cup confusion

Hey everyone... I originally posted this on menstrualhut, but it was suggested that I should ask here as well. So... apologies if anyone gets this twice.

I just bought a Diva Cup, and this is my first period using it. Day 3, and I still haven't gotten the hang of it. I can't seem to get it in there so as not to still have a small amount of leakage (not enough to really stain, just enough to make me feel gross all day). I think maybe it is up too high for my particular internal shape, but I don't want to have the stem sticking out... I have heard some people say that trimming the stem helped, but I don't know... Should I? How do I know how much to trim?

I really want this to work out for me...
