I'm at a loss. I really can't figure this one out.
I checked the tags, and it didn't look like my specific problem has ever come up.
I've posted here before about having a size 2 that constantly leaked no matter what I did. So, I brought it back and exchanged it for a size 1. For about 2 or 3 months, the size one worked perfectly. I was so happy with it. Then, starting last month, (my period just started again yesterday) now the size 1 leaks constantly no matter what I do. I can't figure out if it's me or the cup. I don't see how my body could have changed that drastically in such a short time. (I'm 30, which is why I got the size 2. At the time, I was about to turn 30 in 6 months). If it's the cup, I don't understand why it worked perfectly, and then decided to go all wonky right after the one year warranty period was up.
Is this the kind of problem diva users have that goes away once they switch to a mooncup?
I'm wondering if I should get a size 2 diva again, or just switch to a mooncup.
All this just one month after the one year warranty is up. It's like some kind of cosmic joke.

Has anybody else ever had this happen? If so, what did you do to solve the problem?

Thanks to everyone who replied.
It's working better again today (go figure). Only minor leaking, and that's because I was squatting down and moving around a lot, as my dog had puppies today.
I figured out that the cup is really temperamental. I have to get the suction just right or it leaks. Just a tiny bit too much or too little, and it leaks. :/
