Everything at a glance Silicone menstrual cup size S 1 unit

As a rule, all menstruators* have the same problems: Besides such fun things as cramps, pain, nausea or lack of energy, we also have to buy tampons and pads every time, which turn our intimate area into a dry desert and hurt the wallet at the same time. And then there is always that fear of leaking anyway. So in an average lifetime of around 450 cycles, you use thousands of tampons and pads - all disposable. Waste, pain and cost? Not with us! We say: period products should not be luxury products! That's why we started looking for a more sustainable and cheaper alternative to tampons, pads and the like and now proudly present to you: our menstrual cup.

Menstrual cup - what is that?

Our menstrual cup is made of 100% medical silicone - made in Germany. It is BPA-free and also suitable for you if you have a latex allergy. During your period, you insert the cup into your vagina and your period blood is collected in a small cup. At the end of the cup is a handle that can help you remove the cup after use, after you have released the vacuum by gently squeezing the cup. The cup creates a vacuum that ensures that nothing can leak out. So you are well protected for up to 8 hours, whether at home or on the road. We admit: at first, the menstrual cup looks a bit strange. This cup is supposed to fit comfortably down there? Don't worry, before you insert the cup, it is folded. We also offer it in two comfortable sizes, S (this one) and M. You can find all the information you need about using it in our FAQs.

The comparison: advantages and disadvantages of the menstrual cup

About 15 % of menstruators in German-speaking countries already use the period cup, and you'll soon be convinced too! The cups have many advantages compared to conventional disposable period products: With careful care, our menstrual cup can be used for years! This means less waste, making it a great way to protect the environment and be more sustainable. Your wallet will also be happy, because even though the cup is more expensive than a tampon at first, it is a much cheaper option in the long run. In addition, it has less of a negative effect on the vaginal flora than tampons, because no liquid is absorbed and the vagina is not dried out. This has two big advantages: Firstly, your intimate area no longer feels like a bleeding desert and you can use the cup even before your period to feel safe! This way you are protected from day one and don't have to expect any bloody surprises. The only disadvantage: as a beginner you need some time and practice. Especially for the first few times of inserting and removing the pads, you should take your time, be patient and try everything out calmly. But as soon as you have found your own technique, it will run like clockwork. Until then, it's worth taking a look at the FAQs, as we've written everything in detail for you, from insertion to washing out!

Due to the strong impact of external factors such as wind, weather, climate and natural events on the harvest, we are refusing long-term cross-harvest contracts with our producers.

What is a menstrual cup?

There are many terms for the menstrual cup: Menstrual cup, period cup, menstrual cap, ladycup, menstrual bell or even mooncup. Ultimately, however, they all mean the same thing: The menstrual cup is a cup that is usually made of silicone, medical grade plastic or latex and is a sustainable alternative to period products such as tampons, pads or period underwear. It consists of a kind of cup in which the period blood is collected. At the end of the cup there is a ball, a small ring or a handle that you can use to remove the cup after the vacuum has been released. During your period, the cup is inserted into the vagina and left there for several hours.

What is special about the menstrual cup from KoRo?

Menstrual cups are currently very trendy, but also very expensive when you compare the sales prices with the manufacturing costs. We at KoRo think: Period products should not be a luxury products! That's why we offer you a high-quality product at the best price. Our period cup is made in Germany and consists of 100 % medical silicone. It is particularly easy to fold and therefore easier to insert. You can also use it without any problems if you have a latex allergy. The cups are available in dark blue and red-purple so that discolouration is hardly visible. In addition, every menstrual cup comes with a cotton pouch as a little goodie, so you can easily carry your cup around.

What do I need to know before I use it?

You've got yourself our menstrual cup and are ready to try it out for the first time? Before you use it for the first time, you should boil your period cup once. Simply place the cup in a pot of boiling water for 5-20 minutes. If you like, you can also add a little vinegar - this prevents deposits and discolouration if the water is hard. If you're nervous about using it for the first time, you can practise folding and inserting it before you get your period. Unlike tampons, this is not a problem. This way, you learn when the menstrual cup fits properly before the 'real thing' and are prepared for your next period! <3

Application: How do I insert the menstrual cup?

