Flex Disc sits somewhere different

“Flex was designed to solve many of the problems caused by traditional menstrual products. It doesn't change the vaginal flora reducing the risk of infections and has not been linked to toxic shock syndrome."


A helpful guide to Flex Disc insertion, wear & removal.



Flex Disc may look big but it’s actually smaller than a tampon when inserted. Start by washing your hands and pinch it in half.

Use a clean finger to push the disc back and down toward the cervix, then tuck it up and behind the pubic bone.



Once the disc is in place, you should be comfortable and unable to feel it. You can wear it safely for up to 12 hours.



To remove, hook a clean finger under the rim of the disc and pull straight out. Keep it parallel to the floor to avoid spillage.



Pour the liquid into the toilet, and wrap the disc in toilet paper (or a Flex Eco Disposal Pouch) before tossing it in the trash.

    Very Surprised!

    I must admit, I was a bit skeptical but decided to give it a try. I was shocked to see that throughout the day, I had no leaks and it did empty itself once! I wore for 11 hours, but as a first-timer, had a hard time removing it. I began freaking out as I thought I would have to go to the ER. But I kept trying, and realized what I had to do. It was very messy, which is why they suggest taking it out in the shower, but I got it! With practice, it will become 2nd nature so I'm sticking with it. Never going back to tampons!

    I’ll never use a tampon again! Super comfy. I ❤️

    I love the flex disc. I’ve been using them for about 3 years now, and I refuse to use anything else. I wish they had been around when I was in my 20’s!!! I’ve recommended them to my sisters, by nieces, and every other female I come in contact with. The disc is a definite game changer. And the little “Put me in, Coach!” that you see when you open the box always makes me giggle. 🤭

    Finally found relief after years of struggling

    As someone who has hormonal problems that causes an extremely heavy flow I would struggle to find tampon brands that could keep me protected for a few hours. From my teenage years to early 20's I would be bleeding through ultra tampons running to the bathroom every hour just to change them, this would be even harder if I did not always have access to a bathroom or at work /school where I cannot take frequent bathroom breaks. After trying flex today I was able to keep it in for 12 hours on my heaviest day without any problems, and the auto dumping feature was also a big help for me. For the first time in many years, today was the only day where I wasn't getting anxiety over the fact that I needed to run to the bathroom every hour to change my leaking tampon before it was too late. But if you are someone who has not yet tried flex I would recommend practicing inserting it properly before your period even starts, because inserting it incorrectly will make the disc have improper placement causing leaks. You need to have proper placement in order to make the disc work and always make sure it is tucked behind your public bone. I really hope this product works out for many other women since it has truly helped me find relief during my period after years of struggling and anxiety.

    True Believer

    As someone who’s moved from pads to tampons, the appeal of having another option without risks was enough to get me intrigued. Reusable cups seemed like a lot, and I stumbled upon the opportunity to try a flex disc. Wow! The process wasn’t at all complicated or as intimidating as I thought. The included diagrams and explanations in the box were really clear and detailed, and it was in quick without issue on the first try. I was almost worried I did something wrong because of how easy it was. You don’t notice it, and my partner didn’t feel anything either. Removal is a little difficult since you’re trying to find the little tab/ridge, but I’m sure I just need to practice and get used to it more. So many benefits! If you’re someone who is flexible about your options and is willing to get a little ‘hands-on’, this is for you.
