Fixing leaking by strengthening pelvic floor muscles

Has anyone had success in truly stopping/fixing menstrual cup leaks by strengthening their pelvic floor muscles?

I've used a cup for years but have never had one be truly leak-free.  I don't know if it's a pelvic floor muscle issue (I'm 30 and haven't given birth) and both small and large cups will have some leaks.  I have a heavy flow and a low cervix.  The cup obviously leaks if it's full, but later in my period when the menstrual fluid is thinner it will leak a little bit as well, before it's even close to full (and especially when I'm sitting at an angle or lying down).

i love the idea of cups, and I've used one exclusively for years, but it's just frustrating to never have one actually be leak-free.  I wouldn't trust it to swim with, for example.

Any input is appreciated. :)
