Fulfilled by our friends at Tampon Tribe
Vegan, totally silicone free and made with the most comfortable, highest-quality medical-grade safe material available, Tampon Tribe’s Menstrual Cup has been designed to be the most effective available.
Endorsed by MDs and leading researchers, our Cup will have you wondering why you didn’t make the switch earlier!
WHICH SIZE SHOULD I USE?
M - MEDIUM:
For those younger than 25 who have not given birth vaginally.
L - LARGE:
For everyone over 25, or anyone who has given birth vaginally.
WHAT IS IT MADE FROM?
Medical Grade TPE - this is used for medical devices due to its high degree of purity: no latex, rubber, PVC or animal-derived materials. TPE is also regulatory compliant for RoHS, REACH, FDA, Prop 65 and SVHC. TPE is biocompatible and recyclable. It’s super soft and flexible, and easy to clean.
WHY TPE and NOT SILICONE?
We designed the cups with TPE especially for comfort and safety - TPE has the unique ability to warm with body temperature and create a more custom fit by molding to your shape.
As a menstrual cup, TPE is firm enough to create a seal inside you, yet it works with your body so you don't notice it's there. We find that active people can really tell the difference between comfy TPE and rigid silicone - especially when doing sports, yoga etc.
We also added a patented-leak free technology to ensure no loss of seal or sudden vacuum! (Avoiding disaster!!)
Also, TPE is recyclable while silicone is not - so when it's time for a new cup, you're saving our Earth!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Our Menstrual Cup can stay in place for up to 12 hours, depending on your flow. It has rounded edges for comfort and a patented leak prevention design to ensure it stays in place and is easy to remove - without spills! You simply remove, empty, rinse and reuse.

TIPS and TROUBLESHOOTING!!
Based on our experience, issues related to an improper opening of the menstrual cup once inserted, are mostly caused either by an incorrect placement of the cup inside the vagina or by the use of the wrong size.
Concerning the placement, the menstrual cup should be placed a bit lower than a tampon (it’s normal that first-time users have some issues at this point!). Once inserted, we have a few tips that could help with the sealing process:
- Find the right fold that suits you (there are different folds to try!).
- When inserted, try to find the stem of the menstrual cup and push it up a bit. You can also try to slightly pull the cup down then push it back into place.
- Clench your pelvic floor muscles.
- Gently squeeze the bottom of your cup.
- Carefully rotate the menstrual cup 360⁰.
In order to be sure that the cup has completely opened, we recommend to gently run one finger around the base of the cup to check if you can feel any noticeable folds (if yes, the cup is not properly opened!). Some people may feel some resistance or a feeling of suction pressure when the cup opens (even a “pop” can be heard in some occasions), but it really depends on the user.
Customers that are already experienced with the use of the cup and that struggle with the opening process may be using the wrong size, so it’s really important to verify if you are using the proper one.
Please, note that the size guide is a general recommendation applicable to a high % of consumers and every body is different, so it may be a few cases of you needing a different size than the one stated on the instructions due to bodies' individual characteristics!
