YOUR SIMPLE GUIDE TO
MENSTRUAL CUPS & DISCS
The Saalt cup and disc are our favourites because of their size and firmness options, and their brand values!
HOW DO THEY WORK?
Pinch the middle into a figure 8 shape.
Insert like a tampon. Tuck it under pubic bone to stay in place.
Discs sit higher than a cup. Rather than sitting in the vaginal canal, they sit in the cervical fornix.
It will collect 3-6 tampons worth of blood!
When inserted correctly, it will be very comfortable.

NO... IT CAN'T GET LOST INSIDE YOU!

A TEEN SIZED CUP FOR BEGINERS!
Many teenagers use menstrual cups.
Some are able to make the cup work right away. Others need to practise for a few cycles (and that’s normal!)
It’s not an all-or-nothing experience. It’s okay to insert the cup one centimeters the first day, and call that a win! Try again when you’re feeling comfortable. Eventually you’ll be able to position the cup so that you can’t even feel it.
Teenagers can use a cup as soon as they feel comfortable and confident to try it out.
The Saalt teen cup is a smaller fit to make starting out with a cup easier!
