Need help with cup fit after having two babies.


I need help I am now back to wearing tampons. BOO. I have had two babies pretty much one after the other they are 16 months apart. I am now back to getting my friend every month and it's super heavy. I have the diva cup 2 now and have turned inside out to get it to feel comfortable. But the thing is it sit really low like almost to the point it might fall out but doesn't. It's been 8 months since I had my last child. Do I need to strength up my muscles or do I need a shorter cup. Please can someone help I really don't want to use tampons anymore. I would also like to try a different brand any recommendations. Thanks to all the cupper's out there.
This is my very first entry.

Diva cup, bad fit? leaking, not staying put.

I've tried a moon cup in the past and pretty much had exactly the same problem, it felt too big, leaked constantly and was very difficult to remove.

I have a tilted cervix, have had a baby by emergency c-section, am over thirty, but very small in stature so this time have opted for a diva cup size 1, though I seem to have a particularly heavy flow. It leaks, I cannot turn it once it's in at all, and once it's in, it seems to travel upwards and to the side, so that I can barely grasp the stem at all, and, frankly, getting it out feels like a horror show.

I really want this to work.

What am I doing wrong? Is it my cervix? is it the size? am i not getting the seal right?
