Description

 

Looking for a plastic-free alternative to pads and tampons? The BeYou Menstrual Cup is an environmentally and economically friendly alternative that can last up to a whole decade. A menstrual cup can be so comfortable, you won’t even notice it’s there!

 

The BeYou Menstrual Cup holds up to 3 tampons worth and can be worn for up to 12 hours. You can forget about your period during the day and night. BeYou’s Menstrual Cup lasts for years, not hours – cutting down on waste and monthly cost. It’s made with 100% soft, medical grade silicone. With no hazardous chemicals, BPA, Latex, or Dye.

 

BeYou Menstrual cup is different to other cups on the market. It has been designed to be super soft and flexible. The pliable medical grade silicone they have used is so easy to fold into any of fold of your choice and can be used by those  who may be a little more sensitive and experience discomfort when inserting tampons.

 

Can a Menstrual Cup spill over inside me and leak everywhere? If you insert it correctly just below your cervix, it will create a vacuum seal and won’t move. It works just like a suction cup and will stay in place until you break the seal and empty it out.

 

How do you remove BeYou menstrual cup without making a mess? All the blood is caught inside of the cup, which you won’t be touching when you remove your cup. The only part that you may find messy is inserting the cup and this is the same process as when you use a tampon. You can just wash your hands afterwards and use a piece of toilet paper to wipe it down.

BeYou Menstrual Cup 1

 

BeYou menstrual cup is more intimate than pads and can take up to 2-3 cycles to get used to.

 

  • Before you use the BeYou cup simply, boil the cup for 5-10 minutes in a saucepan so that your cup is completely sanitised.
  • Take your time and practice using your cup until you feel comfortable.
  • Fold the cup using a fold that feels most comfortable for you.
  • Insert the folded cup into your vagina with the same method as a tampon.
  • The cup should sit lower than a tampon inside your vagina, but should feel comfortable, with the stem fully inside.
  • Once the cup is inside, it will open and create a light suction. This is how the cup prevents leaks.
  • You can use your finger to check it is fully unfolded. You can twist the cup if you need to.
  • The cup can be used for up to 12 hours, but you can empty your cup when you feel you need to.
  • To remove the cup, gently pull the stem of the cup downwards until you can reach and hold the base of the cup.
  • Pinch the base to release the suction and take it out.
  • You may need to push down to help reach your cup.
  • Empty the contents of your cup into the toilet and rinse.
  • Reinsert cup if needed.

 

Cleansing Methods:

There are a number of different cleansing methods you can use to keep your cup clean:

  • We recommend using the BeYou Menstrual Cup Foaming Cleanser to thoroughly cleanse your cup. To use, simply squirt a small amount of the cleanser onto the cup and lather with your hands to form a foam, turning the cup inside out where necessary. Once clean, rinse with clean water. Shop here!
  • Cover fully with water and boil in an allocated pan for 5 – 7 minutes. Do not leave the boiling pan unattended and ensure the cup is fully cool before re-inserting.
  • If you are in a public toilet without your Foaming Cleanser, take a small bottle of water in to the cubicle to rinse your menstrual cup, or simply empty and reinsert, remembering to wash the cup more thoroughly at the next convenient time. When overseas always use drinking water to clean the cup!

Can I use a Menstrual Cup if I have an IUD or Mirena coil fitted?

Yes! If you have a Mirena Coil or an IUD you can use a menstrual cup. Many women worry that using a menstrual cup will dislodge their coil, however, a menstrual cup sits quite a bit lower in your vaginal canal while your IUD sits further away in your uterus, it won’t interfere with your coil. When it comes to using a menstrual cup with an IUD,, you will want to keep some space between your BeYou cup and your vaginal cervix, for comfort. If you feel that your cervix is quite low, then you may want to consider other options that won’t interfere with your IUD/IUS

Will using the BeYou Menstrual Cup cause a mess?

Removing a menstrual cup isn’t any messier than any other sanitary product. As all the blood is caught inside of your BeYou cup, you won’t need to worry about getting your hands dirty. The only part that you may consider ‘messy’ is when you’re inserting your cup, you may find a little bit of blood has reached your vaginal canal by then, but this is the same with tampons too. Nothing washing your hands won’t solve. P.S. Many of us have been conditioned to fear our own menstrual blood. Take a moment to really think about how messed up that is. It’s time you took back control of your period and everything it stands for!

