potential user concerns

I've only recently discovered menstrual cups (this week!), and I found this community through a Google search.

I really like the idea of getting a cup, and after reading a lot of the entries in here, I think I'll choose between the Mooncup UK or the Lunette if I do get one.

There's something very concerning to me, though, and it's that some cup users have trouble urinating. I already have some trouble with that (nothing major, just minor difficulty emptying sometimes, among other things) and I'd be devastated if a cup caused this to get worse! I can't really afford more trouble in that area. So, how common is this problem? Do certain cups cause this less than others?

I do really want to try the cups, but I'm afraid that if they give me any urinary troubles, I'll have wasted my money. I'm so ready to ditch tampons; mine almost always slide down so that I can feel them, which is uncomfortable as hell, and then when I push them back in, they sometimes end up sideways (horizontal)! Sorry for rambling.

Any help or advice you can give me would be great, and I'm sorry if I've overlooked any community rules, as I just found this place today.
