Tampon Tribe - Menstrual Cup
This variant is currently sold out
Vegan, totally silicone-free, and made with the most comfortable, highest-quality, medical-grade safe material available, Tampon Tribe’s Menstrual Cup has been designed to be the most effective available. Endorsed by doctors and leading researchers, this Cup will have you wondering why you didn’t make the switch earlier!
Which Size Should I Use?
Medium is recommended for those younger than 25 who have not given birth vaginally (25ml capacity; 43mm diameter; 67mm length). Large is recommended for everyone over 25, or anyone who has given birth vaginally (30ml capacity; 46mm diameter; 66mm length).
What Is It Made From?
Medical Grade TPE. This is used for medical devices due to its high degree of purity: no latex, rubber, PVC, or animal-derived materials. TPE is also regulatory compliant for RoHS, REACH, FDA, Prop 65, and SVHC. TPE is biocompatible and recyclable. It’s super-soft and flexible, and easy to clean.
How Does It Work?
The Menstrual Cup can stay in place for up to 12 hours, depending on your flow. It has rounded edges for comfort, easy-grip handle, and a patented leak prevention design to ensure it stays in place and is easy to remove—without spills! Simply remove, empty, rinse, and reuse.
Tips and Troubleshooting:
The Menstrual Cup should be placed a bit lower than a tampon (it’s normal that first-time users may have some issues at this point). Once inserted, we have a few tips that could help with the sealing process:
• Find the right fold that suits you (there are different folds to try!)
• When inserted, try to find the stem of the menstrual cup and push it up a bit (you can also try to slightly pull the cup down then push it back into place)
• Clench your pelvic floor muscles
• Gently squeeze the bottom of your cup
• Carefully rotate the menstrual cup 360⁰
In order to be sure that the cup has completely opened, we recommend gently running one finger around the base of the cup to check if you can feel any noticeable folds (if yes, the cup is not properly opened). Some people may feel some resistance or a feeling of suction pressure when the cup opens (even a “pop” can be heard in some occasions), but it really depends on the user.
Customers who are already experienced with the use of the cup but struggle with the opening process may be using the wrong size, so it’s really important to verify if you are using the proper one.
Please note that the size guide is a general recommendation applicable to a high percentage of consumers and every body is different, so it may be a case of needing a different size than the one stated on the instructions due to your body's individual characteristics!
