There are various ways to insert a cup – try them out and see what works for you.
You may not be able to get the menstrual cup to fit right the first time, but with a bit of practice you will be able to insert the cup like an expert. Make sure you read the instructions and try to relax as much as possible!
Here’s a Lunette video demonstrating 3 different folding styles:
- C-fold/heart fold
- Punch down fold/shell fold
- 7-fold or triangle fold
Spinning the cup a quarter turn once it’s inserted may help to make sure that the seal is good.
You may find it easier to put your legs wide apart whilst siting on the loo (if you’re wearing tights or trousers, pull them right down to your ankles!)
