Yes, menstrual cup is a safe product.
Menstrual cup & UID
It is safe to use the cup with an UID. But it is important that you know how to use the menstrual cup correctly. You can use a menstrual cup if you have an UID. Still, studies suggest that women who used a menstrual cup had a higher rate of UID dislodgement than women who used tampons or pads. Although this is a personal choice, we recommend that you talk to your doctor first. Let's say you want to use the cup and you have an UID inserted. In that case, we recommend waiting three months after the UID insertion (to allow it to settle). It is also a good idea to cut the threads. Always be sure to break the suction completely before you start removing the cup.
Menstrual cup & SST
Toxic shock syndrome is a disease that affects both men and women, and is not only associated with the use of tampons.
Although it is a rare disease, there are several risks that can lead to the appearance of the toxic bacteria that cause it.
These are the most common causes: having recently given birth, staphylococcal infection, use of tampons during period, recent surgery, wound infection, using a nasal packing to treat bleeding, UID and tampon use at the same time
The guideline of removing and emptying the cup every 12 hours is precisely to avoid any possibility.
I am very happy with my purchase.
After a few years of use, I can say that I would never go back!
A quality product
This changed my life. I was always feeling guilty using pads due to environmental issues and my friends were always telling me how great this product is and I was not disapointed!!
Barely noticed it was there however would like to see more sterilisation products available to help with cleaning of the cup!
Just adding to the large body of positive reviews here. I have a low cervix and medium flow, so went for the small size and it's been working super well. It took some time (and came out with a few funny/traumatising stories) before I got the hang of how to take the cup out, but bless youtube for teaching us everything nowadays. Once it's in, it's in- I haven't had any leakage problems. Also got the sterilizing cup which has been fabulous for privacy, as I live with flatmates. Will never go back to other period products. The cup itself is great, the donation is wonderful and I can say with confidence that my quality of life has improved since I have started using it. I'll be gifting it to every period-having person in my life who hasn't yet been converted.
