How do I insert & remove Flex Reusable Disc?

How to insert Flex Reusable Disc:

  1. Wash your hands and clean Flex Reusable Disc using warm water and a mild soap or cleanser. 

  2. Locate the easy insertion notch on the inner rim of the disc. Make sure that the notch is facing up and the catch is situated below the rim, extending downwards. Pinch the disc in half so that the notch creates a leading edge (AKA a narrow point) for insertion that you’ll use to guide the disc into the vaginal canal. 

  3. Choose a position: Either sit on the toilet, squat with knees wide, or put one leg up on the toilet. Relax your pelvic floor and gently separate your labia with your free hand. 

  4. Insert the pinched disc (notched end first) into the vaginal canal, pushing the disc down and back into the fornix, towards your tailbone. Push the disc as far as it can comfortably go. It may feel strange but it shouldn’t hurt.

  5. Use your thumb or index finger to tuck the front rim of the disc upward and behind your pubic bone. When inserted properly, you should not be able to feel the disc internally (AKA with your vagina).

Mid-wear experience:

  1. When you first start using the Reusable Disc, it's normal to experience a small amount of leakage. It may take a couple of cycles to get the hang of positioning the disc and figure out how it sits in relation to your unique anatomy.

  2. Worried your Reusable Disc is getting full? You can empty some of the blood hands-free just by sitting on the toilet. To do so, bear down on your pelvic floor muscles (as if you're trying to poop). This will move the disc forward, just beyond the pubic bone, releasing some of its contents into the toilet. When you're done, use a clean finger to tuck the disc back into place. 

  3. Anytime you go to the bathroom, remember to use a clean finger (or the thumb trick) to make sure your disc is in the proper position, tucked up behind the pubic bone. 

How to remove Flex Reusable Disc:

  1. Wash your hands. Sit on the toilet and relax your pelvic floor muscles.

  2. Hook your finger (either your thumb, thumbnail-side-up or your index finger, nail-side-down) under the rim of the disc. Pull straight out, keeping the rim parallel to the floor. If needed, help push the disc out by bearing down on your pelvic floor as if you’re trying to poop.

  3. Empty the contents into the toilet and repeat steps 1-5 to clean and reinsert your Flex Reusable Disc.
