    A menstrual cup is a healthier, more eco-responsible alternative to pads and tampons. It is a small silicone cup that folds and inserts like a tampon, but works better and lasts longer. VOXAPOD® collects your menstrual fluid rather than absorbing it, which means there are no fibers emitting toxins into your body. There's no irritation. No dryness. No unnatural smell or odors from our menstrual cup (Yep, you heard me. Period stink-free). No strings. No padding. No interrupting your natural pH balance. VOXAPOD® is so comfortable, you will most likely forget it's even there.

    VOXAPOD is folded and inserted into the vaginal cavity, much like a tampon. When inserted correctly, the cup should unfold and create a gentle seal with your vaginal wall. For maximum comfort, the cup is designed to contour and move with your body during physical activities and other lifestyle demands. There is little to no sensation of the cup when properly inserted. Most women forget they are wearing it. The cup needs to be emptied at least every 12 hours, but can be worn overnight. It can be worn during showering or bathing and does not need to be removed when going to the bathroom.

    All VOXAPOD® menstrual cups are manufactured (Certified to ISO 9001:2008) in the United States using 100% FDA-approved medical-grade silicone, as well as complying with our own company core values that seeks the very best for your health and the environment. The premium medical-grade silicone used to manufacture VOXAPOD is the same silicone used for human implantation (not breast implants) by the medical industry. All of our products are made and tested in the United States. We consciously consider the sources of every part of the production process that goes into making VOXAPOD products. In doing so, we don't skimp anywhere if it means compromising quality or values. We have your health and your body at the forefront of our decision-making process. Always.

    VOXAPOD® is safe for human use and made with biocompatible, FDA-approved medical grade silicone in a clean room manufacturing facility that complies with FDA (Food and Drug Administration) regulation. All VOXAPOD cups are manufactured using the highest industry standards and regulation. The medical grade silicone used to manufacture VOXAPOD does not leach chemicals or toxins, and is BPA, latex-free, and not tested on animals. We consciously consider the sources of every part of the production process that goes into making VOXAPOD products. In doing so, we don't skimp anywhere if it means compromising quality or values.

    All VOXAPOD products are made in the USA at a facility that is registered and regulated by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). Our manufacturing facility is ISO 9001:2015 Certified and ISO 13485:2016 Certified, which ensures that VOXAPOD is made in compliance with the requirements for continual improvement and customer satisfaction set forth by the International Organization of Standardization.

    Sadly, not all menstrual cups adhere to these standards, so be sure to do your homework before making a purchase.

    Yes! VOXAPOD is one of the only menstrual cups in the market that tested prototypes with a large group of diverse participants to receive user feedback that informed our final design. With over 18 months of research and development with our test group, we are proud to say VOXAPOD was created by women for everyone.

    VOXAPOD is animal cruelty-free and vegan.

    Always do your research and exercise caution when making a menstrual cup purchase, as there are several menstrual cups available in the market today that are manufactured with questionable and compromising materials and methods. To ensure your VOXAPOD is an authentic original, our logo is embossed on the product. VOXAPOD® is utility patent-pending and protected by the USTPO (United States Trademark and Patent Office).

    Yes. VOXAPOD is for all menstruators. It is designed to accommodate all shapes and sizes. And yet, just like our bodies, every cup is a little different. We've made a few special (and important) design tweaks based on real human feedback to create something pretty cool to period-proof your day.

    VOXAPOD only uses the best FDA-approved, materials with your health and the environment in mind. With proper care, your VOXAPOD will last for several years. The FDA recommends replacing a menstrual cup every 2-3 years. Some users choose to replace their cup more often because of its personal nature. We recommend that you inspect your cup regularly and replace it with any signs of deterioration.

    While most users can wear either size VOXAPOD, it is best to choose based on cervix height during menstruation, flow amount, and general physique. Age and birthing history are not great indicators for sizing. Please visit our Sizing Guide page for more information.

    Cervix Height

    Your cervix is the small opening that allows menstrual flow to be released from the uterus into the vaginal cavity. It can be felt with your finger and feels like a small donut-shaped nub with an indention in the middle. Your cervix height often varies during your cycle, and is commonly at its lowest point during your heaviest flow days.

    With clean hands, gently insert your longest finger until you feel your cervix along the vaginal wall. It may be soft or firm depending on where you’re at in your cycle. The following describes the variation in measurement:

    Low Cervix: You can feel your cervix with your finger inserted less than half way.

