How do I remove my MCUK?

The MCUK menstrual cup needs to be taken out and emptied every 4-8 hours. First of all, wash your hands with warm water and soap and then rinse thoroughly with clean water.

In order to remove your cup you must first release the seal.

Choose a position that’s comfortable for you such as sitting on the toilet or squatting. Gently squeeze the base of the cup or insert a finger alongside the menstrual cup to release the seal. If you cannot reach the base of the cup either pull gently on the stem or ‘push down’ with your vaginal muscles until you can.

Holding the base of the cup slide your MCUK out.  Angling the MCUK slightly sideways to remove half of the rim before angling it the other way to release the other half will help your cup to remain upright with the menstrual fluid contained inside.
