and protuverant. As for length, it doen´t stick out now that I just left two rings of the stem, but it is quite hard and sometimes pinchs the interior of the entrance. I can not cut it off completely as I really depend on it to remove my cup.
I´m looking for something with softer rim and stem, and a little smaller perhaps. I narrowed the search to:
-Small Fleurcup.
-Small Ladycup.
-Small Iriscup.
-Medium Meluna soft.
-Meluna Mini M soft???
I'm a bit scared of the soft melunas as I´m a bit tight in there and I´m worried about not beeing able to open them.

I would really apreciate if someone could help me with some experiencies. They are all rated very soft but I read that there are some soft cups with really hard rims, also that some rings are so squeamish that it´s really dificult to get the cup to open. I'm quite lost right now....

Sorry about such a long post and any posible mistake in my english (I'm from Spain).
