Can I Use a Bloody Buddy Cup With a Tilted Uterus?
Most of the time, ABSOLUTELY. But of course there's more to it than that so let's get into it!
First of All, How Does a Bloody Buddy Cup Work?
A Bloody Buddy Cup sits inside the vagina under the cervix collecting your flow. It's a super simple concept! Generally you'll just insert your folded cup, let it open then use the base to push it in a bit more so the vaginal walls can hold your cup under your cervix. As long as your cup can sit below the cervix to catch your flow, you should be set!
What If My Uterus is Tilted??
If you have a retroverted (or tipped/tilted) uterus you'll want to make sure you're pushing your cup into place in the right direction. Knowing where your cervix is during your period can be really important and we went over how to measure its height and where it is in this video.
-The cup fold you use can make a big difference! Feel free to test out a few if you don't love the first one you try. We shared 4 different fold options here.
-Experimenting with different angles and placement positions can be key. Check out these videos for some great visuals!
-Eventually you shouldn't need anything but your Bloody Buddy BUT! Wearing a backup pad, liner or your fave period underwear when you first start using a cup can provide some serious peace of mind as you get to know your body + how to use your Bloody Buddy.
-Practice and patience are gonna be your best friends! We PROMISE it will be worth it!
