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.
Switching to a menstrual cup is a big step. That's why we've created the June Cup Size Quiz here: https://thejunecup.com/pages/cup-quiz
Mini: We recommend a "mini" for teens and petite anatomy. If you suspect you have more than light to normal flow, we recommend you size up to the small.
Small: We recommend a "small" for those who have a normal to heavy flow but have not given birth vaginally. If you have given birth vaginally, we recommend you size up to the large.
Large: We recommend a "large" for those who have given birth vaginally or been diagnosed with a condition called Menorrhagia.
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.
Yes the June Cup is FDA registered. See here for the Registered Owner Operator Number: 10079962 & Medical Device Registration Number: D361158
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.
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 evaluating your June Cup every year to determine if you need a replacement.
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 your health care provider before switching to a menstrual cup.
Yes, the cup sits low in your vaginal canal below your cervix which is the opening to your uterus.
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.
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.
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.
The June Cup sits below your cervix in your vaginal canal. If placed correctly, you shouldn't feel it at all.
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.
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.
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.
We do not recommend using the June Cup during sex since the cup should sit low in the vaginal canal just below the cervix.
While each June Cup comes individually wrapped and sealed directly from the manufacturer, we recommend sanitizing your cup before initial use by placing in boiling water for 5 minutes.
You can clean the June Cup with mild soap and warm water during your period. We recommend using our unscented or pH balanced June Cup Wash, found here: https://thejunecup.com/products/june-cup-wash
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.
Do not use vinegar, tea tree oil, scented soap, castile or peppermint soap, oil based soap, rubbing alcohol, anti bacterial soap, hand sanitizer, dish soap, hydrogen peroxide or harsh chemicals to clean your cup as this can damage the silicone and cause irritation and discomfort.
The June Cup is made of medical grade silicone which means it can be worn for up to 5 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 evaluating your June Cup every year.
Our period underwear is designed to provide you with the extra boost of confidence you need during your period. We generally recommend they be worn in addition to a cup or tampon, but if you have a light to medium flow, you can wear them alone but may need to change them more frequently.
The great thing about our period underwear is that they're reusable! We generally recommend you wear each pair for 12 hours before changing them. You can also wear them overnight for added protection – however, if your flow is heavy, you may need to wear a cup as backup.
Yes! June Period Underwear has passed safety and quality testing for usage and materials. They have been tested for formaldehyde, fiber content, flammability, AZO dyes and colorants and PFAs.
