A menstrual cup is a safe and healthy method of menstrual management which has the ability to change a young woman’s life.
The cups are made of surgical grade silicone and can be reused for up to ten years. They are inserted into the vagina to collect, rather than absorb, menstrual fluid. A cup can be worn for up to 12 hours, after which it is simply removed, emptied, and re-inserted!
Menstrual cups are very easy to keep clean, requiring only a very small amount of water. Between uses, the cup is simply wiped with a small towel or rinsed if potable water is available. At the end of her period, the cup is sterilized by boiling in water for five minutes.
