How to Use Me - Unicorn Cup Menstrual Cup
Insertion - OK, this is the part I'm sure most of you want to read about! We'll make it as straightforward as possible because . . . it is!
You'll discover the best method for you but I'd suggest starting out with the same position you use to insert a tampon.
Sitting over the toilet, take your Unicorn cup and fold using either the U-Fold or the Push Down fold (the one we prefer!). Relax and insert your Unicorn Cup as you would with a tampon, towards your tailbone, but NOT as far.
The Unicorn Cup Menstrual cup sits much lower down the vaginal canal than a tampon does. You'll be able to use your fingers to feel if the cup has fully opened, if you can feel a fold or a crease then you should remove (see below) and give it another go.
Once the cup has been inserted correctly, it will form a gentle seal meaning NO LEAKS!!
IF YOUR UNICORN CUP HAS BEEN INSERTED CORRECTLY, YOU WON'T EVEN FEEL IT!
Note: You can trim the stem to your preferred size, if required
Removal - Now this is important . . DON'T use the stem at the bottom to remove the cup. The stem should be used as a guide to feel where your Unicorn Cup is positioned.
Again, in the position you feel most comfortable in, bear down (like you would when passing urine) and you should feel the Unicorn Cup move down the vaginal canal. Feel for the stem and, at the bottom of the stem, squeeze the bottom of the cup gently to break the seal.
Again, bearing down, gently pull the Unicorn Cup out.
Now follow the 'How to Look After Me' guidelines.
