However, it is important to consider other factors such as cervix height, bladder sensitivity, and the heaviness of your flow in addition to your age and the strength of your pelvic floor muscles.
Question: When should I replace my DivineWomen`s™ cup?
Answer:As the DivineWomen`s™ cup is a personal hygiene product, we recommend that you inspect your cup regularly for signs of deterioration such as a sticky or powdery film, severe discoloration or odor, etc. If you detect any of these signs, or if you experience irritation, we recommend you replace your DivineWomen`s™ cup with a new one.
Question: How much blood does it hold?
Answer: Our DivineWomen`s™ cup Lholds one full ounce of menstrual flow (30 ml). DivineWomen`s™ cup S holds just over half an ounce (20 ml) of flow. For comparison, the average regular sized tampon holds about 5 ml of menstrual flow.
Question: How should I get ready to use it for the first time?
Answer: Before your first DivineWomen`s™ cup use, submerge the DivineWomen`s™ cup in an open pot of boiling water for 5 – 10 minutes. This is a mandatory first step.
It is not necessary to boil your DivineWomen`s™ cup between cycles, as regular cleaning can be sufficient.
Question: How long can I wear my cup?
Answer: The DivineWomen`s™ cup can be worn for up to 12 consecutive hours, depending on your flow. It should be emptied, washed and rinsed a minimum of two to three times per 24-hour period.
Questions: What if I can`t get it out?
Answer: It can take some time to get the hang of insertion and removal. However, the vaginal canal is an elastic, muscular tube only about four (4) – five (5) inches (10.2 – 12.7 cm) long – there is nowhere for the Intimissio™ cup to get “lost” inside you, as the vagina does not connect to other parts of the body.
When inserted correctly, the DivineWomen`s™ cup should sit low at the base of the canal, away from the cervix, making it possible for you to reach the stem and grip the base to remove it. Making sure you keep your muscles relaxed for removal is key!
