Can I use the MCUK if I have endometriosis?

If you have endometriosis, we recommend – as we would for any gynecological condition – that you check with your doctor or gynecologist before buying a menstrual cup to see if it is suitable for you.

That said, we have had positive feedback from some MCUK users living with endometriosis, mainly because the cup holds more than a tampon so you don’t need to empty it as often as you would change a tampon. It also collects your menstrual blood, fluid and any clots, unlike a tampon which absorbs.

You can use the MCUK to roughly measure your blood loss too. This can be useful information to share with your gynecologist. Please contact us if you would like one of our usage guides to take to your appointment.
