I gave up and now I'm ready to try again! Please help!

Hi everyone:

A few years ago I bought my first Diva Cup (Size 1) and it leaked constantly, even when it was not anywhere near full. It was too long and would feel like it was falling out of me anytime I sneezed. So I bought the Medium Meluna. This works perfectly on the first day of my period and then fails miserably on every other day, even the very last day when there is barely anything in the cup, it still leaks.

I gave up and I have been using tampons for years, but I'm tired of it. I am ready to try again. I am completely sure that I am correctly inserting the cups. They pop open and form a suction seal just fine. I have tried different folds to see if folds would change anything, but no. So my go-to fold is the classic C. My cervix is not peaking out of the cup either. Everything always seems to be fine down there but it still leaks! Which drives me mad! SO...again I think I should try one more cup. If this fails, I will accept that cups are not for me :(

I have no idea which cup to get next because there are so many! But I would really appreciate your advice! My cervix is low and my period is moderately heavy on the 2nd and 3rd days. I have no problem with insertion or removal, I just need a cup that fits and will form a real seal that doesn't break on its own or leak!
