Broken seal, or popping open?

Okay, so different question now. I get it in fine, and I check to make sure that it's open by running a finger around it. However, a short time after I'm out of the bathroom, I suddenly feel almost like a punch to my insides. It's more startling then it is painful, and it usually occurs after sitting or laying down. I go to check it, and the cup is still open. Generally at least. Once it did leak a little, but then it stopped. So, that punching sensation, do you think it's the seal momentarily breaking, or is it just the cup popping open further?

What happens if...

You insert the diva cup while laying down?

I just got one, and I've been trying for the last two hours to insert it. On my last try I laid back while trying and it slid in but then I remembered the instructions specifically said not to insert it while laying down and now I'm freaking out and trying to figure out if I should just take it back out or what.

I'm not in any pain or anything and I can still feel the stem but omg what do I do?! D:
