Why hiccup menstrual cup?
While the flow is usually the most important factor in helping you decide which cup is for you, we recommend the following:
Teens – If you’re starting out, we recommend doing so with minor cup.
Sexually Inactive – If you’re not sexually active, your muscles are likely to be tighter. We recommend going with minor hiccup in this case.
How to Measure your Cervix
Wash your hands and insert 1-2 fingers into your vaginal canal. Feel around for your cervix. It should feel soft yet firm with a roundish shape. It will have a small hole in the center. Touch the tip of your cervix and check how far inside your hand is.
If you’re in till your first knuckle, you have a low cervix.
If you’re in till the middle of your finger, you have a medium cervix.
If almost your entire finger is inside, you have a high cervix.
For a low to medium cervix, we recommend going with minor hiccup while for those with a medium to high cervix, we recommend going with major hiccup.
Wash & care
At the beginning of each cycle sterilize the cup for 3-5 minutes in boiling water. If you’re using it for the first time, you can boil it for up to 7 minutes. Use any kitchen pan to boil. Make sure that the cup does not touch the bottom of the pan. Use a pair of tongs or spoon to help remove the cup from the water. Let the cup cool down before using. You can use a cup for a stretch of upto 12 hours at a time. After that, when you remove your cup you can rinse it with mild soap and running water. Then reinsert. At the end of each cycle, you can boil the cup and store it in the jute bag provided and then simply rinse and use your next cycle.
