Health & Hygiene

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.

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 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 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.

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.

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!

How to Use

Kan jeg klippe av stilken på OrganiCup?

Ja! Mange kvinner foretrekker å klippe av halve stilken, eller å fullstendig fjerne den.

Stilken bør ikke være synlig fra utsiden av skjeden, siden dette kan være ubehagelig. Om stilken er for lang, kan du klippe den til du finner en lengde som er behagelig.

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.

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.

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.

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 during powerful menstruation?

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

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.

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.

Hvordan kan jeg være sikker på at min OrganiCup ikke kommer til å lekke?

I begynnelsen kan det være lurt å la en finger gli rundt kanten av OrganiCup etter innsetting. Du kommer til å kjenne om den har foldet seg ut fullstendig. Om OrganiCup har blitt satt inn rigkit, kommer du til å kjenne den rund og foldet ut. Om den derimot er feil satt inn, kommer du til å kjenne små “rynker” i silikonoverflaten, og bunnen kommer til å ha feil form.
