How to use menstrual cup

Menstrual cup is a whole new experience to many of us. so it is not surprised to have frustration. We hope the tips below can offer you a little help.


  1. Boil your cup for 3-5 minutes before your first use in each period for sanitization(soaking in hot water does not give any help).
  2. Remove and clean your cup with clean water(boiled water would be better) at least every 6-8 hours(must not leave it inside for over 12 consecutive hours.) Insert it for continuous use after removing all the menses and discharges.
  3. Wash your cup with neutral soap or menstrual cup wash regularly during your period can help ensuring a hygiene condition of your cup.
  4. Always clean your hand thoroughly before touching any menstrual products.
  5. Your position brings a significant effect to the success and comfort during insertion. Try different positions to find a way that suits you most.
  6. Push your cup towards your tailbone rather than straight upwards.
  7. Clean and sanitize your cup thoroughly after the end of your period. Put it in a breathable cloth bag and store it in a dry and cool place. Avoid storing it in a sealed container.

(*This is a general suggestion. Please refer to the user manual of your product for more accurate information.)


  1. Relax. Fold the cup rim and hold it. Gently spread your labia and put the cup near your vagina orifice. 
  2. Gently insert it into your vagina and push it towards your tailbone instead of vertically upwards until the rim is also sat inside.
  3. The cup should unfold and expand to make a seal against the vaginal wall when you release your finger. You may slightly pull the stem downward or run your finger round the rim to check if the cup is opened successfully. You may also grip the base of your cup and gently move it or rotate it until you can feel a small suction or resistance.
  4. You should not feel the stem or the cup body poking or rubbing you when it is sitting correctly. As the best sitting place varies among users, it is fine as long as you find it comfortable and cannot feel the cup.
  5. The body of the cup may bend or fold slightly inside your body because of pressure. It is fine if the rim has completely opened.


  1. Gently pinch the base of your cup to release the seal. Then, hold the base and pull your cup out slowly.
  2. Stems work only to assist the removal. DO NOT pull only the stem without breaking the seal to avoid spilling and hurting your vagina.
  3. Slightly pushing your cup out with your vaginal muscles might help if you find it difficult to pull your cup out
  4. Rinse your cup with clean water and reinsert it during your period. Sanitize it thoroughly and store it properly in a cool and dry place with a breathable cloth bag when your period ends.
