151 out of 172 people would recommend this product23/11/2020, By JaxI used this product for the first time with my last cycle. The rim is a bit hard and difficult to use initially but once you get used to it, it is a great product that is saving the environment and saving me money every month. I wish more people would use them.20/11/2020, By MelHave been using this for a few months now, and after a bit of getting used to, it has really shown it's value!12/11/2020, By ClairThis or tampons?09/11/2020, By SimoneThis has been one of my best ever purchases! Easy to use, comfortable and affordable.
Wonderful to not be adding to the global waste issue as well.31/10/2020, By Verowas not sure if it would work well, but i am surprised how easy it works.27/10/2020, By AliyahGreat Product25/10/2020, By CarlaBrilliant25/10/2020, By MeganSuch an amazing alternative to tampons and a good local buy.23/10/2020, By LindseyI bought this to replace my 3 years + old mooncup that has some wear and tear on the stem. I would say this on is on par. On day 1+2 my heavy days I have to tip it out every 4-5 hours which is the same as my mooncup. The two suction holes are a bit large and they can cause leaks so make sure you tip it out in the shower or try to time it correctly so that it doesn't reach that point. First 2 evenings I can't use it at night which sucks because my flow is too heavy those days. The silicone is softer than the mooncup which is nice so I don't get a fright when it pops open. I was a bit nervous about the flat tab but I got the hang of it and I can't feel it, it's so soft. It would be nice if the base had grooves on it to improve th grip. Good product and thank you FTN.20/10/2020, By AnikaNice way to save money and help the environment19/10/2020, By SaskiaHappy with this product. Super comfortable and provides good sizing guidelines to select the correct size.16/10/2020, By TylerThis is my second cup, but first time using the FTN brand.
It is very supple and comfortable to wear.
I have not had a problem with leaking as much as I did with my previous cup from another brand.14/10/2020, By MikaylaI was nervous to try this cup, as I am not sexually active and I was worried that I wouldn't be able to insert it without pain. I got it in very comfortably on my first attempt after watching a video on how to do it, and I cant even feel that it is in. So comfortable and so much better than tampons. Removing it the first time was a little tricky, but I used my stomach muscles (again, go watch a youtube video) and it removed easily.14/09/2020, By TrishI'm a first time user and it took a few times to get used to using the cup. I am so happy with this product, goodbye tampons!11/09/2020, By LillieI have no clue why i waited so long to move to a cup, best thing ever !!!10/09/2020, By BronI can't believe it took me so long to move away from tampons. It took me a while to get the hang of it, but now I find it is so much more convenient, more comfortable, and more hygienic than tampons. I wish more people knew how remarkable it is!09/09/2020, By ClaudineA woman's best friend. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Haven't needed to buy single use sanitary equipment for over a year now.29/08/2020, By Brendagreat29/08/2020, By Brendagreat20/08/2020, By TerGood20/08/2020, By CaraSuper comfortable04/08/2020, By LandiFirst time user and struggled a bit in the beginning on how to get it in. Recommend watching a few videos for assistance. But definitely loving it and won't be going back to buying normal tampons. Can't believe it took me this long to find it!13/07/2020, By AimeeThe amount of waste I have reduced and money I have saved by buying this menstrual cup - so awesome! You'll most probably have to be used to tampons before switching over to a menstrual cup, tricky at first but you'll soon get the hang of it. Goodbye, pads and tampons!13/07/2020, By Lee-AnnThis thing is awesome!! No more pads for me thank you. It takes some getting used to, and I would recommend watching some YouTube videos on how they work. Used it for an entire period week and absolutely love it!!09/07/2020, By CatherineI cannot believe I am so late to the magnificent world of the menstrual cup! I shan't be purchasing a tampon again! First application was a little daunting, but once you get the knack of it - you'll honestly never go back. I have a pretty heavy flow and this was the first time in years that I felt as if my period wasn't messy. I am forever changed, and have been preaching the good news of the menstrual cup to all. Even bought my friend one as a gift!23/06/2020, By AnnelieI've been using mine for quite a while