How to Fold a Menstrual Cup: The Origami Fold


Having difficulty getting your menstrual cup to open? Maybe the insertion process is too difficult? No problem! Today we have a new fold for you: The Origami menstrual cup fold! Let’s investigate the pro’s and con’s of this fold.


The pros of using the Origami fold include:

  • Small insertion point - Once folded inward, the Origami fold has a fairly small insertion point similar to the Punch Down fold.. 
  • Pops open easily – Similar to the Punch Down fold, the Origami fold pops open easily once inserted correctly. If not fully opened, just wiggle the cup around slightly until the seal is complete.
  • Fun to do – You may have fun just folding and manipulating the shape of your cup into the shape.


  • Not good for beginners - This fold can be tricky to get into shape, making it better for those more familiar with menstrual cups. For beginners, the C Fold and Punch Down Fold are often preferred.
  • Wider midpoint – Some women may find the middle of the cup larger and not as comfortable as the entry point.
  • Must have a good hold on the center - This fold has the ability to easily pop open (great once inserted). Make sure you have a good grip towards the center/base of the cup to keep the fold in place.
