LOONCUP is held in a lower position than a tampon and should not interfere with an internal birth control device. However, all women are different so be informed about your circumstances and consult with your physician if needed.
The components inside the LOONCUP are compactly sealed inside the silicone body to prevent any harm or discomfort to the body. It is currently designed to be non-rechargeable, however, we are brainstorming ways to increase battery longevity every single week and may introduce an upgraded version as a stretch goal. Once the battery dies, you can still use the LOONCUP as you wish, without data connection.
The embedded sensors can measure your menstrual fluids and color. This is done using 3 different sensors (triaxial, RGB and force). Volume is calculated using force and slope. Our RGB sensor detects color.
The stem of LOONCUP should not be cut since that is where the Bluetooth antenna is housed. However, the stem is 13mm long which is a bit shorter than other menstrual cups. We are actively working on improving the design of the LOONCUP and may be able to offer a short-stem or stem-less version as a stretch goal. Please stay tuned!
We are offering LOONCUP at a special Kickstarter price, however please be aware that we cannot be responsible for any additional taxes and charges due to the rate of customs and taxes on imported goods.
