Can I wear the cup while being active?
Being active is one of our favorite things to do here at FemmyCycle. We believe your period should not be a limiting factor to any of your activities.

Can I use the FemmyCycle menstrual cup with an IUD?
Yes, FemmyCycle can be used if you have an Intrauterine Device (IUD). Please consult with your physician if you have any specific questions.

Can I have intercourse while wearing the FemmyCycle menstrual cup?
As with all menstrual cups, it is not recommended to have penetrative intercourse while using FemmyCycle. If you want to have intercourse, remove the FemmyCycle prior to getting it on!

How do I remove the FemmyCycle menstrual cup? What if it feels stuck?
To remove your FemmyCycle menstrual cup, insert one finger into the vagina and hook the finger into the removable ring.  Bear down as if having a bowel movement and angle the cup downwards for removal.  Slowly wiggle the cup out using the removal ring. If you feel suction, you can pinch the base of the cup and then pull the ring gently. Learn more about recommended product use here.

How do I clean my FemmyCycle? What if I’m in a public restroom?
To clean your FemmyCycle menstrual cup on the go, we recommend purchasing our all natural, pH-neutral cleanser. You can also wash your FemmyCycle menstrual cup with mild, fragrance-free soap and hot water to safely and effectively clean your cup.

What makes the FemmyCycle Cleanser so awesome?
Our FemmyCycle Cleanser is pH-neutral, natural and organic, and is recommended for the safest clean possible. Our cleanser is made of non-toxic, fragrance-free ingredients and is included in a reusable portable bottle small enough to carry with you and last several months.

Why is my FemmyCycle menstrual cup changing color?
Due to the fact that the FemmyCycle menstrual cup is made from clean, medical grade silicone with no added dyes or chemicals, discoloration can happen over time (as with most clean products). This is perfectly natural. Any mild or moderate silicone discoloration is normal and does not impact the performance or functionality of the cup.

How often do I need to replace my FemmyCycle menstrual cup?
FemmyCycle can last up to two years with proper care. We recommend replacing your FemmyCycle cup every two years at most.

What is your replacement policy?
Customer happiness is our main focus and we strive to exceed your expectations.  If you’re having trouble with your cup or feel you purchased an incorrect size, please reach out to us within 60 days and we’d be happy to discuss replacement options and next steps with you.  Please note that FemmyCycle is regulated as a medical device product and cannot be returned.