    Medium Cervix: You can feel your cervix with your finger inserted to the middle knuckle.

    High Cervix: You can feel your cervix with your finger inserted beyond the middle knuckle or cannot reach your cervix at all.

    When VOXAPOD is inserted correctly, it should not cause discomfort. If the cup is inserted too deep into the vaginal canal and positioned in contact with the cervix, it can cause discomfort. For optimal comfort, your VOXAPOD should be positioned beneath the cervix.

    Low Cervix Note:

    VOXAPOD is one of the shortest menstrual cups on the market and able to accommodate low cervix better than most cups. The cup itself is designed to sit low away from the cervix at the base of the vaginal canal. The stem may be trimmed to a desired length for your comfort.

    Care + Cleaning

    To sterilize your menstrual cup before your first use and between cycles, fully submerge your VOXAPOD in boiling water for 5-7 minutes. Do not leave unattended and be sure there is enough boiling water to keep the cup from sitting directly on the bottom of the pan where it could be damaged. Be careful removing the cup from the boiling water as contents will be hot and could burn you. If using immediately, run cold water over the menstrual cup to bring it to a comfortable temperature for insertion. Otherwise, allow cup to cool and completely air-dry before storing.

    Do not wash your VOXAPOD in the dishwasher, as dishwasher detergents often contain harsh chemicals that can cause irritation or compromise the integrity of the silicone of your cup.

    Rinse your VOXAPOD with cold water first (to help prevent discoloration) and then wash it with warm water before and after each use. If using a mild soap to clean your menstrual cup or other natural purpose cleaning product that could leave residue, please note that it could cause irritation upon insertion or deteriorate the silicone of your menstrual cup.

    If water is not accessible, you may wipe the cup with a clean tissue or just empty and re-insert directly, rinsing at the next opportunity.

    DO NOT USE bleach, vinegar, tea tree oil, scented soap, oil based soap, alcohol, hand sanitizer, hydrogen peroxide, antibacterial soap or other harsh cleaners or chemicals to clean your VOXAPOD.

    When cleaning your menstrual cup, make sure the suction holes are clear and clean. Removing build-up will allow the cup to seal properly. To remove debris, gently stretch each hole under running warm water.

    Always use safe-to-drink, potable, clean water to clean your VOXAPOD.

    After the cup is inserted, it forms a seal with the vaginal wall beneath the cervix, so that menstrual fluid being released through the cervix is collected inside the cup. The outside of the cup will typically be coated in your natural lubrication, making it easier to remove, empty and re-insert. If the cup is inserted after your period has already started, there may be some blood on the outside of the cup from your flow.

    If properly inserted and removed, fluid of any kind should be minimal. There is a learning curve for most users in the beginning that may require practice to ensure that your VOXAPOD is properly sealed upon insertion.

    No problem. Wash your hands really well before heading into the stall. Carefully remove your menstrual cup, empty the contents into the toilet, wipe the outside of the cup with a clean tissue for re-insertion, or rinse your cup with water from a water bottle, and re-insert your cup. It's pretty simple. Just mind the lubrication on the outside of your cup, which can make it a bit slippery. You can wash your cup more thoroughly at your convenience or upon returning home. For more great tips on how to clean your menstrual cup in a public bathroom, check out our blog post covering the topic HERE.

    Once your VOXAPOD is properly cleaned and dry, it can be stored in its original storage container. Do not store your cup in an airtight container as there is no airflow to allow moisture to evaporate.

    Provide the answer to the question here.

    It is not uncommon for menstrual cups to discolor over time with use for various reasons. Mild to moderate discoloration does not impact the performance of your VOXAPOD. We recommend that you regularly inspect your VOXAPOD and replace it if there are signs of deterioration. To help prevent discoloration, rinse your cup with cold water before washing it with mild soap and warm water.

    With proper care and cleaning, your VOXAPOD should remain odorless. If your cup develops an unusual odor or smell, this could be the result of wearing your cup past the recommended time, or using a harsh cleaner, in which case the integrity of the silicone may have been compromised and your cup should be replaced. Foul odor can also be a symptom of common vaginal infections. If you suspect the odor may also be coming form you vaginal area, please consult with your doctor.

