JuJu can be used by most women, however, there may be some anatomical differences or conditions such as vaginismus, pelvic organ prolapse, a retroverted uterus or poor pelvic floor tone which may make it too difficult for some women to use a menstrual cup.
If you have any concerns regarding the suitability of a cup in your particular situation, please seek the advice of a qualified healthcare professional.

Toxic shock syndrome (TSS)

Virgins and young women
Most virgins and young women can successfully use a menstrual cup. Please visit our FAQs section for more on cup use and virginity.
