Why choose the menstrual cup Yuuki?
Advantages of Yuuki
98% of women who have tried the cup would not opt for anything else
Everybody’s different, but the cup should easily last you for 3 to 10 hours. Even up to 12 hours if you don’t menstruate so heavily.
The cup won’t move, as it is held in place by the vaginal muscles as well as by the weak vacuum that forms inside the cup.
Menstrual blood itself does not smell. The typical odour that occurs during menstruation is the result of a combination of blood and the chemicals in panty liners and tampons. This does not apply to you if you use a menstrual cup.
The cup is made from very high-quality medical grade silicone, and so there is no risk of allergies or infections.
Unlike panty liners and tampons, which you have to keep on buying, the menstrual cup is environmentally-friendly to use. The cup can easily last you for 10 years, or even all your life, as it is made from medical grade silicone, which is normally used for implants during operations.

Most frequently asked questions about menstrual cups
Yuuki offers two sizes. One for women who have already given birth and one for women under 28 years of age who have not yet given birth. The Yuuki cups come in two sizes: No. 1 - small and No. 2 - big. The difference between the small and big cups is one of the biggest differences among those offered by cup manufacturers.
You can find the sizes on our blog .
If you do it correctly and carefully, it should not be painful. Women who have not yet had sexual intercourse may have some problems at the beginning, but they will pass with time. The vagina is able to stretch to allow a baby’s head to pass through it, and the cup is many times smaller. When inserting the cup, you can lubricate it with water or with lubricating gel. When inserting the cup, press its bottom to release the vacuum and take it out carefully.
Most manufacturers state ten years. Theoretically, it can last till the end of one’s life because it is made of the same type of silicone as that implanted during surgery. It is up to you whether to purchase a new cup. We provide a two-year warranty on the Yuuki cup.
No, not if it has been inserted correctly and is emptied before it gets completely full. After inserting the cup, you need to turn it slightly and pull it a bit, to create a vacuum to make the cup stick to the vagina wall.
It depends on your period. The intensity of every woman’s menstrual flow varies. If your menstruation is average to heavy, you should empty the cup every 3 to 10 hours. Some women with very low menstruation may even go 12 hours before emptying the cup.
On heavier menstruation days, you may have to empty your cup more often. If you have tried already the big cup and have seen that you have to empty it every three hours, you have an extremely heavy period. That need not be a problem but you should discuss it with your doctor. There are means of controlling such heavy menstruation.

This dangerous disease is caused by bacteria that multiply inside absorbent materials, such as tampons. If you use them, be careful and do not underestimate the symptoms: severe flu, aching muscles, stomach cramps, head and neck pain, a sudden rise in body temperature above 39 °C, diarrhoea and vomiting, sudden drops in pressure and rapid heartbeat, often accompanied by a feeling of weakness, dizziness, a rash (this may occur on various parts of the body or just in specific places such as the armpit or groin area).
Unlike pads and tampons, the cup is made of a material that is designed to be inserted into the body and
does not cause any health complications and has been used in healthcare for 60 years. Thanks to its material,
the cup does not change the pH of the vagina, does not dry out, does not risk allergies and does not support
the growth of bacteria like a tampon. The risk of toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is significantly lower with
the cup than with the tampon, but it still exists.
If you have previously been diagnosed with toxic shock syndrome, then do not use any internal vaginal devices or the YUUKI cup.

I admit that I was first drawn to the Yuuki menstrual cup because of the name and its likeness to something Japanese sounding. As a lover of all things from the East, it made me curious. However, the Yuuki is not from that part of the globe at all – it’s actually from the Czech Republic, while the cup itself is made from German medical-grade silicone.
