The menstrual cup is an environmentally friendly, durable, affordable, and healthy alternative to sanitary towels, panty liners, and tampons. The Merula menstrual cup is made of certified medical grade silicone and is 100% safe for your body. The cup does not contain chemical additives such as plasticizers.
The menstrual cup is a small flexible cup that is inserted, while folded, to collect the menstrual blood. The cup opens up again in the body and creates a leak-free seal. The pelvic floor muscles hold the cup in the correct position. After a period of time, no longer than 12 hours, the cup is taken out. The contents can be emptied into the toilet and afterward, it can be rinsed with water. The cup can then be reinserted immediately.
