As with anything new, it takes a bit of practise getting used to. Try inserting & removing your cup a few times when you start your period to get used to the feeling*
THE FIRST TIME I USED THE CUP, IT WAS HARD TO INSERT
Yes! The Talula Cup does not go as high as the IUD, therefore you can use both.
CAN I USE A TALULA CUP IF I HAVE AN IUD/COIL?
During your period, you can rinse your Talula Cup with warm water after each use. Once your period is over, boil your Talula Cup for a few minutes before replacing it into it's bag for next time.
HOW DO I CLEAN MY TALULA CUP?
The Talula Cup might take a few periods before you get the hang of inserting it properly. We find moving it around so it fully opens helps & wearing a pad for the first few days is good for peace of mind.
MY TALULA CUP SEEMS TO BE LEAKING
The average women spends £1200 on tampons alone in her lifetime. With the right care, the Talula Cup can last you up to 10 years, we reckon that's a pretty good investment.
THE CUP IS EXPENSIVE, HOW CAN I JUSTIFY BUYING IT?
The Talula cup can remain inside you while you sleep, for up to 10 hours. The cup remains sealed even when laying down. As long as it has been inserted correctly, the cup won’t leak.
CAN I SLEEP WITH MY TALULA CUP INSIDE ME?
After you have given birth your cervix needs time to return to its normal shape, so it is best not to insert anything during this time. When you resume your periods (usually after breastfeeding) you can start to use your Talula Cup safely.
CAN I USE THE TALULA CUP IF I'VE JUST HAD A BABY?
*Remember, it's important you don't pull on the stem to remove your cup. Menstrual cups act like a suction to catch blood, so to avoid any internal damage when you remove them, you need to break the suction seal.
In our instructions we suggest you lightly twist your cup to break the seal, however you can also gently squeeze it at the bottom too. This breaks the seal through the tiny holes at the top of the cup. This BBC video is useful if you need to see what we mean! Read more on how to be safe using your cup here.
