A menstrual cup is a small flexible cup made of silicone, TPE or rubber that is folded and inserted like a tampon to collect the menstrual fluid from there.
It opens out again inside the body and creates a leak-proof seal. A slight vacuum and the pelvic floor muscles keep it fixed in position. After a period of time, but no longer than 12 hours, the cup is taken out, the contents are emptied into the toilet and the cup is then rinsed in water. The cup can then be inserted again.
Very many women feel restricted by their period to a lesser or greater degree in their daily life. A menstrual cup can provide great relief here and even solve the problem completely.
If several of the following apply to you, the cup could be the right choice for you:
The patent for the menstrual cup was submitted in the 1930s, at the same time as that of the tampon.
