How does a menstrual cup stay in position?
Thanks to period tech there is now 1000 of styles and shapes, so no matter what “shape” you are there is a Menstrual Cup out there for you.
A menstrual cup is not a complicated contraption, or gimmick it’s essentially a reusable tampon.
Good quality menstrual cups are either made from medical grade silicone or medical grade TPE. It’s so important to insure you are using a cup made from certified medical grade silicones, as many brands will simply use food-grade silicone. Medical grade silicone or TPE is used because it is pliable and keeps it shape.
The anatomy of a Pelvi Menstrual Cup.
The Pelvi Menstrual Cup sits comfortably inside the vaginal canal, and it's 4 suction holes form a seal between the outside of the cup and the walls of the vagina. When inserted correctly the cup naturally stays in place, you will not even notice it is there.
A menstrual cup can not disappear or get stuck inside the vaginal canal. If the menstrual cup has worked its way higher inside the vagina, it’s important to relax the muscles as tensing up will only make removing it more challenging. Try squatting and use your abdominal muscles to push the cup downwards until you can reach the stem of the cup. Pull down gently on the stem and pinch the base of the cup to release the suction, and gently ease it out.
