How Long Can You Wear A Menstrual Cup?


Menstrual cups are still foreign in many ways. One of the biggest concerns many have when wearing menstrual cups is how long you're able to go between changing/emptying your cup and what risks are involved when wearing an internal device for long periods of time. You have questions, and we have answers! 

How long can I wear my menstrual cup?

SckoonCup, and many other menstrual cups, can be safely worn for 8+ hours due to the nature and materials of the cup. SckoonCup is made using soft medical grade silicone, molded in one piece, and it safely collects (rather than absorbs) your menstrual flow.  

Wearing it 8+ hours, doesn't that put me at risk for TSS?

Currently, menstrual cups are not linked to TSS. That said - always practice safe hygiene and be sure to talk to your OBGYN if you have any concerns.

So, why are menstrual cups not linked to TSS the way tampons are? As we just touched on above, SckoonCup collects your flow where tampons absorb your flow. Tampons not only absorb your flow they also absorb the important moisture within your vagina, making it a perfect breeding ground.

Can I swim in a menstrual cup?

Absolutely! SckoonCup is safely tucked away inside and forms a seal, keeping the menstrual flow inside your cup and helping to prevent any unnecessary liquids (such as pool water) from getting inside.  

Can I sleep in a menstrual cup?

Absolutely! As SckoonCup can be safely worn for 8+ hours, you can feel confident knowing you will have a long, restful night without having to get up every few hours to change your pad or tampon.
