How does HerCherie's Premium Menstrual Cup work?

Inserts like a tampon, HerCherie's menstrual cups sits comfortably inside of your vagina. The cup seals gently against your vaginal walls and moves accordingly with you throughout the day, during regular or physical activities, and overnight. The body adjusts to your cup’s presence immediately and there is no sensation from either the cup or the stem.

How do you insert a menstrual cup?

1. Fold it into a "U" shape by pressing the sides of the cup together. You can also fold it into a triangle shape.

2. Hold the sides firmly between your thumb and forefingers so that the curved edge is facing upwards towards your vagina.

3. Similar to inserting in a tampon, relax your vaginal muscles and push the curved side of the folded menstraul cup up into your vaginal opening. You can push it in until the stem is about 1/2 inch into the vagina. Make sure the cup is not inserted in too high into the canal as that may cause leaks and be difficult to remove.

4. Grip the base of the cup (not the stem) and rotate the cup 180-360 degrees. This allows your cup to fully open up inside your vagina so that its positioned and ready to collect period blood.

What cup size should I get? 

Our menstrual cup is available in 2 sizes. Size S is recommended for women who haven’t given birth vaginally. Size L is recommended for women who have given birth vaginally. 


Size S: Diameter 4cm, Length 7.2cm
Size L: Diameter 4.5cm, Length 7.6cm

Can I go swimming in my cup?

Absolutely! Due to the softness of the medical grade silicon material, you won’t feel the cup while it’s inserted and it gives you comfortable and leak-free protection. 

How do you remove and clean your cup?

We recommend purchasing our menstrual cup cleaning kit to easily travel and clean your cup.

To remove the cup, gently pull the stem of your cup until the base of your cup is sticking out. Then pinch the base of the cup to avoid spillage, and continue to pull down to remove it.

For day to day cleaning, use any fragrance-free, oil-free liquid soap to wash your cup. It's best if your soap has a mild to acidic pH level of 3,5 and 5,5. Do NOT use dish wash or detergent! We also recommend boiling your cup for 20 minutes after your menstrual cycle ends and before the first time you use a new cup. You can also use rubbing alcohol to wipe it down, so that tis sanitized and ready to go for your next cycle!
