Hi, I'm Maria, I heard you're having trouble inserting FLEX. Here are my best tips:
- Relax. If you're tense, you're muscles will constrict and make inserting FLEX tough. So, relax! You got this.
- Wash your hands, and then sit on the toilet. We'll get into different positions later, but if it's your first time, let's stick to the comfort of the throne in your our home.
- Try a different position. You don't have to be sitting on the toilet to insert FLEX. Lots of people have more success inserting FLEX when standing or putting one foot on the tub. Give it a try!
- Make sure you're pushing FLEX down, not up. When inserting FLEX, push the front edge down. We know this sounds counter-intuitive, but it works! Pushing FLEX down creates an angle and helps create a seal around the cervix.
