Menstrual cup vs tampons

Why use a menstrual cup?

A Vaginal Cup Knows Your Body Better Than A Tampon

The Juju Menstrual cup line has been crafted with  a whole lot of care. We put comfort, health, and functionality first while creating our cups. The cervix menstrual cup can be worn overnight, and usually lasts 2-3 times longer than a pad/tampon (up to 8 hours in fact!). It's great to swim, run, work, exercise, and basically do anything life throws at you with ease.

menstrual cup won't hurt

Will this hurt?

Inserting the vaginal cup should not hurt. However, for first time users, it can feel uncomfortable to push it at the right angle. If you’ve put the menstrual cup in properly, you should not be able to feel it inside you after two minutes of insertion. It usually takes a couple rounds of practice, the good news is that using a reusable menstrual cup lets you get to know your own body so much better. Most users have a  quick learning curve. You’ll be a pro by the time you’re at your third period cycle.

Is it really that easy to insert?

Once you have the hang of the right fold (that works for you) and insertion, it will become second nature. It’s only the first cycle or two that first timers might need to adjust to some practice. Remember, once you feel comfortable with it, you really will be stress-free your entire period cycle!

FAQ
Will my period cup leak?
X
The good news is that when the vaginal cup is properly inserted and you are changing it out every 8 hours or so, the cup should not leak. However, if it does, it is most probably because your cup has not opened up properly. You can try rotating the cup once it is inside to make sure it’s opened up properly. If there is still a problem, you might have to choose the right sanitary cup for your body, age and cervix positioning.
FAQ
Is the cup super messy to use?
X
Not really! If you are a new user, it might take a couple of tries for you to get the hang of taking out your cup smoothly (we recommend being at home the first couple of times you insert/take out your cup). The cup should hold an entire work day’s worth of period blood. Once you’re used to it, you can easily pour out in the toilet and rinse before you reinsert.
FAQ
Can I play sports and go to the gym?
X
Yes, JuJu's soft menstrual cup has no strings, no wings and no leaks, making it perfect for people with an active lifestyle who enjoy sports such as running, cycling, swimming, pilates and yoga
FAQ
Will my cup get lost or stuck inside me?
X
Nope! That’s impossible. Your vaginal walls create a vacuum with the period cup, so sometimes it feels hard to pull out, but just remember to relax your body, angle your body, or try putting one leg up on the toilet/stool while taking it out.
