TIPS for easier insertion and removal
It is very important to relax when
inserting & removing your cup.
To aid insertion use some clean
water to wet the cup.
Depending on your flow, you might be able to wear MyownCup for up to 12 hours at a time. Remember to check and empty your cup at least twice a day.
It is recommended that you boil your MyownCup at the end of your menses and allow to air-dry before storing it in the cotton bag provided.
MyownCup does not need to be inserted as high as a tampon. Inserting the cup too high will make removal more difficult, and if the cup sits too high it can also be uncomfortable. Insert it, so that the stem of the cup is 1 -2cm inside the vagina. Trim stem if necessary.
Once inserted, if the cup is not fully
opened, you can gently pull on the
stem of the cup (as if to remove
it). This will allow the cup to move
lower in the vagina and air to flow
into the air holes helping it open completely. Do not pull to the point where it comes out of the vagina.