now. It's great! It is a bit small on my heaviest day, but it pays for itself in over four cycles!21/06/2020, By MimiStill a hit and miss for me but I find that being calm really help with inserting it right07/06/2020, By ClarissaI struggled with leakage at the beginning, but after a few days of practice, I got more experienced and no more leakage. The Goddess cup is absolutely comfortable. I would never turn back to normal pads and tampons.02/06/2020, By StephI can't do any form of exercise when wearing this, sometimes even walking hurts. The tab scrapes against the opening of vagina and really hurts. I also find insertion to be quite hit and miss, it feels like I'm not inserting it deep enough because of how much the tab sticks out, however I can't insert it any deeper! Perhaps another brand would be better for me.28/05/2020, By MonikaMy first menstrual cup so it took some time to get used to. After two cycles I am in love.28/05/2020, By KellyAs a first time goddess menstrual cup() user. I got it as a gift after doing extensive research on it. Insertion was easy. Cant feel a thing and look forward to future cycles22/05/2020, By First bornFits in firmly15/05/2020, By CvdMThis is my first menstrual cup, so I don't really have anything to compare it to. It was bigger than expected, and it's a bit of a challenge getting it in and taking it out. I guess it will take some getting use to, but I'm committed to trying because of the benefits to the environment.09/05/2020, By HazelVery decent menstrual cup07/05/2020, By Kayla JaneThis is my first time using a cup. It’s quite difficult to remove and takes a bit of time getting it in. I’m glad I tried it while at home because removing it is incredibly messy and if I was in a public bathroom without a basin in the stall it would’ve looked like I killed someone. I like that it’s ecofriendly but I don’t find it easy to use.04/05/2020, By LizlThis is a great product, even though it does take some getting used this. The tab is smaller than another brand I have tried which makes it a bit more difficult to remove. Overall, much cheaper and more eco-friendly than pads.04/05/2020, By CaseyGreat once you have the hang of it29/04/2020, By HappyWhat a device29/04/2020, By HappyNice material27/04/2020, By CandyProfessional06/04/2020, By BThe cup is initally quite an adjustment, and more messy if your flow is heavy. But the amount of money saved on tampons and never thinking if they will run out again is worth it. Also being able to just go to the loo normally is great.05/02/2020, By ShamaniFits like a tampon, you can't feel it. Removing it was a challenge at first i.e Trying to grab the tab at the end and pull while slippery. If you push like you do when making a poo (sorry) then the cup moves down and you can grip the botton of the cup with both fingers. I may need to try a smaller size. But altogether happy and won't go back to tampons or pads.03/02/2020, By SunaeAbsolutely love it. Gorgeous eco packaging. Had to practice a bit but in the end I highly recommend this cup to all girls24/01/2020, By BronAfter years of researching and weighing up the data I bought a Goddess Cup (Medium). I LOVE the FTN packaging - innovative, easy to read (on the inside), and simple instructions and diagrams. The cloth bag is also divine!
I think I should have got a smaller one, but after practicing for a few days I am getting it right :-)
I highly recommend this product for busy ladies who run/ workout, need to be in the car, at work, etc. Not having to change it every few hours like a tampon is a game changer for me.13/12/2019, By VeneanMy first attempt with this was quite tricky, which I was expecting but definitely something I am totally satisfied with in terms of the purchase. I love how comfortable it is. No smells no leaks and I only need to change after 10hrs which is great!30/10/2019, By RebeccaThis is the third cup I tried and the one that I am finally satisfied with (thank goodness, because cups aren’t cheap). I started with a different brand’s cup, which was too soft, then moved to the FTN small cup and eventually arrived at this FTN medium one. I like the firmness of the FTN cups compared to my first cup. Just a warning that finding the right cup can be quite a journey, even having done thorough research beforehand! It took almost a year of experimentation for me.
I assumed I would need a small cup, as I’m under 30 and haven’t had kids and am a small-size human, but ended up needing a medium (which only lasts me 6 hours even then). I pair my cup with a Moontime panty liner on heavy days, because I do tend to get caught with a bit of leakage around the 6 hour mark.
