Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much waste do I save when I use a menstrual cup? + -

    According to our calculations, one Yoni cup, which has been used for 10 years, replaces at least 2,400 tampons.

  • What is my Yoni cup made of? + -

    Yoni cup is made of medical grade silicone. This material is specially made to stay safe in your body for a long time. The cup is 100% plastic, latex and BPA-free. In addition, the material of the cup is extra soft and flexible so that it is comfortable.

  • Which incontinence material do I need (how many drops)? + -

    There is incontinence material for different amounts of urine loss. This is indicated by the number of drops on the package. For light urine loss caused for example, by stress incontinence or urge incontinence, a product with 1 to 4 drops will do. This will absorb anything from a few drops to a dribble. It might take some trial and error to figure out which one works best for you. If you are experiencing heavy leaks or surges, try incontinence material with 5 drops and up. To prevent skin irritation, use incontinence material made from organic cotton. This is soft on your skin, comfortable and breathable.

    Different activities and situations might call for different types of incontinence material. In this article we recommend which incontinence material to use in different situations.

    • Yoni Pee Leak Pads Extra (4 droplets): absorption of minimal 70 grams

    • Yoni Pee Leak Pads Mini (2 droplets): absorption of minimal 30 grams

    • Yoni Pee Leak Pantyliners Ultra Mini (1 droplet): absorption of minimal 15 grams

  • What’s the difference between menstrual pads and incontinence material? + -

    Incontinence material is made specifically to absorb urine which is thinner and comes out in larger quantities than menstrual blood. Also, incontinence material has natural odour control to protect you against the odour that is released from urine. Menstrual pads are made specifically to absorb menstrual blood and discharge which is a thicker consistency than urine.

  • Can you use menstrual pads/sanitary pads for urine loss? + -

    For the best protection against urine loss, it’s best to use incontinence material and not menstrual pads or liners. Menstrual products work differently than incontinence material. Incontinence material is made specifically to absorb urine which is thinner and comes out in larger quantities than menstrual blood. Also, Yoni incontinence material has natural odour control to protect you against the odour that is released from urine. So, it’s best to use incontinence products for urine loss to get the best protection you need. If you are on your period and also experiencing urine loss then it is fine to use menstrual pads/sanitary pads.

  • What are the benefits of organic cotton incontinence material? + -

    Cotton is soft and breathable which decreases the chance of irritation around your vulva and vagina. Many incontinence material brands put plastics and absorbent chemicals like superabsorbent polymer (SAP) which can cause irritation. Yoni pads and liners for urine loss do not contain these chemicals and are made of 100% organic cotton.

  • How many years can I use my menstrual cup? + -

    You can use the cup for up to 10 years. This makes the cup a sustainable alternative to tampons or pads. The cup may change color through use, but this is normal. As long as the cup is not damaged, you can just use it.

  • How many hours can I wear my Yoni cup? + -

    The cup should be emptied within 12 hours. You can wear it for up to 12 hours, depending on your blood loss. When you first use the cup, we recommend emptying it more regularly so that you get to know your own flow.

  • Can I have sex when I’m using my cup? + -

    Keep in mind that the cup is not a form of contraception or STI prevention. Of course you can have sex during your period, but always remove your cup first.

  • Am I at risk of getting Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) when I’m using the cup? + -

    TSS is a rare condition that arises from an overgrowth of a certain type of bacteria. TSS is known to affect menstruating women, especially those who use super absorbent tampons. Still, TSS is a rare condition with 3 to 6 cases in 100,000 people every year. TSS is not only related to the use of tampons. TSS comes from toxic bacteria that shock the body. This bacteria can be transmitted through surgery, childbirth and other infections. You reduce the chance of TSS by following the instructions of the menstrual products. For specific questions about TSS, we recommend that you make an appointment with your doctor.

  • How do I clean my cup? + -

    Before you insert the cup, it is important to properly clean it. You can clean the cup by boiling it in water for 5 minutes. Wash your hands well before inserting the cup.

  • Can I flush Yoni tampons or pads? + -

    Yoni tampons and pads are biodegradable but we do not recommend flushing them as all tampons and pads can cause blockages in your plumbing or septic systems.
