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.

Insertion:

  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.

Removal:

  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.

    I chose to move to a cup because it is more sustainable. I’ve only used it for one cycle but found it easy to use and didn’t feel it at all (whereas sometimes I would be aware of a tampon). I had a little leakage in the first few days read up on how to avoid leaks and it was all sorted! Removing the cup can be a little uncomfortable but I think with continued use it will become much easier. It is very simple, comfortable and worth changing to.

    I have a Diva cup that took time to get used to, so I expect the Ruby will take a while to get used to as well.
    Having said that, don’t give up if you find the cup awkward at first, it is worth it in the end. Think of the money and environmental benefits, and the other girls around the world you are helping who are less fortunate.

    I love my ruby cup. It was super easy to get started and for me, it lasts all day or all night. Only thing is I find it quite frustrating to take out, but as it’s my first cup, I guess that will just become easier in time with more practise. (Long nails don’t help!)
    Happy I finally made the change to a cup. No more buying tampons. Oh and ZERO cramps while using. Amazing! Still had a few pre-menstrual cramps but none at all throughout the period. That’s pretty awesome.

    A very well made cup! Only negative thing I say is that is a bit too firm for me.

    I bought the Ruby Cup because I liked that one cup was then getting donated to women and girls who need it. The cup itself is great, although I will only use this one for light days. I’ve had a few mishaps, such as dropping it down the loo but with a Ruby Cup steriliser, no problems (just gross getting it out of the loo haha!) It was difficult to insert the first time (trial run) with some panic when I couldn’t locate it to get it out (long cervix, obviously!) but by the time I got my period, it was manageable. I think it was the wrong size for me because I found when it was at near capacity, I could feel the suction release and then I’d have to rush very quickly to the loo. I prefer for myself the PelviCup, which is a bit softer to insert and better for my needs (over 40, had children, heavy periods).
    But I’d recommend the Ruby Cup to others due to price, quality and it’s commitment to helping others.

    I’m so glad I have converted to a menstrual cup, while it’s a little new/uncomfortable figuring out the ins and outs, I’ll never ever go back to pads or tampons. Ever.
