Switch To Menstrual Cups For A Comfortable & Tension-Free Period!

Menstrual cups can be used, emptied and reused every 10-12 hours making it travel-friendly and perfect for everyday work. Made from medical-grade silicone, these cups are completely free of harmful chemicals, safe to use and available in different sizes.

 How to Use It:

If you’re using a menstrual cup for the first time, try using it in the shower to ensure it slides in smoothly. As a rule of thumb, always wash your hands before you wear your cup. You can learn various folding methods online, so choose the one which you feel most comfortable with and fold the cup. Hold your folded cup firmly and guide it towards your vagina.

You can stand, squat (advised for beginners), sit, or raise one of your legs. Again, comfort is key and try the posture where you are most at ease and balanced, to create an opening for the cup. Guide the cup into your vagina, pointing it upwards toward the base of your spine.

Try to keep the cup folded until it is entirely inside of your vagina. Gently release the folded cup. It will pop open and create a sealing suction automatically, holding it in place. Run a finger along the base of the cup to ensure that it has opened completely. If you feel any folds, hold the base of the cup and gently rotate it until it opens completely and creates a sealing suction.
