My cup always leaks at night?

I can generally wear my Diva Cup even on my heaviest days for around 12 hours, it rarely leaks unless I rushed to put it in. However, I have yet to get through even one night without leaking.

Sometimes I'll wake up with blood on my night clothes and sheets. But usually.... I'll wake up, stand up, and the blood all just comes out at once. I've actually gotten into the habit of keeping paper-towels on my nightstand; I'll grab a few and hold them down there until I get to the bathroom. Horrible mess!

Might it have something to do with the way I sleep? I tend to sleep on my side, with one leg over a pillow next to me.

Anyone else have this issue? Is there a way to stop it, or will I just have to use tampons for night time?
