Cup making me pee??

I was wondering if any of the rest of you have this same problem. I have both a Diva and a Keeper, and every time I put either of them in, I constantly feel the need to pee, as if it pushes on my bladder or one of the tubes leading to it. Even when I sit to go to the bathroom, I usually can get a little out, but not nearly as much as it feels like I need to. Does this happen to any of you? Am I just not placing it correctly?

I also have never been able to get it so it doesn't leak. I will make sure it's popped open and that there is a seal, but I still leak. This has caused me not to use either cup much. And for those of you that talk about the cup making your cramps better, I seem to have the opposite issue; my cramps seem about ten times worse with a cup in there.

I want so much for this to work, because tampons rub me raw, on top of being inconvenient when going to the girls room, and I go through a super plus tampon in less than an hour during the first few days of my period. Any ideas?

Much appreciated.
