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 Labia menstrual cup fold! Let’s investigate the pro’s and con’s of this fold.
The pros of using the Labia fold include:
Small insertion point - The Labia Fold has a smaller insertion points which is a positive for many. While not as compact as the 7 fold or the punch-down fold, many report this fold is easier for them to insert over the C/U fold.
Pops open easily – Due to the unique shape of the fold, this fold definitely pops open easily. Once inserted, simply remove your fingers and the fold instantly pops open.
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.
