How to Fold a Menstrual Cup: The Roll Up 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 Roll Up menstrual cup fold! Let’s investigate the pro’s and con’s of this fold.


The pros of using the Roll Up fold include:

  • Pops open easily – Similar to the C/U fold, the Roll Up 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.


The cons of using the Roll Up fold include:

  • Not good for beginners – this fold isn’t as compact as other folds, and may be more difficult to insert for a first time user.
  • The mouth of the cup does not become as narrow as other folds – some women may not find this fold comfortable.
  • Possible sealing issues – some women report this fold may not fully open up, and could cause leaking issues.
