Suction and Length Problems with Diva...What do I buy next?

Hi All,
I recently found your page and have been doing research like crazy. I just got a Diva in time for my last period which just ended. After cutting off all of the stem, I could still feel it pocking me a bit. I have a short vaginal canal...I know that it is enveloping my cervix, and it is still poking me. It is barely inside me. I am 31 with 2 kids. The Diva didn't leak, openned great when I got the hang of it....BUT it also has super suction for me. I would squeeze the sides of the bottom of the cup, but that wouldn't break the seal. I also tried punching it back down while inside of me...but the suction would only break momentarily for it to flatten a bit and suction around my cervix, making removal difficult. Please help me. I loved the idea of a cup, and it worked great for no leaking...but the size and suction is a problem. I am looking at getting a Lunette or a Mooncup UK. Please tell me which you would buy if you were in my shoes. I am stumpped...even after reading many of your posts. Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me.
