Thinking About Switching Cups

Today I successfully was able to insert and use my Keeper Cup! I only get my periods once every 3 months and I purchased my Keeper about 3 months ago for that cycle. I had some difficulty then and ended up not using it. This time around getting it in was a breeze. Getting it out was took a little more time but still simple and easy enough. I have noticed that the stem is long and can be uncomfortable which is an easy fix but I feel that it is just uncomfortable in general. I know it is one of the stiffest if not the stiffest cup out there but I can feel it...a lot. It is just a constant pressure. It doesn't hurt but I wouldn't say I enjoy it by any means. After looking and reading through here some more I see that people often suggest a softer cup and the one that keeps coming up is the Lunette. Does anyone have pros/cons, suggestions, etc about this cup.
I don't mind the size and/or length of the keeper it just seems to be too firm. And since I am a HUGE hypochondriac I fear getting a latex allergy. Silly, I know.
Anyways, I know a lot of you will say give it a few days, let your body adjust. But honestly it's so uncomfortable I really don't/can't. I'm sitting at work just waiting to be able to get home and get this thing out!(I didn't bring any back up [ie pads, tampon] stupid me!) Any suggestions, words of wisdom, help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
Maggie
