Leaking with the Diva

I've used my small Diva for 5 full cycles now, in the process of my 6th. I've suddenly began having leaking issues during my last cycle and the current one. I'm certain the cup is in correctly, I can hear and feel it suction when I place it. It will rotate, my cervix is in the cup, and I can't feel any gaps at the top.

It seems fine when I first put the cup in, but an hour or two later... it starts leaking. When this happens, there's not much blood in the cup at all; usually between maybe 1/8th or 1/4th of an ounce. It's as if the cup moves into a different position at this point and stops collecting blood. I just start bleeding around the cup.

I'm only 20 and a virgin, but is it possible that I just need a larger cup? The Diva with the stem cut off is the perfect length for me, so.... any recommendations? I'm just so confused since it's been working so well for me until now. D;
