As you will be wearing your Andro-switch 15 hours a day, remember to clean it daily.

Always wash your hands with soap and water before and after touching your thermal ring.

You will find a link to the complete instructions and the user manual at the bottom of the page. 

CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS

Scrub the thermal ring with a gentle fragrance-free soap and lukewarm water, then rinse it well with clear water to prevent residue from causing irritations. Gently pat dry with a clean towel or soft cloth.

The Andro-switch ring must be washed before and after use during sexual intercourse with soap and lukewarm water to limit STI-transmission risks.

How can I sterilize my thermal ring?

It is advised to sterilize the product monthly. An example of a boiling water method :

Sterilization with boiling water consists of filling a pressure cooker or a large pan with water and boiling it for at least a quarter of an hour, before plunging the ring into it for 5 minutes. This method is simple and inexpensive, but you must be very careful when taking the ring out to avoid burning yourself.

How can I remove stains from my Andro-switch?

Some stains might appear over time. This does not mean your thermal ring is not hygienic anymore, nor that its functioning is impaired.

If you wish to remove the stains, soak the ring in a sterilizing solution (used to sterilize baby equipment and available in pharmacies). Let it soak for the minimum recommended amount of time and respect the manufacturer’s dilution instructions. Rinse generously with clear water. Your thermal ring is ready to be used again.

My thermal ring smells, is this normal?

Your Andro-switch should not have a strong smell. The thermal ring may start smelling if:

  • You keep it much longer than the recommended 15 hours;
  • You don't wash it daily;
  • You boil it in a saucepan that had food residue on the surface.

To remove odours, apply the protocol described above for stain-removal. To remove odours, apply the protocol described above for stain-removal.

If the problem remains, get in touch with your doctor.

Do not store your Andro-switch in a plastic bag or an airtight container.

SPORTS & LEISURE

The Andro-switch thermal ring is ideal if you want to play sports or exercise as maintaining the testicles in an upper position can actually increase comfort. Here are some of the questions we have been asked about using Andro-switch while exercising.

As a rule, anything you can do without the ring, you can do with the ring.

Can you use the Andro-switch while exercising?

Yes, as a general rule, the Andro-switch thermal ring is entirely suited for physical activity.

For all sports practices that may lead to testicular trauma, direct contusion to the testicles, either by a blow such as a knee or kick (contact sport, combat sport), or by receiving a ball or a ball (team sport), consult your doctor before wearing the device. For all sports requiring a medical certificate, consult your doctor before wearing the device:

Can I swim with the Andro-switch on?

Yes, you can swim while wearing the Andro-switch.

The Andro-switch thermal ring is very discreet. You don't have to worry about it showing.

We do, however, advise you to allow enough time to get used to it before you start wearing it confidently while swimming.

Can I use the Andro-switch while traveling?

Andro-switch is made for traveling.

Just one thermal ring is enough, although we do recommend you always have a second one or another testicular lifting device at hand in case you lose it for instance.

Reusable and easy to carry, Andro-switch does not take up any space in your luggage. The thermal ring makes your life easier, whether you’re only travelling with a carry-on for a business trip or backpacking in remote areas of the world.
