Mixed results with new cup.

I think I need some help. o.O
I am a first time cup user and I haven't been able to get it to work reliably. I've been reading this community the past few days and trying a lot of the suggestions. I have a size 2 Diva cup. It seems to go in and open just fine. I think I've found my cervix and it seems to be pretty far back. I haven't been able to tell if my cervix is in the cup as I see a lot of people suggest, but I don't believe the cup is going over it.

It's been leaking most of the time I've had it in, which is fine, I understand that there is a learning curve involved for most people. It leaks when it's not full. It leaks when it's half full, it leaks right away sometimes and sometimes it's in a while before it starts leaking.

I've tried different folds, different positions, and I've turned it inside-out. It seems to work better inside out. It worked pretty good when I was sleeping in the right side out position.

I've ordered a Lunette also. Just in case this just isn't the cup for me.

Is there anything else I can try?
