Frequently Asked Questions

What material is the June Cup made of?

The June Cup is made of 100% medical-grade silicone. So you don't have to worry about harsh chemicals or synthetic fibers getting into your body.

Where is the June Cup produced and manufactured?

We use medical grade silicone sourced from Germany to produce the June Cup. Our cups are molded and manufactured in FDA registered facilities in China. All orders ship from our warehouse in Los Angeles, CA.

How long can I wear it?

You can wear the June Cup for up to 12 hours. We recognize that menstrual flow can range widely therefore you may need to empty your cup more frequently and that is perfectly fine.

Is the June Cup reusable?

Yes it is. Vaginal pH and acidity levels can vary from person to person, and can significantly wear on your cup. With that said we recommend to replace the JUNE cup every year.

Is there any risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS)?

The June Cup is made of 100% medical-grade silicone, which means there's little risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome. If you’ve previously been diagnosed with TSS, make sure to consult with your health care provider before switching to a menstrual cup.

Can I use the cup if I have a tilted/retroverted uterus?

Yes, the cup sits low in your vaginal canal below your cervix which is the opening to your uterus.

Can I use the cup if I have an IUD?

Yes, while you can use the cup with an IUD, we always recommend consulting with your health care provider first before trying out a new form of menstrual care. Always remember to break the seal of your cup before attempting to remove it.

Can I use the cup if I have bladder or pelvic floor prolapse?

We do not recommend a menstrual cup if you have been diagnosed with bladder or pelvic floor prolapse as the suction created by the cup may aggravate your pre-existing diagnosis. If you'd still like to give it a try, we highly recommend you consult your physician before making the switch.

How do I insert the cup?

The June Cup can be inserted in a number of ways. Try one of two recommended folds. The c-fold and punch-down fold explained in detail on our "How-To" page. There are a number of ways to fold your cup so take some time to explore what works best for you.

Will I be able to feel it?

The June Cup sits below your cervix in your vaginal canal. If placed correctly, you shouldn't feel it at all.

What should I do if I feel pressure on my bladder?

If you've placed your cup incorrectly, you may feel a pressure sensation on your bladder. We recommend you gently remove and re-insert the cup. When placed correctly, you should not feel any pressure sensation on your bladder.

How do I remove the cup?

Use the June Cup's security stem and three halos as your guide to place your index finger and thumb around the base of the cup. Pinch the base and slowly pull down out of your vaginal canal.

What should I do if my cup is stuck/lost?

It's not uncommon for your cup to move around a bit in your vagina to ensure a proper seal. The most important thing is to relax. Try sitting in a squatted position on the floor or on the toilet and gently push using your pelvic floor muscles. This usually lowers the cup a bit and you can use your fingers to locate the security stem to complete removal.

How do I clean the cup?

You can clean the June Cup with mild soap and warm water during your period. We recommend unscented or pH balanced soap. We do not recommend using anti-bacterial soap. While this is great for washing your hands, it can strip your vagina of its healthy bacteria and natural flora and cause a yeast infection. Before use and between cycles, you can sanitize your cup by placing it in boiling water for 5 minutes.

How often should I replace my cup?

The June Cup is made of medical grade silicone which means it can be worn for up to 10 years. However, vaginal pH and acidity levels can vary from person to person, and can significantly wear on your cup. With that said we recommend replacing the cup once a year.
