Menstrual Cups

A menstrual cup is a type of feminine hygiene product that is inserted into the vagina to collect menstrual fluid. It is a small funnel-shaped cup made of medical grade silicone or rubber with a stem at the end. The cup seals against the vaginal wall to prevent menstrual fluid from leaking onto clothes. The stem of this female period cup is used for insertion and removal. The reusable vaginal cup is removed, emptied, rinsed, and reinserted every 4-12 hours, depending on the amount of flow. Unlike pads and tampons, menstrual cups collect period fluid rather than absorbing it. At Damozelle, we offer a wide range of such vaginal cups from top-selling manufacturers such as Diva, Lunette, and Gladrags @ attractive prices.


How to Choose the Right Menstrual Cup Size?

Menstrual cups come in a variety of sizes. Smaller cups are ideal for women younger than 30 years of age, who have not given birth vaginally. Larger cups are usually recommended for women over 30 years of age, who have delivered vaginally or have a heavier period. The below-given parameters should also be considered while opting for a particular-sized menstrual cup.

  • Age
  • Length of the cervix
  • Strength of the pelvic floor muscles
  • Amount of the menstrual flow
  • Flexibility and capacity of the cup

You can even talk with your gynecologist for the best assistance.

How to Use Menstrual Cups?

  1. Fold - Fold the cup by pressing its sides together and then folding it in half, making a tight U shape. You can also put a finger on the top rim and press it down into the center to form a triangle. This reduces the circumference of the top rim for easy insertion.
  2. Hold - Use your thumb and forefinger to hold the folded sides firmly in place. Make sure that the curved edge is facing away from your palm.
  3. Insert - Separate the labia gently with your free hand and push the curved edge of the folded cup into the vaginal opening. Make sure that the tip of the stem is no further than a 1/2 inch into the vagina.
  4. Seal and Rotate - Grip the base of the cup and turn it 360 degrees in either direction. This will create a good tight seal against the vaginal wall.
  5. Removal - To remove the female period cup, gently pull the stem until you reach the base of the cup. Then release the seal by pinching the base of the cup and continue to pull down to remove it. After removing it, empty its contents in the toilet, wash it in warm water, and reinsert it.
