Leaking Mooncup.

My mooncup seems to be leaking, all the time, and i can't figure out how to stop it. It seems like everytime i use it, it always leaks, not a lot, usually a few drops which is even worse. I know the cup is inserted properly, and i know that its open. I turn it a few times once i insert it, and i tug on it to make sure the suction is working, but it's STILL leaking. When i insert my fingers into my vagina to feel the cup, there's blood below the cup and when i remove my fingers they're always covered with blood. I don't know what's going on. Blood goes into my cup when i remove it to dump it out, but it seems like its also around my cup too.

I don't have stem, and someone mentioned that her cup tipped without her stem, but there's no way i can handle even a tiny little stem, it poked me so badly.

Arg, I don't know what to do other than to wear a panty liner, which i really don't want to do.

Any suggestions?
