Boil the menstrual cup for 5-10 minutes and wash your hands before use!
Create a U shape by pressing the sides of the cup between your fingers.
Get in a sitting or squatting position and push the curved edge of the folded cup into your vagina. Push until you reach the cervix.
Check if it was properly placed by trying to turn the cup slightly. If it doesn’t move, you’re good to go! If it does, remove and try again.
A menstrual cup might be exactly what you need for your TTC plans. Some experts recommend it as a way to ensure the sperm stays in place. There are two ways you can implement this. One is to use the “pull out” method, deposit the sperm into the cup, and insert it. Another way is to immediately insert the menstrual cup into the vagina after you have sex. This ensures the sperm stays at the entrance of the uterus.
