What exactly is a menstrual cup?
This menstrual cup from De Groene Cup is a flexible cup of certified silicone, a kind of inverted cup that you wear internally.
So like a tampon. With the difference that the menstrual blood is not absorbed, but collected. There are two types of cups:
reusable cups and disposable cups. The De Groene Cup is a reusable cup. You can clean this reusable cup in between and then
With one De Groene Cup you can manage your entire period. And if you use and care for it well, it will sometimes last up to ten
Menstrual cups do not absorb and are therefore much healthier than regular tampons. In addition to all other benefits, many
women also experience shorter and less heavy periods. A menstrual cup once inserted can accommodate about 20 ml of
menstrual flow. During normal menstruation, an average of 30 - 60 ml of blood / fluid is released. The De Groene Cup can be
held for 10 to 12 hours at a time before it can be emptied, cleaned and reinserted. We therefore recommend that you empty
your reusable menstrual cup about 2 to 3 times a day.
How to insert De Groene Cup
When you have never seen a menstrual cup, then you may be shocked by the shape and how it should fit inside your body. But
actually that is not necessary at all. The menstrual cup is made of medical silicone and therefore it’s soft, flexible and adapts
easily to your body. And in your body is enough space for a menstrual cup. It is important to know that if you are well
acquainted with your own body and are confident that you can insert the De Groene Cup and take it out later, you can relax
more. The code word for easy cup use is: Relax! and the rest will - almost - go automatically.
There are quite a few folding methods, but they all come down to the same thing: making the top of the "cup" as small as
possible to facilitate insertion. The most preferred option is the C: double-fold lengthwise and then double-fold again. You
can insert the cup moist or dry. It's a matter of trying out what suits you best.
Take your time. Inserting a menstrual cup takes a little longer than inserting a tampon. You will reclaim that time later; after
all, you don't have to change yourself as often.
