Newbie: Mooncup UK sitting too low

Hi everyone, I'm a newbie to cups, just started using my Mooncup this cycle. After a few teething problems it's working really well for me with no leaking.

However, it is sitting REALLY low (I've trimmed the stem right off), like partly hanging out! I'm pushing it in as far as I can, using various folds, but each time it seems not to go very far in and then to slip down...does anyone have any advice?

Just to pre-empt a few likely questions:
I'm 34, 3 vaginal births, using size A
My cervix (I think, can't say I'm an expert at finding it!) seems pretty high - I can get my longest finger in and still not feel it during my period

Thanks in advance!
