How To Use My Coo-Wee Urinary Incontinence Device

So, you found us, you're intrigued by our Urinary Incontinence devices, but a big question lingers - how do you use them?!

Before we start, we want to thank you for exploring and participating in the the conversation around female Urinary Incontinence - and for moving away from traditional absorption products; those old-school, bulky and uncomfortable incontinence pads and undies. 

Now - it's time to get into the nitty-gritty of Coo-Wee. So keep an open mind, uncross your legs, and get ready!


Inserting Your Coo-Wee


STEP 1. Wash your hands: Always wash your hands and your Coo-Wee before you insert it with warm water. 

STEP 2. Get comfy: When you’re ready, find a position that is comfortable and relaxing for you. Most women find squatting as if you were inserting a tampon a good start!

Like anything new, the more you relax and practice, the easier it'll become. So take a deep breath, get comfy and get ready. 

STEP 3. Fold your Coo-Wee: You will need to fold your Coo-Wee into a ‘U’ shape. Firmly hold the sides of your Coo-Wee with the locating tip facing down.

With the round end facing towards your pubic bone, insert the Coo-Wee into your vagina. Do not aim straight up, aim back and towards your tailbone as you would with a tampon. 

STEP 4. Insert your Coo-Wee and leave where it's most comfortable: This will be different for all women, however as a guide, you should not feel your Coo-Wee once placed.

If you can feel the locating tip in your vaginal opening, it is not inserted far enough. Finding the right position may take a little getting used to, but as they say, practice makes perfect!

STEP 5. Make sure it has opened: Proper insertion is important. Make sure Coo-Wee opens fully after finding your comfy spot. 

To be sure it has opened correctly simply give your Coo-Wee a small rotation. You can also squeeze the pressure rings (not the locating tip) and pull-down slightly to create the seal.

You may feel a small ‘POP’ when Coo-Wee opens. This is confirmation that it has opened fully. Great job!

Tips For Inserting Coo-Wee

TIP! Use a little water-based personal lubricant on the rim of your Coo-Wee and on your vulva, as it will help it glide…but don’t overdo it! if it gets too slippery it may make it difficult to hold onto. 

TIP! A squatting position can be helpful however, don’t forcibly bear down.    

TIP! Some women prefer to insert Coo-Wee in the shower, while sitting on the toilet or even standing with one leg up on a chair/toilet. 

TIP! Ensure that your fingernails are not too long!

How to Remove Your Coo-Wee

STEP 1. Relax: This step is as important during removal as when you insert your Coo-Wee.

STEP 2. Get a grip: Use the locating tip to get a grip on your Coo-Wee. Now bear in mind that your Coo-Wee may have travelled a little north during the day, but don’t worry, you’ve got this!

A squatting position will also assist to bring Coo-Wee to you.

STEP 3. Exit strategy: Hold the locating tip with your thumb and second finger.

With your index finger extended to be level with the rings, press inward on Coo-Wee to deform the shape, break the seal and remove slowly. 

Tips For Removing Coo-Wee

TIP! Do not use the tip to pull down and remove, this will only strengthen the suction. 

TIP! Pinch the body of your Coo-Wee just below the rings and above the locating tip to help release the suction.
