How it works
Before using your Sati Cup for the first time you should sterilize the cup in boiling water for 3-5 minutes. Remember not to let the cup touch the bottom of the pot.
Inserting a menstrual cup is similar to inserting a tampon. First, wash your hands. Then, fold your menstrual cup to make it smaller. (C-fold or Punch down fold )
While squatting or standing with one foot on the floor and the other on a toilet or bathtub, relax your body and slowly push the folded cup into your vagina. This should be done at about a 45-degree angle as your vagina is angled and not straight-up inside your body. The cup should pop open and unfold inside your vagina, which creates a light seal against the vaginal walls. Make sure the cup is unfolded so blood does not seep out around it.
To check if your Sati Cup is open, run your finger around the middle part of the cup. If you feel an indent, use your thumb or your index finger to nudge upward the indented part so that the cup will be fully open. If correctly inserted, the cup should not leak or cause any discomfort, as with a tampon. Push it in until you're comfortable; this depends on how low your cervix is, which varies from person to person. Some users chose to wear a liner as a safeguard while they get used to cup life.
Getting the hang of using a menstrual cup can take a while. Give yourself at least 3 cycles to learn the ropes to work out what works best for you.
The cup can be worn low in the vagina. During the course of the day, the cup may migrate upwards and sit against the cervix. The cup can be worn up to 12 hours, depending on your flow.
The stem on the bottom of the cup can be used to find your cup when you want to remove it. (The stem can be trimmed down to whatever length you're most comfortable with.) Simply pulling on the stem is not recommended to remove the cup, as pulling it down will create suction. Reach up to the stem of the cup in order to find the base. Using your index finger and thumb, pinch the base to release the seal. Gently and slowly ease the cup out of your vagina. Empty the contents of the cup, rinse/wipe and reinsert.
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR MENSTRUAL CUP?
When your period is over, wash and brush your cup thoroughly with mild soap and rinse, then put in boiling water 3-5 minutes to sterilize or use your sterilizer cup and put hot water for 3-5minutes. Dry the cup with a clean towel then store it in its bag for proper ventilation. Take good care of your cup, and it can last you for years!
