I'm back (from a while ago) with some questions....

Looks like I'm the April Fool today; Diva played a cruel trick on me, she leaked!

I've been having issues this cycle (and a little bit last cycle actually). I woke up yesterday with leakage too. At first I thought it was because I had put my cup in wrong, but I clearly remembered being able to turn it (and I can turn it quite a few times), the holes have been clear (as I make sure to clear them out when I rinse it off). Last night when I changed it, it somehow managed to leak in the 5 hour window from when I last went potty at work (everything looked good) and when I got home and changed it.

Each time the cup was full, but just to the first ridge and not up to the holes (even when squeezing it a tad to remove it).

I'm wondering if I need to go up to the next size. I'm 26 (I'll be 27 in May). I have never been pregnant. I know the "after age 30" thing is just approximate, so I'm wondering if that will help, as I've seen with other cups (LadyCup comes immediately to mind) that recommend their larger size after age 25/26.

After seeing the prices on South Coast Shopping posted a few posts back, I'm also wondering if maybe I want to try the Mooncup; but again, if the smaller Diva is giving me problems, should I order the larger size of the Mooncup too, since their only stipulation is after a vaginal birth, and not age based, but being that other cups recommend larger based on age (due to body changes after a certain age)? Or should I just stick with trying the larger Diva?
