How to trim the stem?

Insert the menstrual cup

Take the stem between your thumb and forefinger to feel the desired length (the stem should not be visible outside of the labia).

Keep your nail on the line of the stem where it needs to be cut and remove the cup.

Cut the stem with a clean pair of scissors.

Insert the menstrual cup again to check if the length is correct. Start the procedure again if the stem is longer than the labia.