TLDR: finding the right cup is a completely individual experience and there is no one size fits all by any account. It can be tricky and frustrating as one tries to figure it all out, however, it is worth the effort once you get there. My periods are now waste-free AND I also gained massive empowerment in relation to my body and greater understanding of the beauty and intricacy of my menstrual cycle. The journey might not be easy, but it’s worth it.28/10/2019, By KatI want to love it. I previously had a Mooncup I bought overseas, so I was excited to try a local product. I found it stiff, inflexible, and impossible to insert correctly despite regular attempts, and despite having plenty of experience of a cup. Sadly I have never been able to use this properly.20/10/2019, By CindyOne of my favourite purchases so far! So great! So easy! So safe to use! LOVE this!16/10/2019, By SarahI've been using this cup for a while now and it's the best zero waste purchase I have made. You don't feel it inside you. It's so comfortable.28/09/2019, By RouxIt has taken me from the age of 20 to the age of 23 to finally find a menstrual cup that I am 100% happy with. Thank you FTN!17/09/2019, By BrittI used the original FTN cup but the colour was very susceptible to staining and after 3 years I decided to replace for the new clear version. The plastic is a little harder than the previous so there was discomfort on the first use but second use after boiling to clean it was a little softer and I have now gotten use to it. Colour is a lot better and easier to clean.16/09/2019, By HeatherAbsolutely amazing! This is my first experience with a menstrual cup and it has been so comfortable. It's amazing to not have to carry a million tampons with me wherever I go, and the cup is a lot more comfortable than tampons. Yay all around!10/09/2019, By DeeI found with this particular one that the rim was too stiff/hard which made it really difficult and uncomfortable to take out. However, my previous cup was soft and worked a charm. I do recommend the cup over tampons or pads.04/09/2019, By MoniqueGive menstrual cups a fighting chance, you won't regret it.26/08/2019, By Masego WilliamsI love the cup , once inserted it formed one with my body . I was scared as it appeared big but it was a perfect fit and works well for me ! I love it .25/08/2019, By DianaI bought this for my daughter about 6 years ago. She loved it from the word go. Her puppy managed to get hold of it and destroyed it sadly and so I have ordered another for her. It is a different make but looks the same. She is thrilled to get it.23/08/2019, By ClaireThis is one of the most comfortable decision i have ever made. As someone who cares about the environment and is fully aware of the expensive costs of sanitary pads, this is the best thing i have done for myself. I feel comfortable with any activity that i do on the daily. 10/1022/08/2019, By CheleneI read a lot of these reviews before deciding to finally buy this cup. I was nervous about the size because I have quite a petite frame and was worried about leakage and the stiffness of the material. To my surprise it fit perfectly with no leakage whatsoever and is SO comfortable. It takes a while to get the hang of but it is 100% worth trying! If you're struggling with yours, there are some great Youtube videos explaining how to put it in and remove it easily.12/08/2019, By IndiraVery Nice product and easy to use.12/08/2019, By RoxanneWill NEVER look back. So comfortable and convenient!!!08/08/2019, By CJI bought this and it sat on my shelf for 6 months as I was too scared to try it. I don’t want to go back now! I wish I hadn’t waited so long. It takes some time to get used to putting it in/taking it out (maybe 3 cycles) but it is so worth it. With my flow I can leave it the entire day without worry, and wear period panties at night for a break. I often work outdoors for long hours so I look forward to being worry free with my cup. The only downside is that you can’t really empty it and clean it easily in a public bathroom02/08/2019, By StormI’ve enjoyed using this product and will definitely stick to it. However, it can sometimes feel uncomfortable and irritable.01/08/2019, By SanetI agree that the instructions could be clearer. But there are some useful YouTube videos on how to get cups out easily. Once you've mastered that, it's absolutely amazing. Convenient, economical, eco-friendly.19/07/2019, By AnonymousWish I found this product way earlier16/07/2019, By ClaudineWould rate this 10/10 if I had the option. I will not be going back to tampons or pads ever again. Really love this product and definitely recommend it.27/06/2019, By MalissaI've been using this cup for about six months now. If I would've reviewed it in the first month I probably would've given it 2/5.
I initially thought it hurts and leaks. Initially, I also took forever to put it in and take it out. until I mastered it. Now I can't live without it and I've saved so much money.
Remember to always sterilise the cup before use and maybe by boiling it for a while the first time will make it not so stiff or hard to use.
