A lot of friends who I have turned on to The Keeper or Moon Cup have had trouble using the cup at first. There should be no problem if you do it right, so I hope this little instructable will help as this is a very sustainable solution to our monthly blessing.

Step 1: Before Using The Keeper
This piece is important because if it is too long it will be uncomfortable, but if it is too short or cut off completely it will not be as easy to get a grip on to remove the cup.
One of my friends cut this piece off entirely before using it, this can be scary because, especially for a first time user you will have to push down with your muscles to help to push the cup out far enough to get a grip on the bottom of it. With the little piece sticking out it is easy to grab and pull down on.
So just cut off enough so that you can still get a good grip on it, but will not get poked by it. Start cutting off less rather than more and see how it feels.
