How to clean the UltuCup Model 1 Menstrual Cup:
Before insertion, thoroughly wash your hands and the UltuCup Model 1 Menstrual Cup for 60-90 seconds with warm water using a mild, unscented soap. Clean the UltuCup Model 1 Menstrual Cup a minimum of 2-3 times daily with mild, unscented soap and warm water. The tiny holes located below the rim must always be kept clean. To do this gently stretch each hole under warm running water to remove any debris. You may boil the cup after each cycle for 5-10 minutes in an open pot with plenty of water. Do not leave the boiling pot unattended. When cleaning your cup do not use harsh chemicals, scented soap, antibacterial soap, dish soap, hand sanitiser, rubbing alcohol, bleach, hydrogen peroxide, pre-moistened wipes, vinegar, oil-based soap, castile/peppermint soap, or tea tree oil as these may damage the silicone and cause irritation.
How to remove the UltuCup Model 1 Menstrual Cup:
The UltuCup Model 1 Menstrual Cup must be emptied and washed at least once every 12 hours. Some people may empty the UltuCup Model 1 Menstrual Cup more frequently during the day according to their flow. Before removal, thoroughly wash your hands as recommended. In a comfortable position, either standing, sitting on the toilet, or squatting with your buttocks resting on your heels, bear down in a series of gentle downward pushes with your abdominal/pelvic floor muscles (as if you have a bowel movement). Insert your thumb and index finger until you can reach the stem. Gently pull the stem horizontally until you can firmly pinch the base of the cup. Squeeze the cup gently to release the seal. As you remove it, angle it sideways while moving it from side to side holding it carefully to avoid spills. Empty the contents of the cup into the toilet. Wash the UltuCup Model 1 Menstrual Cup thoroughly as directed and re-insert.
Before insertion, thoroughly wash your hands and the menstrual cup for 60-90 seconds with warm water using a mild, unscented soap.
To insert the UltuCup fold the cup using one of the following options:
- U Fold: Press the sides of the cup together and then fold it in half again forming a tight "C" shape or "U" shape.
- Push Down Fold: Place a finger on the top rim of the cup and press it down into the centre of the inside base to form a triangle. This makes the top rim much smaller to insert.
With one hand, hold the folded sides firmly together with your thumb on one side and your four fingers on the other side just below the top rim of the cup. Get in a comfortable position: standing, sitting on the toilet or squatting. Relax your vaginal muscles. With your free hand, gently separate your labia. Insert the menstrual cup into the vagina aiming it horizontally towards your tailbone (located at the base of your spine). The menstrual cup will open before it is completely inserted. This is normal. Continue to insert towards the tailbone until the stem is even with the vaginal opening and does not protrude. Do not push the tip of the stem further than ½ inch (1.27 cm) into the vagina.
Please note: The UltuCup is not inserted like tampons, do not insert the cup too high. This may cause leaks and can also make removal more difficult.
Grip the base of the cup (not the stem) and turn the cup one full rotation (360 degrees) in either direction or insert the cup about half way, turn the cup one full rotation and then push it in the rest of the way. It must rotate easily as this ensures that it is fully open and that it is positioned horizontally towards your tailbone. You can also make sure the cup is completely open by inserting a finger into the vagina and gently pressing on one side of the vaginal wall to create space for the cup to open fully. And while you most likely won’t mind the stem, you can trim it if you’d like. Do not alter the stem until you are positive that you will not need it. Don’t trim the stem any shorter than ¼ inch. Never trim the stem while wearing the cup. Cutting the stem completely will make removal more difficult.
