How long does a menstrual cup last?
If you follow our instructions for cleaning and storage, the MCUK menstrual cup will last for years and years.
If there is any change in the material or shape of your MCUK, if it splits or becomes sticky, then it will need replacing.
There may be some natural staining over time. This does not mean your MCUK is no longer hygienic or affect how it works.
If you want to remove the staining, soak the menstrual cup in sterilizing fluid (used for sterilizing baby equipment and available in drug stores). Do this for the minimum recommended time, following the manufacturer’s dilution guidelines. Rinse thoroughly with clean water and then you’re ready to use your MCUK again.
