How do menstrual cups work?

Let’s be real, it’s the question we all had when we made the switch.

A cup? Yes, a menstrual cup.

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.

After 12 hours of wearing your cup, simply empty, wash, reinsert, and get back to living your best life. Say goodbye to tampons and hello to your new best friend!

  • Step 1: Fold

    With clean hands, fold and hold your menstrual cup.

  • Step 2: Insert

    Insert your menstrual cup toward your tailbone. Let it open and rotate it slightly, creating a light seal.

  • Step 3: Remove

    After about 12 hours of wearing your cup, simply remove it by pinching the base of the cup to break the seal. Then wash your cup, insert, and get back to living your best life.

PRO TIP: Position your Saalt Cup a little lower than a tampon. Your first few times, practice removing it in the shower.
