New to menstrual cups (kind of)

Hello everyone,
I have been thinking of buying a menstrual cup for the first time and was hoping you could all help me out with choosing a cup. I had heard about them years ago and was interested but never ended up getting one, but lately I've been seriously reconsidering it.
I am in my 20s and not sexually active. My periods are quite moderate- on my heaviest day I might go through a regular tampon in about 2-3 hours- I usually use pads though. I am having difficulty finding my cervix so I don't know if it is high or low. I used to assume that I had a low cervix because it seemed that I often had trouble inserting my tampons high enough and they often felt like they were going to come out on some days but I don't think I feel anything that could be my cervix. My fingers are quite short though- my middle finger is about 8 cm- but I could just be missing it? Does it sound like I probably have a high cervix?
Also, I live in Canada, so I'd prefer a cup I could get easily to ship here without massive shipping costs. I know there are Divacups in my local grocery and drugstores but I also wouldn't mind ordering something online if it can get here easily.
Thanks!