    Nope. No worries on this one. Your vagina is not a black hole that leads to the great unknown (although that could be argued); it is a muscular tube about 4-5 inches deep that has an opening and an end. VOXAPOD is inserted just inside the opening of the vagina and is uniquely designed to hold in place the entire time that you wear it. Whew!

    The fear of losing or getting your menstrual cup stuck in your vagina is a common one amongst users. It’s a bit like being 13 again, staring at a tampon and wondering how it is going to work. There is a learning curve to using a menstrual cup, and it can take a few cycles before you feel comfortable inserting and removing your cup. With practice, most users figure out the best fold and position for inserting and removal, and often describe finding a placement (‘sweet spot’) within their vaginal canal that feels the most comfortable to them.

    VOXAPOD is folded and inserted into the vaginal cavity, much like a tampon. There are different folds you can use to insert your VOXAPOD. Regardless of which fold you prefer, this can take some practice to learn what works best for you and at which angle inserting is the easiest. The cup should remain folded until all the way inside the vaginal cavity, at which point releasing your grip will allow the cup to open up inside the vaginal cavity forming a gentle seal with the vaginal wall to prevent leaking. There is a learning curve and familiarizing yourself with your own anatomy when first learning to use a menstrual cup. Most women will require 2-3 full cycles of use with their VOXAPOD before sorting out which insertion method and approach works best for them.

    There are three common folds that women use when inserting their VOXAPOD. You may want to practice all of the folding methods to find out which method works best for you. Be sure to keep your cup folded until it is completely inside of your vaginal cavity.

    VOXAPOD should be positioned completely inside the vaginal cavity below your cervix in order to ‘catch’ your flow. The positioning varies slightly with each woman depending on how high or low their cervix is and how curved or straight their vaginal canal is. After practicing for 2-3 cycles, most women will figure out where their ‘sweet spot’ is for positioning their cup. When VOXAPOD is inserted correctly, you should have a leak-free experience and have little to no sensation of the cup. This can take practice for some women, so be patient with yourself and remember to relax your vaginal muscles when inserting and removing.

    Tip: Some women spot from the menstrual fluid that is already in the canal prior to insertion ('phantom leak'), which is not an indicator that you inserted the cup improperly or that the cup is leaking. While first learning to use a cup, it can be helpful to wear period panties, a liner, or pad as backup and for peace of mind.

    Learning to insert your cup with ease can take practice. The most important thing to remember is to relax your pelvic muscles. You may need to try different folding methods and angles to figure out what works best for you. You may also try positioning your body in different ways to find the easiest insertion method: sitting on the toilet, propping one leg up on the side of the toilet or bathtub, stand with knees slightly bent, or in the shower with one leg up on the side of the shower wall. If you do not have success at first, come back to it at a later time rather than irritating the delicate tissue (vulva) around your vaginal opening.

    Most users require 2-3 cycles to figure out what positioning method for insertion works best for them. Stick with it, the payoff is huge and so worth it!

    We recommend you wet your cup with clean water to help facilitate insertion. When first learning to use a cup, practicing in the shower can be helpful. We do not recommend that you use other lubricants as they may compromise the silicone of your VOXAPOD or cause irritation to your skin.

    VOXAPOD offers up to 12 hours of leak-free protection. Women release anywhere from 2 Tablespoons to ½ cup of menstrual fluid (including clots) per cycle, with the average being 2-3 tablespoons per cycle. That means you will empty your cup based on how heavy your flow is, which will vary from woman to woman and whether it is a 'heavy' day or 'light' day. Most women can empty their cup once in the morning before starting their day and again before bed. Your cup should be emptied at least twice during a 24 hour period. Empty your cup more frequently on your heavy flow days, and do not to let your cup overflow during use. It is not necessary to empty your cup when you urinate or have a bowel movement.

    VOXAPOD can be worn safely overnight for up to 12 consecutive hours so you can sleep easy while wearing your menstrual cup. With time you will figure out how frequently to empty your cup at various points in your cycle. Sleeping with a menstrual cup, and not having to get up mid-slumber to change a pad or tampon, is one of the biggest benefits of using a cup.

    To remove your VOXAPOD, you need to break the suction by pinching the base of the cup. Do not try to remove the cup by pulling the stem alone. Use the stem to wiggle the cup to a point where you can reach the base of the cup to pinch at the indentions to release the suction seal of the cup. Most importantly, relax your vaginal muscles, and while holding the base indentions, gently pull VOXAPOD from the vaginal cavity, gently wiggling it back and forth if necessary to avoid painful removal of your menstrual cup. Remove at an angle to avoid spilling the contents of the cup.

