First, sterilize the SochCup by boiling it in hot water for 5-7 minutes. Then, SochCup can be used by folding it in several ways. We recommend the C fold and the punch-down fold for SochCup use. It is advised to stay calm and find a comfortable position (like squatting) to insert the cup. Once the cup is inserted into the vagina using one of the recommended folds, it can be removed after 5-6 hours by pinching the bottom of the cup. The contents of the cup can be emptied, the cup can be rinsed, and it can then be re-inserted.

For how long can I wear my SochCup?

You can wear SochCup for up to 12 hours. But we recommend changing it once at least every 8 hours. On heavy flow days, you may want to empty sooner than recommended. When you are using the SochCup for the first time, you may want to empty it every 2-3 hours to check how much you’re bleeding and how often you may need to empty the cup.

How often and how do I clean my SochCup?

SochCup need not be sterilized every single time you remove and reinsert it. However, it is advised that you sterilize SochCup at the end of every cycle. You can do this by boiling it in a pan of hot water for 5-7 minutes. Once this is done, air dry it for a while and place it back in the cotton pouch that it came in.
