Where do I position my MCUK?

The MCUK menstrual cup is designed to form a light seal with the walls of the vagina and not sit over the cervix itself.

It needs to be placed as low as it will comfortably sit in the vagina. If any of the stem is sticking out of the vagina or causing any irritation or discomfort, you will need to gradually trim it (see Should I trim the stem of my MCUK? for more information).

It is important that there is space between the circular rim (top) of the MCUK and the cervix.

The menstrual blood will flow down from the cervix and be collected by the MCUK.

If you have accidentally placed it too high, if it rises up by itself, or if you have trouble removing it, head to our Troubleshooting section.
