Fold a menstrual cup

  • Step 1: Before placing the menstrual cup. Wash your hands with warm water and soap first of all. You should find a comfortable position and relax and begin folding the menstrual cup.
  • Step 2: Moisten the rim of the menstrual cup with water or a non-petroleum-based personal lubricant. This is not necessary, but it helps with insertion. Press two sides of the cup together and then fold the cup in half. The cup should have a “U” shape at this point.
  • Step 3: Loosen up and gently separate the labia and gently insert the cup into the vagina. Aim toward the spine and location the cup where it feels one of the most comfy. To make sure that it can be secure, run your fingers around the edging to be sure it has suctioned towards the walls on the vagina.
  • Step 4: Remove the cup by inserting two fingers into the vagina. Gently squeeze the cup to remove the suction and gently pull the cup itself out. The contents of the cup should not spill if the cup is removed smoothly. Empty the contents into the toilet, rinse the cup with bottled water and re-insert if still menstruating.
