Sierras Menstrual Cup | Are you ready to make the switch to an eco-friendly period management?

Periods are part of a female body's reproductive health. We were taught to use pads when we first get our periods but with the continuous innovative approach to be eco-friendly, menstrual cups has been introduced.

A menstrual cup is a revolutionary alternative to traditional feminine hygiene products such as pads and tampons, and has been gaining widespread recognition and popularity in recent years. It offers a sustainable, cost-effective, and eco-friendly way to manage menstruation. This flexible bell-shaped device is designed to collect rather than absorb menstrual flow.

As an empowering choice for individuals seeking comfort, convenience, and reduced environmental impact, the menstrual cup has transformed the way people experience their periods.

Using a menstrual cup for the first time can be a little intimidating, but with the right information and some practice, it can be a convenient and eco-friendly way to manage your menstrual flow. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to use a menstrual cup for the first time:

Wash Your Hands: Always start by washing your hands thoroughly with soap and water to ensure cleanliness.

Folding the Cup: There are several ways to fold the cup for insertion. Two common folds are the "C-fold" (folding the cup in half to form a C shape) and the "punch-down fold" (pressing one side of the rim down into the cup). Experiment with different folds to see which is most comfortable for you.

Insertion: Find a comfortable position for insertion, like squatting, sitting on the toilet, or standing with one leg raised. Hold the folded cup with one hand and use your other hand to part your labia. Insert the cup into your vaginal canal, angling it towards your tailbone, not straight up. The cup should sit lower in your vagina than a tampon.

Ensuring Proper Seal: Once the cup is inside, it should pop open and create a seal against the vaginal wall. You may hear or feel a slight "pop" when this happens. To check if it's sealed properly, run your finger around the cup to make sure it's fully expanded. If it hasn't opened completely, you can gently rotate it or give it a slight tug to help it open up.

Wear for Up to 12 Hours: Once the cup is in place and comfortable, you can wear it for up to 12 hours. You may need to empty it more often on heavier flow days.

Removal: When it's time to remove the cup, wash your hands and find a comfortable position. Gently grip the base of the cup (not the stem) and pinch it to break the seal. Slowly and carefully pull the cup out. Empty the contents into the toilet, wash the cup, and reinsert it if needed.

Cleaning: Between cycles, sterilize the cup by boiling it in water for a few minutes. During your period, rinse the cup with warm water and mild, unscented soap each time you empty it.

Practice and Patience: Using a menstrual cup might take some practice. Don't get discouraged if it doesn't work perfectly the first time. It can take a few cycles to become completely comfortable with it.

Comfort and Fit: If you experience discomfort, leakage, or other issues, it might be due to the cup's size or placement. You can try a different size or adjust the positioning.

  • For a first-timer, use lubricants to properly insert the cup
  • It may feel uncomfortable during insertion but practice makes perfect
  • The cup isn't even full even after 8-12hrs of usage
  • I got no leaks, I think I inserted properly!
  • It will take time to get used to it, but I'm definitely trying to use this again on my next period
  • Very easy to clean and sterilize

Overall, I recommend that you give it a try!
