Frequently asked questions
How does the cup stay in?
My Green Vibes Cup fits comfortably inside your vaginal canal & stays in place when a suctioning seal is formed between the outside of the cup and the walls of your vagina. When inserted properly, it will rest naturally; you won’t even notice it’s there. And while it’s very unusual for the cup to fill up, if it does, it won’t overflow or fall out.
This cup looks massive, it will never fit!
You will see when folded properly its doesn’t seem as big as it looks and this part of your body is probably larger than you think.
How often should I empty my cup?
Just one cup covers light to super plus days. Most of the days, you will empty it only twice a day (every 12 hours), before going to bed & when waking up.
However, depending of your flow and the day of your cycle, you might need to empty it more often especially around day 3 of your periods and the following days just twice per day. Make sure you empty it at least every 12 hours.
Can the cup be lost in my body?
The opening at the top of your vagina into your womb is very small, so there is no possibility for the cup getting “lost” in your body. If you cannot reach your cup, it might have moved higher than usual. It may happen, if a good seal isn’t formed properly when first inserted. Simply walk around and wait 30 minutes and try again, or use your pelvic muscles to push it down. Squatting in the shower can also help.
When should I replace my cup?
If your cup is ripped or torn, or seems deteriorate due to using a non-recommended cleaners, it is time to replace your cup. However, with proper care, your cup lasts up to 10 years.
