What is a menstrual cup?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

A menstrual cup is a small, foldable, reusable device made from silicone, rubber, or plastic that collects, rather than absorbs, the menstrual blood when inserted into the vagina. Since you can rinse it out and use it throughout your cycle and for years to come, a menstrual cup is an environmentally-friendly, healthy, and more comfortable alternative to pads and tampons.


Imasafe® Menstrual Cup is a 100% medical-grade liquid silicone menstrual cup, developed by Ami Polymer Pvt. Ltd. – a leading manufacturer and supplier of silicone-based products.

The reason for using silicone is due to its softness and biocompatibility. Biocompatible means that it is safe to put into the human body. To demonstrate the company’s commitment to quality, Imasafe® Menstrual cup is manufactured in a Cleanroom ISO Class VII facility and confirms all international standards and certifications.

You can wear Imasafe® menstrual cup for 8 consecutive hours before having to clean it or reinsert it.


Imasafe® Menstrual Cup comes in 3 unique sizes:

Small, which is recommended for first-time users with normal flow and who haven’t given birth. It can hold up to 15 ml of blood.

Medium, which is recommended for women who have normal flow and haven’t given birth. It can hold up to 25ml of blood.

Large, which is recommended for women who have a heavy flow and have given birth vaginally. It can hold up to 30 ml of blood.


To figure out which cup will be the best fit, consider the following:

  • Your age.
  • Your menstrual flow
  • Length of your cervix
  • If you have given birth
  • Capacity of the cup
