Can feel cup

So tonight marks the end of my second full day wearing my diva cup (I've worn it for a few hours at a time, but never this long.) Removal has been hard but this evening I was able to remove the cup in about one minute and didn't need to squat! And inserting is now no big deal as long as I use a tiny bit of lube, I found inserting it with the curve down (with 7 fold) is much easier.

My issue is that sometimes I can feel the cup, like a pressure or fullness near the opening of my vagina, especially when I'm running. I can't push the cup up any farther. I've removed most of the stem, there's just a little knub left, but every once in a while if I move the right way I can feel it stabbing. it feels like its cocked off to the left side a little bit too, but the cup isn't leaking so I think it's in fine.

I don't think I have a low cervix, when I felt for it I could reach it but not super easily. I'm not fully on my period at the moment, however. I'm on birth control and have been taking it continually (ie skipping the sugar pills so I don't get my period) for over 6 months now under my gynecologist. I think my body really wants to have a period though, and I've been heavily spotting all month so I'm using the cup to take care of that, so this isn't a total dry run or anything. After about 12 hours it was less than 1/4 full. Once my period is set to fully start on Sunday I'll check my cervix again, but I don't think that is the reason I can feel my cup.

I'm an 18 year old virgin, by the way. With very little experience putting things up there, as I've only used tampons with sporadic success.

Does anyone have any ideas?
