What is a Menstrual cup and How to Use it?

Menstrual Cup Usage

Over their regular course of lives, menstruating women generally use about 12,000 pads or tampons that take hundreds of years to decompose in the landfills. As compared to conventional sanitary pads or tampons, menstrual cups are a convenient, sustainable, and cost-effective alternative because they don’t pile up in the landfill waste; they are leak-proof and free of perfumes, chemicals, and toxins. An organic menstrual cup is made up of 100% skin-friendly medical-grade silicone. With a hygienic Shecup, you cannot just make your period more convenient, but you can also prevent TSS or bacterial infections in the delicate pH of your vagina. 


But, before we dive into the perks of an organic menstrual cup, let’s have a look at what a menstrual cup is and its usage. 


What is a menstrual cup?

Menstrual cups are flexible, funnel-shaped reusable period cups that are designed to collect menstrual blood inside the vagina. Unlike the absorbable period products, the organic menstrual cup generally collects menstrual flow rather than absorbing it. Just remove and rinse your Shecup after every 8-12 hours, or when leaking occurs, and you can avoid those uncertain, stubborn period stains. 


How to insert a menstrual cup?

To insert an organic menstrual cup in your vagina you can follow the below-mentioned steps:

  • Disinfect your hands or wash them thoroughly with water and soap.
  • Apply water at the rim of the menstrual cup to make the insertion process into your vagina easier.
  • Fold the menstrual cup depending on your convenience and ensure that the rim of the cup faces upward.
  • With the rim facing upwards, insert the reusable period cup into your vagina. Note that the Shecup must fit a few inches below your cervix.
  • Leave the fold and rotate the menstrual cup until it springs open and an airtight seal is created inside your vagina to stop the leakage. 

After you correctly insert the menstrual cup into your vagina, you will not even feel its presence. You can wear the cup for 8-12 hours without worrying about leakage and you can perform your routine activities easily without the menstrual cup slipping or falling out. 


How to remove a menstrual cup?

To remove the menstrual cup:

  • Wash your hands clean
  • Insert your thumb and index finger gently inside your vagina and slowly pull the stem of the menstrual cup.
  • Pinch the base to break the airtight seal and pull down the menstrual cup.
  • Once you remove the cup, empty the blood and wash the menstrual cup thoroughly with water.


Your organic menstrual cup will be ready for the second usage.
