How Long Does A Menstrual Cup Last?

Most companies say that with proper care their menstrual cups can last for 10 years (making it an amazingly
economical period solution). Other companies recommend changing the cup every 1-2 years.

We recommend going by sight and feel. If your cup isn’t cracked, turning chalky or sticky then it is
safe to continue using. A discoloured cup doesn’t need to be replaced, it just needs to be boiled and
sterilised.  Read our article on how to clean your cup, it'll soon look as good as new.

Most of us here at The Period Lady have been using out cups for many many years and they are still in perfect
condition.  Read our article for a cost comparison between disposables and reusables to see how much you can save by using a cup.
