If FLEX Disc Is Leaking Outside of Bathroom Time
If your disc is leaking when you're not in the bathroom, it may not be inserted in a way that works best for your personal anatomy. Try:
1. Check your cervix. To get a better sense of where a menstrual disc should sit and how far back it will need to be inserted, you can always try to feel your cervix first before inserting the disc. You can feel your cervix by inserting a clean finger into the vaginal canal and bearing down on your pelvic muscles. Also, make sure that you're completely seated or squatting - this will move the cervix closer to the vaginal opening. You should feel a smooth tiny circle (it kind of feels like puckered lips.)
2. Making sure that you pushed FLEX as far back as you can with your finger. We've found some of our customers don't push their disc back far enough, so the disc is not tucked behind the pubic bone and is still partly placed in the vaginal canal. Kegels can help get FLEX in the right place too!
3. Try inserting in a different position. Everyone's anatomy is different, so you might find that it's easier to tuck FLEX behind the pubic bone if you're squatting or with one leg up.
4. Try The Thumb Trick! If you haven't checked it out yet, please do! It gives you better leverage and can really help 'lock' FLEX disc in place.
