I think I'm missing my cervix?

Hello there everyone, I'm a long time lurker but a first time poster. Here's a little background just in case it helps. I'm 25, no children, and I've got PCOS with a heavy period that lasts anywhere from 8-12 days. I've read all of the FAQs and beginner posts like gospel, but I still am having a bit of trouble with a particular aspect. My issue is that my cervix is very high. As in I can't reach it at all normally and can only occasionally just barely touch it (with a LOT of effort) during my period. I also think it moves around, as I've noticed the different angles my cup settles at sometimes when it is working for me. I'm on my third cycle with my large iCare (which has been quite comfortable as far as the stiffness, width, length, and stem go) and while I've mostly gotten the hang of it, I've noticed that there are some days where I must be getting the cup stuck next to my cervix instead of around it. I say that because there will be copious amounts of leakage with little or no blood in the cup. I run my finger around the cup and give it a little half twist to make sure everything is open the best I can, but is there any way I can help to make sure I get my cervix in the cup as well since I can't reach it? Or any pointers to help make sure I'm orienting it right? Or is this just something I'll eventually get the hang of? Thanks in advance for any help!
