Determining your Amount of Flow

How to use the Ruby Cup:

Be sure to boil your Ruby cup for 2-3 minutes before using it for the first time. You can also sterilise it using the Ruby Clean microwave steriliser. When starting out on your menstrual cup journey, be patient and relax. It can take a couple of cycles to get used to your new cup.


  1. Always wash your hands before insertion or removal of your Ruby Cup
  2. Fold the cup into the ‘C-fold’ (or your other favourite type of fold)
  3. Gently push the Ruby cup into your vagina so that it is positioned underneath your cervix. Head towards the tip of your tailbone rather than in a ‘straight up’ angle.
  4. Once inserted, allow the cup to ‘pop’ open and create a suction seal around the vaginal wall.


  1. Wash your hands
  2. Gently pull the stem with your fingers and use your stomach muscles to ‘bear down’ and move the Ruby cup downwards until you can grasp the base of the cup.
  3. Squeeze the base of the cup to release the suction and then carefully remove it.
  4. Empty, rinse, and reinsert. If you can’t access any water for rinsing your cup, simply wipe it with some toilet tissue. You can then rinse it properly when next able.

Depending on your level of flow, you may need to empty your cup every 4-8 hours.

How to Clean the Ruby Cup:

During your cycle, simply rinse your cup with cold water every time you empty it. It is then ready to re-insert. You do not need to disinfect your cup between uses during your period.

At the end of your cycle, it is recommended to disinfect your cup before storing it away until next time. Rinse your cup and then immerse in a pan or pot of water. Boil for 3-5 minutes being careful that the cup doesn’t touch the base of the pan. You can also sterilise the Ruby cup in the microwave using the portable and handy Ruby Clean Sterilizer.

After sterilising, ensure the cup is completely dry before storing it away in its cotton bag. It should be stored in such a way that it receives some ventilation, so avoid keeping your cup in an airtight container.

    Apart from the over-sizing, the stem is a little long but it can be cut. The cup volume is ample for the amount of blood which came as a surprise. It’s reasonably comfortable to wear although getting it in is awkward. (I tried a pre-period test run which was a terrible idea). Removing it safely is a bit tricky too. The suction freaked me out (prolapse anyone??).
    The first day when I removed the cup, I cannot express how bad the smell was. Seriously rancid. But it must have been related to my internal bacteria because the second day was back to normal.
    It will take me a year or more to recoup the costs of the cup compared with pads and tampons, but environmentally it’s a good choice, and it’s quite convenient. Not having the mess makes you almost forget you’re on your period.

    I don’t love it – the stem has a very rough texture and while that may help for grip it’s uncomfortable once placed. There’s also a small hole in the end of the stem that I feel could be hard to keep clean and free of bacteria. Overall there are other cups that are much better than this one, in my opinion.

    I have only used it once so far. It’s very flexible and easy to insert. I had some trouble getting it into the correct position and had some leakage at first. I also had trouble removing it as it felt like it had moved higher up. If not for the thick stem with the bumps, I worried that I might not be able to retrieve it. I got the black cup which gives the illusion that it’s less messy, as you can’t see the blood. I would recommend this cup to others.

    Easy enough, but upon using it for my second month it’s not the cup for me, as I have a high cervix and a heavy flow.
