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.

Péssimo! Já se passou um mês desde a minha compra e ainda não a recebi e muito menos uma justificação plausível!
I have been using AllMatters (before OrganiCup) between 2018-2023, much longer than the recommended time, tbh I didn't put that much effort in cleaning it. But after so many years, it wasn't hygienic any more, so I had to change.
I do not even attempt to calculate how much money I saved (it's a lot!). I lived in comfort, not needing to change tampons several times a day etc. This is still not a 100% perfect solution, and sometimes I have a security tampon or a pad or during workouts the cup might leak a bit (especially during yoga or running). But it's 100% better than the standard hygiene products.
I also bought the underwear, which is very nice, using it mostly as an additional protection or on the last 2 days of my period. I can also totally recommend it.
Life changing, truly a different period-experience. Could never go back to two years ago when I was still using pads or tampons!

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.