1. Very important: First of all, wash your hands! Your body is a temple and you can't go in there with dirty fingers. 2. Find a relaxed position for inserting the menstrual cup. This can be standing up, sitting on the toilet or squatting down. Alternatively, you can place one foot on a small elevation. Before inserting the cup, moisten it with a little water. 3. Breathe in and out in a relaxed manner and fold the cup using your favourite folding technique (see FAQ point: "How do I fold the menstrual cup correctly?"). 4. Then slowly insert it into the vagina and towards the cervix. How deep you insert it is your personal preference. As a general rule, you should not insert the cup as deep as a tampon. However, the stem should no longer be visible. Tip: If inserting the cup hurts or feels uncomfortable, you can lubricate the entrance to the vagina with a little lubricant. 5. Then slowly let go and the cup should pop inside you (listen for the sound). If you are unsure whether it has unfolded, grasp the stem and gently move it a little. As soon as it is properly seated, a vacuum is automatically created, which ensures that nothing can leak out. In addition, it should then hardly be felt. Don't worry if it doesn't work right away and take the time and try as much as you need. You can also use pads or panties, especially in the beginning, so that nothing goes wrong.

Application: How do I fold the menstrual cup correctly?

There are various folding techniques you can use. It's best to try different ones to find the one that works best for you. The only important thing is that the menstrual cup unfolds and pops open correctly. The most popular folding techniques are the C-fold ("heart fold"), the S-fold ("the cobra") and the punchdown fold ("the shell"). We could write you a long written instruction about these folds, but it is easiest and most understandable if you simply watch a video. Then you can follow along step by step.

How long can I wear the menstrual cup?

That depends on how heavy your bleeding is. As soon as you notice that the menstrual cup is full, you should of course change it (you usually notice this - literally). However, you should change the cup after eight hours of use at the latest, so that everything stays nice and relaxed and hygienic. If you forget to take it out or leave it in for too long, that's not usually a problem. However, if you don't feel well afterwards or are worried, talk to your gynaecologist about it. Theoretically, our cup does not "break". Thanks to its high-quality and durable material, you can use it for up to 10 years! And, very important: we know it can sometimes happen quickly, but always remove the cup before sexual intercourse!

Application: How do I remove the menstrual cup correctly?

1. If your menstrual cup is full or you want to take it out and change it, first wash your hands thoroughly. We don't want dirt in our sacred halls! 2. To take it out, sit down on the toilet, squat down or get in the shower. 3. Take a deep breath and relax, then feel for the cup with your fingers and press against the side of the cup with your index finger to release the vacuum. It is important that you do not pull on the cup without releasing the vacuum, otherwise you can increase the vacuum even more. 4. again, don't panic if you can't get a good grip on the cup or it doesn't work straight away. Try to relax and push it down with your pelvic floor muscles. The cup can't slip too far down your body, so take a deep breath and try again after a few minutes.

How can I clean the menstrual cup properly?

Congratulations, you have successfully used it for the first time! After removing the period cup, you can empty the contents into the toilet or down the drain. Then simply rinse under cold water. Also make sure that the small holes at the top are clean. They ensure that the vacuum works properly. If you want to use them again afterwards, you can put them back in now. If you are past your period (hooray!) or have switched to an alternative period product, please boil them in the saucepan as you did before using them for the first time (alternatively, you can add a little vinegar again) and then put them in your stylish cotton bag. Don't forget to wash your hands! :)

What do I do if the menstrual cup won't come out?

