The soft cup unfolds to form a light suction seal, keeping it safely in place.
When placed correctly you shouldn’t feel the cup. Go swim, do sports and forget all about your period.
Even public toilets are no challenge – just use toilet paper and rinse when you’re back home.
Don't just take it from us – here's what our community has to say.
You can live your life like you don't have your period!! it's very hygienic, you don't feel any pain.. just need a little bit of practice to put it well. I absolutely recommend it!
I have been using my cup since 4 years ago and I is the best purchase I have done. I really recommend to buy it.
I forgot my cup at home this time and I was reminded of how it changed my life... no smell, nothing to throw away and saves a huge amount of money but over all during the day I usually totally forget that I’m on my period!!! Must-have, you won’t ever look back, believe me! And me... yeah can’t wait to be back with my cup😅😊
I do have my organicup for almost 10 years already and never used a single tampon/pad ever since! No doubt, it's the best purchase ever, saved me so much money. No nasty dry vagina when pulling out tampon, no feeling like I am wearing a diaper when having a big pad in between my legs. Very easy to use, I don't how I'd live without it, it makes periods so much better.
It happened to be the first cup I've tried and I'm sticking to it 🙌 telling everyone about it!
We usually suggest bringing some bottled water with you or using a disinfecting wipe such as an OrganiWipe in a public bathroom. If you don’t have either, you can simply wipe it clean with toilet paper and clean it once you have access to a sink, at home for instance. But because it holds more than 3 super tampons, most people only have to empty it in the morning and in the evening, in the comfort of their own home.
When inserted correctly, the cup shouldn't leak if it’s not completely full (and presuming you have the right size). The key to a leak free period is to make sure the suction seal is created and that the cup is completely unfolded inside you. After inserting, you should pinch the bottom of the cup (or insert your index finger alongside the cup) and slighlty rotate it until it unfolds without any dents around and until it doesn't move downwards when pulling the stem. This is how you know the suction seal is in place. For more tips & tricks check out our guide 'How to Use a Menstrual Cup' here.
The material of the cup is tested to last for years. The majority of our customers choose to replace it after 2-3 years, but if there's no visible damage to it you can keep using it. We recommend that you replace it if the material starts getting sticky or cracks. Learn more.
Yes, the cup is made from 100% medical grade silicone, which is a material that has been tested for bio compatibility and is safe to wear inside the body. It doesn’t contain BPA or latex. Our menstrual cup is also AllergyCertified and registered with The Vegan Society. Learn more.
The cup can be used with an IUD, but it is important to release the suction seal before removal. We recommend consulting with your gynecologist prior to use and if you just had your IUD fitted, you should wait at least 2 cycles before you start using a menstrual cup. Learn more.
