The Degrees of Popability!

I have 95% fallen in love with my Selene, BUT I've had THREE leaks today!! One was due to the fact that I left it in for 10 hours and it overflowed (my bad!!), but the next two have left me wondering. There was blood inside of the cup, but I got crazy leakage. I *FELT* it ping open when I inserted it.

So let me get this straight... it can "pop" open, but still leak if instead of suctioning in the direction of our cervix, it suctions against a wall, right? In this case, we need to try and angle it towards the lower back, is that correct? How should the cup be positioned in relation to the pubic bone?

Any help would be much appreciated!

**EDIT** I was looking through the tags to try and find a detailed diagram of the cup positioning in relation to other parts like the pubic bone, etc., but can't seem to find one. Can anyone point me in the right direction, please?
