The cup collects the blood inside the vagina (unlike tampon which absorbs it) and after 4 to 12 hours it has to be removed (depends on the flow intensity) and it is emptied into the toilet. It is reinserted after rinsing with water. Contrary to the opinion of women who have never tried the cup before, the emptying is quick and clean. The menstrual cup is able to collect 2-3 times more menstrual blood than tampon is able to absorb.