Your most important task: stay calm and take a deep breath! The cup can't slip out of reach, so there's no need to worry at first. The menstrual cup holds so well because it creates a vacuum in your vagina with the help of the circular opening. If you can't get a grip on the cup, use your pelvic floor muscles: If you press firmly, the cup will slide down further. Then gently push the handle back and forth with your hands and press in lightly on one side with your index finger. As soon as the vacuum is released, you can slowly pull it out. You've done it! If it doesn't work immediately, just wait a few minutes and try again later. If nothing works at all, please go to your gynaecologist. They can easily take it out for you.

What material is the KoRo menstrual cup made of?

Our menstrual cup is made of 100% medical silicone Made in Germany. Unlike other types, this is more flexible and very durable. Our Ladycup is still also suitable for you if you have a latex allergy!

Which size is right for me?

We offer you sizes S and M for our cups. There are several things you should consider when choosing. Size S is perfect for you if you have: - light to medium bleeding - strong pelvic floor muscles - low or deep cervix Conversely, this also means that you should use size M for: - heavy bleeding - weaker pelvic floor muscles - high cervix For orientation: Our size S is about 40 mm in diameter, size M 43 mm. Sometimes, as with tampons, you may need to try different cups and sizes before you find the right one for you. But don't let that discourage you, it's perfectly natural.

What if my menstrual cup smells funny or gets discoloured?

Even if you take good care of your menstrual cup, discolouration or odours can still occur. Discolouration comes naturally from menstrual blood. The good news is that our cups are not transparent, but dark blue and red-purple. This makes the discolouration almost invisible! Should it still happen that the cup discolours or smells, baking soda is your friend and helper! The next time you sterilise in boiling water, simply add a teaspoon to the pot and let it boil out.

Can anyone use the menstrual cup?

The answer to this question is no. Even though the menstrual cup is super practical, it is not suitable for everyone. Mothers who have recently given birth should be especially careful. A menstrual cup should never be used before the discharge has dried up. It is also possible that you will need a different cup size afterwards. In rare instances, it can also happen that menstruators have weak pelvic floor muscles, which means that the cup does not fit properly. In both cases, we advise you to consult a doctor.

Can I use the menstrual cup even if I am using the IUD or copper chain?

The following applies: Make sure to ask your gynaecologist. It is possible to use the menstrual cup in combination with the IUD or copper chain, but opinions and experiences are divided on this subject. In rare cases, the contraceptive can slip out of place due to the negative pressure. An individual discussion is therefore very useful.

Is the menstrual cup also suitable if I am still a virgin?

Yes, you can also use a menstrual cup if you still have an intact hymen or are still young. In this case, we recommend our size S. However, please talk to your gynaecologist about this, as he/she knows you and your body best.

Can I use the menstrual cup when I am travelling?

It is also no problem on a plane, on holiday or when camping. Since you can use the cup longer than conventional tampons or pads, it is often even an advantage. The only challenge are public toilets where the sink is not directly in the cabin. Just take your water bottle with you and rinse out the cup with the water above the toilet. When cleaning with toilet paper, make sure that there are no paper particles left on the cup when you put it back in. Otherwise, simply stow it away in your practical cotton bag. Wash your hands and you're good to go again!

Is the menstrual cup hard or soft?

Our menstrual cup has a hardness of 50 ShA. It tends to be medium to soft to make insertion easier.

Can I wear the menstrual cup at night?

If you have inserted it correctly, it will not leak when you are lying down, so you can use it at night without any problems, unlike tampons.

Can I wear the menstrual cup at night?

If you have inserted it correctly, it will not leak when you are lying down, so you can use it at night without any problems, unlike tampons.

I used the period cup and now I don't feel well. What should I do?

If for some reason you don't feel well or if you get pain while using the cup, you should remove it. In very rare cases, toxic shock syndrome (TSS) can occur, just like with tampons and pads. Those affected usually suffer from sudden dizziness, fever, vomiting, diarrhoea, headache, muscle pain, sore throat or fainting. Sometimes there are also skin rashes. If you notice such changes, go to the nearest doctor's office or, even better, to the emergency room. TSS can be life-threatening. The earlier it is recognised and treated, the better!
