Long term Diva Cup user now having problems

Hi everyone

Well I seem to have a bit of a mystery which I hope you can help me to solve.  I've been using the Diva Cup for over a year now with no problems at all until this month!  I haven't been able to get the cup to catch a single thing.  It's just leaking like crazy!!  When I get the cup in it seems to be perfectly open and smooth but I don't seem to be able to get it to seal.  I can turn it around no problem and like I said before it seems to be open perfectly.  This may be a stupid question but can heat affect it at all?  We're experiencing temperatures in the 40's (celsius that is!) over here at the moment and I was wondering if that could be affecting it?  I'm very puzzled by it and I really don't want to have to resort back to using tampons after all this time!

Thanks in advance.
