Tips for first time menstrual cup removal
Again - RELAX: Just as with insertion. Take your time!
Do NOT pull on the stem: The stem is used to gain access the bottom of the cup. If you pull on the stem, it will hurt! It will also create a mess since the cup won't be supported or controlled when it exits.
Squeeze bottom to release suction: This is the key - the bottom of the cup has ridges for gripping. Grip the bottom and tweek the cup to the side. The idea is to pull an edge away from the vaginal wall to release suction. You will hear it when this happens.
Rock gently: Once suction releases, gently rock the cup from side to side as you pull it out. This technique might not be necessary, but helps with removal if the cup is feeling stubborn to come out.
Folding Your Cup for Insertion
There are different ways you can get your folding groove on but all result in getting your cup snug and secure in the lower vaginal area and beyond the public bone (the sweet spot) where it can do its thing without you feeling it at all.
Once in place, the cup unfolds and gently springs into position where a seal is formed and keeps it held securely. Ready to rock!
Not sure which technique is best for you? Give yourself a little time to practice and try them out. Just like with tampons, the first time can take a little concentration but you’ll be a pro before you know it.
C-fold or Heart Fold
...is the basic fold that most women use. Once inserted give it a moment to spring into position (don’t worry, it always does!)
Punch Down Fold or Shell Fold
...is the fold most popular with younger cup users. It makes the cup smaller to insert, you just might need to give it an extra nudge and check that it has opened properly.
7 Fold or Triangle Fold
...is the simple fold that’s maybe easier to insert and a good option if the other methods don’t seem to suit you as much.
First, tip the blood into the toilet (or see our next tip >>>). We know many folks who will use their blood (diluted properly) to fertilize their plants! When at home, it is easy to keep a jar handy for this purpose. Rinse with cold water and then wash with warm water. Make sure that any cleaning solution you use doesn't contain any harsh chemicals, oils, perfumes or colorants that might leave residual on the cup and irritate the sensitive vagina.
When your period is over, disinfect your cup by either boiling your cup or using Lunette disinfecting Cupwipes. Lunette should be disinfected before and after your cycle.

Giving Back The Cup Project – Kenya
The Cup project started in 2015 in Kibera, one of the biggest slums in Nairobi, Kenya. The Cup educates girls, helps them with their changing bodies and provides them with a menstrual cup. The project consists of four one hour sessions where girls get sexual and health education, and they can ask whatever questions they have in mind. The biggest problem for school girls in Kenya is the lack of proper sanitary protection. Most girls miss one week per every month because of their periods, and eventually they will drop out from school earlier than boys. Together with The Cup Foundation, Lunette wants to change this! We want to keep girls in school and teach them how to understand and respect their own bodies better.
Positive Change Since the project, the lives of thousands of girls have been changed. After the program, the girls who participated in this project no longer miss school due to their periods. They also now have access to reliable information about issues related to sexual health and menstruation. Since working with The Cup, we have continued to see success and have cooperated further.
Yennenga progress –Burkina Faso Lunette started cooperating with the Swedish Yennenga Progress in 2014. Yennenga Progress launched a project to educate the school girls in Burkina Faso, and Lunette provided menstrual cups for everyone. Yennenga staff members educated the girls about cup use and cleaning, and made sure that their schools could offer them a hygienic place to empty and sanitize the cup. Due to the success Lunette and Yennenga Progress had, they have continued their cooperation ever since.
