Why use a menstrual cup?
Menstrual cups are the most commonly used alternative period product for a reason! They are a healthful and time optimized way to create a more comfortable time of the month.
- No harmful chemicals
The yoni is highly permeable, meaning it absorbs at a very high rate.. Akin to the the mouth and rectum! Anything that comes in contact with the yoni heightens the chance of quickly absorbing into the bloodstream.

How to use
- Wash your hands with warm water and mild soap.
- Fold your cup, and insert into the vagina. You will feel discomfort if inserted incorrectly, so to ensure it is correctly in place, run your finger around the rim. This may take a few cycles to feel natural, but it will quickly become muscle memory!
- Empty and rinse in the sink with warm water and non-fragranced mild soap, once it has been inside of you for the recommended number of hours.
- Re-insert as needed throughout your period.
- After each cycle, boil in water for 10-15 minutes to sanitize.
