Leaking brown goop-inevitable?

 I've been using the Divacup for about three months now and it works great the first three days or so of my period. My periods are usually really heavy, and it's been fabulous on the really heavy days- I hardly get any leaks at all. The problem is on the last few days of my period when the brown discharge starts to come. For some reason, my cup never catches the stuff! And there's a lot of it, so much that I have to use a regular pad. When I pull out my cup, there's always the stuff clinging to the outer walls and never any actually inside the cup, but the regular blood never leaks. So is this sort of leaking inevitable with menstrual cups, or am I doing something wrong? It's so frustrating having to wear pads again- I can't stand them!