02/06/2019, By patriciaI´m happyusing it. it is confortable but it leaks sometimes and as other people alrready sais it is paintfull to take it out. I will give it a chance for a few months and change for a softer one if I need to26/04/2019, By LizanneLove this! Takes getting used to, but it's very effective and feels cleaner than tampons. I don't feel it at all, no leaks, and very easy to clean. I'm very pleased with it, would definitely recommend.23/04/2019, By SharleneIt didn't work for me, think I should've went with the smaller cup. Felt very uncomfortable & stiff.23/04/2019, By CarlaTook a bit of getting used to, but is a great product.09/04/2019, By ManinieI'm on the fence with this one. Some months is works, other months it leaks...maybe that has more to do with my body than it?21/03/2019, By MelodyI have used it for a few months now. I find it very comfortable. Only problem is I have trouble with leaking especially on the heavy days as sometimes I dont know how far to insert it. It takes practice.28/01/2019, By LaI would definitely recommend getting a menstrual cup, but this brand really hurt me when I took the cup out. I persevered for two periods, but eventually changed brands (to a softer material). I have now been using the cup for almost a year and it has changed my life!18/01/2019, By CindyGreat product! Takes a bit getting used you, but once you get the hang of it, it's amazing! Makes me proud of doing my part to save waste.17/01/2019, By NatalieI've been thinking about getting a menstrual cup for ages but there were just so many question marks regarding fit. I was worried because I didn't want to waste money on buying one that wouldn't fit my body. When I made the leap and ordered the Goddess Cup, I could have slapped myself for not getting one a lot sooner. The cup fit perfectly, straightaway. I've been inserting and removing the cup without any discomfort at all, it feels secure and doesn't leak at all.27/12/2018, By primates_r_us(I must add to my previous review - I am a cup user, and would consider buying this once you revise your marketing and provide proper well-researched advice! And I hope other manufacturers do the same)27/12/2018, By primates_r_us*NOT TRIED PRODUCT BUT MISLEADING / DANGEROUS INFO IN DESCRIPTION* I'm a huge fan of this website and really appreciate the eco-friendly products you supply and the role you are playing in encouraging social responsibility in consumers. BUT the risks of Menstrual cups and TOXIC SHOCK SYNDROME have not been studied extensively, and in fact, the only available evidence suggests they carry an EQUAL OR GREATER risk than tampons, currently, due to poor hygiene instructions provided by manufacturers - please take responsibility for your customers' health as well as the environment - see this article, and the associated research articles for further information on how to use menstrual cups safely - they are still a great product but proper care should be taken! https://sciblogs.co.nz/infectious-thoughts/2018/04/29/menstrual-cups-lets-investigate/27/12/2018, By primates_r_us*NOT TRIED PRODUCT BUT MISLEADING / DANGEROUS INFO IN DESCRIPTION* I'm a huge fan of this website and really appreciate the eco-friendly products you supply and the role you are playing in encouraging social responsibility in consumers.

I read a lot of different reviews and knew leaking is a common problem, so I wasn't too surprised when it happened. However, I tried everything mentioned to stop the leaking, to no avail. I now think this might not be the right cup shape/size for me, so will try another type to see if it makes a difference. Definitely not ready to give up yet!12/12/2018, By GillianSuper impressed with this new mould, I prefer it being see-through and I prefer the medium to a large, a lot more comfortable. Sadly still need to wear a pad over the heavy days but will never turn back to the old ways. This is a wonderful eco-friendly alternative to the cotton pads and tampons.08/12/2018, By MeAfter doing a lot of research on this I was hoping this would be a much greener alternative to my monthly sanitary use. But I just couldn't get a liking in it and decided to rather stop using it after quite a few months. This is a great concept and product, but definitely a case of personal preferences.04/12/2018, By GreengirlTakes a little getting used to, but works perfectly. No leaking. Will definitely not look back, love going waste free and healthier for my body.01/12/2018, By SamI really want to get this right but after almost a year of trying I just don't know what to do. It leaks every time because I can't get it to open up once inserted and there's no forum or support to assist with questions that obviously need to be quite graphic. Before I buy the smaller one I'd love talk to someone about what option might work for me or if this brand is even right for me. If I didn't work from home I probably would have thrown this away months ago, it can be quite painful and I've wasted hours trying to get it to work27/11/2018, By NalediHow to use it is still a question mark to me. The description and photos are not clear. Bought it as a gift for someone who can’t afford pads. We need a life demo26/11/2018, By CamillaWaste of money! It leaks within 5 minutes of putting it in, like a slow drip that accumulated over time. I was previously using another brand which was mistakenly thrown away by my domestic worker. So disappointed20/11/2018, By KagiSome things are not for everyone. I tried the cup during my last cycle and had a hard time. It leaked, was uncomfortable even after I trimmed the stem and caused me a lot of discomfort when I had to take it out. I will try again and see if I come right next cycle. I18/11/2018, By MichelleThis was my first menstrual cup ever and I felt very intimidated at first to make the switch to a cup. I wish these cups could be made available to all women across the world, as it is a solution for the environment, as well as basic feminine hygiene. The rubber "handle" was a bit long for comfort, but after cutting it shorter, the cup was really comfortable. (Or as comfortable as menstruating can be)05/11/2018, By LeboHi, I am happy with the new clear and smooth material that is easy to clean and does not hide any bio-material. Unfortunately the cup gets stuck and it is a painful exercise to get it out every time. I abandoned the use on the first day as I could not stand the pain. The rim is too hard to fold into a small size and also vacuum sealed inside making it near impossible to take out.29/10/2018, By JulieI love the concept of the menstrual cup - I love the comfort, not having to change it so often and it is really easy to insert. However, I am really struggling with the removal - is this normal? I don't want to give up just yet but I'm wondering whether I should use a small or whether to change brands?29/10/2018, By simmieBEST!! its really easy to use and so comfortable. I will never go back tonusing tampons!25/10/2018, By MelSave the environment17/10/2018, By ClareTrying in every way to go zero waste, a menstrual cup was one of the things I was most reluctant to change to. A 15 year of habit of using tampons and an ingrained mentality is tough to break and I was satisfied with using Natracare tampons. The price increase of those tampons a few months actually forced me to buy this cup and thus far I am totally impressed! A little daunting initially, but so comfy and stress free! Literally only one cycle in but I am so thrilled I made the change. I am incredibly happy with this product, and the medium size is perfect - no leaks whatsoever.16/10/2018, By ZangelGreat concept. But what a struggle to not get it to leak! Wished i had rather bought another brand, as this is not doing what its supposed to do. Very disappointed.10/10/2018, By CourtneyFirst few times I used this product I was a little unsure, but it has honestly become my best friend. Saving money and creating much less waste.10/10/2018, By wilmaI wish I'd read some of the reviews before buying!
