Buying advice for newbie

Hi all!

What an encouraging, supportive community here! I'm completely new to the menstrual cup world, but I've done some searching and want to buy my first. So excited to stop using tampons!

Anyways, I'm 20 years old, pretty petite-- 5'3" and 120 lbs-- not a virgin, and an athlete. My cervix seems to be pretty high-- I can just barely touch it at the start of my period. My flow is usually light to moderate-- the heaviest it ever gets is on days 1-2 of my period, when I fill up a super tampon in around 4 hours. After that, it's pretty light for a few days.

Based on the size chart and the research I've done, I'm deciding among a small MeLuna, a medium MeLuna, and a small Fleurcup. Any recommendations or personal experiences with these or others?

Thank you!!
