Leakage No Matter What!!

It seems my DIVA is gonna leak no matter what I do!!  I've tried EVERY THING!!
1-make sure it's SEALED via twisting/rotating
2-SWISH finger around to remove residual
3-turned it INSIDE OUT
4-locate my cervix & TRY to place cup accordingly
5-make sure ALL HOLES are CLEAR

After ALL this my cup still leaks.  Since I've been doing #4 the leaking isn't AS BAD.
My cup is NEVER FULL when it leaks. It comes to the 1/2oz line at most.
Also since doing #4, the cup is usu. betw. 1/4 & 1/2oz marks.

I have  been using my DIVA since 2004. I used it for about 6 to 8mo. w/GREAT dificulty.  So much so I put it away for about a year!
Then I found this site:-)  I got a lot of tips & was finally able to use it w/some success.  I've always had leakage though.  I'm envious of those who can wear their cup alone!!  I'd NEVER go w/o a backup, never!!

Oh and how do you KNOW your cervix is IN the cup???
I thought every thing inside there was 'smooshed together. So if there's a seal the cup should catch the flow rather the cervix is IN the cup or not..................

So I finally decided maybe the DIVA isn't the RIGHT cup for me.   I ordered & am waiting on a green LadyCup.
I do hope this one is for me.  If you have any suggestions, PLEASE let me know.