I've experienced the same - leaking...so I've had to use pantiliners.
I also feel like some of the other reviewers that it defeats the purpose of trying to cut down on sanitary products ending up in landfills.
In addition, the first couple of times taking it out was quite painful as there were no instructions re that. I can't see how I could do this in public toilets as it's quite messy.04/10/2018, By LandiThis is the first menstrual cup that I've tried and it hasn't been great. It is constantly leaking even when it is not nearly full, which kind of defies the point. After having read some of the other reviews, I think I will try another brand before giving up on the menstrual cup though.01/10/2018, By FtoNThis cup is great! Now that I have switched over to this product, I never will purchase another tampon again!30/09/2018, By JaneDisappointed, having previously used a mooncup for 10 yrs, I was keen to try a local brand but unfortunately it doesn’t work for me. Will be going back to the mooncup26/09/2018, By NatashaIt's my first time trying a menstrual cup and I LOVE it! It's so convenient; don't have to change it every 3/4 hours, no leakages and you don't even feel it is there! Funny story though, first time I pulled it out it fell in the toilet and I had to sterilize it all over again haha so just be careful when taking it out.08/09/2018, By LaurenI’ve been using a menstrual cup for more than 5 years but am disappointed by this one. It always leaks even when it’s nowhere near full and I have to wear backup protection which defeats the point. And I am definitely using it properly I never had this issue with my old one of another brand. Perhaps the issue is that I am now using it after having two children. In which case perhaps you should consider adding in a wider diameter option.22/08/2018, By AshAmazing simple technology that will change your life and how you feel about that time of the month! Save a fortune in the long run and save the planet at the same time!14/08/2018, By AlisjiaSo far so good, had to watch a few videos to get a hang of it but I am so glad I have bought this. Dont have to worry for the whole day and then again no worries at night! Have told everyone about it and recommended to anyone I meet06/08/2018, By EthneSlides in, easy to push out, a more intimate connection to my natural rhythm - very excited about this lifestyle change!26/07/2018, By LilyDay 1 and I'm already a convert of the menstrual cup. It took me several months, a bunch of YouTube videos, and finally running out of my tampon stock to commit to buying the cup but I'm so glad I did. I tried it for the first time today and had minimal trouble inserting it (second try) and taking it out (first try).
For the first time in decades, I went about my day without worrying if I was leaking or if I had remembered to put an extra tampon in my handbag.
The silicon material is great and it popped open the moment I inserted it. It is also soft and flexible enough to bend it into a comfortable shape for insertion. You can't be squeamish because you're going to be getting up close and personal with yourself, but think about the eco-friendly impact you're making!23/07/2018, By EsmeThis product definitely takes some time getting used to and educating yourself on YouTube is a must. I wouldn't say that it is hassle-free and it is definitely not more discreet than tampons, keeping in mind that you have to sterilise (e.g. boil) it before and after each cycle and that cleaning it after each removal is a bit of a schlep (e.g. rinsing if you have immediate access to a sink or wiping it off with wipes if you don't). I agree with the other reviewers in that the cup starts staining after one or two uses. I use a bio-bleach from FtN (chlorine-free) to clean mine at the end of each cycle, which works really well, but again, it is not very discreet. I was also disappointed that the stem broke off before the product was a year old. The rim is quite tough, making removal a bit uncomfortable, but it is nothing you can't get used to. As for insertion, I would recommend using a lubricant, e.g. coconut oil, as this makes it MUCH easier (but again, not hassle-free...). All that being said, the pros of decreasing waste and not using fibrous tampons outweigh the cons. It is also surprisingly comfortable once you get the hang of it. But I still think my next buy will be another brand.05/07/2018, By TlangiWas nervous to try a menstrual cup out but my desire to be more environmentally friendly won so here I am.
