What is a Menstrual Cup?

A menstrual Cup is a type of female hygiene product which is usually made of medical grade silicone, shaped like a bell and is flexible. It is worn inside the vagina during menstruation to catch menstrual fluid (blood). It is a healthy, reusable and Eco-friendly substitute to the Sanitary Napkins and Tampons.
Unlike tampons and pads, the Cup collects menstrual fluid rather than absorbing it.

How will the Rustic Art Cup fit inside my vaginal cavity?

It is made in such a way that it just about fits inside your vaginal cavity and doesn’t move unless you take it out. It is just the perfect size to fit inside although women who are sexually active may find it easier to use it. Once it’s inside you won’t even feel it. Once inserted inside your vaginal cavity, it forms a suction/vacuum that helps it stay inside with no worries at all.

How do you insert it?

You may also wish to get in these positions in the bath or shower.
1) Squatting makes the vaginal canal shorter, so this is an excellent position for removal. Get right down towards the ground with your legs apart
2) Sitting on the toilet with your legs apart, and your back upwards and straight
3) You can also adopt a position suitable and comfortable for you.

    Yes, i used the day it arrived itself. This is my first experience with cup, so can’t give a comparison. The size was perfect, no leakage, and easy inserting and removal. Using from last 5 months. At times I forget that I am on my menstruation

  • Mugdha Pardeshi

    Using it for last 5 cycles… Periods doesn’t feel like period anymore.. Loving this lifestyle shift… No more leaking .. Itching…rashes and trickling feeling.. It’s so liberating.. Most importantly no avoiding white anytime of the month.

  • Tanya Kewalramani

    What I love about it is the capacity. Even on your first day you don’t have to take it out because it’s got so much capacity. It’s also very comfortable vs pad or vs tampon

  • Kanika mody

    5 out of 5

    Yes, it’s too too too gud, I almost forget I’m in my periods. It’s best of best n don’t think it needs to get better .

  • Hardi Shah

    3 out of 5

    Yes I did
    Though I experienced some leakage and I had to use panty liners from getting my clothes stained
    Besides that it’s a wonderful product
    I got a call from ur end to ask for reviews after my first cycle and explained my issue I tried inserting it as the way described by her in the second cycle but the problem still persisted
    Would love it if the Lil spotting out side the cup would stop
    Have recommended to a lot my cousins and friends !
    Hope it works for others if not me😊

  • Vasundhara

    While trying to be as minimalistic as possible in leaving an environment footprint, I came across this product through a friend’s
    recommendation. This is a big plus on being environment friendly. I am glad that I don’t cause more
    damage to the environment by throwing disposable plastic liner pads like Whisper or Stayfree and the likes.
    Although I don’t know how this silicone will be disposed – but at least it is not a per month disposal that
    we should worry about!

    If you are pro-environment, then the option is either a cloth pad or cup. The cup relieves a woman from
    having to wash the cloth pad…so in fact, I think this is very useful everywhere – I wish we could make this
    affordable to rural women and women in lower income group as well. Rs. 1000 while it is a cost that is recoverable
    if we don’t buy the regular “Ultra” pads, it may be a little too much for a maid or a woman working as a cleaner.

    Though the cup causes a little discomfort – esp towards the end of the cycle, continuing to use it.
    A liner is needed on the “heavy” days.

    The cloth pads supplied along with this cup could be made of softer cotton and the loops could be made tighter
    to let the cloth pads fit snugly.

    Overall a very useful product. Recommend every environment-conscious woman to consider this
    lifestyle shift. As women, moving to env friendly periods is the little bit we could do to Mother Earth.

  • Puja Bhatia

    Initially I was scared using the cup but somehow I gathered the courage to use it. After using I really found it good. It’s easy to use, medically graded and eco friendly. Now I lead a rash free and napkin free life.Thanks Ritika for introducing me to it.

  • Perpetual

    5 out of 5

    I was apprehensive using one as I thought, it would consider discomfort and pain. But, with regular use I found it extremely comfortable, easy to use and stress free. ​I can sleep at night in peace without thinking of staining my bed covers. I can travel to office without without thinking and looking back at my clothes checking for stains.
    ​It was a challenge initially to use it. But, after 3-4 months of regular use and insertion techniques, I mastered the art.​
    ​I would recommend it highly to all women.

  • Prakruthi Vinay

    very happy with the cup. Excellent buy for First time cup user
    The various details of cup size and cervix size was just complex. Rustic art was easier and thankfully a well made choice.
    Had very heavy flow. Hence experienced leakage on day one and two. But that was also getting used to wearing the cup correctly I suppose.
    Would recommend to others.
    Only thing I was unhappy was design of the cloth pads provided along. It was with removable inserts. Did not sit correctly in the strap provided on the pad. So have to order different one piece back up cloth pads for this cycle.

  • Reena Sharma

    Its comfortable but whenever I wore it I felt that my body temp rises, feel feverish n unwell. Could this be related to the cup. Otherwise its fantastic

    • Rustic Art

      Dear Reena,

      The uneasiness is not due to the cup. Also the cup cannot cause any allergy or infection as it is hypo-allergic in nature.

  • Pallavi

    It’s a good feeling to use it and convenient than pads.
    It needs a bit of practice to fit it with no leaks.
    Easy to carry, easy to clean, feels more hygienic.
    Pricing is a bit high otherwise a very good product.
    It’s not suitable for everyone so consult your gynecologist

    I love my menstrual cup! I was searching online for a vegan-friendly cup and happened to find your website. I couldn’t be happier with the customer service and quality of the products! So refreshing to find a company that cares equally about its customers and the planet as a whole. I will definitely recommend this to everyone I know!

  • Prerna Sinha

    3 out of 5

    The best feature is that it is reusable and environmental friendly. A plus over tampon along with the fact that it can be used during swimming. I still am getting used to inserting and feel a little discomfort in the process.

  • Meghana

    5 out of 5

    Kinda late in life for me personally, approaching 40 😛 but as they say, jab jaago tab savera.
    This one was on my mind for a while; and I’m glad to have made the switch.
    Pros:
    Body-friendly, non allergenic silicone material- confirms to body contours
    Easy to use, sterilize and store- you get a detailed instruction sheet that I swear you will need to refer to only before first use…it’s easy as pie (no pun intended)
    Can be kept in for 8-12 hours
    Lasts for life
    Nights are soooooo much better. You don’t feel a thing.

    Cons: Really, none. Unless you count the initial trepidation which is normal.
