Hello! I've been reading a lot of the archives about finding the right cup, but am still not quite sure.

A year and a half ago I bought a Diva Cup 1, and after the initial what-the-hell-am-I-doing period, I fell in love. I'm still in love! But my problem is this: it leaks! I know that it's fully open every time, but perhaps I'm not getting the suction right? I suppose I could experiment with it more, but by now I have my heart set on trying a new cup. The problem is, which one? The Diva Cup 1 works fine in terms of length and size (I've never even come CLOSE to filling it, even if I leave it in all day), insertion/removal and all that, it's just the leaking that isn't so pleasant. I'm 21 and not a virgin, but have never given birth. Does anybody have any suggestions on how to "vet" a new cup?

P.S. Additionally, but not as important, I have experienced some discomfort with the Diva Cup when farting or having a bowel movement. Is this normal? Am I using the wrong cup?
