A Simple Guide: How to Use a Menstrual Cup

Welcome to this straightforward guide on using a menstrual cup, brought to you by MomDaughts. If you're new to menstrual cups, don't worry – we've broken down the process into easy steps to make your experience smooth and comfortable.

What is a Menstrual Cup?

A menstrual cup is a flexible, bell-shaped device made from medical-grade silicone, latex, or elastomer. It is designed to be inserted into the vaginal canal during menstruation to collect menstrual fluid. Unlike tampons, which absorb the flow, menstrual cups collect the fluid, making them an excellent choice for those looking to minimize waste and reduce their environmental impact.

Step-by-Step Guide to Using a Menstrual Cup:

  1. Fold & Hold: Gently fold the cup using techniques like the "C-fold" or "Punch-down fold."
  2. Find Your Position: Stand, sit, or squat – whatever feels comfortable for you.
  3. Relax: Stay relaxed to ease insertion.
  4. Insert: Hold the folded cup and insert it into your vaginal canal at a slight angle.
  5. Release & Rotate: Allow the cup to open fully, and rotate it if needed for a secure seal.
  6. Check the Seal: Run your finger around the base to ensure the cup is properly sealed.
  7. Removal: Gently pinch the base to release the seal, then pull the cup out. Empty and rinse it before reinserting.
  8. Cleaning & Storage: Sterilize the cup at the end of your cycle by boiling it. Store it in a breathable pouch for next use.

Removing Your Menstrual Cup:

Removing a menstrual cup is just as simple as inserting it. Follow these steps to ensure a mess-free and comfortable experience:

  1. Wash Your Hands: Before removal, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water to maintain hygiene.
  2. Relax and Find a Comfortable Position: Just like when inserting the cup, find a comfortable position to relax your muscles.
  3. Pinch the Base: Gently pinch the base of the cup using your thumb and forefinger. This will break the seal and release the suction.
  4. Slowly Remove: With the seal broken, gently pull the cup down using the base. Tilt the cup slightly to prevent any spills as you remove it.
  5. Empty and Rinse: Empty the contents of the cup into the toilet and rinse it with water or a menstrual cup cleanser. You can also use a tissue or wipe to clean it if water isn't available.
  6. Reinsert or Store: Once cleaned, you can reinsert the cup using the same techniques as before. If you've finished your cycle, sterilize the cup by boiling it and store it in a breathable pouch for your next use.
