So, I'm fairly used to the cramps I get on my period. This is the first time I've used my Lena cup during my cycle, and I've noticed that when I'm sitting or lying down, I get some cramps.

I tried removing the cup and sitting down, and there was no cramps but as soon as it was back in place and I was sitting on the toilet, the cramps were back. However, when i stand up the cramps are gone.

Any ideas about what I can do for these cramps?

A couple of shots in the dark:
If you have a small, the cup might be borderline too narrow and shifting so it bumps your cervix. If you get another cup, a wider one might suit you better. If you still have the stem on it, it might be keeping the cup from tilting with you when you sit/lie and thereby bumping your cervix. Off the top of my head, I think the Lena has a flat tab stem. Turning the cup so the stem faces | instead of - (or whatever direction is best) might allow it to bend with you.

Or, its your first round with a new cup and your body will take a couple of cycles to get used to it.

I will sometimes get slightly stronger cramps right after inserting my cup. Could be something to do with it coming into contact with the cervix, or vaginal/pelvic muscles feeling like they need to contract to hold it in at first (for me) or in certain positions (like sitting/lying down for you).

Not really sure what the answer is here! But I wish you luck in finding a solution~
