Can I use the Menstrual Cup with an IUD?
This is a frequent question that is asked by many but there is nothing to fear about. That means it is absolutely safe to use. Many Gynocup users have been using it while having an IUD fitted. However, you should always consult your doctor before using a menstrual cup with an IUD. Moreover, within the first 3 months after the device has been inserted, almost 5% of cases IUD gets naturally rejected by the body. This is why we recommend: • After the IUD has been inserted, wait for 2-3 full cycles before you go for the Gynocup as it will give your body enough time to settle with it. • If you start using it make sure to break the suction seal before removing the cup. • Place the Gynocup as low as possible near the vaginal opening. • You can also get the string of your IUD to get shorted by your gynaecologist and not by yourself. If still have a question please talk to our female consultant at 989-909-5800.

Some ways to eliminate the smell from the cup: • Hydrogen peroxide mix can prove beneficial. All you need to do is to mix 1/2 hydrogen peroxide 2% and 1/2 water in a bowl. Leave it overnight after submerging the cup in the mixture. Boil the cup for 3-5 minutes after doing this and inserting it again. • Use fresh lemon juice there are two ways, either you can either wipe the inside and outside of your cup with a fresh lime or you can soak the cup in the juice for an hour or so.

Can I get TSS from using the Menstrual Cup?
TSS is bacterial infections that can prove to be dangerous. It is generally associated with the use of a tampon. If a person is a carrier of a specific strain of staph bacteria (staphylococcus aureus) in their body, then you are more likely to catch TSS as it gets multiplied as in a tampon’s absorbent fibers. A menstrual cup collects the menstrual blood, unlike tampons and pads. This clearly means that the suction seal does not allow the oxygen to reach the menstrual flow and thus it remains bacteria-free. No unnecessary vaginal fluids will be absorbed in this case and eliminate the chances of irritation and dryness. This also allows the natural pH balance of the vagina to get intact. There can be a minimal risk of catching TSS if you encounter strain of staph bacteria in your vaginal flora. This is why it is recommended that you empty it after 8-12 hours. It is very important to sanitize your cup in between periods and wash your hands every time you touch your cup. If you experience any of the symptoms, then it is better to seek medical advice immediately and discontinue the usage of the cup. The symptoms are - sudden fever, dizziness, vomiting, diarrhoea, fainting, a rash similar to a sunburn, or scaly skin. You can develop the infection during the menstrual period or some days later. Note: Do not use Gynocup if you have been previously diagnosed with TSS.
How do I remove discolouration from my Menstrual Cup?
Discolouration is quite common in case you are using a transparent cup and it has nothing to do with its usability apart from the fact that it looks different in appearance.

You just need to submerge the cup and leave it overnight. This would make it look like a new one but clean it thoroughly before use!
