How to use a menstrual cup

Being calm and confident makes it easier!

Welcome to the new world of periods

Every new beginning needs practice – including trying a Safecup for the first time. It takes women a couple of cycles to perfectly use the cup. Experiment with different folding and insertion methods and don’t give up on the first try. It gets better with every attempt. Once you learn it, you will never forget, right?

Before the first use

-Before using your Safecup for the first time you should sterilize the cup in boiling water for 3-5 minutes.
-Make sure the vessel is deep and there is enough water to float the cup.
-If you don't want to boil the cup in the kitchen, a more convenient way is to invest in a Safecup electric sterilizer that you can keep in your room or even your bathroom!

8-hours of protection

One of the benefits of using a menstrual cup is that you can use it for up to 10 hours at a time. We recommend women to empty their Cup every 4-8 hours depending on their flow. We recommend you empty your menstrual cup more often, in the beginning, to get to know the cup and your flow. Experiment with different folding and insertion methods and don’t worry, you’ll soon become a dedicated cup convert.

Where does it sit?

The cup is designed to open up inside your vagina and (painlessly) suction to your vaginal walls, which keeps it in place. It should sit below your cervix, the narrow neck-like passage below the uterus that blood flows through to get to your vagina.
