I started 3 months ago with Soft Cups to test them out before I bought a Mooncup this month. I never really paid attention to the smell with Soft Cups because you just throw them away. But with the Mooncup, I have started to notice that my fluids smell quite sour, almost like vinegar or something. I don't smell it except when I'm emptying the cup, and the cup doesn't retain the odor when I wash it, so that's not a concern. But I just want to make sure I'm not the only one who has sour-smelling fluids. Is this normal?

No clue about the smell. But Soft Cups do not have to be disposable. You can wash and re-use them as many times as you trust them.

Good to know, I was wondering about whether I could re-use the Soft Cups!

Re: Perhaps
Ok, that makes me feel a bit better. The last few days of my period are really light, and I seem to be getting more discharge than blood. And I didn't really notice the smell until I started seeing the discharge. So I don't think I'm going to worry about it unless I start seeing other symptoms.

It could just be the iron that you're smelling. Its metallic smell could definitely be interpreted as sour.

Yes, I agree. There's a certain sharpness to the smell that could be considered sour.

Good news... the smell completely disappeared on the day after my period! So I guess it must have been the iron.
