Help please! ...leakage

Hey friends,

So I've been having some issues with my diva cup. I've been wearing it for about four cycles now and on my heaviest days I am still having leakage and I don't know why. I'm wearing the size 1 diva cup. I'm 22 years old and have never had sex so I'm pretty sure this is the right "size" for me. My flow is average; maybe a little more than average but by no means super heavy.
I've been using the "seven fold" to get it in and I've been trying to push it farther and closer to my cervix because when I don't, it seems like I have more leakage, despite what the instructions are in the diva cup pamphlet. Otherwise, I've been doing everything it says to do. I rotate it to make sure it is fully open. I make sure the holes are not clogged. I don't push it "higher". (I push it towards my tailbone). And on my heaviest days, I empty it every three hours or so.
My cup seems to especially leak and the seal breaks after I sit or lay down. I don't know. When I go to take the diva cup out, it seems like it is tilted at an angle that it wasnt at when I first put it in. I don't know if this has anything to do with why its leaking.
Help please! I really want to love this product! I really want it to work, because other than the leaking, it's fantastic.
Any advice?