Will never go back
(:01/07/2018, By RoshI was quite excited to replace sanitary pads with an environmentally-friendly alternative - although a tad nervous too. This cup almost put me off the idea entirely - but luckily my husband found another one online, which he subsequently ordered and I’m glad to say that I’ve been using it for some time and it’s very comfortable.15/06/2018, By LaraHooray for saving money and not having material waste to throw away! This definitely took some getting used to and it was difficult to gauge which size I needed.
Now that I am used to it I don't mind using it at all because you only need to clean it twice a day compared to other products that can be awkward to sort out away from home.
Sadly I wouldn't be able to recommend this cup to teenagers as it can be challenging to insert and remove and I find the removal is unfortunately not discomfort-free.
Still worth it though. Next time I have to purchase I'll probably go for something smaller and thinner.10/06/2018, By HappychickI recommend these cups....
Worth it.10/06/2018, By TaniaThis is my second Goddess cup, only because my first one was purchased many moons ago and has become too stained for my preference. It took a bit to get used to in the beginning, and removal is sometimes tricky if inserted too deep, but can't believe I survived so many years using tampons instead of this fantastic earth and body friendly product.03/06/2018, By SianLove this cup. I've used cups for over 6 years now. It's not for everyone, but for those who are considering switching over, this brand is excellent. I will say that the walls of the cup are kind of thick, which makes it a little harder to bend into place.01/06/2018, By GenI have tried the Mooncup and the Goddess cup. The Goddess cup is more 'difficult' to remove, as the material is much stiffer than the Mooncup, it is not painful though, it just stretches the opening more than the Mooncup does.
The first two times of removing it, it bothered me, but I am now used to it, and don't find it challenging.
I would buy the Goddess cup again, as it is half the price of the Mooncup, eventhoug it is a bit more tricky to get out.29/05/2018, By JennaI have never tried a product like this before and I am so happy with my decision. It does takes a little getting used to but thats true with anything new. And you cant replace the awesome feeling I get every time I use it knowing I am helping the environment!Very pleased - thank you for products like this that saves on the volume of stuff going into the landfills22/05/2018, By IngridOne saves well over R3000 a year using the Goddess Cup!17/05/2018, By LaraThis is the first mooncup I have tried, and removing it is so painful that I actually get apprehensive. The rim is too thick and hard. I used it for my whole period and other than that it works perfectly.
I luckily have two friends who have encouraged me to try a different brand, because otherwise I may have given up on the mooncup altogether. I know the old model goddess cup was softer and easier to use. I will be buying a different one! Also, I worry that other first time users will have a similar experience, but not have friends to talk them through it.16/05/2018, By ElmonixBest purchase! It's an amazing investment and I just love how easy it is!14/05/2018, By TanyaWas a bit intimidated to use the cup its bigger than you think it would be on arrival and its so different from what we know. Did my home work on YouTube on the various folding methods and how to clean it and tips on inserting.
I was so pleasantly surprised on using it for the first time. I had the most positive experience, no hassle or fuss. I highly recommend that every one tries it, it will change your life! and you feel so good that you are making one small difference to the environment.
27/04/2018, By IngridThis is an excellent product!27/04/2018, By MichanneIt was very daunting when using this product for the first (second and third) time. After that it was like second nature. It does take a few uses to work out the kinks. And yay for being environmenally friendly!18/04/2018, By NixI think this is a fantastic product. The only reason I give this a low rating is to draw the attention of reeders who are interested in buying or maybe has bought but is trying to see if anyone else has had similar experiences. Anyone reading this who has endometriosis or suspects that they might have, unfortunately cups like this might not be for you. It is blindingly painful to position and remove. I actually fear the cup each month. Just keep this in mind.06/04/2018, By KomboKatjieHappy I bought this!04/04/2018, By BrigIt takes a while to get used to, but makes life SO much easier!04/04/2018, By BrigIt takes a while to get used to, but makes life SO much easier!27/03/2018, By AshleighI finally got around to buying myself one of these! And so far it has been amazing!! there is a slight adjustment from tampons to this, but think back to when you first started your period? That was a major learning curve then right? Now isn't and different! Except for the fact that once you get the hang of it, it feels cleaner (for you and the environment) and healthier. Less stress, less worry, less money, less impact... what more can you ask for?23/03/2018, By PreshaBeen using it for a few months now and either I cannot get it right or it leaks all the time!
