As with the use of any internal product, the hymen will stretch a little to accommodate the product. The hymen also stretches over time as women engage in physically-taxing activities.
The cervix is a tissue connecting the end of the uterus to the vagina. Menstrual blood exits the uterus from the opening of the cervix. The cervix height varies from one individual to the other. It also changes its position depending on the different phases in the menstrual cycle.
It is advisable to measure your cervix before buying a cup, and select the right size. Check this link to understand JuJu cup sizes.
To measure your cervix, insert a clean, long finger inside your vagina and look for a hard nub. That should be your cervix. It is advisable to measure your cervix while on your period.
We recommend you first try the cup while on your period as your vagina is naturally lubricated when you are menstruating.
Once you wear your cup, run a finger along the bottom of the cup to ensure that it is open.
Cups usually leak if they are positioned away from the cervix, or if the cup hasn’t opened. While inserting the cup, make sure you aim it towards the cervix. Also, check if the cup is open after you insert it.
Make sure you are calm and let the vaginal muscles relax.
Squat or find a comfortable position to remove the cup.
Try to get hold of the bottom of the cup and push at the same time.
Though you may bleed lightly on your last days, you should empty and reinsert your cup every 8 hours regardless of the amount of flow.
Do not wash the cup with Dettol/soap/any harsh cleaning agents. Rinsing with hot water should suffice. You can use mild, fragrance free and oil-free soaps.
The position of the cup may be putting pressure on your urinary bladder.
Try and reposition the cup by changing the angle, or moving it to the side.
You don’t have to remove the cup each time you are using the bathroom.
Women who have IUDs inserted can use the cup. But you have to be careful with the thread. Ensure that you don’t pull it out while you are taking the cup out.
Menstrual cups are internal products and are therefore not recommended for post-partum bleeding. However, you can use a cup for the first period after birth. You can use cloth pads/period panties for this purpose.

Wash the cup with room temperature water every time youremove and re-insert the cup.

Clean the air-holes by forcingwater through them.

At the end of every cycle, sterilize the cup by boiling it in hotwater for 5-6 minutes.

Sun-dry the cup every once in awhile.

Store the cup in a clean and drycloth bag.

Do not store it in a plastic/airtight box.
