What is a menstrual cup?
A menstrual cup is a type of reusable feminine hygiene product. It’s a small, flexible funnel-shaped cup made of medical grade silicone that you insert into your vagina to collect period fluid.
How to Use
- Wash hands
Wash your hands.
Wash your Gynocup menstrual cup with GynoWash Cleanser and rinse it carefully.
- Fold + Hold
Get comfortable: you can insert the cup while sitting, standing or squatting. Spreading your legs will help with a successful and comfortable insertion. Relax.
Fold the cup in on itself to make flat, then in half to form a C shape.
Keep it rolled up and guide it rim first into the vagina. To check that the cup has fully opened, slide a clean finger up to the cup bottom and feel it - it should be round. Gynocup can be used anytime in your menstrual cycle, from heavy to light flow days.
- Wear + learn
Gynocup is emptied about 2–4 times a day, can be used for up to 12 hours, also overnight.
- Remove + empty
Wash your hands and relax your muscles. Grasp the bottom of the cup. To break seal, squeeze the bottom of the cup.
Be sure not to pull it out by holding the stem alone. Tip contents into the toilet. Rinse & Reuse.
- Clean + sanitize
Gynocup should be cleaned before and after your cycle, and after emptying. To avoid odor and discoloration, rinse first in cold water, and then wash with hot water and Gynowash Cleanser designed for silicone cups.
