What is a menstrual cup?

“A menstrual cup is a type of feminine hygiene product which is made of flexible medical grade silicone, worn inside the vagina during menstruation to catch menstrual fluid “ – via Wikipedia 

I would consider the cup like a best friend. Someone to catch you when things fall down. They may seem irritating at first but once you get used to them things are like a breeze. I started my cup journey in May so let’s say 3 months. My first cycle I immediately gave up and put a pad in but it continued to irritate me so I told myself I have to be dedicated to making this work. Eventually I got it and I was able to help friends when they came to me about how to put the cup in. Read below for my few menstrual cup tips. :)

Ten Things You Should Know:

01. You will want to give up asap & taking the cup out is a practice of patience.

02. It will feel stuck

But you MUST remember to relax, breath and squeeze.

03. You can insert it in multiple ways so if it hurts; you’re doing it wrong.

Keep trying again but make sure you’re relaxed.

04. It may feel like it’s sitting on your bladder

05. Be careful taking it out

Things can get super messy. Let’s leave it there.

06.  You should cut the tip thingy off

I once had someone ask why and the reason being is that you may feel it when you sit down and it’s not a good feeling.
