Description Videos and User Reviews
Casco Bay menstrual cup, aka “Freedom Cup”, “Green Cup of Maine”, “Life Cup”, “Lincup”, “V-Cups” and more, is marketed as an environmentally friendly, reusable cup, just like most every other non-disposable menstrual cup out there. However, the Casco cup is made in the USA in an ISO-certified factory. That means it meets standardized requirements when it comes to the production of this class of product, unlike menstrual cups that are made in China where much of the production is unregulated. This cup isn’t green in color, in fact, it’s only available in clear. That’s because it’s dye-free in an effort to keep this cup as pure as possible.
This cup is made from Class VI, medical/healthcare-grade silicone. The material is FDA-approved. It doesn’t have latex, BPAs, dyes or rubber. This cup has a rounded stem for comfort. No more getting poked by a jagged menstrual cup stem!
How to use the Casco Cup
Casco Cup insertion. To insert the Casco Cup, follow the usual instructions for using menstrual cups, as follows: Fold your cup to make it smaller for insertion. You can sit, stand, squat or place your leg on the seat of the toilet or other raised surface. Try to relax and move aside your labia with your free hand. Point the cup toward your backbone as you place it into the vagina. Once it’s in place, release your hold on the cup, and it will unfold inside. Many women like to give their menstrual cup a twist to make sure it’s formed a leak-proof seal.
Casco Cup removal. Wash your hands before removing your Casco Cup. Again, taking some deep breaths and relaxing will help. Find the base of the cup using your fingers. Don’t pull out on the stem until you have grasped the base of the cup and squeezed it to release it’s suctioned grip. Then slide the cup out and empty it into the toilet.
Casco Cup care. During your period, you should care for your Casco Cup by washing it with mild soap and cold water. Store it in a cotton bag.
