1. Before you start, you will want to gently wash your menstrual cup with warm water. You can also use an unscented soap to ensure that all dust and lint is removed. Be sure to rinse thoroughly. Hold your SckoonCup and ensure that the stem is pointing down. You can then fold your cup so that it is coming in on itself. View the illustration below for detail.
2. Your menstrual cup folds, allowing for easy and comfortable insertion. You will then want to squeeze your cup so that it is flat. Once flat, fold it in half and make a “U Shape” with the rim.
3. For the next step, you will want to either sit on the toilet or squat comfortably. With your free hand, gently separate your labia. While ensuring your cup is still folded, insert your SckoonCup with your dominant hand and aim it so that it is angled towards the tailbone. When inserting menstrual cups, correct angling will ensure comfort and proper function. Once the stem becomes even with the opening of the vagina, stop insertion. Menstruation cups should sit slightly lower than a tampon, but they should still extend beyond the pelvis bone.
4. To open your cup, simply rotate it. You can do this by firmly gripping the base and gently twisting. Some people find that the stems on their period cups for women are too long. To ensure maximum comfort, feel free to trim this portion. Simply use caution to ensure you do not damage the cup itself.
Although it may take a little bit of learning curve, a menstruation cup will be a very comfortable and healthier alternative to tampons. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Removal and Reuse of Your SckoonCup
One of the excellent benefits about reusable menstrual cups like SckoonCup is that you can continue using it cycle after cycle. Have you ever had to run to the store for tampons due to your period coming unexpectedly? No longer! Your menses cup is lightweight and very portable, making it ideal for women who are constantly on the go.
When removing your menstrual cup, start by washing your hands. Pinch the base of your cup with your index finger and thumb. You will want to use a gentle, but firm grip. Squeeze the bottom of the cup until you begin to feel a release of suction. Sometimes you will be able to hear this release as well. Keep in mind that your soft menstrual cup will be full, so remove it at an angle to prevent spilling. You will also want to avoid pulling directly on the cup’s stem. Once removed, dispose of the contents in the toilet and you have successfully used one of the most convenient tampon alternatives!
