seal breakage

 Hi!  I'm 34, no kids.  I started out with a medium Meluna.  I'm able to get a good seal with it and it works nicely for a while, especially on the first day, then by the second day the seal is breaking when it's only got a few drops.  I can feel the seal breaking, it feels like bubbles.  

I've read on here that this could be because my cervix is taking up the rest of the room in the cup, so I tried a longer cup.  I got a MCUK size A and it does the same thing.  It positions itself very nicely, seals perfectly, then disengages when it's only got the bottom full.  It could be that my cervix is long enough to fill the whole MCUK.  When I feel the cup with my fingers while it's inserted, it feels like it's full of something solid and it sits pretty high up there.  I don't know if I can do anything about how high it climbs because it does that on its own.  I don't think I'd be comfortable with a longer cup.  Any advice?  Thanks so much!
