Hello everyone, I am very happy I came across this little gem of a page. I have heard about cups in the past and have always been curious so today, as I sit here on my period using a disgusting tampon because I'm out of disgusting pads, I decided to order my first menstrual cup. I've read over a few posts, looked over some pictures and did some digging just to find myself a bit overwhelmed with all of the options, sizes, numbers, etc.
I need some help in deciding which cup to choose as my first.
I am 24 years old, married, with one child. This is my second period since I gave birth 11 months ago.
I'm not really sure how long my vagina is or how high my cervix sits.
Before baby, my flow was normal (as far as I know), lasting 5-7 days with small clotting during heavy days. My first period postpartum was nothing out of the ordinary and this one seems the same just more crampy.
Basically, I'm sure this has been asked by many before me but I would like advice on which cup is recommended for first time users.

Thank you so much, I appreciate any replies!
