i got my period yesterday so, as usual, i popped in my cup. about two hours later im leaking like crazy, so i think, no big deal i probably forgot to check that it was sealed so i go and reinsert it. this time i check to make sure that it's sealed (it is). but yet again, a few hours later i start to leak. this continues for the whole day and i just think to myself.. it is the heaviest day of my period, maybe its just that, tomorrow i won't leak. well, what do you know, i wake up to my cup leaking. i go to empty it, thinking that surely it's full, but no, its not even halfway. i've been using the origami fold (the one i always use) but that doesn't seem to be working so this morning when i reinserted i used the punchdown and that seems to be working (so far). if this doesn't work, well then i don't know what else to do.  all the times i've leaked i've checked that i got a seal, and i have. the only unusual thing i'm noticing is that when i insert, it's sealed but when it leaks and i go to take it out, it's like the seal broke by itself, causing the leak. is that possible? am i doing something wrong?

double check to make sure that your cervix is not on the outside of the cup. I've done that before when I'm in a rush and it caused problems (for obvious reasons.) If I insert too high it happens.

Which cup do you have?

Check to see if the holes are clean.

Some women say that the suction breaks when they are very active.

Just throwing stuff out there.
