Designed & Made in the UK

Our reusable period pads and bags have been made in the UK at our factory in Glasgow since 2016, and we're very excited to share that all our period pants made after Jan 2023 proudly bear the "MADE in UK" label too. UK production is something we are really passionate about; it means you can be safe in the knowledge that your reusable period pants are not only planet friendly but they are people friendly too. Ethical manufacturing is core to what we do here at NORA and having our own production facility gives us 100% control, and total peace of mind.



Wash your hands. Fold the NORA Cup in half so that it looks like a ‘C’ and hold it in one hand.*

Gently put the cup into your vagina with the stem pointing downwards until the rim sits just below your cervix.

Rotate a few times then release to create an airtight seal.

To remove, lightly pinch the bottom of the cup (not the stem) until the airtight seal is broken, and then remove.

Pop the blood down the toilet. Rinse and reuse.

*If the C shape doesn’t work for you then you might find you’re more suited to the Triangle or Punch Down shape

Rinse your period cup thoroughly with clean water. 

Clean your period cup before each insertion and at the end of your period with gentle soap or intimate wash. Never use petroleum products (vaseline), essential oils, corrosive cleaners, perfumed soaps or dish soap to clean your period cup. 

Disinfect your period cup at the end of each cycle by simply plunging it into a pot of boiling water for 7 minutes. Dry your period cup in open air to prevent odours.

After disenfection store in your carry bag until your next cycle.

There is no difference between our menstrual cup and others on the market.