the stem actually broke off during my first period with it on and it has discoloured. I am not giving up on menstrual cups though so I will keep looking for a better quality brand.23/03/2018, By KomboKittenAccidentally bought 2 but not regretting it!05/03/2018, By NomondeI struggled with removing the cup. I gave it a chance and after the third difficulty, and lots of crying and I decided it was not for me.05/03/2018, By FarranAlthough I love this idea and am a convert to menstrual cups, I would not recommend this product. After first use the removal tab broke off accidentally with my fingernail and has since started to discolour. The entire cup stains darker with each use and the tab is completely black. This indicates possible bacteria growth. I’ve gone back to tampons until I invest in the more expensive version.
I’ve heard nothing but good things about this product from friends so perhaps I got a dodgy batch. Bleak!13/02/2018, By JessicaHighly recommend this product. No more tampons or pads. Cant believe it has taken me this long to find this beautiful hygienic products. Amazing fit, and you dont even know its there, I have recommended this to everyone. Im still confused on why all the other products are out on the market when this should be out on shelving to all women of the public.?12/02/2018, By BrigitteA definite must for all those environmentally conscious people out there, and a great money saver! It is worth the initial adjustment/hassle until you get used to it10/02/2018, By CatherineThis is the 2nd Goddess Cup I have ordered. I was happy with the first, but this one feels like a step back - I am finding it hard to use this cup as it made of stiff, scratchy plastic. It is more difficult to manipulate and remove, and I can't see that I will keep on using it, which is a pity as I was quite happy with the last cup I had.08/02/2018, By LeneLadies, do not be afraid to try this product. It is not painful, does not leak and it is not disgusting to clean. I was afraid of all of these things but once I had tried it I can kick myself for not using it sooner. Every girl should have one.08/02/2018, By AmyGreat product, lil scary at first but great when you get to use it. Try to get some tips online on how to break the suction before you try to take it out.08/02/2018, By CaitlinReally great concept, takes time getting used to. For slight and slim ladies, maybe the smaller size would suit better.04/02/2018, By MarilieThis is my first menstrual cup...was a bit of a challenge to use at first but once I got the hang of it it was good...I had to turn it inside out (as per recommendation on the internet) because it was too long...some more info on the sizes might help...but overall good product.31/01/2018, By OliviaI will never use tampons again - this product is so comfortable. Although it did take some time to get used to (taking it out was initially quite a challenge, now it is effortless), but now it is super convenient. It makes me feel good to live sustainably and using a menstrual cup has definitely added so much joy to this experience. Educate yourself - it's not as daunting as it may seem!30/01/2018, By MariaanI love this! I'm not a tampon fan and didn't ever wear, because it's uncomfortable... This! It's sooo comfy! Thank you for another awesome product, FTN28/01/2018, By MichaelaVery good24/01/2018, By MichelleThis is my second "moon cup" and I love them - have recommended them to all my friends and they're converted too! Takes a little getting used to, but it's incredibly comfortable, hassle-free and so functional if you're active. Very happy with this product!24/01/2018, By MichelleWorks perfectly, very comfortable - and I'll never go back to tampons again. I've found that my symptoms have decreased and I have less bloating and pain. It's also great when I go running or to gym, you don't feel a thing! I did have to trim the tail down for comfort, but that was easy.20/01/2018, By MeganWas a challenge to get used to but Ill never use tampons again. Just stains badly even after boiling it and cleaning it but the best product for a woman to purchase, has even assisted to decrease my candida.09/01/2018, By SandiThis product makes me feel empowered! This cup is easy to clean, store and carry in my handbag and while I am on my period it makes the entire process stress free and I often forget that I am actually on my period.
I have had a few instances when I struggled to get it out but if you follow the instructions and have patience and relax your pelvic muscles, it will come out, so don't stress!21/12/2017, By HeleenMenstrual cups are so much better than using any other sanitary product. It does take some getting used to in the beginning, but once you do you'll never go back. It is a lot less hassle and you never have to worry about leakage.
Whether the product lasts 5years I am not so sure. I had to replace mine after a year.14/12/2017, By LSorry, i meant to give it 5 stars, not 3!14/12/2017, By LTakes some getting used to. Recommend doing some research on sizing before buy. Also do some reading on insertion techniques.
