    cup instructions

    How do I insert a cup and what fold should I use?

    We recommend the C fold if you are having a hard time getting the cup to “pop” open. The punch-down or the triangle fold are best if you have a smaller opening or experience pain with inserting tampons. The C fold is the most popular and works for most women. Learn more about cup folds on our blog.

    Why is my cup leaking?

    If your cup has fully opened and it is still leaking, you probably need a bigger cup. If you are having trouble getting your cup to open and you have tried all of our recommended tips, then you likely need a smaller cup.

    What if I can’t reach my cup when I try to take it out?

    If you’re having trouble reaching your cup, relax your muscles, squat, and try to grab the base of the cup to break the seal. Read how to remove a stuck cup on our blog.

    Why is my cup sliding down or falling out?

    If your cup is sliding down, you may need a bigger size. However, it’s also possible that you have weak pelvic floor muscles. Learn how to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.

    How often should you sterilize your cup?

    We recommend sterilizing your cup before and after each period. If you are prone to yeast infections, then sterilizing your cup daily is recommended. You can sterilize your cup by boiling it on the stove, or by using our steamer or UV sterilizer. Learn more about sterilizing your cup on our blog.

    How can I get rid of cup odor?

    Maintain a good habit of cleaning and sterilizing your cup. If your cup has a weird smell that won’t come out with regular cleaning, you can try a vinegar lemon rinse or sunbathing your cup. Learn more about removing cup odor on our blog.

    Can I use a cup with an IUD, Nuvaring, or any other inserted birth control?

    Yes! You can use a menstrual cup with an IUD. Read more on our blog.

    How long do Pixie Cups last?

    Our cups can last up to 10 years with proper care.

    Why did my stem break?

    Without proper care, the silicone will break at its weakest point, the stem. Also, removing the cup by tugging on the stem without breaking the seal will cause extra stress and may cause the stem to tear or break.

    Size is not right? Experiencing discomfort? Not happy?

      Why using a menstrual disc will change your life

      Why using a menstrual disc will change your life

      How to insert

      View video tutorial

      Relax. Always make sure you’re relaxed and not tense, as your body will be tight and that will make insertion difficult.

      Pinch. Pinch Pixie Disc to form a figure eight.

      Insert. You’re going to want to position yourself so your cervix is easy to reach. This is best achieved by sitting on a toilet, one leg up on the shower ledge or in a squatting position. Use your pointer finger to insert the rim of the cup and push as far back as is comfortable. Angle the cup back and down so the rim of the cup tucks around the backside of your cervix.

      Tuck. Move your finger to the front rim, and push up, tucking the rim behind your pubic bone. This will secure the Pixie Disc and catch your flow.

      How to remove

      View video tutorial

      Relax and pull. Relax your body, and remember Pixie Disc is the only period disc on the market with a removal pull-string! Feel around for the thin silicone string and gentle pull. You should feel the disc dislodge. If you have cut off your string, insert your finger and hook it behind the front rim of the disc

      Dump and wash. Pour your menstrual fluid into the toilet, wash your cup thoroughly with Pixie Wash, and reinsert. If it’s not possible for you to wash your cup, like you’re in a public restroom or camping, you may reinsert as long as your hands are clean. We recommend not going more than 24 hours without actually washing your disc, however. This will keep bacteria, odor and staining at bay.

      How to clean

      Sterilize. Before and after your cycle, be sure to sterilize by either boiling your disc on the stove, in a microwave safe container with water or in the Pixie Cup Steamer
      Cleanse. Be sure to wash your disc every time you remove it, prior to reinserting. Same goes for your hands! Pixie Wash is the perfect pH balanced wash that is perfect for your body and your disc.

      FAQs

      How much does the Pixie Disc hold?
      Our reusable disc holds 35ml of fluid or the equivalent of 3 super tampons, the same amount as our XL Pixie Cup!

      How does it work?
      The disc is held in place by the pubic bone, right below the cervix, directly and securely collecting your blood. It will rest at a slight diagonal angle inside the body.

