We get it – being sexy and having sex may be the last thing on your mind when you’re on your period. But did you know that there are some benefits to period sex?

For example, orgasms are cited as a natural pain-reliever to the dreaded menstrual cramps. Not only do they release oxytocin and endorphins but it also causes contractions in the muscles of the uterus, which may lead to efficient release of the uterine lining and less cramping.

Also while one’s estrogen and testosterone levels will be at their lowest in the initial days of the menstrual cycle, after Day 3 they start to rise again. Your sensitivity and responsiveness to touch and pleasure also increases during this time.

With that in mind, we pleased to introduce the next generation of innovation from Intimina, the Swedish brand renowned for merging expert medical knowledge from gynecological and pelvic health specialists, with beautiful design and comfort.

Made to protect and worn to be free, Intimina listened to their customers’s feedback to design a new, upgraded version of the original mess-free menstrual cup – the ZIGGY CUP 2.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Which size cup should I choose?

A: Size is mainly determined by anatomy, childbearing history, and pelvic floor strength. Since a woman’s body undergoes many changes throughout her lifetime, each cup is designed for maximum comfort and should not be felt when worn. If you feel any discomfort, you may need to change your size or cup style.

The Ziggy Cup 2 is available in two different sizes. Cup A is recommended for those with a low cervix while cup B is suitable for those with a high cervix.

Q: It’s my first time wearing a menstrual cup, are there any tips to make it easier?

A: Each body is made differently so there might be a learning curve when it comes to your first time using a cup. Don’t be discouraged as it may take some tries to get used to inserting the cup properly. We recommend using a personal moisturizer or lubricant to ease the cup insertion, especially during certain stages of the menstrual cycle where dryness may occur. Keep your nails trimmed and short and you may want to consider wearing a pantyliner just in case for your first few cycles!

Q: How often should I empty my cup?

A: You can wear your cup for up to 8 hours, and we recommend that you empty your cup 3-4 times per 24 hour period. Generally speaking, the lighter your flow, the less frequent the changes. With time and practice you will be able to gauge how often you personally need to empty your cup.

Q: What if I can’t wash my cup while I’m out?

A: Always remember to wash your hands before handling your cup – consider carrying antibacterial hand wipes or hand sanitizer in your bag. Intimina’s cups are designed to not encourage bacterial growth, so you can skip a rinse once in a while. If you don’t have access to a sink, you may use a piece of toilet paper to wipe the cup and re-insert it. Another option is to take a bottle of water with you into the bathroom stall and rinse the cup over the toilet.

Q: Can the cup get stuck or get lost inside me?

A: Nope! The vagina ends at the cervix, so you can’t lose the cup in your body.

Q: Will the cup collapse inside me?

A: No, they are designed to always stay rigid when worn. They will only collapse when you use your hands to collapse it.

Q: Can I wear my cup while exercising?

A: Yes, if the cup is inserted properly, then you can rest assured that it will protect you when you exercise.

Q: Can the cup be used as a contraceptive?

A: No, although the Ziggy Cup can be worn during sexual intercourse, it is not a contraceptive and will not protect you from STDs or pregnancy. Please use your regular contraceptive and/or condoms during sex.

Q: How often do I have to replace the Ziggy Cup 2?

A: When treated with care, the Ziggy Cup 2 can be used for up to 2 years.
