Where did the seal go?!

Has anyone else ever had their cup stop sealing, seemingly from out of nowhere? I had a tampon in this evening because that was what I had with me when my period started earlier. When I went to switch to my DivaCup (size 1) before bed, I could not get it to seal. I'd insert, give it a gentle tug to check the seal, and it would start sliding out.

I've never had this problem before and I use my cup every month. Any ideas what could have caused the change?

Potentially useful information: I have quite strong pelvic floor muscles thanks to yoga, and I've never given birth. I haven't been sexually active with a partner for months. I've also been using a cup almost exclusively for 4-5 years now, so I'm pretty confident in terms of how to get it to sit well in my body.

Thank you so much for your thoughts and help!