      How do you insert it?
      1. Squeeze the middle to where it looks like a figure 8
      2. Lubricate the top of the disc
      3. Sit on the toilet, squat, or hike one leg up (very difficult to insert while standing)
      4. Make sure your pelvic floor muscles are completely relaxed (if tense at all, it makes insertion much harder). Insert the disc with the tip pointing down towards the ground and gently glide it back as far as it will go.
      5. Using a finger, tuck the rim behind the pubic bone.

      Do these work for a short cervix?
      Absolutely! These are ideal for those with a short cervix since they directly hug the cervix. However, you may want to trim the stem off. The stem makes these amazing for those with a high cervix but won’t be necessary for a very low cervix.

      How to remove it?
      This is where the stem design comes in handy! Relax your pelvic floor muscles (this is a MUST), gently pull the stem to lower the disc down to where you can easily reach it, carefully place a finger under both sides of the rim of the disc to glide it the rest of the way out, then dump the contents into the toilet. (This could take some time to completely get the hang of it.)

      How to remove it without a stem?
      Use a finger to find the rim, then “hook” your finger under the rim and pull down horizontally (sort of like pulling out a drawer). Try to keep the disc parallel with the floor to avoid emptying before you’re ready.

      Is it self-emptying?
      Yes, the Pixie Disc is self-emptying when using the bathroom because your pelvic floor muscles relax. However, this feature tends to work for some and not for others. It depends on the person.

      Can I use the Pixie Disc if I have a high cervix?
      Absolutely! The stem design makes this much easier since you won’t have to reach the disc cup body to remove.

      Can I use the Pixie Disc if I have a tilted cervix?
      Yes, the Pixie Disc can be used if you have a tilted cervix since it directly hugs the cervix. The insertion process may be a bit harder to master, but once you have it down, you will not regret it.

      Can the Pixie Disc be used for mess-free period sex?
      Absolutely! You will want to trim the stem off first.

      HSA & FSA eligible?
      Yes! The Pixie Disc is eligible for HSA or FSA.

      Does the Pixie Disc use suction?
      No, there is not any suction used to keep the disc in place. Unlike a menstrual cup which uses suction to seal in your vaginal canal, the Pixie Disc is held in place by your pubic bone.

      Can I use a menstrual disc with an IUD?
      IUD users with a low cervix can still use menstrual discs. You may even find them easier to insert and remove. Just make sure your disc stays tucked behind your pubic bone during use, and be gentle when pulling it out

      Size is not right? Experiencing discomfort? Not happy?

        Does Pixie Cup Gel Wash replace the need to sterilize my menstrual cup/disc?

        No, Pixie Wash is meant to be a quick cleanser for your cup or disc. It does not replace the need to sterilize your cup/disc before and after your period. To sterilize your cup or disc, you will want to boil it in water or use our Pixie Cup Steamer or UV Sterilizer.

        What are the ingredients?

        • Distilled water
        • Soap nuts extract: a cleansing agent that is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory
        • Coco-glucoside: a natural cleansing agent derived from coconut sugar
        • Honeysuckle extract: antibacterial, plant-based preservative
        • Khu-seng extract: anti-inflammatory and anti-irritation
        • Amur cork tree extract: conditions the skin and is anti-inflammatory
        • Food-grade sodium chloride: softens and boosts cleaning performance
        • Corn extract: purifies and soothes
        • Lactic acid: natural preservative
        • Rice bran extract: cleanses, softens, and moisturizes skin
        • Olive oil: provides vitamin E and softening properties
        • Menthol: cooling and refreshing agent
        • Citrus extract: adds a refreshing scent
        • Xanthan Gum: a thickening agent

        Can you use Pixie Cup Gel Wash on other products?

        Absolutely! Pixie Wash is gentle and all-natural, so you can use it to wash just about anything! You can also use it as a personal hygiene wash, or even a face wash!

        Is Pixie Cup Gel Wash gluten free?

        Yes!

        Is Pixie Cup Gel Wash hypoallergenic?

        Yes, it is made from 100% all-natural, gentle, plant-based ingredients and is also pH-balanced, making it safe for both you and your cup/disc!

        How do you use Pixie Cup Gel Wash?

