HOW TO USE A MENSTRUAL CUP
Every beginning can be difficult – including trying a menstrual cup for the first time. However we can assure you, there’s nothing to fear.
Here are five simple steps on how to use a menstrual cup:
1. Sterilize the cup
Before the first use, sterilize the cup in boiling water for 3-5 minutes.
2. Fold and insert the folded cup
There are many ways to fold the cup, we recommend the Punch Down fold and the C-fold. Once the entire cup is inside of you, simply let it pop open.
3. Check if the cup is unfolded
Reach in and feel around the base of the cup – it should feel round or oval and not have any noticeable folds. If you feel any dents, gently grip the base of the cup (not the stem) and rotate it to make it unfold.
4. Remove the menstrual cup
Pull slightly on the stem while using your abdominal muscles to push the OrganiCup downwards until you can reach the base.
Give the base of the cup a pinch to release the suction and ease it out. Avoid removing your menstrual cup by pulling the stem as this might cause discomfort.
5. Empty and re-insert.
It may take you a few days or a few periods to become comfortable with the cup. Experiment with different folding and insertion techniques – and don’t worry, you’ll soon become a dedicated cup convert!
