2- Find a comfortable position and lift one leg up onto the toilet seat or the edge of a bathtub.
3-Put your index or middle finger into your vagina and try to reach the end of it. the cervix will be where your finger stops. You will feel it soft but firm and rigid.

If you can feel your cervix and your finger only goes in at your 1st knuckle, then you have a Low Cervix.
Medium Cervix.Choose UNIQUE size “M”.
If you can feel your cervix and your finger goes in further to reach the 2nd knuckle, then you have a Medium Cervix.
High Cervix.Choose UNIQUE size “L”.
If you can barely reach your cervix and most of your finger is inside your vagina, then you have a High Cervix.
HOW TO USE MENSTRUAL DISC:
To insert : (1) Squeeze the Lumma Menstrual Disc UNIQUE rim in the middle to form an “8” shape and maintain the string in the front. (2) Insert the disc into the vaginal canal (3) Push the disc to the end until you feel that it’s positioned under your cervix.(4) Push the front of the rim upwards to fix it behind the pubic bone.The top of the silicone string will stay out of the entrance of the vagina.
To remove: Hold the the top of the string and push it out very slowly . The rim of the disc will slip off the pubic bone and lineup with the entrance of the vagina.You just hold the rim and push the disc out slowly and gently.
– Don’t push out the string with excessive strength, it may break.
– If you like you can cut a part of the string to shorten it or you can cut it all and use the disc without the string if you prefer.
