Sleep leaks (possible TMI?)

Hi all,

I just started using my DivaCup yesterday and it seemed to be going all right. I got it in and it felt comfortable, I never even cut the stem. The whole day was great, no leaks, it almost felt like I didn't even have my period except for the slight awareness that there was something 'down there'. It wasn't really bothersome, just sort of like a very subtle pressure or suction feeling.

Anyway, the whole day was great til I went to sleep with it. I woke up about 8 hours later with huge leakage. Has anyone else experienced this? I never had leaks during the day so I can't figure out what happened. I was in my heavy phase but the cup wasn't full when I took it out. I did notice though that the holes under the rim seem to clog after a while and sometimes I can't tell if the cup fully opens when I insert it. It feels comfortable but doesn't really rotate that easily.

Oh, and sometimes when I urinate I realize later that some gets into the cup. Is that normal?

So that was a whole bunch of questions in one post. Still getting used to this although I really like it already. Any help is really appreciated.
