XO Flo or XO Flo Mini?
Generally those with heavier flow, higher cervix and those who have given birth will prefer the original XO Flo. The XO Flo Mini may be best suited for lighter flow, low cervix, a sensitive bladder, or those who haven’t given birth.
Use + Care: You can safely keep your cup in for up to 12 hours at a time. That means no run-ins with public restrooms.
To insert XO Flo, press the "X" sides of the cup together to fold the cup in half, then fold in half again. The rim of the cup will now be held in a "C" shape. Gently insert the cup rim-first into the vagina, angled gently toward the tailbone, and slowly guide it to where it feels comfortable. The length of the cup is worn within the body, though the stem may remain outside of the body. Release your fingers to open the cup. If you would prefer the cup to open a bit more slowly, start by pressing the "o" sides of the cup together, then fold in half again.
If you have a low cervix you can trim the stem, even going so far as to cut it completely off, however, but we’d suggest waiting to trim the stem until you've tried the cup for at least a few days. Often, the initial placement of your cup is not where it ends up and may find that once you get your positioning down, the cup will find its most comfortable place farther up the vaginal canal. You want to make sure you haven't trimmed the stem too far so that it's not difficult to reach.
You will learn how frequently to empty your cup depending on the heaviness of your menstrual flow. After a month or two, you'll become familiar with your own menstrual flow pattern.
When removing the XO Flo, grip the stem as high as possible.
After use, wash your menstrual cup with mild soap and water before reinsertion.
At the end of your cycle, wash and dry the menstrual cup before storing it in the drawstring fabric bag provided. Do not store your menstrual cup in a plastic bag or airtight container.
At the beginning of your next cycle, thoroughly wash your cup with mild soap and water before using. You may also choose to boil the cup in an open pan for up to 5 minutes. Note that prolonged boiling may damage your cup.
