About to give up

I've had a size 2 diva cup (I'm 29, two kids via c-section) for 5 months now, and have never had the bleeping thing work properly.  Leaks all the time.  Most times there will be a tiny amount in the cup itself, but mostly it appears to bypass the cup and come out around the sides.  I've read most diva-cup posts and tried nearly everything imaginable (squatting, shower, all the folds, twisting, not twisting, trying to make it pop, warm, cold, wet, dry, etc.). 

Any last minute ideas before I pitch the stupid thing?

And yeah, hormones aren't helping my view of the dammed thing.
