Why should I switch to a menstrual cup?

Collecting > absorbing

Because menstrual cups collect menses rather than absorbing it, you could experience less cramping, more freedom, and less fear of Toxic Shock Syndrome.

All-day protection

Most menstrual cups keep you covered for up to 12 hours at time equaling less frantic trips to the bathroom, and more time living your life.

Mother Earth-approved

Menstrual cups are zero-waste products and last for years. Great for your wallet, even better for the planet.

Flex Cup pro tips

Try different positions

Body positioning can make or break your experience when learning how to insert a menstrual cup. Some people prefer sitting on the toilet. Others will stand with one leg up, or even take it to the shower and rest one leg on the side of the bathtub. You can even squat down toward the floor to open up even more. Whatever works for you works for us.

Questions & Answers

Why is my cup leaking?

While there are a few reasons your cup may be leaking, the first line of defense is to ensure it's sitting low enough in your vaginal canal. When inserting the cup, stop once it's in the lowest position you are comfortable with (about a knuckle deep).


Will I feel the pull-tab?

Because Flex Cup is super soft and was designed to conform to your body, you shouldn't feel the pull-tab at all. If you do, try placing the ring of the pull-tab parallel to the labia, or tuck it up along the side of the cup during wear.


How should I clean my Flex Cup?

Taking good care of your Flex Cup will help to extend its lifespan and keep it clean and fresh for years. Here’s what we recommend: 

During your period, remove, empty, and clean your menstrual cup at least once every 12 hours. Start with clean hands and grab some mild soap or cleanser (like Flex Foaming Cleanser). 

Rinse your cup in cool water first—this will help prevent odor and staining. Then, unthread the pull-tab. Switch the water to warm and add a few pumps of cleanser. Use your fingers to massage the entire cup, including the pull-tab, inside, and outside surfaces, and then rinse. 

Shake off excess water or let the cup air dry before reinserting. If you’re putting your cup away until your next period, make sure it’s completely dry before storing. Store Flex Cup in a cool, dry place in its included pouch. Never store your cup in an airtight container. 

Once every month or so, it’s a good idea to boil your cup to sanitize it. Heat a pot of water to boiling on the stove. Place the cup in the water and boil for 10 minutes, keeping an eye on it the entire time and stirring occasionally to make sure the cup does not come in contact with the sides or bottom of the pot (as that could melt the silicone). Remove from the pot and let the cup cool and dry completely before storing. 

Remember: Never wear Flex Cup if you have a yeast infection or other vaginal bacterial infection. Resume use only once the infection has completely cleared. If Flex Cup was inserted during a yeast or bacterial infection, remove it immediately and dispose of it in the trash. Do not attempt to clean and reuse your cup if it was worn during a vaginal infection.
