Please help me pick a cup:)

Hello! I would like some advice. I need to buy a new cup, and I'm not sure whether I should buy a new model than the one I had before.

I've been using a Lunette (size 1) pretty on-and-off for the past six years. When I was younger it fit very well, and overall I was very happy with it, wore it horsebackriding/swimming/dancing/during yoga/travelling/everywhere. In the the past six months or so, I started having issues. I began to find it very difficult to insert and take out: I felt like I was having wrestling matches with my cup every time, which was both painful and time-consuming. Sometimes I couldn't get it to go in at all. When I succeeded it getting it in there, there would usually be some spotting some hours later.

Anyway, I got back from a trip about a month ago...and just realized that I forgot my cup behind. Whoops! So, I need to buy a new cup. Considering the problems I was having, I was thinking about buying a model other than the Lunette, but I'm kind of overwhelmed by the number of options. On the other hand, it is possible that the issues I was experiencing were due to normal wear-and-tear of the product, and maybe it's just time to buy a new Lunette.

Relevant info: I have a high cervix, I'm a virgin, and my flow is normal-light.

Thank you so much in advance! Advice and cup recommendations will be so much appreciated:)
