How to put in Menstrual Cup?
Follow these steps to put in the menstrual cup:
- First and foremost, wash your hands properly.
- Then, fold the menstrual cup in C-fold or punch down fold ( whichever is more convenient for you).
- Hold the folded sides firmly in between your thumb and forefinger such that the curved edge is facing away from your palm
- In a comfortable position (while standing or squatting), gently insert the cup into your vagina. Ensure that your vaginal muscles are relaxed. It should be placed at a few inches below the cervix.
- Rotate the cup once it is in your vagina so that it springs open and creates an airtight seal which would prevent leaks.
How to take a Menstrual Cup out?
To take a menstrual cup out:
- Ensure that your hands are clean.
- After placing your index finger and thumb into the vagina, pull the stem of the cup gently until you reach the base.
- Pinch the base of the cup lightly so as to release the seal. Then, pull it down for its removal.
- Once the cup is removed, empty its contents into the sink or toilet.
How to Clean a Menstrual Cup?
To clean the cup, you can sterilize it before and after every cycle. To sterilize, simply rinse it normally and then, place it in a pot of water and boil it. While you do that, see to it that it does not sink to the bottom (as it could melt if it comes in contact with the saucepan base). Boil for 2-10 minutes and then remove and allow it to dry.
During your cycle, after removing the cup, empty its contents, wash the cup under cold or warm water and then re-insert it. You may try using a scent free, water-based (oil-free) soap or one of the specially designed menstrual cup wipes or wash options.
Once it is dry, store the cup in the accompanying carry pouch.
