From diva to lunette?

hi everyone!
I've had my Diva for over a year now, and I have never had a period without leakage. There is no common denominator between the times the cup works well and the times it will start leaking on me. It will always leak (always!) when it is more than half full, sometimes it will start leaking within 30 mins when it's still almost empty. I make sure it pops open, I trace the rim with my finger, I tug it, etc, the same ritual every time, still with different results. (And yes, I make sure the cervix is at the cups inside)

Anyway, this period I decided I'm not having this any more. I've been thinking of changing cups, from diva size 1 to ordinary lunette. Has anyone done this and had success? I coudn't find any post about it. I'm going to finland this weekend, so I thought it would be a good time to buy one.

The second question: my sister and her friends both have lunettes, and they've been working great for both of them. BUT, now the friends stem on her cup fell off! And when my sister checked her stem, it was partly off, too! They have only had them for a year or so! Has this ever happened to anybody else?? It makes me a little nervous about getting a lunette...
