Help! My Menstrual Cup Hurts to Insert!

Uh oh, are you experiencing pain when using your menstrual cup? Don't worry! We've got a few tips to help you out!

Please Note: If you are experiencing extreme pain during insertion, please speak with your medical care provider.


There's tons of menstrual cup folds available that can help make the insertion process easier. Two of the more common ones include the Punch Down fold and the C fold. These folds may not work best for your body, so experiment. Other folds you can try include the Labia Fold, Origami Fold, and 7 Fold. 


You can try inserting using a safe, approved lubricant. Some lubricants, such as oil-based lubricant, can be damaging to the silicone, so we recommend using only water-based as a lubricant. Otherwise, the silicone may be compromised and may ruin the cup. 


Just like visiting the GYNO, make sure you relax during insertion. Tensing up may cause pain when inserting. Try a hot bath, relaxing tea, read a book, or another hobby to help calm your nerves.