What will a Menstrual Cup feel like once it's inside me?

With the right fit and cup size, you shouldn’t feel your menstrual cup at all once it’s inserted(like a tampon). You might be able to feel the stem if it’s too long for you. However, you can trim your menstrual cup’s stem by cutting along the lines of the stem. If you can feel the entire cup then the likelihood is that your menstrual cup isn’t the right size, it hasn’t opened properly or it is too low/high in your vaginal canal. There's a reason why menstrual cup users rave about how comfortable they are! As we say though, practice makes perfect.

Will using a Menstrual Cup hurt?

Using a menstrual cup shouldn’t hurt at all. That’s the beauty of the BeYou Menstrual Cup - it’s so comfy! However, if your cup is causing you some pain there are a few possible reasons why: You have the wrong size - If your cup is too big or too long it could be sitting too high in your vagina or it’s pressing against your vaginal walls which can cause some discomfort. The stem of your cup is too long - If your vaginal canal is short or you have a low cervix then the stem could be poking your vaginal walls. You can trim your stem by cutting off part of the stem with scissors. Your cup is too high - If your cup is sat too high and hasn’t unfolded properly it could be pressing against your cervix. We recommend making sure your cup sits lower in the vaginal canal and slowly pushing your cup upwards so it is fully inserted. Your cup is too low - If your cup is sat too low in your vaginal canal it can cause some discomfort. To make sure your cup isn’t too low make sure the entire stem of your menstrual cup is completely inserted and your cup isn’t directly at the entrance to your vagina.

What material is the BeYou Cup made from?

BeYou menstrual cup is made from super-soft and flexible medical grade silicone. That makes it a safe material to be inserted inside the vagina and it is kind to all skin types. Why soft? BeYou menstrual cup to be softer that others because that was the number 1 piece of feedback after talking to thousands of cup users. Besides, not everything that goes in there should be hard.

How often do I need to remove my Menstrual Cup?

The BeYou Menstrual Cup holds up to 3 tampons worth of fluid at a time and can be worn for up to 12 hours, but we recommend emptying your cup every 4-8 hours.

Do I have to remove and clean my Menstrual Cup every time I go to the toilet?

No, you won’t need to remove and clean your cup every time that you go to the loo,but you might want to make sure it’s all still fitting well the first few times that you use the cup. We only recommend keeping your cup inserted for 4-8 hours, before emptying it out. You do need to clean your cup every time that you remove it, which is quite easy to do with either our Menstrual Cup Foaming Cleanser, water or a piece of toilet paper.

Can I use a Menstrual Cup if I have a light or heavy flow?

Yes, your menstrual cup is there to support you through the highs, lows and heavy flows of your period! Unlike tampons, menstrual cups don’t absorb your menstrual blood, they collect it. Which is why there is no such thing as too light or too heavy, for your cup! If you feel like you’re having a particularly heavy flow one day, then you may just find that you’ll have to empty your cup out a little more frequently than usual. For the days that you have a lighter flow, you can use the menstrual cup and empty it out every 4-8 hours. Soon you will discover a suitable pattern for your new cup routine!

How do you recycle a Menstrual Cup?

With the menstrual cup lasting for up to 10 years, you’ll not only be saving money but tonnes of waste material too from ending up in landfill! But, when it does come to the time where you need to replace and recycle your current cup, you’ll want to know how to go about it. Silicone can be recycled, but it might be a little tricky to find a facility at first that does recycle small quantities of silicone. You can contact your local recycling centre and find out if they will accept your menstrual cup. A menstrual cup contains no harmful chemicals, so you can also cut it up into fine pieces and add it to the soil of a plant or in your garden, even plant a little plant IN your cup (a cute small one) or just burn it up into ash and it won’t release any toxic fumes. Burning it will take a bit of a leap though, as silicone can withstand heat of up to 500 degrees - so maybe the cup option is simpler!
