Leaking and pain

Hi y'all!
I've been reading this forum for some time now but I'm still not sure I can find all the answers...or maybe I just haven't been paying enough attention. I just started using a small yuuki cup and I'm not sure I'm doing it right, so I thought I'd ask.
1) I get some leaking on every other attempt, no matter how often I empty the cup and how I fold it when I insert it. I'm pretty sure I can feel it sitting in place but it always leaks a bit anyway. I'm thinking, maybe the small yuuki is just, well, too small? I chose it based on the advice on the site (I'm 24, never had kids, so I thought it would be better to get the smaller size, but I've never had the smallest vag in the world either).
2) As for my cervix, how can I tell if it's actually in the cup? Its position changes depending on how I sit and also throughout the cycle, doesn't it? So should I always insert in the same position or should I be able to do this right some other way?
3) And my last question is, I get some pain when I'm wearing the cup, not like menstrual cramps, more like in the vagina. Could that be because I've been trying so hard to get it right that I hurt myself or is it more likely improper positioning?

I really thought this would be easy because I never had any problems getting to know my body or anything, but I just can't get the hang of it...any thoughts?
Thank you for your wisdom, in advance :)
