Remember the first few times you used tampons? Well, Softcup is just as simple once you understand the steps. At first it may seem awkward to insert or remove Softcup. That's OK—most women experience that. Start your trial on a lighter flow day or at bedtime as you get to know how your body works with Softcup. You may want to wear a pantyliner or pad to protect against leakage your first few times until you feel comfortable placing Softcup. After a few uses you'll understand how often you need to change Softcup. Remember, Softcup must be changed after 12 hours.

Wash your hands and relax. Sit on the toilet with your knees apart.
Hold Softcup so the bottom of the cup hangs down. Squeeze the opposite sides of the rim together.
step 2
Keeping the rim pressed together, insert Softcup completely into your vagina. Use your finger to push Softcup down and back as far as it will go. It will slide into place under the cervix and behind the pubic bone.
When Softcup is inserted properly, you shouldn't feel it.
Step 3
If you feel something in the vaginal canal, the cup is probably not placed far enough inside you. Just remove and try again.
Step 4
To remove Softcup, we recommend sitting on the toilet with your knees apart. Insert your finger into the vagina. Feel your pubic bone—the Softcup rim will be right behind it. Hook your finger under the rim. If you have trouble hooking your finger, just bear or push down with your pelvic muscles. Slowly pull Softcup out of your body keeping it horizontal and level.
Place the used product inside the wrapper and throw it away. Do not flush Softcup.
