nixit menstrual cup
nixit is a reusable menstrual cup that collects, rather than absorbs, your period. nixit sits above the vaginal canal - different to a tampon or traditional cup and holds itself in place naturally. No scary suction required.
- Double rim: extra protection to ensure your periood is leak-free and worry-free
- Unique circular design: our circlular shape easily conforms to your body. No confusing sizes. No awkward folds.
- Premium materials: ultra soft and flexible. Made in Canada with 100% medical grade BPA-free silicone.
- Stem-free: No stems or strings that irritate.

We know that practice makes perfect. Try out 'The nixit Plan' to get comfortable.
Try inserting nixit before your period, so that you can get some practice with insertion and removal. Remember the three steps - insert, tuck and check. Use nixit overnight or on lighter days. Use a pad or a sanitary towel as back up and to give you some confidence.
Try using nixit for your entire period. Always remember to insert, tuck and check. Still use back up pads or sanitary towels if you feel you need to. Empty nixit regularly so that you can get used to your flow and work out how long you can leave it in for at a time.
By now, you should have a good idea of your flow, so you can leave nixit in for longer stretches on lighter days. You’ll be so comfortable using nixit, that you may forget it’s there. Always remember to empty it at least every 12 hours!
