Lily Cups are ultra-soft, reusable menstrual cups made of medical-grade silicone. Featuring all the benefits of a menstrual cup in a design that’s petite and easy to use, Lily Cup Compact makes periods a breeze from start to finish. This is a collapsible cup that folds flat and fits into a small protective case. Toss it in your backpack, purse or pocket, and you're good to go. Then, when you need it, it can be popped open for up to 12 hours of non-stop protection.
To insert a menstrual cup, start out by finding a comfy position with your legs apart -- sitting on the toilet or standing with one leg propped up on the toilet or bathtub ledge works quite well!
Smoosh the lid of the cup together, and then fold the cup to make it compact. Insert the cup into the vaginal canal, while continuing to hold the edges together. Using a little lube to help it slide in makes this much more comfortable!
Once you’ve pushed it in as far as it will go, release the edges so that the cup opens all the way and suctions on to the walls of the vagina, around the cervix. If this doesn’t happen immediately, try twisting the cup while bearing down. Make sure the cup is covering your cervix by swirling a finger around the sides -- you can even it a gentle tug to make sure it’s created a seal. If it has, you should be able to feel a little bit of resistance!
