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 . The base of the cup is pinched to release the seal, and by gently pulling on the stem in a zig-zag movements , the cup can be carefully pulled down far enough that it just comes into reach of a finger and removed. After emptying, a menstrual cup should be rinsed or wiped and reinserted. Menstrual cup needs to be emptied and washed at least twice a day i.e. at least every every 4 to 8 hours.
