KuuCups are can be safely worn for up to 12 hours. This includes overnight! However, this is dependent on your flow. Size A KuuCups hold up to 40ml of fluid, if your flow exceeds this then you may need to empty your KuuCup more frequently.
No, a KuuCup wont get stuck however, it may feel like it’s stuck if you get a strong seal. If you tug on your KuuCup and it feels like it is stuck it is actually a good indication that it is working well. When you are ready to remove your KuuCup to empty it, simply pinch the bottom of the cup until you feel the seal break.
Menstrual cups can (although we find this happens rarely) work their way up your vaginal canal and sit too far up for you to get a good grip on in. No need to panic though, simply use your pelvic floor muscles to push down until you can grip it. Some people find this is easier if they squat down or push as if doing a poo.
Absolutely! Menstrual cups work by creating a seal between the rim of the cup and the wall of the vagina. This means that water can’t get in and your menstrual blood won’t get out. Since a KuuCup holds more than tampon, not only will you be able to forget worrying about tampons absorbing pool water but you’ll be able to swim for much longer without needing to stop and visit the bathroom.
As long as you have inserted your KuuCup correctly, it should be very comfortable and you wont be able to feel that you’re wearing one at all.
This depends on the intensity of your flow. A regular tampon typically absorbs 5ml of menstrual fluid compared to a Size B KuuCup which holds up to 30ml or a Size A KuuCup which holds up to 40ml of menstrual fluid! Most people find they will empty the cup every 8-12 hours but you may want to do this more frequently while you are getting used to using the cup and assessing your own personal flow and needs.
