    Operation

    Unlike panty liners and pads, the menstrual cup is inserted into the vagina, is invisible, and instead of absorbing blood like tampons (irritating and altering the quality of the mucous membrane), collects it. 

    By positioning it inside the vagina, the menstrual cup collects blood directly as it arrives from the uterine lining. It falls into the cup and is thus retained, but remains liquid. 

      

    Positive ecological impact of the menstrual cup

    A woman uses an average of between 10,000 and 15,000 sanitary products in her lifetime (tampons or pads). 

    On the scale of the number of women using these types of protection, the consequences are disastrous for the planet: these disposable products pollute because they are absolutely not recyclable, on the one hand.

    On the other hand, the production of these products also generates pollution, upstream. Indeed, different chemicals are used in order to sterilize the towels, to whiten them...

    All this can be avoided with the menstrual cup! So, a small gesture for us, a big gesture for the planet!

    Can I use a menstrual cup and an IUD at the same time?

    It is recommended to wait at least 2 complete menstrual cycles after inserting the IUD before starting to use a menstrual cup. This delay will allow your body to adapt well to the intrauterine device. 

    Be sure to pinch the cup well to relieve the vacuum pressure before removing the menstrual cup.

    Place the cut as low as possible. 

     

    What material is the menstrual cup made of?

    The cup is molded in US FDA approved medical grade silicone. 

     

    Washing and maintenance

    During menstruation, empty the contents of the menstrual cup into the toilet and rinse it with running tap water before reinserting it again. You do not need to sterilize the diaper between different uses during your period. 

    Between two cycles, pour a small amount of peroxide into the menstrual cup and clean it thoroughly with the brush provided. Pay particular attention to the small openings in the cup. 

    Clean the cup thoroughly before first use.

    Removing the menstrual cup:

    Insert your thumb and index finger until you reach the shaft of the menstrual cup. Place the cup horizontally  and gently compress it to release the pressure. Remove the cup gently from the vagina. Once removed, hold the cup upright so that its contents remain inside the cup. Simply pour its contents into the toilet and wash it well before next use.

     

    Contraindications

    After childbirth, miscarriage or abortion, it is best to wait until the vagina is well restored, as well as the cervix, before putting the cup back. The recovery of the cut will be faster after the miscarriage if it is natural.

    After childbirth, in the event of an episiotomy, the scar must be completely resorbed and the perineum rehabilitated, in order to be able to hold the cup in place

    The cup should not be used outside the menstrual period

    The cup should not be used to collect lochia (postpartum bleeding)

    Menstrual cup and toxic shock syndrome (TSS)

    This subject has never been discussed for a long time, because no case of TSS had ever been observed in the presence of the menstrual cup. It was therefore reasonable to think, empirically, that the cup could not cause TSS.

    In recent years, the file had to be reopened, given the obvious presence of cases of TSS in the presence of a menstrual cup. 

    It is now recommended to empty the cup every 6 hours(and 8 hours at night) in order to reduce the risk associated with any internal hygienic protection (such as tampons and menstrual cups) and respect the recommended hygiene rules.
