Slippy Tippy Cup

I've used a menstrual cup for the last year and a half. The Diva cup was too long, so I bought a small lunette (I might've been a lady cup, I can't remember, but I'm sure it's a lunette) which worked much better than the diva cup. It's still a tad long, and sits JUST inside of my labia. Nevertheless, it worked great --until the last few months.

The last few months it's just... made its presence known. Sometimes it feels like it slips down or tips over a little (it doesn't actually tip, though; when I check on it it is still at the proper angle, which for me is way to the right). This is especially problematic, because as I walk I can feel it, and it makes walking painful and awkward. It especially feels like it is going to slip out of my vagina when I sneeze or cough too hard, and also when I stand up after having sat for an hour or so (like, for a class.)

Is there anything I can do? I went on birth control recently (for cramps, not baby prevention), and my flow has decreased a lot, and also gotten thicker and clottier. Could it have to do with the fact that I'm bleeding less? But that doesn't make sense? Relp? I don't wanna go back to tampons, but at least with those I don't have to keep running to the bathroom every so often to shove it back up there...

Would a shorter, fatter cup help?
