Menstrual Cups & Infection - Does It Happen?

With TSS being a constant concern for many, we completely understand if you're worried about any possible risk when it comes to menstrual cups. 

It's important to note, we always recommend using clean hands when handling your menstrual cup. Always thoroughly wash your cup in between uses. Never use a menstrual cup at the same time as tampons.

Proper cleaning, care, and handling may help to reduce any risk of infection.

What is the risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) with SckoonCup?

SckoonCup has not been associated with Toxic Shock Syndrome (T.S.S), which is linked with bacteria, high absorbency tampons and prolonged use. Please always use safe handling and cleaning practices when using your SckoonCup or any internally worn device.

If you have suffered from T.S.S, it is recommended that you do not use any internal form of sanitary products. Always consult with your medical care provider.

Are menstrual cups associated with an increased risk of bacterial or yeast infections?

Menstrual cups have undergone rigorous reviews for over 30 years, and SckoonCup is a medical device approved by FDA for its safety. There is no evidence that menstrual cups increase the risk of yeast or bacterial infections, but for your own health, we recommend you to read our User Guide carefully and follow the guidelines carefully.

If you are currently experiencing a yeast or bacterial infection, it is generally recommended you do not use an internal menstrual product unless approved by your medical professional.


If you have any health conditions or concerns, we recommend to consult your physician.

Can I use SckoonCup while using vaginally-administered medication to clear up an infection?

If you have a vaginal infection, we recommend you do not use any internally worn hygiene products such as tampons or menstrual cups. Should you have any concerns, we suggest that you check with your physician or dermatologist.

Please avoid putting any medication on your SckoonCup as that may impact the materials of your cup.
