Yes. The Fleurcup menstrual cup can be used all night without any problem.


Do I have to remove the Fleurcup menstrual cup to urinate or defecate ?

No. You can leave it in place to urinate and defecate.


How should I wash the Fleurcup menstrual cup ?

Simply rinse it first of all with cold tap water or drinking water and then wash it with warm or hot water (whichever you prefer) and fragrance free, gentle soap.

You may also wipe it with toilet paper or a paper towel and re-insert it. In this case, clean the Fleurcup menstrual cup at the next opportunity.

Given that the internal surface of the Fleurcup menstrual cup is smooth, free of any printed inscriptions and has a ‘peach skin’ aspect, it is very easy to rinse and clean.

Sterilize the Fleurcup menstrual cup only between each cycle.


Why is the Fleurcup menstrual cup better than a tampon ?


The Fleurcup menstrual cup enables collection of the period flow while tampons absorb this. Consequently, the Fleurcup menstrual cup does not dry or irritate your vagina.

Moreover, you can use a single cup for several years whereas a woman will use approximately 12,000 tampons in her life.

The Fleurcup menstrual cup is therefore much safer, much more practical, much more economical and creates far less pollution than a tampon.

Also, with a tampon, urine tends to return towards the vagina along the string during urination. This is not the case with the Fleurcup menstrual cup.


Can I use the Fleurcup menstrual cup if I have an IUD - a contraceptive coil or ring ?

Yes, you can wear the Fleurcup menstrual cup.


Can the Fleurcup menstrual cup be used by virgins ?

Yes. The Small Fleurcup menstrual cup can be used by virgins.


Can I keep the Fleurcup menstrual cup during coitus ?

No, you cannot.

Furthermore, the Fleurcup menstrual cup is not a contraceptive device and does not protect you against sexually transmitted diseases (STD).
