how to insert a menstrual cup
If you're not used to using a reusable menstrual cup starting out can be a little daunting. You may look at your period cup and think...how do I insert it in the right place? Or even have to make a few attempts and positions before it's sitting comfortably and without leaking.
With us all being different shapes and sizes there's no one size fits all approach to getting your cup to sit just right and there are lots of different ways you can insert your period cup to ensure it's comfortable for you and will be able to handle your flow without leaks.
Here we take you through how to use the &sisters Nudie menstrual cup step by step using two different techniques; the punch down fold and the 'C' or 'U' fold. Each has their different merits. In our experience the punch down is nice and compact for insertion but takes a little bit of manoeuvring to open up and the C fold can be a little more finicky in the insertion but has a nice easy open once inside. Of course, everyone is different so try both for yourself and see which is best for you.
