Flex Menstrual Disc is Better Than Pads

“Flex was designed to solve many of the problems caused by traditional menstrual products. It doesn’t change the vaginal flora reducing the risk of infections and has not been linked to toxic shock syndrome.”

How Flex Works – 5 Instructions Only!

1. Pinch.

FLEX may look big but it’s actually smaller than a tampon when you insert it. Start by washing your hands and pinching it in half.

2. Insert.

Use your index finger to guide the front edge, tucking it up behind your pubic bone. You shouldn’t be able to feel it at all if it’s in the right place.

3. Wear it for 12 hours.

Swim, workout, have sex, go to the bathroom, sleep, all without having to worry about leaks or changes.

4. Remove.

Always start with clean hands. Take a seat on the toilet and slide your finger up under the front edge of FLEX and pull straight down, keeping it parallel to the floor.

5. Dispose.

Once you’ve removed FLEX, turn the disc upside down to empty the fluid into the toilet, place empty disc in a wrapper and dispose in the trash.

    Thank you for this awesome review. plenty of reviewers report experiencing less pain when using
      menstrual discs instead of tampons. This may just mean that menstrual
      discs, which are super flexible, are simply more comfortable to wear
      than stiff tampons.

    it is just a relief that There haven’t been any serious risks associated specifically with discs,

    Interesting, had never heard of it. I am intrigued. The fact that it is disposable and called Flex, what it is made of? Flex itself, the most environmental fibre on the planet. If you could elaborate on this, you might gain buyers in search for a sustainable solution. I am past the age where I needed them, but my daughter still has the choice.
