New DivaCup causes pain and leaks!

Hey everyone!

So this is my first cycle using the Diva Cup model 1, I've always used pads, never have tried tampons before,my flow is low to medium, and though I'm not completely sure I think I have a medium height cervix.

The first night of my period I inserted the cup succesfully and went to bed, I had zero leaks and was super happy about that, but the next morning when I stood up, walked around my house and sit for a while, it leaked luckily I was wearing a panty liner; the same thing has happened for two days. I really don't know what's wrong, when I insert it I'm extra careful to make sure the cup seals, I rotate it and feel the ''pop''haha!

My other concern is that it has been giving very painful cramps, I usually have some discomfort during the first days of my period but that's not as painful as this. As soon as I remove the cup the pain is almost gone. Also, I had to take a break and put a pad on because I feel like my vaginal canal is kinda sore and swollen which I guess would make insertion and removal painful.

Sorry for the LONG post, but I really wish someone with more expertise could help me cause I want this cup to work, the benefits are fantastic and I bought it with some money I had saved cause it was a bit expensive so I'm not considering getting a new one. Thanks in advance!
