What is a menstrual cup?

A menstrual cup is an insertable period product that collects rather than absorbs your period flow. Key benefits include:

  • Leak-free protection for up to 12 hours
  • No rashes, discomfort or itching 
  • No unpleasant odours 
  • No need to purchase or dispose of sanitary pads/tampons 
  • Reuse a single cup for up to 10 years
How do I choose my size? 

The Asan cup comes in two sizes: light/medium flow and heavy flow. Your size depends on how often you tend to change tampons or pads on the heaviest days of your period.

  • Light/Medium flow cup: For those who change pads/tampons every 6+ hours.
  • Heavy flow cup: For those who change pads/tampons every 2-6 hours.
What is it made of?

The Asan cup is made from USP Class VI silicone, which is the same material used in heart stents. It is biocompatible and does not contain plastics, toxins, BPAs or harmful chemicals. We have a patent for our design and follow strict quality standards. It is extremely safe to use.

How do I insert the cup? 

The Asan cup is made from soft silicone that is easy to fold and insert.

Step 1: WASH. Wash your hands and the cup. If the cup is wet, it will be easier to insert. 

Step 2: FOLD. There are several ways to fold your cup: the C-Fold (folding in half), the Punch Down Fold and the 7-fold.

Step 3. SQUAT. Squatting is an easy position in which to insert the cup into your vagina. Alternatively, you can sit wide-legged on the toilet, or lift one leg onto a stool. 

Step 4: INSERT. Gently guide your cup into your vaginal opening, angling it towards your tailbone (not upwards). Keep it folded until it is entirely inside your vagina. Release once it is inside and it will pop open on its own. 

Step 5: CHECK POSITION. If your cup is placed correctly, it will open up fully and will create a seal against the wall of your vagina. If you prod it, it should be resistant and stay in place.

How do I remove the cup? 

Thanks to its unique removal ring, the Asan cup is extremely easy to remove.

Step 1: WASH HANDS. Thoroughly wash hands with soap and water.

Step 2: LOCATE CUP. Guide two fingers into your vagina until you can reach the removal ring. Gently pull on the ring until the base of the menstrual cup is near the entrance of your vagina.

Step 3: PINCH. Do not pull the cup out completely using the removal ring. Instead, pinch the base of the cup, which will break the suction. Then slowly guide the cup out of your vagina. 

Step 4: EMPTY & REINSERT. Empty the menstrual fluid into the toilet or bath. Wash your cup with clean water and reinsert.

How do I clean the cup? 

Before each period, sanitise it by boiling in a pot of water for 10 minutes. During your period, rinse your cup thoroughly with clean water each time you empty it.

You can also use Asan's OneDrop cleanser to clean your cup. This is very handy when you're travelling or don't have access to hot water.
