The Haakaa Flow Cup is the perfect alternative for women looking for a safe, simple, economical and waste-free way to manage their periods. Made from 100% soft and flexible silicone, the Haakaa Flow Cup is free from BPA, chlorine and other harsh chemicals that are found in conventional pads and tampons.
The Flow Cup sits comfortably inside the vagina, creating a seal that collects your menstrual blood. Alternative methods like tampons can absorb additional vaginal fluids, which can disturb the delicate PH and bacterial balance in your vagina, leading to swelling, dryness and odour. Haakaa Flow Cups can be worn for up to 12 hours and can be reused over and over!
The Haakaa Valve Flow Cup can be emptied without having to be removed. Simply open the cap and squeeze the stem – it’s that simple!
- 100% medical grade silicone.
- Reusable, comfortable and safe.
- Two sizes to suit all women.
- Squeezable valve to empty your cup without removing.
- Easy to clean.
- BPA, PVC and phthalate-free.
- Includes hard carry case and cloth storage bag.
Please read the instructions below before using your Flow Cup.
- Always make sure you have clean hands before touching and inserting your Flow Cup.
- Sterilise your Flow Cup by boiling it in water for 2-3 minutes, making sure the valve cap is closed. Holding your Flow Cup with the stem pointing down, drain it completely of water and dry.
- Find a position that is comfortable for you. You can stand, sit, or put a foot up on the toilet - any position works, as long as you're relaxed.
- Place your finger on the top rim of your Flow Cup and press down into the centre, forming a triangle shape. This makes the top rim much smaller to insert.
- Hold the folded cup firmly in one hand and gently insert your Flow Cup into the vagina on a straight angle. Make sure the cup remains folded until it is completely inside your vagina and the stem is even with the vaginal opening.
- Let the cup pop open and check for folds or dents around the base. You'll know if your Flow Cup is inserted correctly if you can pull on the stem and feel resistance from the vacuum seal.
- The Haakaa Valve Flow Cup doesn't have to be removed each time you need to empty your cup. To empty, simply open the cap and squeeze the stem. Once the cup is empty, close the cap over the end of the stem.
How to Remove:
Make sure you have clean and dry hands. Remove the cap and squeeze the base of the Flow Cup to empty before removing. Once empty, pull gently on the stem until you reach the base of the cup. Pinch the base of the cup to remove the suction/seal and continue to pull down gently until the cup is removed. If your period has finished, sterilise your Flow Cup by boiling in water for 2-3 minutes, then place it back inside its case.

Our packing team takes great pride in sending out orders quickly and efficiently. Dispatch time frames vary depending on the shipping option you have chosen (please see above section for details). 'Dispatched' is basically another word for 'posted' or 'shipped' and means that your parcel has left our warehouse. We don't use the word 'posted' simply because we don't actually post parcels in a mailbox...instead we give them to the delivery carriers who come to us! You will receive an order update email from us on the date of dispatch, advising you that your order has been shipped by us today. This will include the name of the delivery carrier, the parcel tracking number and a link on how to track your order.
Delivery time (after dispatch) is the time it takes the delivery carrier to deliver your parcel once we have given it to them. This is also known as 'delivery transit time' and are the estimates provided by our delivery carriers. The vast majority of parcels are delivered within their stated time guides. Please note Nursing Angel is unable to accept responsibility or provide compensation for delivery carrier delays or errors.
We use Australia Post and couriers to deliver Australian orders. A street address is required for courier deliveries and we may request this if one has not been provided at checkout. For cities, towns and metro areas please use a street address. For regional and remote areas which are obviously not serviced by couriers, a post office box address is fine to use. Double check that the shipping address you have provided is correct (particularly the postcode, so easy to make a typo when ordering at midnight!) to minimise any potential delivery delays and to avoid parcels being returned to us as undeliverable.
We will email your parcel tracking number on the date of dispatch, together with a link on how to track your order. If your parcel has not arrived as expected, please refer to this email and link for full information. If you have deleted this email, please contact us to have it re-sent to you. The most common reason for parcels not arriving as expected is due to misplaced or lost delivery calling cards (the parcel is usually awaiting collection at the post office or with the courier depot waiting for your phone call to arrange re-delivery). If you are still unable to locate your parcel after following the instructions in the tracking link, please contact us for assistance at least one day after the full delivery time estimate has elapsed.
If Not Home For Delivery:
Parcels are either signed for, left for "safe drop" on the premises at the drivers discretion or a card is left by the driver with next step instructions.
Delivery Instructions & Authority To Leave:
If you have any delivery instructions or wish to give Authority To Leave your parcel if not home, please write clear details in the order notes area at checkout. Your instructions will then be passed onto the delivery carrier. Default instructions for Australia Post and Fastway Couriers are Authority to Leave.
