How do I insert and remove Flex Disc?

How to insert Flex Disc:

  1. Wash your hands. Always wash your hands before insertion and removal.

  2. Find a position to insert your disc. Some sit over the toilet, some stand with a leg elevated, some insert in a full squat. Play around until you find a position that works best for you!

  3. Pinch the disc in half and begin inserting it into the vaginal canal, making sure you are pushing the edge that goes in first down toward the floor so that it sits at an angle and fully covers the cervix. Down and back is key!

  4. Tuck the rim above your pubic bone. Make sure it's pushed past the pubic bone as far as it can go.

  5. You shouldn't be able to feel the disc. If you're uncomfortable, just take it out and try it again (practice makes perfect).

How to remove Flex Disc:

  1. Relax. Making sure your muscles aren't tense will help with removing Flex Disc swiftly and comfortably. So take a couple of deep breaths and relax. You got this!

  2. Sit over the toilet and bear down on your pelvic floor. The sensation will sort of be like that of pooping (don't worry - you won't actually poop). This will help pop the disc out from behind the pubic bone making it easier for you to reach.

  3. With a clean finger, hook the disc from under black rim in "come here" motion (or "come hither" if that's more your style) and pull - be sure to keep Flex horizontal to the floor to prevent any spillage.

  4. Empty the contents of the disc into the toilet and place the used disc in the wrapper and dispose.
