Should my Mooncup smell?
Your Mooncup shouldn’t normally have a strong odour. The most common reasons for the Mooncup developing an odour are:
- leaving the Mooncup in a lot longer than the advised 4 to 8 hours; or
- boiling the Mooncup in a saucepan that may have had traces of food left on the surface.
If this is not the case, you may have a non-serious vaginal infection that should be checked out by your doctor or nurse.
Removing odour from your Mooncup
To remove the odour:
- Soak your Mooncup in a small container of sterilising solution such as that used for sterilising baby bottle teats diluted to the manufacturer’s guidelines for the minimum recommended time (usually 15 minutes).
- Rinse thoroughly with clean water.
If you’re still having problems, please contact Mooncup Advice.
