My menstrual cup is leaking – why?

You finally decided to take the plunge and purchase LaliCup. Hurray, welcome to the club! 🥳 But after testing it a couple of times you can still find a blood drop or two on your panties and, let’s face it, there is nothing quite as frustrating as a leaking menstrual cup.

So, should you lose hope in all menstrual cups? Absolutely not! Leaks are super easy to troubleshoot and fix once you’ve figured out why they occur.

The biggest reasons for leaking cups:

·         You are a new cup user and getting used to a menstrual cup may very well just be a part of the learning curve.

·         The cup is too small. When purchasing a menstrual cup, you ought to consider a few factors: have you given birth, do you have strong pelvic floor muscles, are you already sexually active…

·         The cup isn’t inserted properly. After insertion LaliCup will ‘pop’ open and form a watertight seal. If the cup hasn’t opened completely, try using a different folding technique. We have a bunch of short instructional videos on the most common folding methods that you can check here.

·         Did you check your cervix height? If the cervix sits ​​low in the vagina we recommend a smaller cup. In case you cannot touch your cervix with a finger, don’t fret, we created the XL/high cervix model just for you.

Ready to throw in the towel anyway?   I get it, one can only deal with a limited amount of failed attempts. You might need to put the cup on the side-line for a moment and try again later. Regardless, we’ve got you covered. You can find different alternatives in our store from period panties to washable pads until you are ready to give the cup another go.
