HIVETTE MENSTRUAL CUP
The Hivette is a menstrual cup. Menstrual cup is a reusable device for menstrual fluid collection. The Hivette is the first Malaysian menstrual cup and was introduced at the beginning of 2019. It is an environmentally-friendly alternative to pads and tampons as it collect the menstrual fluid instead of absorbing it like tampons and pads did. This will eventually reduce the risk of getting Toxic Shock Syndrome. (Which is great, right?)
Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) is very common in woman with absorbent pads/tampons due to overgrowth of bacteria. Want to know more about TSS? We got you! More about TSS in WebMD
With proper care, the cups are reusable for up to 10 years, however, we recommend that you replace it if the material starts getting sticky, cracking or any visible tears spotted. We recommend emptying your cup every 4 to 6 hours. Our menstrual cup is available in two colors (black and yellow) and sizes (25ml and 35ml).
The Hivette is made of medical-grade silicone. For your information, medical-grade silicon is a unique material which is skin-contact safe and commonly used in industrial applications.
