Menstrual Cups - Frequently Asked Questions
The cervix is a tight circular muscle through which menstrual fluid flows from the uterus to the cervix for excretion. The cervix feels somewhat like the tip of the nose, while the vaginal walls feel like the inside of the cheek. The cervix can change position according to your menstrual cycle, so to check the position of the cervix correctly, you should wait until the menstrual cycle is measured, because the cervix is at its lowest position at that time. Wash your hands and insert your index finger into your vagina. If you can already touch the cervix when you reach the second finger joint with your index finger, then you should lower the cervix.

Also, the slight vacuum pressure created when wearing a menstrual cup should not interfere with a properly positioned IUD. Even so, we recommend that you be careful to release the vacuum pressure when removing the menstrual cup. More importantly, when you put on the menstrual cup, you should make sure that the IUD wire is above the menstrual cup, so that the wire does not get pulled when the menstrual cup is removed.
Please note that during the first few months of wearing, your body may reject the IUD no matter what type of menstrual protection product you use. This rejection usually occurs during menstruation.
