Some women might find it intimidating to first try their Uresta; however, after some experimenting with different sizes and upon determining the correct size and position for them, Uresta can be a game changer.
- Wash your hands with soap and warm water and rinse thoroughly.
- It may be helpful to use a water-based lubricant (available in your local pharmacy) to help you with insertion. It is usually helpful to place one foot on a stool or the toilet seat cover to prepare for insertion.
- Inserting your Uresta is not unlike inserting a tampon. Grasp the handle with one hand. With the other hand, place a small amount of lubricant on the tapered end. Separate the labia (the opening or outer lips) of the vagina with one hand and direct the tapered end of Uresta into the vagina with the other.
- Push Uresta into the vagina. It may require some effort to get it into the vagina. Push the top of the Uresta handle with your index finger towards your spine to get it in the proper position inside. Push the handle in until the first knuckle on your finger is at the opening of your vagina.
Once inserted, move around to see if the Uresta dislodges or slides down; if it does, you might want to try the next size up. If you find it uncomfortable, consider repositioning it or try the next size down. It might take some time to find the right fit and position, and might take some time to get used to the new sensation of the Uresta, but you should not feel any pain or discomfort during its use. If you think you require a smaller size or larger size than those included in the kit, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The use of a water-based lubricant can be very helpful for insertion, as there might be some discomfort and pressure when first inserting the Uresta, but there should not be pain. If there is pain, there could be other conditions that need to be examined and treated before using Uresta. Please consult your doctor or pelvic health physiotherapist, or other clinical practitioner for advice and guidance.
