Menstrual cup

Last revised by Vikas Shah on 17 Feb 2023

The menstrual cup is a reusable silicone device designed to be an alternative to tampons and sanitary pads. Various different brands are available but they all have the same shape.

It can be observed on all forms of abdominal imaging and it is worth being familiar with its normal appearances.

Complications such as malpositioning have been reported1.
