Trouble with placement

I'm just starting my second cycle using a menstrual cup. I chose the Lunette size 2 (larger size). I am not having any trouble inserting or removing, but cannot seem to figure out leakage. I have a pretty heavy flow the first few days of my cycle. Sometimes there is a little in the cup, other times none. After posting on this forum last month, I figured out that my cervix is high and off to the right. I've tried turning my cup inside out and angling it or trying to place it over more to the right, but that hasn't worked yet. There just doesn't seem to be that much room to maneuver in there, if you know what I mean. Does anyone have any suggestions about what I'm doing wrong?
