Trouble with keeper

I've used my keeper for two cycles (I've had it for 4 months but keep losing it, which tells you how organized I am. :D) The troubles I have with it are for one, when it pops open I feel as though it is shwacking my cervix.. pretty much like getting smacked in the face with a glove. Then the suction is almost unbearable and I feel as though it is making my cramps worse.
Then on the first day of my period my flow is so heavy I have to empty it every single hour on the dot or else I have major leakage, and even if I'm on time sometimes it still leaks. I have cloth pads for protection, but like the idea of being free from the constant scrubbing and soaking involved with them. Another problem is I think it shwacked my IUD out of place, which means another joyful visit to my gyno. I've considered trying a different cup for my heavy days like the diva, but I fear the learning curve since I'm already have so much trouble with the keeper.. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
