How Frequently Do I Need To Replace My Menstrual Cup?

 

Figuring out when to replace your menstrual cup is mostly based on your own experience with the cup. Many menstrual cup companies recommend you replace your cup every year to two years, while some claim you can safely wear your cup for 5+ years. Unlike some menstrual cups which suggest you replace them after one year, SckoonCup is made of best possible quality medical grade silicone, and will last several years. There is no need to replace it every year.

With that in mind, it's important to note that the FDA recommends replacing your cup every two years. 

So how can you tell when it is time to replace your cup? Easy! If there is any change in the material of your SckoonCup (for example if it splits or becomes sticky), or there is any change in the shape of your SckoonCup, then it will need replacing. If your cup is reaching the point where it is no longer comfortable to use, there have been any changes to the material (beyond staining) or feel of the cup - these are all important signs to look out for. 

Some users choose to replace their cup more often due to aesthetic reasons, since it is natural to have some staining over time (that’s another reason we use FDA approved colored silicone). Staining does not affect the hygiene or effectiveness of SckoonCup, though. You can prevent discoloring to some extent by always rinsing the cup with cold water before cleaning, and by using a mild, unscented soap.

Fortunately, with proper handling and care, your SckoonCup will last a long time, helping to save you money in the long run as well as keeping those pesky disposable pads and tampons out of landfills. That's a win-win in our book!
