Will the Mooncup break my hymen?

The hymen is a thin membrane which in some cases can partially cover the opening to the vagina.

If you have strong personal or cultural feelings about the hymen, we would not advise that you use any internal sanitary protection as, although you can use a menstrual cup with a hymen, inserting it may stretch or tear it.

If you have any questions, or want to talk about this more, please email Mooncup Advice.
