Can't stop leaking


I have been using a cup for a few months now and I can't get it to stop leaking. I'm 35 years old, 3 kids all vaginal births. My muscles are far from loose though. My first cup was the moon cup (US). It felt too long and hurt. I then bought the sckoon cup. It is much more comfortable but I still have leaking. I tried turning the moon cup inside out to shorten it and that helped with the fit, but it too leaks. Within a short period of time both cups end up way up high. So high it's hard to reach them. They are both the large cups meant for women with children. I am wondering if maybe the smaller ones would actually be a better fit. It seems like maybe my vaginal walls are squeezing it upwards and maybe a smaller one would fit lower. I am thinking maybe it's getting squeezed too hard and not forming a seal. I know it is fully open but it is super hard to turn. They are for sure leaking and not just dripping residual blood. Anybody have better luck with the smaller cups even after children? I don't want to keep buying cups that don't work! I should add that when the cup moves up super high the moon cup is painful like its pressing on something. The softer sckoon cup isn't noticable.
