My cervix is taking up room in the cup?

Hi, I'm new here... My name is Brenda and I'm 16 years old. I'm on my 2nd cycle using the DivaCup and it's pretty much awesome... it doesn't hurt, and I got past the learning curve pretty quick. But for the past couple of days (this didn't happen on my other cycle) the cup has been leaking, and when I take it out, it's not even halfway full. It happens every 4-5 hours. So I did a little (actually a lot :P) of research and found that my cervix is probably taking up room in the cup, causing it to become less capacious and leak. Any suggestions for what to do? I've heard to turn it inside-out a lot, but that doesn't seem like that would fix MY problem. I use the punch-down fold. I am thinking that I should let it pop open as soon as the rim is inside, then just coax it in a lower than usual? Because usually I put it in pretty deep... and that is probably the problem. And I don't really want to buy anther cup, I really like this one other than this problem and I spent almost $40 on this one.You ladies are the experts here, what do you think? <3
