menstrual_cups

Hi!

I'm 20 and bought a Mooncup (small) a few months ago. I've been trying it for a few cycles but I keep leaking. I've been looking at several posts on here and other sites, but I'm still not sure what the problem exactly is. I think that either the cup is too small, or that I might be squishing it? Because I feel like I'm leaking more when I'm moving.

In the case that my cup is too small, I would have to get a bigger one, but I'm afraid it will start to feel uncomfortable if it's too big? I think I have a dangly cervix because the cups are never really completely full, but a high one so I guess a longer cup could work? I checked out this sizechart (http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/) but I find it pretty confusing and I'd like to hear what you guys recommend! :)

I'm seriously wondering whether it is possible that I'm squishing the cup since the mooncup has such a firm rim (which I find kind of annoying as I feel like it's pressing against my bladder sometimes). Do you think this might be the problem? Or is it just the size?

I really like menstrual cups so far but I want to stop leaking in order to really enjoy using them. So yeah that's why I'm asking :)
