Foreign sex workers in Denmark are triply marginalised - due to their profession, legal status, as well as in matters
related to menstruation. This pilot project aimed to assess the acceptability of the menstrual cup (MC) as well as
education in menstrual health management (MHM) amongst 26 women from this group using the 'Nest
International’' centre, who volunteered to be part of the project. They were provided with MCs and education. Given
their legal status, consistent follow-up and advice proved difficult to undertake, with only 11 agreeing to a follow up
interview. Most of those interviewed reported using both MCs and alternative MHM products. Lessons learned
concern both the challenges in consistently supporting this mobile group, and the challenges in interviewing them.
