Leaking problems with Diva Cup size 1

Hello everybody!

Although I've been reading here a lot and finding information about the problems I have with the Diva Cup, the solutions I have read about didn't seem to help me as far as now. I have a diva cup size one and I'm 26 years old.

I've been trying the cup for 3 periods now and I have leaking problems from the first to the last day. I have the feeling that cup isn't wide enough for me, but I have also noticed that my cervix isn't in the middle but tends to lean to one side in my vagina. I've tried different ways of inserting: from very deep to very low and inside out but I'm still leaking, which I find frustrating ofcourse! I think that it might be possible I keep missing my cervix but since I've tried different ways of inserting the cup I don't know what else I can do to try to place the cup in the right way. Although I can rotate the cup when inserted I find it hard to tell if the suction is good. I don't really feel it. So therefore I think the cup isn't wide enough... So I'm thinking about buying a new cup but I find it hard to make a decision about it. Maybe I need a cup that creates more suction and is wider than the diva cup. Any recommendations? Or do some of you have other tips for inserting the diva cup? I just wouldn't like it to happen again that I buy a wrong one...
