HOW TO USE 

DISINFECT

Before using LEONA CUP, disinfect the cup in boiling water for 3-5 mins.
You can use a pot or a microwave. If you use a pot do not let the cup touch the bottom since it may melt the cup.

HOW TO INSERT

01. Wash

Wash your hands before handling LEONA CUP. 

02. Relax

Find a time when you are relaxed without distractions. Relax your muscles and find a comfortable position.

03. Take your time

Since everyone has a different cervix shape, you might need to take a little time to practice getting used to LEONA CUP. There are different folding techniques. Therefore, try each of the techniques explained below to find the right one for you. We recommend the Punch-down Fold and the C-fold. 

04. Folding Techniques

C-fold

1. Flatten the cup
2. Fold the cup in half 
3. Pinch the cup to maintain a C-fold
4. Insert the cup with the rim facing you

 

7-fold

1. Flatten the cup
2. Pull one side of the rim down to the base of the cup
3. Pinch the base of the cup to maintain the 7-shape
4. Insert the cup with the rim facing you

 

Punch-down-fold

1. Push the rim into the body of the cup with your index finger
2. Pinch the cup to keep the rim inside
3. Insert the cup with the rim facing you

05. Insert & Release 

Insert LEONA CUP into your vagina by keeping it folded. Keep the cup upright towards your tailbone while inserting. When the cup is inside of you then let it pop open. Once the cup is correctly placed you will feel resistance if you pull the stem.

06. Stem

LEONA CUP will be positioned differently for everyone. For some, it will sit higher. The position of your cervix can change during your monthly cycle. Some LEONA CUP users do not have to trim the stem and can accommodate the entire length of the cup and stem. If your cervix is positioned lower and the stem sticks out of your vagina you can trim it accordingly.

* DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TRIM THE STEM WHILE WEARING THE CUP.

07. Empty

You can wear LEONA CUP for up to 12 hours at a time. However, we recommend emptying it more often to check your flow.

08. Use the AIR VALVE

If you feel abdominal bloating or pain that is caused by internal pressure, gently pressing the air valve.

HOW TO REMOVE

01. Wash

Wash your hands before handling LEONA CUP. 

02. Relax

Find a time when you are relaxed without distractions. Relax your muscles and find a comfortable position.

03. Use the AIR VALVE

Remove 

Simply press the air valve once or twice. It enables the seal between the body and the cup to be easily broken. Next, slowly pull the cup down while moving it from side to side.

* If the AIR VALVE does not work first time, press lightly on the other side.

 

Clean

To clean the AIR VALVE, press it a few times with the stem in running water.
When the valve is pressed when removing the cup, some liquid may enter the inner structure of the cup, however the dual structure of the AIR VALVE will not let blood leak through.
