FLEX logo disc is easy to use

  •    Position
    • Wash your hands and take a deep breath. You've got this! You can sit over the toilet, stand with a leg up, or go in a full squat. Play around until you find a position that works best for you! FLEX disc may look big but it’s actually smaller than a tampon when you pinch it in half.

  •    Pinch
    • Pinch FLEX in half and begin inserting it into the vaginal canal by holding the disc pointing downwards in a vertical position.

  •    Insertion
    • Make sure you are pushing the edge that goes in first down toward the floor so that it sits at an vertical angle and fully covers the cervix. Down and back is key!

    Insert the pinched disc partway into your vaginal canal. Angle your thumb towards yourself pointing to the floor (think thumbs down). Now, use your thumb to push the tip of the rim the rest of the way in making sure you are pushing the edge that goes in first down toward the floor. Down and back is key! By doing this, you’ll have more control over the direction your disc is going.

  •    Placement
    • Tuck the rim (the front edge that goes in last) above your pubic bone. Make sure it's pushed past the pubic bone as far as it can go. You shouldn’t be able to feel it at all if it’s in the right place.

  •    Wear it for up to 12 hours
    • Swim, work out, have sex, go to the bathroom, sleep, go along your day without having to worry about leaks or changes.

    When you go to the bathroom and relax your pelvic floor FLEX disc will push out enough to empty into the toilet. FLEX disc should pop right back into place when you stand up. If it feels like it hasn't gone back into place, just use a clean finger or do a kegel to get it back into place behind the pubic bone.

  •    Removal
    • Always start with clean hands. Take a seat on the toilet or stand with one leg up and slide your finger up under the front edge of FLEX disc and pull straight down, keeping it parallel to the floor.

    While removing FLEX shouldn't be too messy to begin with, removing FLEX in the shower at the end (or beginning!) of your day can help prevent any mess at all. Go slow & steady is the way to go! Keep the disc parallel to the ground to help minimize mess.

  •    Disposal
    • Once you've removed FLEX disc, turn the disc upside down to empty the fluid into the toilet, place the empty disc in a wrapper and dispose in the trash.

Questions & Answers
1. What's the difference between FLEX Disc and FLEX Cup?

Simply put: FLEX Disc is a menstrual disc and FLEX Cup is a menstrual cup.

A menstrual disc is a round, flexible ring with a catch that sits at the base of the cervix in a place called the vaginal fornix. A menstrual cup is a small flexible period collection device that sits in the vaginal canal and is typically tapered at the base.

Both the disc and the cup can be worn for up to 12 hours, but what you do once you take it out is another point of difference. The disc is disposable and single-use only, so you simply empty the contents and throw it away after a single use. With the cup, after emptying the contents, you clean it with soap and water and reinsert as directed.

Because of where the disc sits in the body, it can also be worn during penetrative sexual intercourse, the cup however must be removed before sexual intercourse. Some people prefer the disc, some prefer the cup, and some like to use both depending on the day! Whether you choose single-use disposable discs or a reusable cup is up to you. We believe in the power of choice, which is why we offer the most innovative options in both categories.

2. Do they work with a heavy flow?

The majority of our customers have heavy flows - including those with endometriosis and PCOS who swear by FLEX products.

FLEX Disc can hold up to three super tampons worth of menstrual fluid. It is also safe to wear for up to 12 hours. Another benefit of using FLEX Disc on a heavy flow day is that we have a trick for hands-free emptying so you don’t even have to remove your disc to achieve the full 12-hour wear!

FLEX Cup is also a great option for users with heavy flows. The Slim Fit holds the equivalent of 2 super tampons, while the Full Fit holds the same 3 super tampons’ worth of period blood. On heavier days, just like the disc, it may require more frequent emptying.

3. Can I use them with an IUD?

There is a small risk of any internally worn menstrual product getting caught on your IUD - including tampons, menstrual discs, and cups.

If you use an IUD, you should be informed about your particular IUDs benefits and risks and consult with your physician.

4. Does removing them get messy?

Whenever you try a new period product, removal can be a little wonky at first. You may get period blood on your hand but it gets easier the more you do it.

FLEX Cup’s unique pull-tab assists with removal making it easier - and mess-free!

FLEX Disc can take a little bit more practice and yes, for some people it can get a little messy, but most customers find that it's not nearly as messy as they expected.

Most people will plan their disc or cup wear around their schedule in order to remove the product in the comfort of their home or in the shower.

Try FLEX with some liners at first.

Sometimes you just feel better with a little backup. FLEX plus liners would be a great combination for you while you transition to FLEX to help guard against leaks until you get the hang of positioning FLEX.
