What is the thumb trick?

The thumb trick is one of our favorite pro tips for menstrual disc insertion (including Flex Disc, Flex Plant+ Disc, and Flex Reusable Disc). 

While inserting the disc, using your thumb can be super helpful to get the disc down and back into the right position. Many users find that their thumb naturally goes in that direction and is steadier than an index finger.

Simply pinch the disc and insert it down and back into the vaginal canal. Once you can no longer keep the disc pinched, place your thumb on the rim and push the disc all the way back (angled down towards your tailbone) the rest of the way until it's just behind the pubic bone. You may need to insert another finger afterwards to pull and tuck the rim of the disc up behind your pubic bone. This final step is important for keeping the disc in place and preventing leaks!
