New to the Menstrual Cups? Don’t worry! We’re here to help you get started.
If it’s your first time, we recommend leaving yourself some time to get a feel for putting it in. Like any menstrual product, the cup has a small learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, it’s the easiest protection you’ll ever use!
Sit on the toilet with your legs apart or stand with one leg propped up. Fold your cup. Insert the folded cup into your vagina. If you’re having a lighter period, a little water-based lube can make things more comfortable. Push it in, scooping back toward your spine. When it’s in, let go, letting the cup open.
Next, create a seal by bearing down with your muscles and twisting the cup back and forth a little. Give it a light tug to make sure it’s secure.
Taking out your menstrual cup:
Your FUN CUP is held in place by suction. Here are two possible ways to break the seal:
- Push down with your muscles and then pinch the cup.
- Reach in and press the rim of the cup with your fingertip.
Lightly pinching your cup, pull it out then empty it into the toilet. (Some people prefer to empty their cup in the shower, which works just as well.)
Cleaning your menstrual cup:
Between uses, rinse the cup out thoroughly. You can also wash it with a mild, unscented soap.
On the go? No worries. In a multi-stall restroom, just wipe the cup with a little toilet paper and put it back in. When your period is over, wash and dry your cup and store it in its antimicrobial bag.
Want to get your cup extra clean? Between periods, boil it for three minutes.

10 Reasons to try the Fun Cup Menstrual Cups:
1. THE FUN CUP FITS YOUR BODY BETTER
This cup is designed by anatomy experts! Its gentle curve follows your shape, so you don’t have to worry about uncomfortable pressure. Instead of the pokey stem you find on other cups, the FUN CUP just has a firm, tapered tip for easy adjustment and maximum comfort.
Plus, it’s available in two sizes. Find your perfect fit or switch off depending on your flow.
2. YOU CAN TAKE IT ANYWHERE
Each kit comes with two cups and a small travel bag. Why not leave one at home and take the other with you, so you’re always ready?
Plus, the FUN CUP stays put for all of your favorite activities. You can run, swim, do yoga, or fly through the air on a flying trapeze if you want – all with reliable period protection.
3. IT STAYS CLEAN BETWEEN USES
With every FUN CUP kit, you get an antimicrobial Tyvek® travel bag, so your cup is always clean and ready when you want it. You’ll love its clean, simple design, with no bright pink or florals. Speaking of which…
4. DESIGN AND PACKAGING IS GENDER INCLUSIVE
For years, period products have been plastered with flowers and packaged in pink. The FUN CUP is for period-havers of all gender identities and expressions. The cup is available in a selection of bold colors, and the packaging and materials use gender neutral language.
Plus, with no string or stem protruding, you’ll be able to be nude without a visible reminder of your period, if that’s something you want.
5. IT’S PERFECT FOR BUSY PEOPLE
Did you know that the FUN CUP holds 4-6 times as much as a tampon? That means you can get on with your life without all the extra bathroom breaks.
6. IT’S GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH
Did you know that tampons leave microabrasions in your vagina, making you more susceptible to infection? The FUN CUP is made of hypoallergenic German medical grade silicone, among the safest materials you can put in your body. Since it collects blood, rather than absorbing it, it doesn’t dry you out or chafe your skin, so you can maintain your sexual health.
7. IT SAVES YOU MONEY
If you’re using disposable menstrual products, you’re probably spending $100+ a year on your period. The FUN CUP costs a fraction of that and can be washed and reused for years to come. With two cups for package, you also get twice the use! What are you going to do with the money you’re saving every year?
8. IT’S EXTREMELY ECO-FRIENDLY
Disposable menstrual products create 250-300 lb (115-140 kg) of waste over the course of a lifetime. If you want to keep your period out of a landfill, the reusable FUN CUP is a nearly waste-free choice.
9. YOU CAN GET TWO SIZES IN ONE PACKAGE
Most companies offer just one cup in one size at a time. If you don’t know what size is best for you, you’re left to guess! With the FUN CUP, you get two cups per package, with the option of trying the EXPLORE KIT, which has one cup in SIZE A (2.1 in, Ø 1.56 in, 0.68 oz / 5,3 cm; Ø 4 cm; 20 ml) and another in SIZE B (2.29 in, Ø 1.7 in, 1.01 oz / 5,8 cm; Ø 4,3 cm; 30 ml). Many of our customers use SIZE A for light days and SIZE B for heavier days!
10. MENSTRUAL CUPS ARE MADE IN GERMANY
The Fun Cups are manufactured in a clean, safe facility where the workers are paid a fair wage and products meet strict EU standards for safety, health, and environmental impact.
