Can I use the MCUK if I have a retroverted uterus?

If you have a retroverted (or “tipped”) uterus it is usually fine to use a MCUK menstrual cup. You may need to use a pad at first, while you find the best position for you to collect the blood.

There are a small number of individuals who have a retroverted uterus for whom the MCUK will not work, so please keep in touch and let us know how it goes.

What is a retroverted uterus?

A retroverted uterus – also known as a tilted uterus, or a tipped uterus – is one that tips backwards towards the rectum instead of forwards towards the bladder.
