Did you know that women can have more than 480 menstruations during their life? That means they consume between 11.000 and 18.000 sanitary tampons or sanitary towels that can be amounted up to several thousand euros.
Mostly it is unknown that dioxin, formaldehyde and pesticides, flavours and colourants can be included in sanitary towles and sanitary tampons. Those substances can harm your health. Sanitary tampons and sanitary towles can furthermore effect the sensitive vaginal flora and lead to irritations, dryness and uncomfortable scents. Those old fashioned products can therefore not only harm your health, they are also very expensive and are effecting the environment in a negative way. Every year several million tons of sanitary tampons and sanitary towles end up in the oceans.

*read the package insert before usage.
Place the Meno-Cup in the lower part of your vaginal introitus – only as deep as you cannot see the shaft any longer, but you can still touch it easily. To simplify the insertion at the beginning, apply a small amount of water or water based lubricant on the Meno-Cup. Your Meno-Cup will softly unfold and should not be felt any longer. In case it unfolds earlier, place the Meno-Cup carefully a little higher until the shaft cannot be seen any longer. If the shaft is still too long, remove the Meno-Cup and cut the overlaying end using a scissor. Do not cut off the entire shaft.

Yes, and very well. The cup sits comfortably and securely at the cervix and does not come loose during sporting activities such as swimming, yoga or horse riding. The advantage over tampons is also that the annoying ribbon does not have to be hidden, as the cup is invisible when worn.
If the cup is cleaned properly and regularly, it will last up to 10 years. This not only protects the environment, but also your wallet.
The length of the handle is 2.21 cm for the size S and 2.43 cm for the size L. The length of the handle is too long / too short / too unpleasant. The lengths are based on average sizes and will in no case be too small. However, if the handle is a little too long and slightly perceptible, it can be shortened without any problems until it has the optimal length.
We recommend that you clean the cup thoroughly after and before each period and boil it to its best. This way you can be sure that the cup is optimally cleaned.
You can also use the Livella menstrual cup with a spiral or Gynefix. The menstrual cup is held in place with a slight negative pressure, but this negative pressure is not strong enough to release the spiral or copper chain from its seat. When the cup is removed, the negative pressure is loosened beforehand over the cup.
The dust-like film is caused by a too high lime content in the cooking water used. To prevent this, you can boil the cup with still mineral water.
Yes, medical silicone is suitable for microwaves. Simply fill a bowl suitable for microwaves with water and place the cup in the water. Place the bowl with the menstrual cup in the microwave and let it run at 800 watts for 5 minutes.
During the menstrual period and several times of emptying, the cup can be cleaned under running water. After the period is over, however, we recommend thorough cleaning by boiling.
The Livella menstrual cup was developed in cooperation with medical professionals. The innovative cup design therefore adapts optimally to the anatomical condition of the woman.

The Livella menstrual cup is a premium hygienic article that meets the highest standards and does not endanger your health.
We recommend that you empty the cup before going to sleep. This will increase your capacity.
Similar to the insertion of tampons, the hymen can also be injured or torn by a menstrual cup. It depends on how elastic the individual hymen is. In most cases, however, you do not notice this and it has no negative effects on your health. You still remain a virgin until your first time.
Yes, in this case the larger cup size L is particularly suitable. Due to its slightly larger diameter, it sits somewhat more securely on a weak pelvic floor. It is also possible to increase the negative pressure slightly. To do this, insert the cup a little deeper than normal. Make sure that the cup is completely open. Then pull back the cup (without releasing the vacuum) a little.
