Leaks!

I've been using a DivaCup for a little over a year, and it's been blissful! However, this month has just been frustrating.

My cup has been leaking like crazy for the past couple of days. I'm not doing anything noticeably different. There's a good seal and it has definitely "popped" open every time I've inserted it (and I've done and redone it several times), but it's still leaking. It's not full whenever I take it out, and the leaking starts within a half hour of inserting the cup. I've got a light period and usually I only empty my cup once a day (twice on the heaviest day), and even then it's almost never full. I'm 20 and nulliparous, so I doubt it's a size issue, especially where I've never had any issues before.

I have a little spotting with it every month (I've always assumed it's just blood that made its way partially down my vagina before I insert the cup), but only on the first day of my period, and never enough to really warrant wearing a liner. I've gone through two or three liners a day this period! It's really quite annoying...

Any suggestions as to why this is happening all of a sudden, and/or how to fix it? I looked a little bit in the memories, but nothing seemed to jump out at me as a possible cause/solution.
