5 Things to Take Note!

It’s extremely important to sterilize your cup in order to maintain the longevity of it and keep your vagina healthy. It helps prevent the occurrence of bacteria, odours, and stains on your cup. 

WHEN should you sterilize your cup?

  1. Before you first starting to use it 
  2. Every end of your period cycle

HOW do you sterilize your cup? There are 2 ways.

  1. Boil your period cup in a pot for 5 – 8 minutes, air dry it and it is ready for use
    Note: Don’t forget to clean your pot after sterilization and avoid using the same pot that you use for food to sterilize your period cup
  2. To make the sterilization easier, you can microwave the cup in a Bloody Boo Sterilizing Container for 2 – 3 minutes. Refer here for the detailed steps

There is no issue for the Bloody Boo Period Cup to stay in your vagina up to 12 hours, however if you have heavy flow, empty down your cup ahead of schedule to avoid surprise leaks.

Make sure to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before insertion and removal to prevent your vagina from exposing to germs and bacteria.

Rotate the cup and lightly pull the stem. If you feel resistance, the cup is fully opened, and the suction seal is deployed, it means the cup has been inserted correctly.

Wet the outer area of the cup with water (or any water-based lubricant) before insertion to ease the insertion. Wetting the lower part of the cup near the stem is sufficient.

Insertion & Removal

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly (with soap if possible) before insertion to make sure your hands are clean and free from bacteria