    Note: If you find it difficult to reach your VOXAPOD, relax and use your vaginal muscles in a series of gentle, downward pushes to help move the cup to a descent where it can be easily reached. Position yourself on the toilet or in a slight squatting position if necessary, relaxing your pelvic muscles to allow the cup to move towards the vaginal opening. If you have further concerns, please seek medical advice from a physician.

    You can wear your VOXAPOD cup for up to 12 consecutive hours, but may find you need to empty it more frequently depending on your menstrual flow. We recommend you empty and clean your VOXAPOD at least 2-3 times in a 24-hour period. Empty your cup more frequently on your heavy flow days, and do not let your cup overflow during use. It is not necessary to empty your cup when you urinate or have a bowel movement. After several cycles of use, most users say they know how frequent and when to empty their VOXAPOD.

    You can trim or remove the stem of your VOXAPOD based on your personal preference. The purpose of the stem is to help you reach the base of your VOXAPOD for removal. If you experience protrusion, discomfort, or the menstrual cup stem hurts because you have a lower cervix, you can remove or trim it to a desired length. Never attempt to trim the stem of your VOXAPOD while in use.

    Never use the stem alone to remove your cup. You must first break the suction of your cup by pinching the grips at the base before attempting removal.

    Yes, you can swim while using a menstrual cup! We hope you not only swim your best lap time, but shower, surf, kiteboard, and float in the waters off the Polynesian Islands with your VOXAPOD. VOXAPOD does not absorb like alternative period products, such as pads and tampons. It creates a seal after being inserted that prevents that annoying diluted-bloody-water-run you get with absorbent disposables after being in the water. VOXAPOD collects your flow, rather than absorbing it, which allows you to swim care-free while your menstrual cup is in. As far as swimming and period care goes, the best menstrual cup can be a real game-changer.

    No more tucking tampon strings inside your swimsuit!

    VOXAPOD is period care that was innovated by an active woman to address the problems she was having with tampons when on adventures.

    VOXAPOD has a patent-pending, compact design that creates a foolproof seal to prevent leaks, and is shaped using flexible silicone to contour with the natural movements of your body. With up to 12 hours of leak-free protection, VOXAPOD helps you keep up with your lifestyle demands, whether it's running meetings all day, chasing kids, hardcore athletic training, military service, extensive travel, or a day hike in the woods. We got your backside. Literally and figuratively.

    Yes, many users do yoga and inversions while using their menstrual cup. However, some users prefer not to invert their bodies while menstruating as a personal choice. In other words, it’s your body, you call the shots.

    Many women use a menstrual cup while using an IUD or NuvaRing®. While the risk of early IUD expulsion due to menstrual cup use is a possibility, there is no evidence that demonstrates that women who use a menstrual cup for period management have a higher rate of early IUD expulsion, according to this study from US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health (NCBI) where nearly 750 women participated.

    VOXAPOD is one of the shortest cups on the market, making it one of the best menstrual cup options for an IUD user. Be sure to always break the suction seal of your VOXAPOD before removing it to help prevent expulsion.

    If you have questions about the use of your VOXAPOD and IUDs, please consult your physician for benefits and risks.

    Everyone’s body is different, so what works for one, may not work for another. Users with a retroverted or “tilted” uterus have successfully used VOXAPOD. Users with a severely ‘tilted’ uterus may need to practice which angle and method of insertion works best for them, which can take a few cycles.

    When VOXAPOD is inserted correctly, it should not cause discomfort. If the cup is inserted too deep into the vaginal canal and positioned in contact with the cervix, it can cause discomfort. For optimal comfort, your VOXAPOD should be positioned beneath the cervix.

    If you have questions or concerns, please consult with your physician.

    VOXAPOD should be used only for period care protection. VOXAPOD should always be removed prior to sexual intercourse. VOXAPOD menstrual cups should not be used as a form of birth control and they will not protect you from Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs).

    VOXAPOD is made from FDA-approved, medical-grade silicone. The healthcare industry has used medical-grade silicone for decades because studies have indicated that it is biocompatible for the human body. The VOXAPOD® cup is latex free and Bisphenol-A (BPA) free. If you experience sensitivity or discomfort when using your cup, discontinue use immediately and consult with your physician.

