How to insert a menstrual cup? 

First, find a spot where you can relax. That might be a washroom, bathtub, shower, or bed. It’s up to you! The most important thing is that you feel comfortable and at ease.

To insert your menstrual cup, part your labia and gently insert it funnel side up. Once you feel your vagina opening, insert the cup and rotate it a few times until you’ve found a comfortable position. Slowly release it so it can gently unfold.

If you’re having a hard time unfolding it, put it at the entrance of your vagina first. Then help it unfold by sliding your fingers up to the rim to let air in. Now you can twist it in so it sits in a comfortable spot.

Positioning your menstrual cup

First, cups sit lower than tampons. Yours might move a little as it finds its own position in relation to the contours of your body. To avoid leaks, it’s important for the cup to be located below or around your cervix. To avoid discomfort, your cup’s little stem shouldn’t protrude or sit right at the entrance of your vagina.

Removing your menstrual cup

Once they’re in place, menstrual cups produce a seal, so you should avoid pulling directly on the stem because that’ll create a suction effect. Instead, while squatting, start pushing with your pelvic muscles. Your cup will gradually come down, and guiding it the rest of the way out will be a lot easier.

But you’ll still need to break the seal. You’ve got 3 steps:

1. Pinch the bottom of the cup.
2. Gently pull the stem while wiggling it from side to side.
3. Insert a finger until you feel the cup’s rim, then create space between the cup and your vaginal wall.

Menstrual cup maintenance and hygiene tip

To use your menstrual cup properly and effectively, wash your hands before and after you handle it. When your cup is full, you’ll need to remove and empty it. Before reinserting it, you’ll have to wash it thoroughly.

You want to empty your menstrual cup at least 2 or 3 times a day. Between periods, you’ll need to remember to boil your cup so it’s sterilized for next time. 

Keep your eyes, fingers, and nose on guard for signs of deterioration, like a sticky or powdered film, discoloration, or odors.
