Every cup leaking

Hello everyone,
I have been using cups for sometime now and I've finally decided to ask for some advice, because it seems I can't solve the leaking problem on my own. I'm under 30 and a virgin. I have three cups that I use, the small Lybera, the large Femcup, (not the Femcap) and I recently bought the Merula cup which seems to have the biggest capacity (40 mls) of all. I purchased the large Femcup because it initially seemed to me that the Lybera's diameter was too small. It doesn't matter what I do, they will always leak. All of them. Always. I can hear all the cups - and now the merula cup - opening when they are inside, I check if they have sealed with my finger, but they always leak after a couple of minutes. Is it possible to have a cervix abnormality? When not on my period I can feel my cervix low enough and a bit titled to the right side, but that's it. When on my period I can't feel anything at all. I tried to make my cervix sit inside the cup, but I can't distinguish my cervix or anything else down there, like if it has entirely changed its shape. Also, with every cup I have used, I don't have to break the seal to drag them down. There's this sound- even with the merula cup- like if air is suddenly balancing the pressure, and all I have to do is pull the cup out. I thought I could solve the leaking issue by myself but I'm really tired of trying without results, so please if you have any suggestions they will be more than welcome.

Edit:
The Merula cup (which I am most interested in making it work, and which I am currently trying) has a diameter of 40 mm. Is it possible if I finally make my cervix sit inside it to close the opening of the cervix resulting the blood to be trapped in the uterus or/ and to cause pain? I normally do not worry about other cups, but this in particular, seems to have the smallest diameter.
