If you've used tampons before, you'll be a Cup aficionado in no time. Unlike tampons, cups are designed to collect period flow rather than absorb it and so you might find that you don't have to change your Cup as often as you would a tampon. Moxie cups can hold around 2.5x a the flow of a tampon. Not to mention, these will-last-you-for-years reusables means less waste and impact on the planet. Huzzah!
Cups can take a bit of practice (insertion and removal, mainly - though if inserted correctly, you shouldn't feel you're wearing it), but you know what they say: "practice makes perfect!" So take it slow, find your right fit (and fold) and get acquainted with your new period pal. Here are the basics...
1. Sterilise your cup and pod lid in boiling water prior to use. Rinse the pod base in warm soapy water (full instructions in pack).
2. Dry your cup by placing it it's carry pod. The holes in the back will allow for air flow (you can leave the lid on or off).
3. Use your cup during your period for up to 8hrs at a time. Remove, rinse and re-insert as you need (but at least every 8hrs).
4. Store your cup in it's pod in between uses.
