How to use this cup?
You can find instructions in several languages (Catalan, French, English, Spanish) in PDF format HERE.
1. Preparation (cleaning)
Before using Fleurcup for the first time, sterilize it. To do this :
Check if the holes at the top of the cup are completely open. Wash your hands well with warm water and mild soap before using the cup to prevent the chance of any harmful substances entering the vagina. Appropriate hand hygiene is the key for the safe use of the cup.
2. Fold the cup into a smaller format for easier insertion
Fleurcup menstrual cup is made of soft medical-grade silicone that can be easily folded into a smaller format for easier insertion. Learn about the different techniques of menstrual cup folding in section „Folding methods“.
Before you use the cup for the first time or until you get completely used to it, you can use water or water-based lubricant for easier insertion. Get into a comfortable position. Most women find insertion the easiest while sitting on the toilet, squat or lifted one leg. The firm grip of the folded cup (with the ring on) placed in the lower part of the vagina, thereby releasing the vaginal muscles. A cup is placed a few centimetres below the cervix (more on the location of the cervix can be found by clicking on "More information"). Don’t worry, if your first insertions is a little clumsy – you will find the correct position in the vagina with a little practice and exploring your anatomy. After insertion, check if the cup is properly unfolded to effectively catch menstrual blood; we do this by gently touching the bottom of the cup along the rim with your finger. If you find the stem of the cup uncomfortable, you can easily cut it off, partly or completely. A stem is not a necessary feature and you will still be able to insert and remove your menstrual cup without it. However, some women claim that leaving a short part of the stem remaining makes removal easier. Properly inserted cup does not cause pain or a feeling of discomfort.
4. Remove the cup
Your Fleurcup should be emptied in relation to your flow and at least every 8 hours.
Women usually remove and empty menstrual cup 2- to 4-times a day (which is less frequent than with tampons). Again – don’t forget to wash your hands thoroughly with water and soap before you remove it. To remove the menstrual cup, find yourself a comfortable position (sitting, squatting or standing) to spread your legs. Relax your vaginal muscles and squeeze firmly the base of the cup with your thumb and forefinger, until you feel that the seal holding the cup securely in place is released. Releasing the seal can sometimes produce a distinctive sound. Fold the cup into a smaller format (similar to the insertion), and gently pull the cup out of the vagina. You can help yourself by holding the stem, however removing the cup by simply pulling on the stem is not recommended, as it creates suction that may result in spilling the content of the cup or even damage your vagina. With proper removal of the menstrual cup there will be no more blood stains than with the changing of tampons.
5. Empty and clean the cup and reuse it
C-fold or heart fold Hold the cup with both hands and press with your thumbs in the middle to flatten it. Using your middle finger, you fold the cup vertically so that the rim forms a letter „C“ or the shape of the heart when looking at front on.
This is the basic fold that most women use, and also the simplest. However, some women, especially younger girls, find this type of fold too thick, so the insertion requires a little more effort.
Shell fold (Push down)
Hold the cup in one hand and press on the outer part of the base with your other fore finger, pushing the base towards the rim. With the hand holding the cup, press the sides of the cup together to reduce the size. Squeeze the cup with your thumb and forefinger firmly as you insert it into the vagina.
This type of fold is most popular with younger girls, as the width of the cup is the smallest, allowing easy insertion. But due to unique anatomy of every woman, with this fold the cup may sometimes have difficulties to open inside the vagina. In that case you may need to repeat the process few times.
Triangle fold (7 fold)
Hold the menstrual cup using both hands with thumbs pressed against the front surface to flatten it. Diagonally fold the upper right side of the cup towards the lower left side. That way the shape of the rim resembles number 7.Try this fold if you have troubles inserting the cup using other folding methods. With this type of fold you may need to repeat the process several times, as the cup sometimes has difficulties to unfold inside the vagina.
Almos the same as Shell fold, but you push down at the lower 1/3 of the cup, and fold the two sides on each other, so you get a smaller surface.
