New to Diva Cup having leaking problems

Hello ladies!

This is my first cycle using the Diva Cup (size 2 b/c I had 2 vaginal deliveries)  This is the second day of my cycle but it's done nothing but leak. I'm pretty sure it's in correctly. It doesn't hurt or bother me at all, it's open completely and spins very easily both directions. I let it open right inside the vagina before I push it in further, it's sitting low in the vagina but I've tried it higher as well, I've run my fingers around the top edge and my cervix is inside of it. It's laying horizontally to my tailbone (the stem is sticking forward rather then down).

Any advice or suggestions would be great!! Thank you!


Also wanted to add that I've tried all the different folds which doesn't really make a difference for me I just prefer the origami fold personally.

And also I have to take it out when I urinate b/c for one thing it's hard for me to pee with it in and for another it seems to shift or something and then when I'm done it's uncomfortable. Anyone else experience this?
