How to use a menstrual cup
As easy as one-two-three.
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.

I have only been using it for three days and I already love it. First day I had some leaks and it took some practice to figure out, but today I wore it all day, no leaks and it was really comfortable. I am very pleased with how it is working!
I think I will also try the mini size though, the A size feels a just bit too big like its pressing on my bladder (I've never had a baby and I have been abstaining from sex and masturbation for half a year so I think the mini might be the more comfortable size for me right now).
Yes, it will take 1-2 periods for you to get used to it but when you do, you can't live without! It's a game changer: great comfort (and I thought that tampons were good!), no smells / weird feelings of overflows, waking up in the middle of the night cause you turned the wrong way and there are leaks left and right... It's amazing! There might be leaks on the higher flow days, if you are not attentive to empty it on time, and especially in public bathrooms, you don't always get in a toilet with a wash basin to empty / rinse it , but it's the exception it should not stop you from trying it. THere are days I wear it over 12 hours, cause I get busy or forget to change it /take it off, and that's fine for me. I suggest it 100% to all ladies!
I can't figure out how to use it the best way, and I feel it when I use it. I cut the string at the end, and that helped, but I still feel it when I move. And it's not leak free, I have to use pads or period underwear whit it, and It was kinda the hole point whit the cup so i didn't need to
Quem me dera ter experimentado o copo menstrual mais cedo! Super fácil de inserir, ajustar e retirar, muito mais higiénico, sem odores e até às dores menstruais diminuíram. Tinha algumas perdas no primeiro dia devido ao fluxo intenso, mas é uma aprendizagem e nos próximos ciclos sei que tenho de trocar mais vezes. Fantástico o impacto ambiental em comparação com pensos

1. Eco product no trash
2. No smells from period
3. Easier to use than I thought
4. In general i recommend it 100%
No silly questions

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.
