1 Especially at the beginning, many women feel more confident using the menstrual cup together with a washable panty liner or a pair of menstrual panties.
2 Locate your cervix to figure out how high should the cup be positioned. Do it during the days of the menstrual flow because the cervix lowers. Put a finger in the vaginal canal and when you feel its end you are arrived to the cervix.
3 Do not push the menstrual cup too high, it should sit lower than tampons.
4 Always wash your hands and, if you can, keep your nails short not to risk to hurt yourself.
5 Do not cut the stem at once but wait until you have tried the cup. The stem never has to protrude out the vaginal canal.
