Health & Hygiene

Does it smell bad when I remove the OrganiCup?

Menstrual flow only begins to smell when it is being exposed to air, and since OrganiCup is not exposed to air inside the vagina, it does not emit any bad odor.

Can OrganiCup be used if I use IUD?

We don’t recommend women that use a contraceptive IUD to use menstrual cups without consulting your doctor or gynecologist first.

Can I use OrganiCup after giving birth?

It is not recommended to be using any kind of sanitary protection internally six weeks after giving birth due to the increased risk of infection that results from tiny wounds on the vaginal tissues.

We advise you to consult your doctor when you feel like you’re ready to start using the OrganiCup again.

How long can I leave OrganiCup inside?

OrganiCup should, as a rule of thumb, be emptied once every 12 hours. However, this will depend on your flow. It may take you a couple of cycles to figure out how often you will need to empty your OrganiCup.

Can I use soap to wash my OrganiCup?

Some soaps contain perfumes which can cause irritation to your vagina and cause an imbalance to your natural pH.  If you want to wash with soap, make sure it is an fragrance-free, mild soap.

 

 

Can I get TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome) by using OrganiCup?

There have been no connections made between menstrual cups and Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). TSS is a serious and potentially fatal illness caused by toxin producing strains of staphylococcus aureus bacterium. It has been linked to the high absorbency and prolonged use of tampons.

Can I get infections by using OrganiCup?

As long as you remember to sterilize your OrganiCup regularly and wash your hands before insertion and removal, there is nothing to be worried about!

Can I get allergies by using OrganiCup?

No. The material that is being used is medical grade and does not cause allergic reactions.

How to Use

How do I use OrganiCup?

You fold the soft and flexible silicone cup and insert it into the vagina. If it is in the right position, you will not be able to feel it. The cup can be taken out by carefully squeezing around it to remove the vacuum, where it can then be coaxed out softly and calm. The content can then be emptied out into the toilet and the cup can be rinsed and put back up. Between each menstruation the cup needs to be boiled, and it should always be kept in the enclosed cloth bag.

Some people can have some introductory difficulties with OrganiCup – but later will be very glad users of the product. If you have problems with the use of OrganiCup in the beginning, just remember that you will get used to it! And once you get used to OrganiCup, you will never go back to sanitary towels or tampons.

Can I cut the stem on the OrganiCup?

Yes! A lot of women prefer to cut the stem in half or removing it completely.
The stem should not be visible from outside of the vagina, as this can be a bit uncomfortable. If the stem is too long, you can trim it until you find a comfortable length.

Can OrganiCup be used if I use IUD?

We don’t recommend women that use a contraceptive IUD to use menstrual cups without consulting your doctor or gynecologist first.

How do I sterilize my OrganiCup?

At the end of every period you have to sterilize the OrganiCup. You can either do this by:

Boiling it for 5 minutes in a cup/bowl at 1000 Watts in your Microwave.

Boiling it for 5 minutes on the stove.

Placing the cup in a cup/bowl, pour over boiling water from a kettle and let it soak for 10 minutes.

After boiling, let the OrganiCup sit until completely dry, and put it in your cotton storage bag.

Is OrganiCup messy to use?

Since OrganiCup fits perfectly inside your vagina, you will be amazed how clean it is to use.
No leaks, no dampness, so most of the blood will stay inside the OrganiCup.

How do I remove OrganiCup?
  • Wash your hands.
  • Grab the stem of the OrganiCup and pull gently downwards while flexing your pelvic floor muscles.
  • Grab the bottom (base) of the cup and squeeze gently on the sides to remove the suction seal.
  • Voila!
How do I know if my OrganiCup is inserted correctly?

When your OrganiCup is inserted correctly, you will not be able to feel it, and there will be no discomfort.  If you want to make sure that it is inserted properly, use your finger to push OrganiCup higher or lower until it sits comfortably. Many women recommend twisting the cup after insertion to make sure that it sit in the correct place.

My OrganiCup doesn't unfold.

A menstrual cup is something that has a bigger learning curve than both pads & tampons, and usually it’ll take you 1-2 cycles before you learn how to use the OrganiCup optimally.

There are several different folding methods for the OrganiCup, and you will have to try some of them to find the one that works best for you. You can find a comparison of the different folding techniques here.

After insertion of your OrganiCup, it is a good idea to feel with your finger if it has opened up completely.

If it hasn’t unfolded properly, try the steps below:

Squeeze your abs a couple of times

Grab the OrganiCup with your fingers and twist it.

Pull the stem and press gently on the bottom of the OrganiCup.

Can I use OrganiCup during powerful menstruation?

Yes, easily. OrganiCup will however need to be emptied more often.

Problemer med innsetting/fjerning?

Vi anbefaler at du øver deg på å sette inn og fjerne din OrganiCup utenfor menstruasjonsperioden.

For å gjøre innsetting av OrganiCup så lett som mulig, kan du fukte OrganiCup med litt vann.

Det er samtidig viktig at skjedemusklene er fullstendig avslappet mens du setter inn din OrganiCup. Dette kan oppnås ved å sette deg i en avslappende posisjon. Du kan for eksempel sitte, sitte på huk, på kne eller noe lignende.

Når du fjerner den, innta en lignende avslappende posisjon. Om nødvendig, bruk musklene dine til å sakte dytte OrganiCup ned. Ta deretter tak i din OrganiCup, klem forsiktig og trekk den sakte ut.

Can I use OrganiCup as a virgin?

The hymen is a thin membrane that has room for the menstruation running freely through it, but it partly covers the entrance to the vagina. Therefore, you can easily use Organicup even though you still have an intact hymen. However, just as with tampons, we advise not using it if you want to be perfectly sure to keep your hymen intact.

Can I have sex while using OrganiCup?

Can I take OrganiCup with me on vacation?

OrganiCup can easily be used on the vacation. If you do not have running water available, you can simply clean the OrganiCup with toilet paper. Rest assured, you can go swimming or to the beach as it’s perfectly fine to be active in water while using an OrganiCup.

Product

How can I be sure that my OrganiCup will not leak?

In the beginning it can be an advantage to take a finger and slide it around the edge of the OrganiCup after insertion. You will then be able to feel if it has folded out completely. If OrganiCup has been inserted correctly, you will be able to feel that it is round and folded out. If it is however inserted wrong, you will feel small “wrinkles” in the silicone surface, and the bottom will feel misshapen.

What is OrganiCup made from?

OrganiCup is made of 100% FDA Approved Medical Grade silicone

Is OrganiCup safe to use?

OrganiCup is made from 100% medical grade silicone which is non-toxic and non-allergenic.
OrganiCup also collects fluid instead of absorbing it like tampons. This means that your vagina’s natural balance will not be disrupted. Tampons and pads also contain chemicals like bleach or perfume which can be harmful for the body.

How do I clean the storage bag?

If your cotton storage bag starts to get dirty, you can easily clean it by putting it in the washing machine on 30° or less to keep it from shrinking.
