While tampons and pads absorb natural liquids, contain unhealthy additives, FemaleCup simply collects the menstruation, this way eliminating any possible irritation and dryness. The cup is based on 100% soft medical-grade silicone and it is free for latex and any additives. It helps keeping your pH-balance intact and you will avoid irritation and dryness.
Silicone is a commonly used, man-made material derived from naturally occurring elements, that are durable and easy to clean. The slippery surface of silicone is in fact antibacterial, as the bacteria cannot attach themselves to it. Thus, there is no risk of bacterial infection and it does not upset your vaginal pH balance. There has not been any cases of allergy or skin irritation caused by FemaleCup
Cotton – most would probably answer – but the truth is a bit more complicated. Cotton itself isn’t enough absorbent, so the manufacturers often add synthetic fibers to increase tampons’ absorbency. Not to mention that their clean, ivory color is usually obtained by a bleaching process which uses chlorine dioxide.
FemaleCup brings a healthier alternative for your period and for your wellbeing.
One FemaleCup lasts 10 years! On average, a woman will, in her lifetime, use more than 12,000 tampons or pads. Almost all sanitary pads and tampons are made with cotton, plastics or contain other additives. This is not safe to your body or to the environment.
By choosing reusable menstrual cups you are saving landfills from toxic waste made of disposable sanitary products; and trees that need to be sacrificed to make paper-based products..
A FemaleCup is simple to use, and can be used for up to 12 hours – you just need to empty it 2 times a day. There will be no more uncomfortable feelings as it is based on soft silicone. The FemaleCup has a lifespan of 10 years, before you have to buy a new one. You can use it while you are sleeping, and not doubting if it will leak.
With a FemaleCup you can be prepared for all joyful times, as it enables you to do all kinds of sports. So enjoy, go swimming in your favorite bikini, go riding, dancing, jumping or whatever you prefer, with zero risk of leaking.
How much does it cost when you have the period? Lets make the math:
One pack of pads or tampons cost approx. 3 euros.
If you use 2 packs of pads every period:
2 packs x 3 euros x 12 months: 72 euros per year
FemaleCup costs 41 euros but last for 10 years:
41 euros / 10 years = 4 euros per year
Will you save 680 euros in ten years!

Choosing the right size of your menstrual cup ensures comfort but also minimizes the risk of leakage , as it should fit your individual body anatomy. When deciding on size, consider how heavy your monthly flows are (for very heavy flows choose size B). Just keep in mind that all menstrual cups have a higher capacity than a regular tampon.
You should also look at your body (anatomy), your lifestyle and the level of physical fitness.
As we age, muscles lose their elasticity, also inside the vagina. That is why we recommend
size B for women over 30, but every woman is different . You might for example feel more comfortable with size A if you are physically fit and your pelvic muscles are strong.
As a proof of high quality, FemaleCup is approved by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and by one of the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company SGS.
