SIZE SMALL (S)
With its 43mm diameter is recommended for women up to the age of 25 years.
How to use the Cup:
Sterilization: At the beginning of each menstrual cycle, always boil the device in bubbling-hot boiling water for 5-7 minutes and then use. After the cycle is complete, please sterilize once again as above and keep inside the carry pouch.
The cup is inserted into your vagina where it collects menstrual flow. Once in 12 hours or as and when you feel it, you remove it, empty the cup, wash it out, and then reinsert it. While those are the basics, there are more details of how to use menstrual cup to help you be prepared for your first-time use.
Step 1: Fold and Hold
Begin by washing your hands. Then take the cup’s walls together and fold it into the shape of a C. For most women, this C shape will make the menstrual cup easiest to insert. Keep in mind, however, that every woman has a slightly different anatomy so there may be a different fold shape that is more comfortable for you.
Step 2: Keep the Pelvic Muscles Relaxed
If your pelvic muscles are tensed, you will find it more challenging to insert the cup, or it may even be painful. It can sometimes help to practice kegel exercises as this lets you relax your pelvic muscles on command, such as when you are inserting the cup. Be patient and remember that the cup will be hardest to insert the first time. If you become frustrated, take a break and then try again.
Step 3: Get Comfortable
For how to use a menstrual cup, you will want to find a comfortable position. Some women prefer to insert their menstrual cup while sitting on the toilet. Others prefer squatting in the shower or tub. You can also try standing with a leg resting up on the tub or toilet edge, squatting with your back against the wall, or lying down with your legs apart and knees up.
Step 4: Find the cervix
Next you will want to puta finger inside the vagina to feel around for your cervix. This will feel like your nose’s tip and it is a squishy, small nub that has an indentation right in the middle. It helps to find the cervix as this is where you want to aim your cup. This prevents you from accidentally poking your cervix using the cup or using up space within the cup by placing it on your cervix. If you don’t find your cervix, don’t worry. It is probably high and unlikely to cause issues. You can also skip this step and simply aim the menstrual cup towards your small of the back.
Step 5: Insert the Cup
Now it is time to truly learn how to use menstrual cup. You want to fold it and hold it in one hand with the stem facing downward. Spread your labia, using your other hand to find the vaginal opening. Push your cup in at a 45-degree angle in the direction of the pubic bone as opposed to straight up. The cup will pop open and you should keep pushing it until you are comfortable. The cup’s base shouldn’t clear the vaginal opening.
Step 6: Make Sure the Cup Is Open Completely
If you felt or heard a pop, this indicates that the cup has opened completely. If you haven’t noticed either of these things, you will need to reach up and feel the cup’s base, making sure it is oval or round. You can open the cup manually with your hand if necessary or do so by rotating the cup in a circle, doing Kegel exercises or pressing a portion of your vaginal wall outwards using a finger. Always make sure the vacuum is in place as that holds the cup.
Step 7: Use No More Than 12 Hours
A great thing about the menstrual cup is that you can use it for twelve hours. Most women only need to empty their cup once in the morning and once again at night, but this varies by person. You may need to empty it more often depending on your flow.
Step 8: Remove Your Cup
To remove the menstrual cup, start by bearing down using your muscles as this pushes the cup further down. Keep up this action until you can reach the stem, at which point you can wiggle it back and forth as well as down. When you can, grab the base of the cup as opposed to the stem and keep pulling it out. Many women find it easier to break the vacuum and get the cup out by pinching the vase. Always remove the menstrual cup in an upright position as this reduces spillage. If you can’t comfortably remove the cup because the rim is too wide, you can fold the cup before removing it. Removing the cup over a toilet is ideal as you can let its contents spill from the back.

- If you have or are experiencing any gynecological problems, please discontinue using your cup and consult a physician. If you are experiencing any pain or discomfort while wearing your cup, discontinue use and consult your physician.
- While inserting the menstrual cup, ensure that the upper silicone ring has been opened fully and the cup is fixed in the right position at the lower part of the vagina. Pull it back outwards a little or turn it around. If the vacuum starts to work properly, it will be harder to pull.
- The cup shall not be placed too high because in case of accidental contact with the cervical part, vacuum effect will not work effectively and may cause leakage of menstrual fluid outside the cup causing unwanted embarrassment and attention. The mouth of the cup shall be right under the cervical part to collect the menstrual flow without spills.
- If the silicone stem of the cup sticks out causing discomfiture, shear them to the length which is suitable to your comfort, which will make you unconscious of the presence of the menstrual cup.
