Helloooooo ladies!

So I know that questions like this are posted ALL the time, since I've been on this community from before I got my diva cup about a year ago. However, I want to make sure I'm getting this right before I buy anything else. :)

I like my diva, but I'm trying to get an IUD next month. My only concern is that the diva is so long that I have trouble breaking the seal to get it out. I can never quite seem to reach the rim, even squatting down in the shower. I have a hard time getting it to open sometimes, too. I'm worried that I would be a likely candidate to accidentally pull out an IUD by getting the strings caught or not breaking the suction correctly when I'm using my diva cup.

So here's my question. I'm trying to remember which cup it is that might be better for me if I get the Mirena: I want to stick with silicone, hopefully one that opens more easily and is maybe a little bit shorter than the diva (or at least one where the suction can be broken more easily). Is that the Mooncup UK? Anyone know of a site where I can get it cheapest?

Thanks guys! I'm so grateful this community is here and convinced me to try cups in the first place. It's going to be so weird using pads for the first month or two if I get the Mirena.
