Tip 1: Wear a panty liner until you feel comfortable
Until you feel 100% comfortable with your menstrual cup, you might want to wear a panty liner so you don’t have to worry about leaking.
Tip 2: Try to locate your cervix
We all have differently positioned cervixes and the cup should be placed below the cervix, if not, it will most likely leak. Try to locate your cervix with your finger, you should feel for a slightly firmer area of tissue and position your cup under it.
Tip 3: Trim the stem of the cup
If you can feel the stem and find it uncomfortable after a couple of tries, you can cut it shorter. However, do not trim the stem while the menstrual cup is inserted!
Tip 4: Practice before your period
No one expects you to be an instant menstrual cup pro, so we recommend you practice inserting and removing your cup before you get your period.
Tip 5: Use lubrication
You can use water or a water-based lubricant to make insertion easier.
