YOUR SIMPLE GUIDE TO MENSTRUAL CUPS

The Saalt cup is one of our favourite cups because of their size and firmness options, and their brand values!

HOW DO THEY WORK?

Fold it up nice and small.

Insert it like a tampon.

It will collect your blood (3-4x more blood than a tampon!)

When inserted properly, you won’t even notice it’s there.

REASONS TO LOVE CUPS!

REUSABLE

A kinder option for the planet. 1 cup saves 3,000 pads/tampons from landfill.

LASTS FOR YEARS

Say good-bye to the tampon aisle!
Your wallet will thank you too.

HOLDS 2-4 TAMPONS WORTH

This means less bathroom trips!

DO I PICK A SOFT OR FIRM CUP?

NO... IT CAN'T GET LOST INSIDE YOU!

Your body won’t allow the cup to move outside of the vaginal canal.
With practice, removing your cup will be a piece of cake!

Knowing the best technique will help you have a stress-free removal experience. Watch this video before removing.

A TEEN SIZED CUP FOR BEGINERS!

Many teenagers use menstrual cups.
Some are able to make the cup work right away. Others need to practise for a few cycles (and that’s normal!)

It’s not an all-or-nothing experience. It’s okay to insert the cup one centimeters the first day, and call that a win! Try again when you’re feeling comfortable. Eventually you’ll be able to position the cup so that you can’t even feel it.

Teenagers can use a cup as soon as they feel comfortable and confident to try it out.
The Saalt teen cup is a smaller fit to make starting out with a cup easier!

WHAT AGE CAN TEENS USE A CUP?
AS SOON AS THEY'RE READY TO TRY!

WHAT ABOUT CLEANING IT?

The Saalt cup is made from medical grade silicone.
If you clean it properly, it’s very hygienic.
