Our tried-and-tested tips, direct from the Moxettes @MoxieHQ...
Here's how to ensure your trusty planet friendly(er), reusable period pal lasts you years and years.
Having some trouble removing your menstrual Cup, Moxette? Stress less - we've got some fixes for that.
Leaks are super common, particularly if you're new to using cups. Here's why your menstrual cup might be leaking - and what to do about it...
Menstrual cups (or period cups) are inserted into the vagina to collect period flow - unlike tampons, which absorb flow. Period cups stay in place by forming a suction seal around the walls of the vagina. To remove your cup, you reach in and pinch the base slightly to release the seal, then gently guide it out. Empty your cup out, rinse it in water, and re-insert it as you need throughout your cycle. That's right, they're reusable! They will last years, if properly cared for.
Australian regulations state that menstrual cups shouldn't be worn for longer than 8 hours at a time, to help reduce your risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS)* - we recommend wearing an overnight pad, instead (in case you oversleep).
*You read that right: Menstrual cups actually still carry the same risks associted with Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS).
If you have your period and feel comfortable with insertion, you can use a menstrual cup as soon as you feel ready. Your body, your period, your choice, Moxette.
Yes you can - menstrual cups are inserted into the vagina, but you pee from your urethra, a different, and much smaller hole that's a little further up. You may just want to check the cup is still in the right place afterwards though, as sometimes the pushing motion of your bowels can push the cup down your vaginal canal.
The key to removing your cup is releasing the suction and letting some air back in - so whether that's pinching the base or inserting a finger to collapse the side - do whatever works easiest for you. Sitting in a squatting position can help you to reach it easier, as it helps to shorten the vaginal canal and lower the cup. In any case, don't pull the toggle! If it's really stuck, see your Doctor or visit the ER as soon as possible and they will get it out for you. For more info on what to do if you feel like your cup is stuck, check out our handy 'how to' guide.
