Menstrual Cup Frequently Asked Questions

How does a Pelvi Menstrual Cup stay in position?

The Pelvi Cup sits comfortably inside your vaginal canal, and its 4 suction holes form a seal between the outside of the cup and the walls of your vagina. This allows for a secure and comfortable fit. When inserted correctly it naturally stays in place, you will not even notice it is there.

Can I wear my Pelvi Cup with an IUD or ring contraceptive? 

Though using your Pelvi Cup with an IUD or contraceptive ring should be no problem, we recommend talking with your health professional before use.

Can teenagers use a Pelvi Menstrual Cup? 

There is absolutely no reason teenagers can’t use menstrual cups. Girls can start using cups when they first get their period if they feel comfortable to do so. We recommend starting with the Pelvi Teen Cup as it’s been specially designed for younger girls. 

How do I clean my Pelvi Cup in a public bathroom? 

If it’s inconvenient to get to the sink in a public bathroom, simply wipe your cup with disinfectant wipes then re-insert. If you prefer to rinse your cup, you might consider carrying a small water bottle in your bag to use on-the-go. The most important thing to remember is to always handle your cup during insertion and removal with clean hands. Once you have access to water rinse and sterilise thoroughly. 

If I do a handstand or lay down, will the blood in the menstrual cup flow back into my uterus?

It’s highly unlikely that the blood collected in your menstrual cup will flow back into your uterus. Menstrual fluid has a more thick consistency, so it doesn’t slosh around inside you, it stays in the cup.

Can my Pelvi Menstrual Cup get stuck or lost inside me?

The menstrual cup will never get lost inside, it may move up slightly making it a bit harder to reach. If you do have problems reaching your cup the 1st the to do is just to relax and breathe so that your muscles do not tense up. Squat and use your abdominal muscles to push down until you can reach the cup.

My menstrual cup has become discoloured or stained, how do I remove the stains? 

Firstly menstrual cups do naturally stain overtime, however it does not make them un-hygienic or not suitable for use. To remove stains you can try soaking your cup in water and a hydrogen peroxide solution 3% -6% which you can get at your local pharmacy or supermarket. Every time you finish using your cup also soak in bi-carb and scrub with a toothbrush.
