Problems swimming with my cup

I have a large blue lady cup, and I love it.  I've had it for a few months, and haven't had any problems, except swimming.

Everything that I've read says that cups filling with water are either full before you start swimming, or aren't open and sealed completely.  I empty my cup right before swimming, make sure that it's sealed, and after 45 minutes to an hour of swimming the cup is full to the top with pool water (and a little blood).  As soon as I get out and start walking to the locker room, the water starts leaking out, but when I go to take the cup out, its completely open and where I left it.  I've also noticed when I'm not wearing my cup and I get out of the poor, I can feel the water leaking out of me.  Is that normal, or do I just have weird anatomy that's also causing the cup to fill with water?  Any suggestions?
