“Besides being a more eco-friendly and cost-effective menstrual-care option, one of the biggest draws of using menstrual discs is that they supposedly allow for mess-free period sex.”
“The Cora Disc is so much lighter, slimmer, and more flexible than anything else I’ve tried. Its impact has been profound!”
“Reusables last about 10 years if you take care of them, so you’re just overall creating less waste,” according to Brush (Cora's VP of Innovation)
I saw blood in the toilet when I used the restroom. Is my disc leaking?
Discs have the added benefit of "self emptying" without having to remove the disc, which is ideal for women with heavier flows. Self emptying occurs when you relax your pelvic floor muscles, similar to a bowel movement, so it is completely normal to see blood in the toilet. To ensure your disc is properly back in place, use a clean finger to tuck back into place. You can also do a few kegels to ensure it is back in place.
Can I use my disc while I exercise?
Yes, the disc creates a seal at the base of your cervix to give you a "barely there" feel that allows you to move comfortably throughout the day, even during exercise and swimming.
Does the Disc come in different sizes?
The Patent-pending Cora Disc comes in one size. We chose dimensions of our disc based on inputs from doctors and experts, and created a design that would fit most women's anatomies. Because the disc sits at the base of the cervix and does not rely on suction for placement, it is much simpler to fit than a cup.
Can I wear the Disc during sex?
Yes, the Disc allows for mess-free period sex but is not a substitute for contraception.
What should I do if I can't get the Disc out?
To remove your disc, take a deep breath and relax your pelvic muscles. Bear down as if you are making a bowel movement to push disc downwards. Reach for your Disc and hook your finger on the removal groove to slowly pull the disc out. Be sure to tip the edge up as it exits your vaginal canal to avoid spills. If you are not able to hook your finger onto the disc, take a break for 30 minutes and try again. If your disc has been in for more than 12 hours, please consult your doctor.
How long does the Disc last for?
The disc can last up to 10 years, with proper cleaning and storage care. You can wear the Cora Disc for up to 12 hours but you may have to empty it sooner, depending on your flow.

How to Use
First Things First
To ensure your disc functions properly, sanitize it before use by boiling it in water for 5-7 minutes.
Squeeze the disc to form a figure 8. Sit, squat, or raise one leg. Guide the back rim of the disc into your vagina.
With that same index finger, tuck the front rim up and behind the pubic bone to position the disc.
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 and gently slide the disc out.

Choosing Cup vs. Disc
The Disc and Cup have a lot in common- choosing between the two is up to you. Here are a few key distinctions:
|o||o||Collects blood vs. absorbing it, reducing dryness and irritation|
|o||Sits at the base of your cervix, where size is more universal (one size fits most)|
|o||Can be worn during sex|
|o||Self-emptying (when using the bathroom)|
|o||Uses suction to seal|
How to Clean
Follow these simple steps to ensure your disc is cleaned properly. Thorough cleaning will allow you to get the most out of your disc, and keep it working properly so you can use it for period after period.
- Sanitize your disc between each cycle by boiling it in water for 5-7 minutes.
- After each use wash your disc and hands.
- The Cora Cup & Disc Cleanse is a great pH-balanced option to clean your disc. Always dry your disc completely before placing it in the case.
Auto Dumping 101
How do I auto dump?
Not all users experience auto dumping but for those who do, it can be a great benefit that is unique to using a menstrual disc. Auto dumping (also known as “self-emptying”) occurs when the pelvic floor muscles contract, causing the rim of your disc to momentarily move out of place, allowing excess blood to spill into the toilet. When properly inserted, a disc sits in the fornix and stays in place due to the tucking behind the pubic bone. Since every body is different, everyone's experiences with self-emptying can vary but if you find yourself being able to self empty, then it is an added bonus to discs! Self emptying essentially occurs when the disc untucks itself from behind the pubic bone. You can self empty by bearing down while using the bathroom. What is 'bearing down' you might ask? It is essentially the same movement you do with your muscles down there when you are trying to poop. By bearing down, your disc gets pushed out a bit, causing it to untuck from the pubic bone. This untucking is what allows fluid to spill over into the toilet due to the angle.
How do I prevent self-emptying when doing rigorous activity?
This is a great question! When the Cora Disc is inserted correctly and tucked behind your pubic bone, it should not leak. If you are having a heavier flow day or worried about leaking, we recommend emptying your disc before exercise. For added peace of mind, you may also choose to wear period underwear or a liner as backup.
How do I get the disc back into place after auto dumping?
Once you have emptied some of the content, some users find that the disc pops back into place on its own or by doing 1-2 kegels. Kegels lead to the muscles pushing the disc back up on its own. However, if you are new to self-emptying or want additional peace of mind, we also recommend inserting a finger to ensure it is properly tucked back into place. If you prefer inserting a finger, we recommend taking in a Cora wipe with you to clean off any excess fluid off your hand.
Can you auto dump when you laugh or sneeze?
Always be sure your Cora disc is properly inserted by inserting it as far up as possible and then tucking it behind your pubic bone. You should never experience your disc leaking during the day-to-day or feel like it is slipping down your vaginal canal. Leaks are something we never want you to experience but sometimes a leak can happen here or there if you have a strong cough or sneeze which may cause you to bear down and therefore untuck your disc. Our Perfect Fit disc has a firm rim that is ideal for staying tucked into place, even during rigorous activity. We recommend using a liner or period underwear as backup for added peace of mind.
Discs, at your cervix.
