Removing your FLEX Cup can be little wonky at first - especially if you're new to menstrual cups. That said, you're not alone! We're here to help. In the meantime, here are some tips and tricks for perfecting removal of your FLEX Cup.
Before you even try your FLEX Cup, we suggest getting to know it by taking it apart and putting it together a few times. It's important to get a feel for how to put your cup together and how the pull string works. This will also give you a feel for how slow or fast you need to pull the ReleaseRing™.
Once you're ready to remove your cup, thoroughly wash your hands.
Next, we recommend sitting over a toilet. If this is your first time, you can also opt to remove your cup in the shower.
Hook your finger in the ReleaseRing™. *This is where it's good to have a feel for how fast/slow you need to pull the ReleaseRing™
As you pull the cup out, be sure to keep it slow and steady to ensure the menstrual fluid stays in the cup.
Empty the contents into the toilet and you're done!
Be sure to wash your cup before re-inserting and then you're all set. Go forth and live your best life!
