DivaCup after Pregnancy?

I had a baby and my DivaCup no longer seems to be working. Did that happen to you? What are my options?

I had a baby (c-section, minor dilation beforehand but nothing major), and after I gave up exclusively breastfeeding, my period came back (boo). I pulled out my trusty DivaCup for my first cycle and...it leaked. A lot. So I moved up to the size 2 for cycle 2. Same deal! What is going on? Is this a temporary setback or will I forever be unable to use my much-loved DivaCup? Did you find you were unable to use a menstrual cup after you had a baby? Did you switch brands and find one worked better than another? Please advise. The idea of going back to tampons afters years with a cup depresses me, but I refuse to wear the cup if it's going to constantly leak on me (even if I always wore a pad; the sensation itself is uncomfortable).
