I Can Feel My Menstrual Cup!
Can you feel your menstrual when it’s inserted? Some women who use menstrual cups complain that they can feel the cup and believe that it’s not properly inserted. This is a common concern and definitely something worth investigating.
When worn properly, you should not be able to feel your menstrual cup while wearing it. Feeling the cup most likely means it is not seated properly inside your vagina and should be adjusted. Depending on how sensitive you are down there, you might need to try a few tricks in order to prevent any sensation while wearing your cup.
Preventing Sensation When Wearing a Menstrual Cup
Some women are more sensitive than others when it comes to their lady parts. If you’re extra sensitive you might be able to feel your menstrual cup moving about as you go about your daily activities. Here are some ways to limit the sensation and use your cup comfortably…
- When inserting your cup, try a fold that makes the insertion point smaller. Folds like the 7 Fold are great for this.
- After the cup has inserted and expanded, give it a tug to properly form a seal. The cup will often feel as though it’s gone in a bit deeper, and this is what we want.
- Try grabbing the cup at the base, pinching slightly, and turning the cup side to side gently. This may get the cup to seat more comfortably and reduce feeling as you move about.
- Try using some lube. Using lubrication might help the cup slide into position much easier and reduce sensation after insertion.
