How to use menstrual disc

Menstrual discs are always considered to be an "advanced" menstrual product, but, as long as one have an understanding on how discs works, it would not be that difficult. 


  1. Boil your disc 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 disc 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 disc with neutral soap or menstrual disc 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 disc towards your tailbone rather than straight upwards.
  7. Menstrual discs sit deeper than tampons and menstrual cups in the vagina fornix, which is at the end of the vagina canal. Relax and try pushing it in.
  8. Some users love wearing a menstrual disc for period sex. Menstrual discs do not serve any purpose for contraception or sexually transmitted diseases (STD) prevention. It is also not true that you will not get pregnant during menstruation, so always remember to have safe sex.
  9. Clean and sanitize your disc 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 your disc into a figure “8” shape with the shorter edge and hold it. Then gently insert it into your vagina. If there are rings, grips or notches, they should be pointing down while you are inserting, and they should be sitting completely inside your vagina. Push the disc in all the way through, then tip the rim up to let it tuck behind your pubic bone. Slightly pushing your disc down against the vaginal wall instead of up could help your disc to go under the cervix and position better.
  2. You should not feel the stem or the disc body poking or rubbing you when it is sitting correctly.
  3. If your disc slips out or leaks, it might be sitting in the wrong position or has not been tucked beyond the public bone. Remove your disc and reinsert it to a deeper position.


  1. If there is no stem on your disc, use your finger to find the edge of your disc. Hook your finger under the rim or the notch and gently pull it out. You may also grip the rim with two fingers and pull it out. If there is a stem, just find the stem and gently pull the disc out with it.
  2. Slightly pushing your disc out with your vaginal muscles might help if you find it difficult to pull your disc out.
  3. It is possible to have menses spilling out during removal, so make sure you are able to clean up if needed. No worries. Practice helps!
  4. Vagina expands and elongates during arousal, so you may find it harder to reach your disc right after sex. Wait after 15-30 minutes for your vagina to recover before removing your disc.
  5. Rinse your disc 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.

You might need to spend a few periods to get used to your menstrual cup, and you might have difficulties and frustrations. Please accept these feelings as you may not have been taught or encouraged to explore your body in this way. Just relax and enjoy this adventure without stress. This is your precious body and it is worth spending time with it.

There is no product that is absolutely safe to use. Please always be aware of your own body condition while using any kind of menstrual products. If you experience a sudden change in smell or texture and colour of your discharge/cervical fluid, vaginal itch or irritation, high fever, diarrhea, vomiting, fainting, rash or any other kinds of symptoms during your period or shortly after, remove your menstrual cup and contact your doctor immediately as there mIght already be an infection such as TSS or other yeast infection.
