Iriscup is very easy to use after a bit of practice, since the 100% platinum silicone is very soft and flexible. It is positioned slightly lower than tampons and, once in place, is not noticeable at all. The stem of the Iriscup can be trimmed to the correct length taking care not to damage the cup.
The use of sanitary pads and tampons is associated with problems of dryness, itching, irritations, toxic syndromes, etc. This does not happen with the Iriscup, due to the safety provided by 100% platinum silicone.
The Iriscup can contain 3 times more flow than a tampon, however, for the first few days it is advisable to change with the same frequency as you would normally until you find the appropriate frequency. For hygiene reasons it is recommended that you empty the cup at least every 12 hours.
The Iriscup requires very basic care: sterilize it the first day before using it (with the Irisana sterilizing bag for use in the microwave or in boiling water) and do the same on the last day of use to keep it clean for the next month. During your cycle, just wash with water and intimate hygiene soap.
You can simply rinse the cup with water or use wipes such as To Tab Irisana, compressed hypoallergenic and biodegradable towels.
It is recommended that you respect the post-partum quarantine period, because of possibleinflammations in the vaginal environment caused by labour.
The most innovative, comfortable and eco-friendly product for women's intimate hygiene. Made of 100% platinum silicone, the latest generation of medical silicones, certified with the ISO 10993 Biocompatibility, which guarantees that it isn't cytotoxic, does not cause irritation of the vaginal mucosa nor hypersensitivity.
Sterilise Iriscup before first use.
Make sure your hands are thoroughly clean before handling Iriscup.
Iriscup can be inserted sitting, squatting, standing with one leg resting on a surface slightly higher than the other or in the position that is most comfortable for you. You will find the posture that works best for you after the first few times.
The insertion of Iriscup can be facilitated with a water-based lubricant like the one you can find in our Irisana Intimate Range.
Grip the IrisCup with your fingers and press. Afterwards fold it lengthwise in half using fingers of the other hand. Insert it into the vagina obliquely by directing it towards the bottom of the vagina. Once done, release it and it will unfold and adhere to the vaginal wall.
You must empty and wash the cup at least every 12 hours.
Thoroughly wash your hands before removing the Iriscup. Find the most comfortable posture for you and look for the stem or the base of the Iriscup. Pinch the bottom part and pull the Iriscup out. The more relaxed you are, the easier it will be. If the first time proves difficult for removal, try pressing the Iriscup against the vaginal wall with a finger so that air enters faster making it is easier to extract (the holes in the upper part are for air to enter, but this maneuver accelerates the process if necessary).
Pour the contents into the toilet, wash it and reinsert.
You can also clean it and yourself with our To-Tab, compressed bamboo pulp wipes, ready to use as a wet wipe with just a few drops of water.
You should sterilise your Iriscup before its first use and on the last day after each period to keep it clean for the following month. Sterilise it in boiling water (3 minutes is enough) with specific sterilisation solutions or you can sterilise it with our Irisana sterilizing sachets.
During your cycle, it is sufficient to wash with water and intimate hygiene soap.
You can trim the stem of the Iriscup if you find it too long but, be careful, as it will take a few uses to get the hang of it and if you cut it too short the first day you may later discover that it was more comfortable when it was longer. Take special care when cutting not to damage the bottom of the cup.
If you have leaks after insertion, try rotating the cup on itself, holding it by the stem until you notice that it is attached to the vaginal wall. You can also try to bend over and get up a few times so that the Iriscup finds its place or try to insert a finger to check its correct placement.
If none of these tips work for you, then you may not be using the correct size.
You should not use your Iriscup for more than 12 hours without emptying and washing it.
Wash it and sterilise it as recommended. The more you take care of it, the longer it will last.
When necessary, use only water-based lubricants.
Iriscup is not a contraceptive method nor will it protect you from STDs.
Use your own exclusively.
We recommend you contact your midwife or gynecologist if you have any pre-existing conditions.
