Novel Design

Easier insertion

Gradual insertion and smaller area at the top upon fold, due to the inclined curved rim. 

Ergonomical

Cervix-friendly (cup not hitting the cervix), as the vagina and cervix are at an angle, and the inclined curved rim complements the angle.

Also, the design is ergonomic for people with tilted cervix.

Easier removal

Instant breaking of seal (air-tight suction), due to flat-concave faces.

Grip

Firm grip on the cup while removing & washing, due to flat-concave faces on both sides.

Lifestyle Value

Up to 12 hours wear-time

Sport-friendly

Travel-friendly

Dry

Maintenance

First-time adopters:

  • It is suggested that one should relax before trying out the cup. Maybe taking a few deep breaths, as this exercise helps the vaginal muscles to relax. The cup should not be tried/ used in a tense state of mind. 
  • The vagina should be lubricated when one uses the cup. Users can try using water to make the process smooth and irritation-free.

The journey can be daunting for a first-time user, but if one tries consistently, one’ll be comfortable with the product in about two menstrual cycles. Prior cup users will find it much easier to switch to Onpery® menstrual cups within the first cycle.

Leakage:

  • When one is switching to a menstrual cup (for the first-time or to a different brand/ design), it is suggested to use it along with a liner or napkin, for the first few menstrual cycles.
  • To make sure that the cup has popped-up & formed the seal (air-tight suction) at the vaginal wall after insertion, one should gently twist or rotate the cup from the bottom. Further one should gently try to pull the cup and if the cup is not coming out or sliding, then it can be understood that it has formed the seal (air-tight suction).

Maintaining product lifecycle:

  • Vapours should not be left on the cup after sterilization. Vapours have to be wiped with a cotton cloth.
  • Cup has to be stored in a dry and dark (no sunlight) space.
  • Cup has to be kept away from hot surfaces.
  • Any scratches or cuts on the cup have to be avoided.
  • Not to be used by menstruators using Copper-IUD.
  • Not to be used post-delivery of infant(s), for about a year. One may consult a doctor in such cases.

A user can dump the product into a medical waste bin near a medical clinic or similar place from where the menstrual cup can be treated as medical waste (such as it may go into an incinerator and getting converted into ash).

One can also burn the silicone menstrual cup to ash. Medical-grade silicone is derived from silica, which is found in sand. Silicone is made through a chemical process but from natural materials, so the ash left behind isn’t harmful to the environment.

How to know if the Cup is not ideal for use anymore:

  • If there is any scratch or cut on the surface of the cup.
  • If the cup has deformed due to coming in contact with a hot surface.

Discolouration:

The silicone (if 100% pure) by nature changes its colour if kept in an open space. If the Onpery® menstrual cup changes its colour after a few months due to natural reasons, then there is nothing to be worried about. In case of any concern please contact a doctor.

How to Use

Phase 1: Cleaning

Sterilization:
Cup needs to be boiled (in a metal container or kettle) or vapourized (in a sterilizer) in water for 3-5 minutes before being used throughout menstruation. Cup needs to be placed in such a manner that it floats, to avoid much contact with the container. One should sterilize the cup before and after their menstruation, and is not much required on a daily basis.

Wash:
Hands need to be washed (with soap) before inserting the cup into the vagina. One should prefer using regular clean water to clean the cup, rather than using harsh soaps or cleaning liquid. Using soap or liquid on the cup can increase the chances of unnoticed residue and can change the pH balance of the vagina.

Phase 2: Fold

While there are many folds a transitioning user could try, it is mostly recommended to try the ‘punch-down fold’ for a first-time user. One may try practising each fold before starting the process of insertion.

a. U-fold:
A common and popular method to fold the cup is the U-fold. One has to hold the cup with both hands and fold it in such a way that both of their thumbs meet. Now one has to push the cup to flatten it so that it creates the U-shape at the top opening.

b. Punch-down fold:
The punch-down fold is ideal for first-time users or those who have a smaller vaginal opening. One has to place the index finger of their dominant hand to push the top-part/ one-side of the rim down inside. Now the non-dominant hand has to be used to bring the sides together. Now one can remove their index finger and use their dominant hand to hold the folded cup firmly.

Phase 3: Insertion

Posture:
One needs to spread their legs apart and then bend slightly over so they have enough space. Some people find it comfortable to keep one leg on the toilet seat. One could also try squatting; and feel free to try different postures to figure out what works best for them.

