Hello everyone =)

Unexperienced cup user, I'm 22 and a virgin, regular flow and medium-high cervix. Just getting familiar with my small fleurcup, it’s my second cycle using it. And it's brilliant, I donn't have any problems opening it, I’m very comfortable wearing it and I was in love after the first day.  The grip rings are very pronounced and I was starting to get irritation, but wearing cup inside out fixed that problem. However, I have a feeling that something is wrong. After 5-6 hours wearing my cup it didn't leak as such, but I was starting to have light brown marks on my underwear. When it happened for the first time I thought that cup is full, but it was half empty when I checked. After I inserted it back, I cleaned the bottom of the cup and the opening of my vagina with wet wipes, but after a couple of hours there were traces of blood again. It seems that blood is slipping through the seal a bit. Can anyone advise me something? Is it me inserting it wrong or is it ok for it to leak this way? Unfortunately, I'm a student and can't afford to buy a different cup to try it out at the moment, at least not before I'm certain that it's not my mistake but just cup not working for me. Will be grateful for any advice.

It's probably "residual slobber." Skim/Read this if you haven't already: https://kuradi8.livejournal.com/

Thank you very much for the answer, looks like it really can be residual slobber. And thank you for making this faq! It's amazing, especially for the newbie like me.
