Types of Folds

Different folds help your cup to form shapes that best suit your anatomy. There are lots of methods to do it. Here are two easy folds you can try practicing -

1. U-Fold:

A common and popular method to fold the cup is the U-fold. Hold the cup with both hands and fold it in such a way where both of your thumbs meet. Now push the cup to flatten it so that it creates the U shape.

2. Punch Down Fold:

The punch-down fold is ideal for first-time users and those who have a smaller vaginal opening. Hold the taller end of the cup at the base with both of your hands. Place the index finger of your dominant hand to push the top part down inside. Now use your non-dominant hand to bring the sides together. Remove your index finger and use your dominant hand to hold the cup firmly.
