I've been using an organicup for a while now but I keep having problems.

I have a very low cervix, so I had to experiment with insertion methods until I got it to work. I use the 7-fold, I let it open pretty early and then I have to kinda push my cervix up so it goes inside the cup and that seems to work. The stem is almost always outside. After this I twirl it and check that it's fully opened. But there are always leaks even when the cup is only a quarter full.

It seems to me this is one of the smallest cups out there so I thought it would work for me. It also seems to be very soft, although this is the only cup I've ever used so I have nothing to compare it to.

Could you recommend some other cup brand or maybe another insertion method to fix this problem?

It sounds like you have what we call a "dangly" cervix. That is one that hangs into your cup and takes up room where flow should go. That is why your cup cannot get more than 1/4 full. A wider, higher capacity cup is usually recommended. Measure your Organicup and compare it to other cups. There are many size and capacity charts at the Community FAQ, and another set at http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ Or now that you know your cup's limitations, empty it more often.
