Other size options:

OrganiCup holds 3 tampons worth and can be worn for up to 12 hours. Forget about your period during the day. And night.
Half the population on Earth have periods for the majority of their lives. Yet no major period innovations have happened in over 75 years. Now consider the amount of waste created each month by disposable period products. Consider the chemicals they often contain, and that we put inside our bodies. Consider the young girls who stay away from school because they are ashamed of their periods.
We’re on a journey to change the way periods affect our lives, our bodies and our environment. We believe no one should be held back by their body. We believe no period products should contain harmful chemicals nor absorb natural bodily secretions, resulting in infections. Periods should not be the cause of major pollution. And they should never, ever be a source of shame.
Creating this world is what it’s about. And you — our users — are driving this change. Together we’re breaking down the barriers that menstruation has raised in the lives of dreamers and doers.

.Step 1 How to insert a menstrual cup
Wash: remember to wash your hands using clean water and a mild soap, such as OrganiWash, before inserting it.
Fold: there are many different folding methods so experiment and find the one that works for you.
Two of the most popular are: The Punch-Down Fold and the C-Fold. When you’re inserting your menstrual cup, you need to keep it folded until it is inside of your vagina.
Relax: it’s important to relax your muscles when inserting your menstrual cup, so find a comfortable position. You can lie down, squat, sit on the toilet or simply stand up. You’ll find the position that works best for you over time!
You might want to use water or a water-based lubricant to make insertion easier.
Insert and release: insert the folded menstrual cup and once the entire cup is inside of you, remove your fingers and let it open up.
Rotate: if you feel any dents or folds on the base of your menstrual cup and you’re not sure the suction seal has been created, then gently grip the base of the cup (not the stem) and rotate it to make it unfold.
Once your menstrual cup is in place, try to pull the stem a bit, if you feel resistance, the suction seal has been created and the cup has been inserted correctly!
In comparison with a tampon, the menstrual cup should be placed lower in the vaginal canal. The stem should be completely inside of you. However, we’re all built differently and if the stem pokes out and annoys you, you can trim it (not while inserted).
Step 2 Wear
For up to 12 hours. The cup can contain more liquid than 3 super tampons. Depending on how heavy your flow is, you may have to empty it more often than twice a day. It is recommended to empty your menstrual cup more often in the beginning to get to know the cup and your flow.
Step 3 How to remove a menstrual cup
Wash: again, start out by washing your hands with warm water and a mild soap.
Relax; find a comfortable position that works for you: lie down, squat, sit on the toilet or stand up. Being relaxed is essential, as removing your menstrual cup will be more difficult if you tense up.
Remove: when removing your menstrual cup, pull slightly on the stem until you can reach the base. Give the base of the cup a gentle pinch (or insert your index finger alongside it) to release the suction seal and ease it out. Avoid removing your menstrual cup by pulling the stem as this might cause discomfort.
Empty and wash: once you have removed your menstrual cup, empty the collected flow into the toilet or sink and rinse the cup with water (remember the air holes) and re-insert.
If you’re in a bathroom without access to clean water, you can use an OrganiWipe or toilet paper to clean your cup and rinse it with water at a later time.
Re-insert or store: when your menstrual cup is clean, re-insert it as outlined in Step 1.
However, if your period has ended: boil the cup for 3-5 minutes in water or simply use an OrganiWipe to disinfect it and store your cup in the OrganiCup cotton bag.
Once you get the hang of it, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
