Lalicup Menstrual cup insertion methods
When inserting the menstrual cup into the vagina, you need to fold it. There are several ways you could do this including the C- fold or the heart fold, the 7-fold or the triangle fold and the push down fold that is also called the shell fold. You start with the C-fold, graduate to the shell fold if it does not work and use the 7 fold as a last resort. When inserting through the 7 fold menstrual cup insertion method, it is good to know that you may need to repeat it several times given that the cup may fail to unfold properly once inserted. But what do these methods involve?
The C-fold requires that you hold the menstrual cup with your hands- both of them- then press it in the middle using your thumbs which flattens it. Then, you fold it vertically with the help of your middle finger such that the rim forms the letter C from the front. The shell fold requires that you hold the cup in one hand then using the fore finger from your other hand, press on the outer area of the base and push it towards the rim. You then use the hand that is holding the cup to press its sides together such that its size reduces. To insert the cup, you squeeze it firmly into the vagina using your thumb and forefinger.
The 7 fold menstrual cup insertion method utilizes both hands. The thumbs should be pressed against the front surface such that the cup flattens. You then fold the cup diagonally from the upper right side towards the lower left side. When done correctly, the rim resembles the number 7. When these methods are done well, they make it easier to insert the cup into the vagina and eliminate the possible occurrence of pain.
When it comes to inserting these cups, you cannot tell the method that works best for you without trying them out. You therefore need to experiment with the three methods and decide which method you prefer. Remember that your anatomy differs from the next woman and therefore what works for someone else may not necessarily work for you.
