To comfortably insert your Kind menstrual cup, you’ll need to fold it. To help you get started, we’ve pulled together a list of 6 different folds for you to find the fold that’s most comfortable for you.
It’s important to remember that we are all unique and there are no fixed rules when it comes to inserting your menstrual cup. There’s a whole range of menstrual cup folds and what feels most comfortable can depend on your shape, sexual or gynaecological history or whether you’ve given birth.
Folds are harder to explain than they are to actually do, but hopefully, our photo guides will help give you some inspiration and a good idea of where to start:
The ‘U’ or ‘C’ Fold
The ‘Punchdown’ Fold
The ‘7’ Fold
The ‘Double 7’ Fold
The ‘S’ Fold
The ‘Labia’ Fold
Give yourself the time to try different folds to find the one that suits you best. We’re all different and it’s important to go with what is most effective and comfortable for you. Got a fold that’s working for you but missing from our list? Let us know! We always love discovering new folds.
Whether you’re new to our Kind cup or thinking about making the switch, we want to give you as much support and information as possible to make it work for you.
