Step by Step

It can take a couple of cycles to find your rhythm with nixit! We know, we’ve been there too. The more relaxed you are, the easier insertion & removal will become.

What is nixit?

nixit is a reusable menstrual cup that collects, rather than absorbs, your period

Where it sits

  • nixit
  • Tampons
  • Other cups

nixit sits above the vaginal canal - different to a tampon or traditional cup and holds itself in place naturally. No scary suction required

Tampons sit in the vaginal canal and absorb your flow

Traditional menstrual cups sit in the vaginal canal and use suction to stay in place

Month 1

Try inserting nixit before your period, so that you can get some practice with insertion and removal. Remember the three steps - insert, tuck and check.

Use nixit overnight or on lighter days.

Use a pad or a sanitary towel as back up and to give you some confidence.

Month 2

Try using nixit for your entire period. Always remember to insert, tuck and check.

Still use back up pads or sanitary towels if you feel you need to.

Empty nixit regularly so that you can get used to your flow and work out how long you can leave it in for at a time.

Month 3

By now, you should have a good idea of your flow, so you can leave nixit in for longer stretches on lighter days.

You’ll be so comfortable using nixit, that you may forget it’s there. Always remember to empty it at least every 12 hours!

Yes, you heard me right. Perfect. Sure it does take some getting used to but after decades of pads and tampons this is Life Changing.
