The Concept Insertion Removal & Reuse Questions
sideview comparisonMade of a soft, highly pliable medical-grade, latex-free silicone rubber, Miacup is a barrier that, like a tampon, is worn inside the vagina during menstruation. Unlike a tampon (which absorbs menstrual fluid) or a pad (which catches it outside the body), Miacup collects menstrual fluid.

Resembling a small bell-shaped cup approximately 5cm in length (excluding pull-tab), Miacup is compactly folded and then completely inserted into the vagina where it pops open to create a secure seal with the vaginal wall.

Between cycles, Miacup can be fully sterilised by placing it in a pot of boiling water for a few minutes or by wiping with some isopropyl rubbing alcohol. With reasonable care, a single Miacup can last for years.
