That is probably one of the biggest fears of new menstrual cup users. Picture this scenario: you decided to take your LaliCup out and … *dramatic pause* it isn’t there anymore! Well, that was a short-lived cup experience, bye-bye cup, it was nice knowing you.
All jokes aside, it’s impossible for your LaliCup to pass through your cervix so it can never truly get lost inside of you.
Never heard of the cervix before?
Did you know that the cervix literally means “neck of the uterus”? It is the lower part of the uterus and acts as a gateway between the vagina and the main body of the uterus. The cervix also affects the placement of your Lalicup period cup so it will perform its task effectively and without discomfort.
Check the picture below the circled part is the cervix.
|How can you determine the location of your cervix?|
To determine where your cervix sits insert a clean finger inside your vagina. Slowly move your finger deeper past the pelvic bone and so-called „empty space” of the vagina (around 5 cm). After you have passed the vaginal canal with your finger, you will find a round nub with a bump in the middle that (during your menstruation) feels like the tip of your nose – that is your cervix.
So the next time you “can’t find a cup” just relax, take a couple of deep breaths and remember, that the cup didn’t magically disappear.
