Advice please

I hope someone doesn't mind helping...

I've used the diva cup size one for a couple cycles now. It keeps leaking! Like murder scene style! It's leaked while being active, while sitting, while sleeping too. Sometimes there is only a small amount of menstrual fluid inside the cup, other times it's pretty much empty.
I know it has popped open all the way because I have literally felt it pop open inside of me. Also, I've felt around the edges and it's nice, smooth, and open.
I don't know if I've ever felt my cervix. I have felt around in there and don't think I've reached it. But I must admit-I'm not really familiar with the inside of my vagina.
My stem has been trimmed pretty much all the way because it kept poking me.
Another problem I've had with it is bladder pressure-I feel like I need to urinate all the time even if I've just gone. I also have trouble urinating if I don't take the cup out.
Oh- I am 30 years old, no children, and slightly to moderately active.
I really don't know what to do. I think I just need a different cup but have no idea if I need a softer, wider, and shorter cup??
Thank you so much in advance. I'm so glad there is a community like this in existence!
