Some anatomical differences or conditions such as vaginismus, pelvic organ prolapse, a retroverted uterus or poor pelvic floor tone, may make it too difficult for some people to use a menstrual cup. If you have any concerns and question regarding the suitability and safety of a menstrual cup in your particular situation, you are advised to seek the advice of a qualified health care professional.
Some people also find one particular brand of cup may work better for them than another.
Menstrual cups work for most people, but unfortunately, we can't guarantee a cup will work for every person. This is due to the nature of anatomical variances, particularly the differences in vagina shape and size. Some people can use almost any cup with ease whilst others may find that one particular type, size or brand of menstrual cup doesn’t work for them, but will find success with another.
Among the cup community, finding the perfect cup which is just right for you is referred to as "finding your goldilocks cup" and knowing your anatomy can help you determine if a menstrual cup will be suitable for you. Anatomical variances to consider include:
Clubbed thumbs (which may make it more difficult to remove a menstrual cup)
Refer to our guide to selecting a menstrual cup for other factors you may wish to consider when choosing a menstrual cup. If you have any gynecological concerns, we recommend you seek the advice of your medical practitioner prior to using a JuJu cup to see if it is suitable for you.
We are unable to offer refunds or exchanges due to purchase error, change of mind or if the incorrect menstrual cup size has been chosen. Please see our Returns and Exchanges Policy for more information.

Yes. As JuJu holds three times more fluid than tampons and pads, you will find that you will need to empty your JuJu less often than you would change a tampon or pad. In the initial stages, while you become familiar with JuJu and if you are concerned about leaking, try using a pad in conjunction with your JuJu until you have confidence in your cup and know how often you need to empty it. As a guide, you can generally wear your menstrual cup for twice as long as you would wear a tampon or pad.

Many people are still able to use the smaller Model 1 post birth however most people find they need to size up to a Model 2 once they have had a baby. Some women also find they may need to switch to a Model 4 if they have lost some pelvic floor tone or their cervix sits lower after becoming.

In Australia, the sale of medical devices, including menstrual cups, is monitored by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). The TGA is a government agency which safeguards public health and safety.
The JuJu menstrual cup was listed on the Australian Registered Therapeutic Goods list in 2011 (ARTG No. 180153). JuJu menstrual cup is also a FDA listed medical device in the USA (Est. No. 3013920287) however registration of menstrual cups is no longer required in either of these countries and in May 2020, the TGA cancelled all menstrual cup ARTG listings as they have deemed menstrual cups to be low risk devices which are classified as exempt goods. Although menstrual cups are no longer required to be listed on the ARTG, Sponsors and manufacturers must still meet the requirements for menstrual cup products set out under Therapeutic Goods Order No.99 - Standards for Menstrual Cups in order for their products to be legally supplied in Australia.
The silicone used in JuJu Menstrual Cup has been independently tested for biosafety and carries biocompatibility and toxicity certificates of compliance. JuJu Cups are manufactured in a cleanroom environment to ISO 13485 standards which govern the manufacture of medical devices.
The newer style JuJu Cups have a thicker stem with nodes, which can be used as trim points. It also has a more pronounce butterfly grip pattern at the base of the cup than the original model.

The original JuJu Cup has a thinner triangular shaped stem and a smoother finish on the base of the cup. Choose this cup if you are an experienced cup user and are comfortable with the removal of your menstrual cup. This style is only available in a Model 2.
We are not able to send free samples.
Unlike tampons and disposable pads, menstrual cups and cloth pads are reusable products that last for many years and the manufacturing cost of these products is considerably more than that of disposables. The lifespan and production cost of making reusable sanitary products makes it prohibitive to send out free samples.
If you have transitioned to using a cup and no longer require your disposable sanitary items please donate them to our corporate partner Share the Dignity who have numerous collection points every March and August.
Alternately, post them into us and we will donate them to charitable organisations and community groups who help disadvantaged and homeless people. Our postal address is;
PO Box 6200
For hygiene reasons, we can only donate products which are individually wrapped (i.e. they can be unboxed or out of the outer packaging but the individual tampon or pad packaging must be unopened).
