Cervix and leak troubles

Hi all! I'm new here and just started trying to use menstrual cups (I've got the Lunette model 1) and like any newbie, I've run into frustrating problems. Reading the tagged entries for my specific issues has been very helpful! I still have a couple questions that remain unanswered, however. Wondering if you can help!

1) If you have a high cervix, will cups made for low cervixes still work well?

I ask because for the life of me, I can't find my cervix so am unsure whether my leaks are due to dangly cervix or something else, entirely. Sometimes I think i maybe found it low, but then can still reach my fingers extremely high up there without resistance which makes me wonder if it's actually really high and what I thought I felt down low is some other mysterious part of my anatomy. I'm trying to understand how someone can "go past" their cervix and it's making my mental picture of what's going on down there ten times more confusing, especially when I'm trying to understand positioning.

2) Is letting your cup open as soon as it's inserted fool proof whether your cervix is high or low, in keeping it from leaking? Does the cup naturally rise to hug your cervix even if you didn't position it any specific way? And if so, does it matter how you've positioned it if it's supposed to naturally hug it?

3) Did you all who have figured out the details of your cervical anatomy do that on your own, or did you get some of the info from your gynecologist? Are things like knowing you've got a tilted cervix information you can only acquire from a doctor?

I REALLY want this cup to work. There's just so many factors that it's making my head spin. I don't want to go back to tampons! They're just tempting because they're so much easier to use.

Thanks everyone!
