Welcome to the Pixie Cup family!
We know you’re going to love your new Pixie Disc!
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.
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.
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.
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, it makes insertion much harder). Next, 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, and 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. (It could take some time to get the hang of it completely.)
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). Keep the disc parallel to 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 it.
Can I use the Pixie Disc if I have a tilted cervix?
Yes, the Pixie Disc can be used with a tilted cervix since it directly hugs the cervix. The insertion process may be harder to master, but you will not regret it once you have it down.
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, no suction is used to keep the disc in place. Unlike a menstrual cup that uses suction to seal 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.
