Please help with the "gurgle"!

How can I get my diva cup to stop leaking?
I insert the cup and make sure it turns freely. Then with a finger I make sure it's fully open and that my cervix is not outside of it. It's good for about an hour, then it "gurgles" and I know I'm in for a nasty surprise. The cup gurgles when it usually 1/2 way or 3/4 full, so it is not as if the cup is full. Also, each time I insert it I make sure the holes are open.  It's been 4 cycles now and I just can't get the darn thing to work.

If it helps to know, my cervix is always quite high (which is why I chose the diva in the first place) and have a heavy flow with some clotting, especially the first few days, although the time of my period does not affect the leakage -- 8 on 10 times I'm leaking like a faucet. I'm in my early 20s with no kids, so I have the diva 1. I had contemplated buying the diva 2 due to my heavy flow, but my boyfriend insisted that I stick with the diva 1. Please help!
