What is a menstrual cup?

A menstrual cup is a small container made from medical-grade silicone which is placed inside the vagina to collect menstrual flow.

Research study

Students in South Africa

50% of 509 female students aged 18-24 years attending education institutions in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa reported that inserting the menstrual cup was very easy or quite easy on first use. Of those who did not find it easy, 80% achieved comfort after 2-3 insertions. More than 90% who had used the cup would continue to use it.

In conclusion, the menstrual cup was well accepted among this student population and should be considered as a cost-effective and environmentally sustainable option in menstrual health management initiatives in South Africa.
