Let's talk menstrual cups

It’s a reusable soft silicone cup worn internally like a tampon that collects, rather than absorbs, your period.

Menstrual Cup 101

We get a lot of questions about menstrual cups. Here are the ones we hear most.


How do menstrual cups work?

A Saalt Cup is inserted like a tampon, but collects rather than absorbs your flow. It sits in the vaginal canal, and when inserted properly, you won't even notice it's there.

This was my first time buying and using a period cup. There was definitely a learning curve, and some stress getting it out the first few times, but once I got the hang of it I am obsessed. Love that you can wear it all day long and so much more sustainable than tampons. So glad I decided to try! Thanks Saalt.

I just started yesterday and my mind is blown. So comfortable, easy to use, and it doesn’t interfere with my active lifestyle whatsoever. I’m so bummed I didn’t give it a chance sooner. This is truly what period freedom feels like!
