Capacity?

I just got my first diva cup last week, just in time for use. I put it in on teh first day of my period, which is always the heaviest, and within 4 hours i thought it was leaking but when i took it out it was full. or almost full and thats after half of the contents spilled into the toilet since im a newbie at the whole ordeal. Im prettttty sure i put it in right. the who suction spin etc after the first day it was perfect since my period is heaviest on the first day but reading through this community not many people have seemed to have trouble with a heavy flow. Is it just the capacity and i'll have to empty more often? or am i actually doing something wrong?
