Can I use a Divacup?

Hey Everyone! I've been lurking around this community for a few months, and I've decided to get my friend to pick up a cup for me when she visits the US. Because I'm only 13 and have got parents who do not allow me to use tampons and cups, I am unable to order online for a cup, and the only cup my friend has found available in America is the Divacup, and recently I've been wondering if I could still use it.

So I did what a lot of blogs and websites told me to do, and I shoved my index finger up my vagina. about 2 1/2 knuckles in, I felt a round and slightly slippery thing, with a small hole in the middle. I assume that that's my cervix, and after measuring my finger, which is about 8cm long total, I concluded that my cervix is about 6 cm deep and slightly to the right. However, if I reached my finger up higher, I could still go on the left side up a little more.

I assume that means I have a medium cervix, and after hearing a lot of people talking about how the divacup is a long cup, I was wondering if it'll even fit me, or if it's just going to be a waste of money. Please note that I am only 13, and I've approached my parents about the topic before, and all they've done is talk about how it's going to break my hymen and that it'll make me a slut, so I'm just asking for any advice on whether the divacup will work, if I should just stick to the organyc tampons and pantiliners I use, and if the cup will work, anything that I should be particularly weary of when using the cup.

Thanks in Advance!</div>

Update: Well, my friend just told me she already got the cup. Just waiting for her to come back so I can try it, and I'll post another update after that's done.
