Can i wear Lyvefresh Menstrual Cup when i _____________________?

You can wear the Lyvefresh Menstrual Cup for any activity you participate in while menstruating, except for vaginal intercourse. This includes swimming, scuba diving, camping, sleeping, running, yoga, weightlifting, gymnastics – you name it! If you are using the correct size and have inserted the Menstrual Cup correctly, it should not move out of place or leak no matter your activity level.

NOTE: The Lyvefresh Menstrual Cup should be used during menstruation only, and should not be inserted at any other time.

Is it messy ?

Using the Lyvefresh Menstrual Cup does require you to get a little more up close and personal with your flow, but it is clean and comfortable to use. Be sure to wash your hands well before inserting and removing, as well as after you’re finished reinserting.

What if i can’t get it out ?

It can take some time to get the hang of insertion and removal. However, the vaginal canal is an elastic, muscular tube only about four (4) – five (5) inches (10.2 – 12.7 cm) long – there is nowhere for the menstrual cup to get “lost” inside you, as the vagina does not connect to other parts of the body.

When inserted correctly, the menstrual cup should sit low at the base of the canal, away from the cervix, making it possible for you to reach the stem and grip the base to remove it. Making sure you keep your muscles relaxed for removal is key!

How to i clean Lyvefresh Menstrual Cup in public washroom ?

When in a public washroom, some consumers are not comfortable washing their menstrual cup in the sink out in the open. If this is the case, wash your hands thoroughly before entering the stall, empty the contents of your cup into the toilet and simply use a dry or damp tissue to clean the cup. At the next convenient time, clean as per the User Guide instructions.

Always wash your menstrual cup using potable water that is safe to drink, including when traveling or camping.

What is Toxic Shock Syndrome ? Is it caused due to Menstrual Cup ?

Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) is a rare, but serious disease caused by toxin-producing strains of the Staphylococcus aureus bacterium. In extremely rare cases, the strain may present itself with infection linked to the use of internal menstrual care products or as a result of surgery or burns. When exposed to the strain, TSS may affect a small number of people (including men, women and children). As we are not medically staffed, we recommend talking to your doctor with regards to any gynecological/medical concerns or conditions. Our User Guide and website include detailed instructions for use and maintenance, and it is important to use the menstrual cup pursuant to these directions. Use caution to thoroughly wash your hands prior to insertion and removal and wash the cup with warm water at least 2-3 times a day (every 10 – 12 hours).

We recommend that you consult your physician prior to using the menstrual cup if you have been previously diagnosed with TSS. Discontinue use of the menstrual cup and contact your health practitioner if you experience any of the following symptoms: sudden vomiting, diarrhea, high fever, headache, sunburn-like rash, muscle aches, confusion or seizures.

Because menstrual cups collect rather than absorb blood, you’re not at risk of getting toxic shock syndrome (TSS), a rare bacterial infection associated with tampon use.

How should i get ready to use it for the first time ?

Before your first menstrual cup use, submerge the cup in an open pot of boiling water for 5 – 10 minutes, using a stainless steel pot that is designated to boil your cup. This is a mandatory first step.

It is not necessary to boil your menstrual cup between cycles, as regular cleaning can be sufficient. For more information on proper care and cleaning you can check our cleaning instructions.

When should you replace Lyvefresh Menstrual Cup ?

While medical grade silicone can last up to 25 years, the silicone in a Lyvefresh Menstrual Cup deserves special consideration because it is used in the vagina. Each body is different, and pH, acidity levels and vaginal bacteria can affect the lifespan of a menstrual cup. Additionally, the care and cleaning of the cup will also play a role in how often a cup should be replaced.

With proper care and cleaning, your cup can last for several years. However, if you notice any of the following characteristics in your cup, you should immediately replace it:

  • Foul odor 
  • Heavy staining 
  • A white powder residue or any flaking on the cup 
  • Any types of tears or cracks in the rim or the stem of the cup 
  • A grainy texture 
  • Sudden leaking where it has not been experienced before

Can menstrual cup leak and spoil the clothes ?

Usually your menstrual cup never leaks and spoil your clothes, but when your cup is inserted, it should “pop open” so that it suctions to the walls of your inner genitals. If the cup doesn’t fully expand, there will be a crease that causes it to leak. To check this, you can feel around the base of the cup with your finger to see if there are any creases.

Will this Menstrual cup widen the mouth of my vagina ?

Nope. Vaginas have the capacity to stretch and expand to fit objects like menstrual cups, but once the object is removed, they return to their folded and compressed state. Vaginas are made of mucosal and muscle tissue that doesn’t “stretch out”—it’s not like an elastic hair band.
