The ELANEE Menstrual Cup is suitable for use by women from the first to the very last period and is available in two sizes:
Size 1: light to normal periods
Diameter: 40 mm, capacity: 23 ml
Size 2: heavy periods
Diameter: 45 mm, capacity: 33 ml

Usage:

Before each use, check the menstrual cup for damage.

How do you insert the ELANEE Menstrual Cup?

Wash your hands thoroughly before inserting the menstrual cup.

  • Fold the cup either into a C-shape (a) or a mussel-shape (b) and when doing this, make sure that the side with the pull tab is pushed towards the middle. Hold the folded cup firmly with your thumb on one side and index and middle finger on the other side as low down as possible.

 

  • Try out different positions to see which will be the most comfortable for you to insert the cup: standing or squatting, with one leg raised or sitting on the toilet. Relax your vaginal muscles and part your labia with your free hand. Insert the folded menstrual cup into the vagina in the direction of your coccyx until the grip area is approximately 2 cm above your vaginal opening. The menstrual cup will open before it is fully inserted and will sit at the lower end of the vagina (c).
  • In order to check whether the menstrual cup is in the correct position, hold the cup by the lower part (not on the grip) and rotate the cup half a turn in any direction. If the menstrual cup can be rotated easily, this tells you that it has fully opened. If you get the feeling that the pull tab is too long, or is annoying, you can cut off one of the hearts (d).

How do you remove the ELANEE Menstrual Cup?

Depending on how heavy your period is, you should empty the menstrual cup several times a day to make sure it doesn’t overflow. We recommend removing the cup and cleaning it after a maximum of 8 hours.

Wash your hands thoroughly and make sure you are in a comfortable position before removing the menstrual cup.

Option 1

  • Relax the vaginal muscles, hold onto one heart on the pull tab with your thumb and index finger and pull carefully (e).
  • Pull the cup downwards using the pull tab until it is positioned loosely in your vagina.
  • Let go of the heart and hold the cup by the grip area to pull it out of your vagina.

Option 2

You can also remove the ELANEE Menstrual Cup just like any standard menstrual cup:

  • Relax your vaginal muscles and gently pull on the grip area until you can get hold of the lower part of the cup.
  • Press it together and pull the cup out of your vagina.
  • Alternatively you can slide two fingers between the vaginal wall and the menstrual cup and then pull it out.

Use the markings on the inside of the cup to read off the volume:

  • Size 1: 10 ml and 20 ml
  • Size 2: 15 ml and 25 ml

Empty the contents into the toilet. Clean the menstrual cup as described in Point 9 and re-insert it.

What should you do if you feel uncomfortable when you are wearing the ELANEE Menstrual Cup or when it is leaking?

First try to remove the menstrual cup as described above and put it back in, just to be sure that the cup is in the correct position. If it doesn’t feel comfortable, then this may be because the selected cup size is not the right one for you. Choosing the right size depends on how heavy your period is, your age, your pelvic floor muscles or whether you have given birth with a vaginal delivery. If you get the feeling that the pull tab is too long, or is annoying, you can cut off one of the hearts (d).

 

FUNCTIONALITY

The ELANEE Menstrual Cup is inserted into the vagina to collect the menstrual secretion. The cup, which is folded to insert, then unfolds in the vagina and, thanks to the flexible material it sits against the vaginal wall in such a way that the menstrual blood cannot flow past. Removal is made easier by a special mechanism: the heart-shaped grip of the pull tab, which is connected to the edge of the cup, needs to be pulled. Through the tensile force, the upper edge of the cup releases from the vaginal wall so that the cup can be easily pulled out of the vagina. Alternatively, the ELANEE Menstrual Cup can also be removed just like standard menstrual cups.

During your period:

After emptying it, clean the menstrual cup thoroughly with mild soap and rinse it under running water. If it is not possible to rinse the cup (e.g. when in a public toilet), then you can wipe it out with toilet paper or a tissue and clean it properly the next time you have the opportunity.
