Can using a menstrual cup cause a prolapse?

We are aware of the recent articles concerning prolapse and menstrual cup use and can understand your concern. However, we have consulted a leading gynecologist on the issue and there’s no scientific or medical proof that supports the claim. This is also backed in a report by the Lancet Public Health journal that was published last year - which looked at 43 studies involving 3,300 women and girls living in rich and poor countries - the authors concluded menstrual cups were a safe option. This report is also mentioned in The BBC article.

If you make sure to follow our guidelines on how to insert and remove the cup (by releasing the suction seal) correctly, you should be fine. However, as always, if you have a prolapse then we recommend that you talk to a medical professional before using the menstrual cup.
