leaks and removing

Hi! I'm a new user to Mooncup UK and I'm having a few problems. I'm on my second period now and the most pressing problem is leakage. I'm 19, have never given birth and have a size B. Sometimes it goes perfectly and I nearly forget it's in there but then sometimes it will be in for 30mins and ther'll be blood everywhere. I hear it pop and it seems like the seal is formed but I'm suspious that the seal is the problem as it moves quite easily.
I read a lot of the posts hear and lots of people are talking about places it around the cervix but I don't understand this, nor do I know where mine is (yes, I know as in I could draw a diagram but I don't know where MINE is) nor how do find i just stick my finger up and have a root??

Also what the best way to remove it? I do what they suggest in the guide (flatten it and move it out one edge at a time) and that works fine but if it's full I get blood on my hand and it kinda hurts a bit so I have to do it really slowly whic is a problem when I share a bathroom/often have to change it in public toilets.

I have to say though, this community has been such a help already! I'm pretty sure I never would have even managed to get it inserted in the first place without it!
