New Mooncup UK leakage

Hi Ladies,

I'm new to this group, but I have been browsing your posts for about a month now because I had ordered a Mooncup UK size B, and I've been eager to get usage tips from you guys.  Anyway, I ordered the size B because I haven't had any kids yet, and I just turned 29.  Now, I'm thinking that maybe I should have ordered the A size because I'm having serious leakage, and very little fluid is actually being collected in the cup.  I have tried different insertion techniques (the origami fold and the 7 fold), and the cup always feels like it is open and in the correct position.  I have tried doing Kegels, but all they seem to do is force more blood out.  I'm wondering if maybe I'm not getting enough suction, so this morning I tried poking through the holes to make sure they were clear.  However, I am back to wearing tampons today because I'm working a 12 hour shift, and I really didn't feel like messing with this in the bathroom all day today.  Tomorrow I'm off, so I will try to use it again.  I'm really wondering how much of a difference the bigger size could make, and if it's worth buying another one.  Any advice you ladies could give me on how to stop the leaking would be greatly appreciated as I'm sooooo tired of tampons and pads.

Thanks much,
