Where should my cervix be?

I'm 25, do daily kegel exercises with/without weighted kegel balls, have given birth vaginally, have a light - moderate flow, and my cervix is medium to low depending on what day in my menstrual cycle it is.. I recently bought the lily cup size B and not only is it too long for my body but the only way I can get it to seal so I don't have any leaks is when inserting the cup I have to angle it down instead of up. I can't seem to find anyone else who has this issue... Does this mean my cervix isn't where it's supposed to be?
Also I have quite a difficult time getting this cup to open... There just doesn't seem to be enough space! Which after giving birth I know that just isn't the case.
When I try to angle my lilycup in the suggested upward path there is just too much vaginal tissue over my pubic bone, too bulky and no way a cup is going anywhere in that direction... Which my cervix is not up that way anyway so I end up having to angle my cup down, then slightly turn it to get it close to my cervix and for it to open. I am so confused.
*I should also mention that my cervix drops into my cup so I can't even get my cup half full without it leaking, which is an issue for my one heavy day..
Should I try a shorter cup? Any tips, or advice would be so much appreciated!
Help! and thanks!
