Common concerns and questions about the Nyla Cups, providing our customers with the confidence to choose and use the product that best suits their needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know which Nyla Cup size is right for me?

Choosing the right size depends on several factors including your flow, cervix height, and whether you've given birth vaginally. Our Selene Cup is designed for those with a lower cervix, while the Hera Cup is ideal for those with a higher cervix. Check our size guide or consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice.

What makes the Selene Cup different from the Hera Cup in terms of sizing?

The Selene Cup is crafted to comfortably fit if you have a lower cervix, meaning it's a bit shorter in height. On the other hand, the Hera Cup has a longer handle, designed to cater to those with a higher cervix, ensuring easy insertion and removal.

Can I use a Nyla Cup if I have never used a menstrual cup before?

Absolutely! Nyla Cups are designed for both first-time and experienced menstrual cup users. We recommend starting with the smallest size for beginners and exploring which of our designs feels most comfortable for your body.

How long can I wear my Nyla Cup before it needs to be emptied?

Nyla Cups can be worn for up to 12 hours, depending on your flow. However, we recommend checking it every 4-6 hours when you're first getting to know your cup and your flow.

How do I insert and remove the Nyla Cup safely?

To insert, fold the Nyla Cup and gently insert it into the vagina, allowing it to open and create a seal. To remove, gently pull on the stem of the Hera Cup or pinch the base of the Selene Cup to break the seal, then pull down and out. Always wash your hands before insertion and removal.

How should I clean my Nyla Cup between cycles?

Boil your Nyla Cup for 5-7 minutes in an open pot of water to sterilize it. Ensure the cup doesn't touch the bottom of the pot directly to avoid damage. Let it dry and store it in the breathable bag provided.

What are Nyla Cups made of, and are they safe to use?

Nyla Cups are made from medical-grade silicone that is BPA-free, latex-free, and free of chemicals and toxins. They are designed to meet the highest standards of safety and comfort.

Is it possible to experience leakage with Nyla Cups, and how can I prevent it?

Properly inserted, Nyla Cups should form a seal that prevents leaks. If you experience leakage, it may be due to incorrect insertion or a size mismatch. Make sure the cup is fully open and that it's the right size for your cervix height and flow.

Can I engage in physical activities while wearing a Nyla Cup?

Yes, you can! Nyla Cups are designed to stay in place so you can continue with sports, swimming, and any other physical activities without worry.

How do I choose between the Selene Cup and the Hera Cup?

Choose the Selene Cup if you know you have a lower cervix or prefer a shorter cup due to comfort preferences. Opt for the Hera Cup if you have a high cervix or if you're looking for a cup with an easy-to-reach handle for simple removal.
