STERILIZE: Submerge your Pistil Cup in boiling water for 3 minutes to sterilize it before first use and monthly.

FOLD: With clean hands, fold your Pistil Cup.

INSERT: Squat or put a leg up, relax your vaginal muscles, if needed, apply a water-based lubricant, and gently insert your Pistil Cup into your vagina until the stem is fully inside. Feel around your Pistil Cup to ensure it has fully opened.

ENJOY YOUR DAY WORRY-FREE: You may wear your Pistil Cup for up to 12 hours LEAK FREE!

REMOVE: With clean hands, squat or put a leg up (preferably over a toilet), use your vaginal muscles to push the cup down, gently squeeze the base of the cup to break the seal, and pull the stem to remove. The seal can be stubborn to break sometimes, so try shifting the cup from side to side.
