Often one of the biggest questions we receive is "how much can a menstrual cup hold?" The short answer? Way more than a tampon!
Whether you have a heavy flow or a light flow, it can be hard to judge just how much a menstrual cup can hold and how frequently you need to empty it. Since menstrual cups collect the flow rather than absorb it, a menstrual cup offers a higher capacity than a tampon while providing up to 8+ hours of coverage. With tampons, you may be changing (and tossing) your tampon every couple of hours. On light days, you may be surprised at just how long you can go with your menstrual cup, although you should empty your cup at least every 12 hours (maximum).
