1. Sanitize

This drawing of the menstrual disc shows the disc being sanitized in boiling water prior to use.

Sanitize your disc before use by boiling it in water for 5-7 minutes. Repeat this process between each cycle.

Wash your disc and hands before
and after each use.

2. Insert

This drawing shows a hand squeezing the menstrual disc, showing the front of the disc.

Squeeze the disc to form a figure 8. The finger-width groove indicates the front of your disc, which should be facing away from your body when it is inserted.

Sit, squat, or raise one leg. Guide the back rim of the disc into your vagina and push the disc back and down with your index finger towards your tailbone, as far as it will comfortably go.

3. Tuck

This drawing shows the anatomy of the body and where the menstrual disc sits within the body.

With that same index finger, tuck the front rim up and behind the pubic bone to position the disc.

If you can’t feel the disc, it is in place properly. To check the position of your disc, stand up, keeping your index finger on the rim of the disc. You can wear up to 12 hours before emptying.

4. Remove

This drawing shows you how to remove the menstrual disc.

First, relax your pelvic muscles and bear down like you are having a bowel movement. Hook your index finger under the front rim of the disc. Then, gently slide the disc out, keeping it horizontal to avoid spills.

Tips & Tricks

This is the menstrual disc on a bathroom counter.
Auto-empty

It’s normal for some blood to empty into the toilet when you use the bathroom–this is simply the pelvic floor muscles doing their job. Ensure the disc is tucked behind your pubic bone after each trip to the restroom.

Easier insertion

Silicone-safe lubricant can help with the insertion process.

When you’re still getting the hang of your disc, try removing it while in the shower.

If you cannot remove your disc, don’t worry, take a break and revisit once you are more relaxed.

Mess-free period sex

The disc's flat fit design and placement allows you to enjoy intimacy without the mess.

What Cora Customers are Saying

Once I read about the disc I knew it was for me. The self-emptying (What?!?!) feature and 12–hour usage time between rinses makes my period a breeze, for the first time in my life.

AMY h.

This is my first period with the disc and already loving. It is kind of intimidating to put in at first but once it is in, you can’t feel it at all. Excited to have something sustainable and money well spent.

LAUREN C.

"I have been a disc user for a few years now, but I never felt like removal went smoothly. When I saw the finger grip on this disc, I had to get it! I did need to use lube for insertion, but removal was a breeze!

BRITTANY E.

I feel like I have so much more control of my period. Especially proud that my money is also contributing to a good cause!

NIKOLY S.

I have dealt with heavy, debilitating periods for over 30 years. This product
is allowing me to live my life on even
my days of heaviest flow.

ELIZABETH H.

I am definitely not worried about leaking. I even went to the gym yesterday and it was fantastic, no leak and I didn't notice a thing. I feel free.

REENA R.

Hot Off The Press

"I was shocked at how easy the insertion process was. It took me a grand total of about two minutes to place it perfectly. I knew because I didn't feel a thing while standing, sitting, or walking around."

"I’ve raved about it to a few of my colleagues already. Tampons no longer exist to me, and my Cup is now on the back burner. I’m living large with this disc. And I truly cannot recommend it enough!"

"This is a really exciting new product innovation from Cora. They’ve taken a common complaint from disc users and addressed it. Removal is one reason many people fear switching to discs."
