JuJu is available in four models and can be used by women of all ages.
Please note that the above sizing recommendations should be used as a guide only. While the majority of women will use either a model 1 or model 2 Juju, there are rare cases when the model 3 or model 4 may be more suitable.
If you have had a caesarean birth a Model 1 or Model 2 JuJu may be suitable.
When selecting a Model number, please also consider the factors below in conjunction with childbearing history.
Pelvic floor tone and exercise
If you have particularly strong pelvic floor tone due to practicing regular kegel exercises or other activities such as pilates, yoga or dance you may wish to consider a Model 1, regardless of childbearing history or age.
If you have had vaginal corrective surgery you may wish to consider a Model 1.
If you have poor pelvic tone, you may wish to consider the model 4 Juju.
Virgins and young women
A Model 1 JuJu is recommended for virgins and sexually active young women (under the age of 30).
If you have a petite or small build, you may wish to consider a Model 1 JuJu. If you have a larger build, you may wish to consider a Model 2 JuJu.
If you have a very low cervix or short vaginal canal, a Model 4 may suit you well. You likely have a very low cervix if you consistently feel your cervix sitting just inside the vaginal opening. If you can touch your cervix but have only inserted the tip of your finger up to your ‘first knuckle’ (or the bend in your finger just below your fingernail), you most likely have a low cervix and a Model 4 JuJu Cup may be the most suitable for you. The Model 4 JuJu Cup is better suited to shorter vaginal canals as it has a shorter body and stem when compared with other JuJu Models. Please only choose this model if you are sure you have a low cervix throughout your cycle as the removal of this cup may be more difficult if you have a normal to high cervix. In most cases, the Model 4 JuJu Cup is not recommended for young girls or virgins.
If you have a particularly high cervix or long vaginal canal, a Model 3 may be better suited to your anatomy. For example, if you are unable to reach your cervix or need to insert your finger past the middle bend in your finger before you can feel your cervix, you most likely have a high cervix and may like to consider the Model 3 JuJu Cup. The Model 3 JuJu Cup has a longer body, which makes removal easier for women with a high cervix and longer vaginal canal.
If you have any gynaecological concerns, such as a particularly long or narrow vaginal canal, we recommend you seek the advice of your medical practitioner prior to using JuJu to see if it is suitable for you.
Some women may lose vaginal and pelvic floor tone due to hormonal changes or age (particularly after the age of 30). In this case a Model 2 may be a preferred choice.
Wash your hands with soap and warm water. Rinse your hands thoroughly and then rinse your JuJu in running water, as it's easier to insert when wet. You can use water or a water-based lubricant on the entrance of your vagina, or you can insert your JuJu in the shower.
Step 2: Fold
Fold your JuJu into a 'c' shape using both hands - flatten two sides together then fold it over itself.
Step 3: Hold
Hold your JuJu firmly in your dominant hand, below the upper rim. Spread your legs and gently part your labia (skin around the vagina) with your free hand. Make sure the round side of the ‘c’ is facing up.
Step 4: Insert
Insert your JuJu slowly into your vaginal opening, with the ‘c’ side up. Direct it back towards the base of your spine, at a 45% angle, not straight up. Stop as soon as the cup and stem are not visible. You can insert your JuJu from a sitting, squatting, standing (with one leg raised) or kneeling position, whatever is most comfortable for you. The easiest way for most first time users is to squat down with the knees spread open.
Step 5: Ensure
Ensure the cup has opened by either swirling your finger around the outside of the cup or you can try to rotate your cup to ensure there is a good seal. If your cup has not opened, you can try to do a few pelvic floor exercises to open it or re-insert and check it again. Wash your hands with soap and warm water.
Step 1: Wash
Wash your hands with warm water and soap. Relax - removal is easier if you are not tense.
NOTE: Do not try to remove your JuJu by pulling on the stem as this will increase the suction seal and make removal more difficult. Removing your cup by pulling the stem may also cause the stem to break.
Step 2: Remove
Remove your JuJu from a comfortable position. Squatting will shorten the vagina and make it easier to remove. Relax your vaginal muscles - relaxing your jaw will also help relax the rest of your body. Feel for the base of your JuJu. If you cannot feel your JuJu at the opening of your vagina, bear down slightly to push it lower. Gently tug on the stem until you can squeeze the base of the cup to break the suction seal. Fold your JuJu into a slim shape as you slowly pull one side out first and then tilt it and release the other side. Once removed, keep your JuJu upright to avoid spilling fluid.
Step 3: Empty
Empty the contents into the toilet. Wash your JuJu in the sink with warm water and a fragrance-free, oil-free soap and then rinse it thoroughly. If a sink is not available, you can wipe your JuJu clean with toilet paper or rinse with water from a bottle.
Step 4: Re-insert
Re-insert your JuJu and wash your hands with soap and warm water.
Cleaning your JuJu Cup
Wash your JuJu with a fragrance-free, oil-free soap, warm water and a soft cloth or brush to remove any residual build up.
Ensure that the tiny holes at the top of your JuJu are clear as they help form and release the seal. The holes can be cleaned by squirting water through them or carefully use a toothpick (discard after use) to remove any debris.
Thoroughly rinse your cup.
At the end of your cycle, you can then disinfect your cup.
At the end of your cycle when you have finished using your cup, boil your JuJu in a pot of water for 3 - 5 minutes (never boil JuJu for more than 5 minutes).
Rinse and dry your JuJu before putting it back in its own carry-bag until your next period. Always store JuJu in a ventilated area; never keep in a plastic bag or airtight container as moisture cannot evaporate without airflow and your cup will not dry properly.
Over time, you might notice some discolouration of your JuJu. If this occurs you can cleanse your JuJu with isopropyl rubbing alcohol.
If you notice any rips, tears or changes in the texture of your JuJu, it’s time to replace it.
