What is a CUP?

A menstrual cup is a small bell shaped cup used to collect the menstrual fluids.

The cup is usually made of soft high quality medical grade silicone, which is hypo-allergic, flexible and antibacterial.

Manufacturers may have different recommendations for when to replace a cup, but in general they can be reused for up to ten years.

Cups come in many designs, shapes and sizes. It is a personal question which cup to choose and it depends on flow, age, anatomy and more.
