What it is made of? Do I feel it inside when it is inserted?
The menstrual cup is made of medical-grade silicone and like tampon it is inserted into the vagina. It is very soft and flexible and able to adapt to the vagina of every woman. And that is why you won’t feel it inside.
How does it work and how often do I need to empty it?
The cup collects the blood inside the vagina (unlike tampon which absorbs it) and after 4 to 12 hours it has to be removed (depends on the flow intensity) and it is emptied into the toilet. It is reinserted after rinsing with water. Contrary to the opinion of women who have never tried the cup before, the emptying is quick and clean. The menstrual cup is able to collect 2-3 times more menstrual blood than tampon is able to absorb.
How many cups do I need?
You will use one single cup throughout your whole monthly cycle. After your period is over you will easily sterilize the cup and store it safely in the cotton pouch. The cup is then ready for the next period.