    VOXAPOD should only be used for period care protection, it should not be worn for pregnancy discharge or postnatal bleeding or for any other purposes.

    If you have a vaginal infection or are experiencing discomfort, discontinue use of your VOXAPOD immediately and consult with your physician. There are no known increased risks of infections with the use of a menstrual cup.

    Amazing for heavy workouts!!

    This cup is amazing – I ran with it today and all of my other menstrual cups have been an utter disaster for heavy workouts, but this one is awesome. Thank you so much! 😍

    Great first cup!

    I read a ton of reviews and watched a bunch of YouTube videos before I finally picked this for my first menstrual cup. Of course, my period showed up yesterday and I was both terrified and excited to try this thing out.

    I’m 41 and haven’t had children and absolutely no clue how high or low my cervix is, but I got the small size. I picked this cup because it seemed to be both a little firm where the structures are but soft everywhere else. I was afraid if I bought a cup that was too soft it wouldn’t open up and I might leak, and if I bought one that was too firm, it might be uncomfortable with my mind-numbing cramps or make it harder to go pee. I was hoping it would be my goldilocks firmness so I wouldn’t have to try several cups to get the right one. While, I haven’t tried other cups to compare it too, this cup does definitely seem to be perfect because it has both firmness and softness to it.

    Inserting the cup at first was a little awkward but not really hard. It definitely opened up right away. The guide that comes with the cup gives lots of helpful tips to make sure you have a good seal, and I followed all of them just to make sure I got it in right. I’ve read reviews on other cups where if the person sat a certain way they could feel the stem, and I was trying to avoid that with this cup. I’ve been able to leave the stem on and I can’t feel it regardless of what position I’m in or activity I’m doing.

    A few times throughout the day, I would feel a gush of flow coming out and was certain that I had just leaked everwhere, but when I checked there was nothing on my pad, so I believe it was just my flow releasing into the cup. After a few hours I took it out, just to make sure I didn’t overflow or anything. It was a bit tricky removing it my first time, but the stem and pinch grips, the way they are, make it fairly easy. The first time I think maybe I inserted it too far because I’m used to using tampons. I bared down a bit and it moved down where I was able to easily remove it without trouble or discomfort. Since, I don’t insert the cup as far and I haven’t had any issues since, but even if you did, it’s easy to just bare down a bit to help the process. The cup was less than half full, which made me feel like I could wear it overnight without a mess. I’m pleased to say I can now sleep all night without having to get up and change my tampon and pad (I wore both before to prevent leaks). This alone was worth the purchase to me. I hate wearing pads––they are so uncomfortable and smell. I also believe since using this product, my cramps are significantly less. I don’t know if it’s just in my head, but it really seems like they are better. All in all, this was a great first cup experience and I completely recommend it!

    I would give this ten stars if I could!

    Okay, I’ve been a cup user for over 12 years and had several cups over the years, most of them shaped basically the same way: conical with a harder stem. This cup’s design is a total game-changer, in my opinion. With all of my other cups, removing it was always a bit of a challenge because I would pinch at the base but the suction seal at the top would not break, so I would have to put my finger in and push the whole side of the cup in while I tried to pull it out otherwise it would be uncomfortable when removing the cup. This cup has a thicker line of silicone that goes from the bottom of the cup where you pinch for removal up to the suction hole at the top (basically acting as my finger used to do for removing other cups), so now I can just pinch at the base and the suction remains broken while I’m trying to remove the cup which is waaaaayyyyyy more comfortable! Goood gosh, what a smart design. Also, sometimes with my other cups the stem would poke me if I moved or sat a certain way and this one NEVER does. So, if you’re wondering if this cup really is that much better, it definitely is and I could see how it would reduce the learning curve for first-time cup users especially. If I could give this product ten stars, I would! THANK YOU!

    The design of this cup is better than others!

    I think the firmer lip on top is what helps it to be such an effective, secure product. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making it so much more comfortable to be a woman! I will continue to spread the word.

    Big fan and would totally recommend.

    I am one of the Kickstarter backers and wanted to write in to tell you how awesome your product is. Of the three cups I own, this one is by FAR the most comfortable. It conforms and seals itself properly with virtually no assistance, and I never leak with it compared to the other two, which would leak occasionally for no reason. I'm a pretty big fan!
