Can I use the menstrual cup for sports?

Many of you wonder if it will be comfortable to use a menstrual cup for sports . The first time I considered going swimming with the cup on, I thought “if I move, the cup moves and goodbye, invention!” Today I can assure you that it is quite the opposite, the menstrual cup is designed to create a vacuum inside your vagina and remain motionless no matter what you do, even handstands!

Furthermore, the more sports you do, the better for your pelvic floor and the support it provides for your menstrual cup. Keep reading until the end because we're going to get in tune!

Is it comfortable to use the menstrual cup for sports?

It's the first thing you'll think about when you try the menstrual cup for the first time . You will instantly understand how it works and how, whatever movement you make, you stop noticing that you have something inside you.

Keep in mind that a quality menstrual cup , like the GlupCup , is made from 100% medical silicone. This means that it respects your body and does not affect your vaginal flora, so it is neither dry nor irritating . While you do sports, you also move your vaginal muscles and rubbing with a tampon for hours can damage your vaginal walls.

You won't notice anything outside your vagina either, no thread will bother you and the rubbing of the pad will no longer be a problem for your groin. The menstrual cup will fit completely inside you, so you can use the underwear that is most comfortable for you without fear of anything moving.

And no, it doesn't move no matter how fast you go. It won't come off if you do cartwheels or spend time in a horizontal position. The menstrual cup creates a vacuum inside you and will remain motionless for hours without leaking . You can wear your menstrual cup for up to 12 hours!

What types of sports can I do with the menstrual cup in?

All! With the menstrual cup there are no excuses , any sport will be easy and comfortable to practice with it on. In fact, many of our users are athletes and the change they have felt has been incredible. Here we leave you the testimony of one of them. Celia suffered irritation in her groin when she did marathons for hours, since she wore tampons and pads at the same time. With the menstrual cup she has been able to run without worrying about what was happening in her underwear.

"Yesterday I went running with the cup on for the first time and it was wonderful. I don't feel like I'm wearing anything, it doesn't move, and I avoid those chafing and stinging many times, when I have to put on a panty liner or a pad, especially on hot days , when I'm going to run a long run and I'm afraid my tampon will fill up." - Fragment of Celia N.'s testimony about GlupCup!

The sports with which you will notice greater well-being are those that require greater movements such as running, tennis, cycling, basketball... For water sports we have another post prepared since many of you are intrigued by the fact of swimming or diving with the menstrual cup on .

    How does it affect my pelvic floor strength?

    Here comes the most important part. When choosing the size of your menstrual cup, we always highlight practicing sports since this is decisive in knowing the strength of your pelvic floor. The more sports you practice, the more strength you will have and the less size you will need. That is why women over 30 who have not had a vaginal birth can use a small size for more years than another who does not practice sports.

    But what sports will help you maintain good vaginal tone? Without a doubt , yoga and Pilates are the sports that will tone your pelvic floor the most. Not only will they serve to hold your menstrual cup, they are also great for preparing for future births or preventing urine leaks. You have already seen that doing sports with a menstrual cup is possible!