Insert:
The folded cup should be gently pushed inside the vaginal through the vaginal opening, such that the cup with its stem gets comfortably inside the vagina. (During insertion, one should ensure that the long side of the folded cup is toward the back of the vaginal wall.)

Phase 4: Placement

Placement:
Once the cup has been inserted in the vagina, one should use very little pressure to pinch at the bottom of the cup and twist it slightly or rotate their finger around the cup. This act will ensure that the cup has popped up and formed a seal (air-tight suction) inside your vagina.

Seal check:
One has to gently try to pull the cup slightly outward and if it resists being pulled, then it has formed the seal (air-tight suction).

Phase 5: Usage & check

One can let the cup collect the blood for up to 12 hours, depending on their menstrual flow.

Phase 6: Removal

Posture:
One needs to spread their legs apart and then bend slightly over so they have enough space. Some people find it comfortable to keep one leg on the toilet seat. One could also try squatting; and feel free to try different postures to figure out what works best for them.

Remove:
Hands need to be washed (with soap) before removing the cup from the vagina. After taking the required posture, one should pinch the cup at the front and back flat sides such that the seal (air-tight suction) breaks and then slowly go on to pull out the cup.

Phase 7: Reuse/ Store

For reuse:
When the cup is reused in the same menstrual cycle, one can wash it with water (and need not sterilize the cup) between removal and the next insertion. The cup needs to be sterilized before and after the end of each menstruation.

Storage:
After the end of your cycle, sterilize the cup and allow it to dry completely before storing it in the pouch.

FAQ

One-word answer is - No. 

A "virgin" is considered to be someone who's never had sex. Sexual engagement is a wide spectrum and it depends on what is considered to be intercourse. It is widely considered that having penis-in-vagina sex for the first time is how one "loses their virginity" (as the hymen gets broken and the blood is released).

But speaking biologically, the hymen is a thin piece of tissue that fully or partially covers the vagina; insertion/ removal of the cup may break the hymen (which may release blood), but so can activities like playing sports or cycling. In fact, there are some people who are born without a hymen. 

Hence, using a cup has nothing to do with "virginity".

No! The cup is placed in the vagina, after being inserted from the outer opening of it at the vulva. The vagina is usually up to 60 mm long. The other side of it has a cervix which has a very tiny hole through which it is impossible for the cup to pass. Hence, the cup has only one side to enter and the same side to exit from the vagina, and so the cup will never get lost.

If a cup is causing discomfort, chances are that it is hitting the wall/ bottom of the cervix, because the cup not being of appropriate size.

If one uses the appropriate size of the cup and still feels some discomfort, then they should consult a doctor.

Vulva has two openings, one is of the vagina and another is called the urethra, from where urine escapes the body. As the cup is in the vagina and not the urethra (which anyway is not possible to be in), the cup cannot block or collect urine. Hence, one doesn’t need to remove their cup while peeing.

The vagina is a wonderful organ and one can compare it to a rubber band. It will slightly spread when the cup is placed but it will come back to its original position and form once the cup is removed. Using a menstrual cup will not affect the size or form of the vagina.

If one is using a certified and medical-grade silicone menstrual cup, and maintained it properly, then there will be no possibility of any infections from the material, as silicone doesn’t react with the human body.

A simple way of tackling this in the initial days is to set a timer. The nature of menstrual cycles varies from person to person, and for the first few usages, one can remove and reinsert the cup frequently to get an idea of the flow and usage duration. A cup can normally be used anywhere between 6 to 10 hours on a stretch.

It is recommended to replace a menstrual cup every 3-5 years. It should be replaced immediately if it has any cuts, holes, scratches, deformation or just isn’t simply in a good condition anymore.

Silicone changing its colour (mostly yellowish) with time is a natural property of the material and is not a cause for concern.

One can switch to a cup at any age provided they find their suitable cup size. Women who are using Copper-IUD or have given birth in the last 12 months should not use the cup.

Cup Vs Disc

  • Disc can be used by menstruators, who are already using Copper-IUD, as Disc doesn't form a seal (air-tight suction), whereas Cup forms a seal (air-tight suction).
  • Disc can be used during sexual penetration for mess-free sexual intercourse, which also in some cases may reduce menstrual cramps.
