Rain water running behind gutters.

I have a flat rubber roof, I installed rain gutters and the water runs behind the gutters. Is there any way to stop this? There is no drip edge just a cap at the edge of roof.

A drip edge that is striped in with cover tape is what you need. the face of the drip edge will be inside the gutter. Of course a picture would help.
