Merula Menstrual Cup - XL
The Merula Cup is made out of 100% medical-grade silicone and produced in Germany. It is round, with a rigid edge and a thin, soft body.
The menstrual cup can be worn in a folded up state – only the edge needs to be open. The Merula Cup is made of certified medical grade silicone without chemical additives like plasticizers and free of animal-based ingredients. From weak to strong pelvic floor muscles: The Merula Cup stays where it belongs. As it can be worn in a folded up state and does not have to open completely, even strong pelvic floor muscles do not make it lose its shape.
Merula Cup – XL
It has a very large capacity (up to 50 ml / 1.691 fl oz) with a diameter of 46 mm / 1.811 in. Merula adapts perfectly to your body and is an ideal companion for very heavy bleeding.
The Merula Cup XL offers maximum capacity at a cup height of only 50 mm / 1.969 in., which is roughly equal to 2 average, conventional menstruation cups or 2.5 large tampons. As such, the Merula Cup XL fits women with a medium to high cervix. Thanks to its two rung ladder stem, it can be ideally adapted to your personal needs.
The Merula Cup XL is suitable for a medium to high cervix. Should your cervix be exceptionally low or if you feel your vagina is exceptionally “tight”, then the Merula Cup XL may be too large for you. In this case, we recommend the Merula Cup “one size” with a capacity of 38 ml / 1.285 fl oz.
Merula XL comers in 3 different colors - Strawberry, Midnight and the Fox.
Learning how to effortlessly insert and remove your menstrual cup can take some patience and practice.Wash your hands very well. A menstrual cup is first folded or pinched down and inserted into the vaginal cavity . There are various folding techniques for insertion; common folds include the punch-down fold, as well as the C- fold. Normally you don't need any lubrication for insertion. But if it is necessary for insertion, you can use distilled water, water base-lub or a little coconut oil on the rim. It will normally unfold automatically and create a light seal against the vaginal walls. In some cases it may need to twist the cup or flex the vaginal muscles to ensure the cup is fully open. If correctly inserted, the cup shouldn't leak or cause any discomfort. The stem should be completely inside the vagina.
Wash your hands and use the stem to guide your fingers to the base of the cup. Cup must not be pulled out by the stem .
