How can I stop my MCUK from rising up?

First, make sure that your menstrual cup is positioned as low as it will comfortably sit. To read more about where the MCUK should sit, go to our FAQ on Positioning

Try improving the seal by:

• Tensing around your menstrual cup with your vaginal muscles a few times
• Running your finger along the rim when inserted, checking that it’s fully open
• Twisting the menstrual cup a few times
• Experimenting with folding methods
