A bit difficult to start with - can hurt while putting in if you don't fold enough or don't hold strongly. But once you get the technique, it actually feels quite comfortable inside, I stopped noticing it immediately.
I like the idea, I would get the wet ones instead of the dry ones I got. The loop is hard to grasp with small hands.
Menstrual cup in Switzerland
The Mooncup and the Divacup are reusable silicone menstrual cups that replace the use of tampons. The menstrual cups are comfortable, clean and eco-friendly. You can also buy soft tampons especially designed to be worn during sex.
What is a menstrual cup?
The menstrual cup is an ecological, hygienic and economic alternative to tampons and sanitary towels. It can be used instead of these other products during menstruation, in order to collect the flow without absorbing it. The reusable menstrual cup is made of medical-grade silicone, giving it a soft and gentle feel.
How do you wear a menstrual cup?
In order to find that position that is most appropriate for you, try using the menstrual cup before you have your period. When you insert it, you should be either seated or standing. If inserted correctly, i.e. lower than a tampon, you wonít feel it at all and it wonít leak. In order for it to slip more easily inside your vagina, you can hold it vertically and fold it in two. Its conical shape enables easy insertion and the little rod at the tip means that it can be pulled out safely. If the tip causes you discomfort, you can make it shorter using a pair of scissors. When you pull out the Mooncup or LadyCup, youíll need to relax and lightly pinch the sides of the cup, so as to avoid an updraft.
How do you clean it?
The DivaCup has a surface that is smooth all over, making it very easy to keep in good condition. It should be rinsed with clean water, so as to avoid leaving any traces of soap or any other product on it. When your period comes to an end, the menstrual cup must be cleaned carefully using a specially adapted cleaner. You can also put it in some boiling water (for approx 5 minutes) to sterilize it. The menstrual cup can then be put away in its little carry case, away from UV light, so as to avoid it becoming discoloured or causing damage to its hypoallergenic silicone.
How do I choose the right size of menstrual cup?
The menstrual cup is available in two different sizes. Choosing the one that fits you best is easy, because it depends only on your age and on whether you have already given birth or not. For young girls and young women, using a gel will make it easier to insert the menstrual cup.
Where can I buy a menstrual cup?
These menstrual cups are on sale in Switzerland at the official retailer KissKiss.ch! Youíll be able to choose between the MoonCup, the DivaCup or even the LadyCup - all three have been approved and are available in both sizes.
