Can I still use a Silky Cup (reusable menstrual cup) if
I’m a virgin?
Yes, although you may need a little more practice. It is also recommended to use a water-based lubricant (if the lubricant says ‘safe for condoms’ it is safe for Silky Cup (reusable menstrual cup) as well) in order to make insertion as comfortable as possible. There may be some discomfort as Silky Cup (reusable menstrual cup) may stretch the hymen in a similar way that tampons would.
Silky Cup (reusable menstrual cup) does not affect the state of a woman’s ‘virginity’ although it may cause the hymen to stretch. If concerned about the hymen or any other gynaecological concerns, it’s important that you talk to your health care professional. If there is any discomfort, discontinue use and contact your physician.
Why is Silky Cup (reusable menstrual cup) healthier
Vaginas are self-cleansing and naturally produce fluid that ‘cleanses.’ Tampons absorb this fluid and can disrupt the normal acidic vaginal environment. Silky Cup, on the other hand, is made of medical grade TPE and doesn’t absorb this fluid – it catches so it won’t cause the dryness associated with tampons.
