As a fist time Menstrual Cup user, especially teenage females it is helpful to do research and discover, not only about your body, but also about healthy menstrual options that are available. Unlike a tampon a Menstrual Cup is bell shaped, but when you fold a cup to insert it’s nearly the same size as a tampon. The cup forms a gentle seal with your vaginal walls and any flow is contained in the Menstrual Cup.
Most cup’s like Pelvi Menstrual Cups come in 2 sizes: Size 1 (Small) and Size 2 (Large) The size is mostly related to childbirth history but many other factors such as personal anatomy, pelvic floor strength and age may influence the correct cup size selection.
To stop your Menstrual Cup from moving or leaking you need to insure that the Menstrual Cup is popped completely open once inside your body. While the cup is inserted you can run your fingers around the Menstrual Cup till it feels as if it’s completely open.
If your Menstrual Cup is no staying in the right position or it’s flattened you can wiggle the cup into the correct position. Simply grip the base of the cup or the steam and gently wiggle your menstrual cup back and forth until you find the right spot in your body.
Twisting / rotating your Menstrual Cup can be very helpful to get it in the correct position. Hold the base of your Menstrual Cup gently and rotate it slowly within your body. Some women are able to fully turn while others can only give the cup a slight twist.
