Menstrual Cup Folding Techniques
Menstrual cups can look kind of big, rigid, and a little intimidating, but once you get the hang of it they’re the best. thing. ever! Seriously, I don’t know how I lived before I got myself a Diva Cup.
There are a lot of different fold techniques for inserting menstrual cups. Personally, I use a combination of the first two methods shown in the video. The trick is having the menstrual cup sort of pop open once you’ve inserted it, so it forms proper suction and there is no leakage.
The cup shown in the video is a small Lunette and as you can see it has a pretty long steam; you can easily cut the steam to a length that is more comfortable for you. I found the steam on my Diva Cup super annoying, so I practically cut the whole thing off. It really serves no purpose… unless you like to use it to pull the cup out, but I find that inserting two fingers at the base and gently pulling works just fine.
