Diva A: stretching the holes (part 2)

Hey all!

about 2/3rds of the way through my last period, i used a blunt tapestry needle to stretch the holes on my Diva A cup.

It worked like a charm after that.  Though I still had to pay attention to what i was doing.  (i.e. if I was hurried on insertion it wouldn't work and I'd have to take it out and try again)

but overall it was very uneventful.

yesterday i saw my period was coming, put the cup in and was happy as a clam all day long.

but apparently i still have some insertion issues because last night I had lots of leaking, and today i have lots of leaking.
(3 separate insertions, leaks each time).  I'm hoping 3 times is a charm.

of course, I'm also worried that I buggered the thing by messing with the holes and now it'll never work again.

PS. anyone used their cup surfing?
I'm wondering if I should try to get the larger cup (lunette, is it?)
we're going surfing in july, and the second day of my period (which is today) is always a BEAR.
