Help, please...

Hey friends,

So I've been having some issues with trying to figure out menstrual cups. I first started out with the size 1 Diva Cup because I've never had sex and I am 22 years old. I always felt like the Diva Cup moved around a lot and I would get leakage on my heavy days. So I bought a lunette size 2 cup to see if that would fix the issue. My thought was that the wider rim and bigger holes on the lunette cup would help with the leakage. And while I have found that the lunette cup suctions better, I'm still getting leakage, mainly when I stand up after I have been sitting awhile. I can feel the seal break and suddenly I have leakage.
Does anyone know why this is happening? Any advice?


Air coming out and what it means?

So I've only used cups for one and a half cycles and I'm still not sure about these things (about to buy a yuuki cup). When I've had them in while sitting or really just "being" I feel air escape. Like it feels like blood escaping but I check and there is none so it's air. So.. what does that mean? Is this supposed to happen? Does it mean it is being crushed? Does it mean it is the wrong size?
