- Wash your hands thoroughly.
- Tightly fold the menstrual cup in half, or use the punch fold in video, holding it in one hand with the rim facing up.
- Insert the cup, rim up, into your vagina towards your back like you would a tampon without an applicator.
- It should sit a few inches below your cervix.
- Once the cup is in your vagina, rotate it.
- It will spring open to create an airtight seal that stops leaks.
You shouldn’t feel your menstrual cup if you’ve inserted the cup correctly. You should also be able to move, jump, sit, stand, and do other everyday activities without your cup falling out. If you’re having trouble putting in your cup, speak with your doctor.
