Can virgins use menstrual cups?
Yes, if you are a virgin, you can use a menstrual cup.
In fact, you can start using a menstrual cup as soon as you get your period.
Although there is no age limit; it does however require that you are comfortable with your body and period.
Virgins and young girls’ vaginal muscles tend to be tighter, which can make insertion a bit more difficult.
Therefore, you might want to practice in the beginning. If it feels uncomfortable don’t force it, but take a break, relax and try again later.
The entrance of the vagina is more tense and smaller in width than the rest of the vagina so gradually adapting your body to accommodate the menstrual cup will make insertion easier.
Will my vagina stretch from using a menstrual cup?
No, the vagina won’t stretch from using a menstrual cup.
The vagina is pretty extraordinary like that as the muscle is able to stretch and go right back to its original shape – much like a rubber band.
This means that something as small as a menstrual cup or a tampon will not cause you to stretch out.
