Swimming with a Lunette question...

I have a size one Lunette menstrual cup I had horse riding in the morning and I rode multiple horses (Jumping, flat work, trail riding) and had no leaks at all. Then this afternoon I emptied my cup re-inserted and jumped in the pool for 2 hours, when I got out and went to shower there was the beginning of a leak (diluted blood on the toilet paper) and when I pulled the cup out a fair amount of water was in there! Why did this happen! I am also going swimming tomorrow so I need to know what to do. I am 13 and this is my first cycle using a cup.

There has also been more blood than usual as I though I was coming to the end of my period, could this be because I was doing flips and jumps etc. in the pool?

Thanks so much