        Rinse your cup/disc with cool water and apply cleanser. Rub the cup/disc with your fingers until all residue is gone.

        Fill the cup with water and cleanser, place your palm over the cup to create a seal, and SQUEEZE! This forces water and soap to exit through the suction holes around the top, so you get those clean too.

        Is Pixie Cup Gel Wash vegan and cruelty-free?

        Yes, it is vegan and cruelty-free.

        Is Pixie Cup Gel Wash pH balanced?

        Yes!

          What vitamins are good for PMS?

          What vitamins are good for PMS?

          We’ve been told PMS is just part of being a woman, but there are a lot of things you can do to alleviate PMS symptoms, starting with taking a good PMS vitamin.

          PMS symptoms are common, but not normal

          PMS symptoms are common, but not normal

          85% of menstruating women in the US experience PMS symptoms, but PMS is not “normal.” PMS is caused by hormone imbalances and can often be improved by lifestyle changes.

          Self-care during your period and why you really need it

          Self-care during your period and why you really need it

          As women, our bodies endure a lot. You should probably start every single day with patting yourself on the back. You do hard things! Half the time you don’t even know it. Through our whole menstrual cycle (25-40 days) a lot is happening. There are peaks and valleys...

          Anxiety and Your Menstrual Cycle

          Anxiety and Your Menstrual Cycle

          Do you ever feel like there are some days when anxiety will sometimes spring up and attack you and it’s harder than usual to defeat it?
          If you were to track your anxiety you might likely find that the increased times follow a somewhat monthly pattern. While this may sound strange, anxiety, along with a lot of other symptoms, can rise and fall with the hormonal changes of your period!
          It all has to do with your menstrual cycle.

          Benefits of Using a Menstrual Cup

          Benefits of Using a Menstrual Cup

          Many women are switching to menstrual cups because not only are they better for the environment, but also for health + wellbeing! Continue reading to learn more about the revolutionary period care and the benefits of using a menstrual cup. What is a menstrual cup?...

          How do I know when I need to replace my gel pads?

          Pixie Gel Pads can be reused until they no longer stick to your body. Typically one set of gel pads should last about 8-10 uses when they are stored and cared for properly. The better they stick to your skin, the stronger the electrical current will be, and the better Pixie Relief will work. So for optimal pain relief, you will want to change the gel pads more frequently.

          What are Pixie Gel ingredients?

          Pixie Gel ingredients include:

          • Crosslinked Acrylic Resin
          • Polyhydric Alcohol
          • Electrolytic Salt
          • Additives (stabiliser etc.)
          • Deionized Water

          How many Pixie Gel Pads are in each pack?

          Each replacement pack contains 20 replacement pads (10 pairs total).

          How long will each Pixie Gel set last me?

          This will differ for each person! Typically one set of gel pads should last about 8-10 uses when they are stored and cared for properly, so this pack of 10 sets could last for up to 100 uses!

          To extend the stickiness of the Pulse Pads, ensure that your skin is clean and dry before use. This includes being free of oily substances such as lotion or shave cream.

          Where do I place my Pulse Pads?

          In order to have the best relief possible, the Pulse Pads need to be placed on your lower abdomen or lower back, so your Pixie Relief can target the nerves that supply the sensory fibers to the uterus.

          Remove the clear liner and place the Pulse Pads on your lower abdomen or back at least 4 inches (10cm) apart. If the Pulse Pads are too close together, your Pixie Relief will not work properly.

          What if the sticky gets in my pubic hair?

          Don’t stress if part of the Pulse Pad touches pubic hair -- the gel is gentle and won’t pull hair out. However, try to avoid placing Pulse Pads over a large area of hair. This will prohibit a secure anchor to the skin, diminishing the strength of the current.

          Do unused Pixie Gel Pads expire?

          Pixie Gel Pads have a shelf life of 2 years when they're properly cared for. Make sure to store them in a cool, dry space

          Can Pixie Gel Pads work with other TENS units?

          These pads are best purchased if you are already using 60mm circular electrodes as they do not include the silicone pulse pads or wiring (although these items can be purchased from pixiecup.com).
