Empress Menstrual Cups
Are you tired of bulky, messy, and smelly pads and tampons that still manage to leak no matter how often you change them? Are you looking for good protection during that time of the month that doesn’t require huge underwear? Are you sensitive to pads or tampons? Our 100% high quality medical silicone menstrual cups are the answer.
Menstrual cups are an eco-friendly, cost-effective alternative to pads and panty liners that can be worn up to 12 hours before requiring emptying. They are soft, flexible, leak-proof, comfortable, reusable, great for overnight wear, and can collect 3 times more menstrual blood than pads and tampons. Our cups are hypoallergenic, latex-free, antibacterial, odorless, and easy to insert, remove, and clean.
Our cups are durable and can be rinsed and re-used for years with proper care before having to be replaced. It is suggested that you also purchase our sterilization cups so you can sterilize your cup in between your monthly cycles.

- Wash your hands thoroughly.
- Apply water or water-based lube to the rim of the cup if needed.
- Fold the menstrual cup in half, holding it in one hand with the rim facing up.
- Insert the cup, rim up, into your vagina. Cup should not hang outside of the vagina.
- Once the cup is in your vagina, rotate it a little so that it opens to create an airtight seal to stop leaks.
You should not feel your menstrual cup if you have inserted it correctly. You should also be able to move, jump, sit, stand, and do other everyday activities without your cup falling out. If you’re having trouble putting in your cup, try putting a water-based lubrication on the rim of the cup prior to insertion. If you are still having trouble speak with your doctor.