Love the no waste concept! Works really well, no leakage.10/12/2017, By ZangellExpected more comfort and ease of use. Difficult to get out and can be quite uncomfortable. Be sure to get the sizing right! (As the medium is for women who had children or older than 30- as i found this info out from diva cup) and not to do with flow. So cannot use it. Really like the concept though.17/11/2017, By JacquiI used the Goddess cup for the first time this month, I have really enjoyed the no wastage, comfort and no odour aspect however I have found great difficulty in removing it however this has not put me off and I'm sure it will be easier my next moon cycle, it's worth it for the earth ❤️15/11/2017, By NadiaI cannot recommend ditching the tampons for a menstrual cup highly enough. It's really changed my life - much more comfortable, less leakage, more cost-effective in the long-run and no waste.24/10/2017, By MimiEasy to use, very comfortable...I am beyond impressed with this product. I didn't expect it to be fabulous. I just wish every woman could afford it because it is cost-effective.13/10/2017, By CelesteTook some getting used to when I first used it but after a day or so I got the hang of it. Very comfortable, I don't even know I am wearing it. It is so much better than pads and tampons. Great money saver, and great for the environment. Double win!12/10/2017, By WendyDifferent after using tampons since my teens. After only one month I am glad to say that the transition was easier than I anticipated. Good for me - good for the environment.21/09/2017, By CandsAfter hearing my friends rave about this non-stop I decided to take the plunge and it has been the purchase of my life! Kicking myself for taking so long to go this route. No more toxins, no more waste, no more leakage, bad odour ect!09/09/2017, By ShannonAlmost all of my female friends seem to have started using moon cups and I haven't heard any complaints! Plus they come in different sizes and last a long time. Look for projects that help supply these to young women in rural or poorer areas that can't afford menstrual products and miss school because of it. It's better on the environment that disposable pads and should be made freely available to women eventually.31/08/2017, By MI am never using tampons or pads again. This is a wonderful product, no leaks, no stress, only comfort and peace of mind.26/08/2017, By MissyI never use tampons because they always came out and hurt, so was sceptical about using this. But I managed quickly to get it right and it is way comfortable. I'm really impressed. Just wish it came with a nice bag. Container it came in is a bit bulky.08/08/2017, By LadyFaceThe Goddess cup is my first try of any menstrual cup. I chose it because of its affordability and based on the reviews here. 3 cycles in and I am finding it great. The first cycle it took some getting used to. The second was better and third even better. Really recommend it. Bit of a learning curve but great when you get the hang of it. Don't feel limited to using the folding methods provided with the cup. None of them worked for me and I found some other methods online that have been better.02/08/2017, By TarynI wish I had tried this product earlier! It is perfect to use while swimming and for sports/hiking when you are out all day. I feel a lot more confident now and I've encouraged all my friends to get one of these. The only issue is that it's difficult to clean properly when travelling or using public bathrooms etc.25/07/2017, By LindiI've used this cup for a few months. It leaks, is a mission to get in and out and is already disintegrating!! Definitely not a good buy! I love the Idea, but I'll go for the more expensive one next time!
24/07/2017, By VeraThis is the second brand of menstrual cups I have used and I definitely prefer this one. I had problems with my previous one leaking and this one has had no leaks, even through a workout!
I did struggle to get it out in the beginning because I couldn't get a good grip on it, but I figured it out after a few tries and am so happy with it.24/07/2017, By VeraThis is the second brand of menstrual cups I have used and I definitely prefer this one.

I did struggle to get it out in the beginning because I couldn't get a good grip on it, but I figured it out after a few tries and am so happy with it.10/07/2017, By AshMy period came a little early this month, and I was disappointed that my cup had not reached in time. But as luck would have it, my package arrived early as well! I very excitedly sterilised the cup, and then took a stab at inserting it after watching a few videos on how to do it correctly. I did not get it right the first time, so I removed it (a rather weird feeling trying to unsuction the cup), washed it, cut off the stem (horrid little thing), and re-inserted. This time around I got it right. I couldn't feel the cup at all, and it makes such a welcome change to tampons. I am so happy with this purchase, and cannot see myself ever buying disposable products again, unless it's an emergency. The only thing that could make it better is if it came in a little baggie to carry around discretely, but that's definitely not a reason to not make the switch from disposables!22/06/2017, By LarissaI am very happy with this product! Wanted to go greener for a while now, but was unsure if the cup will fit and work. Took some getting used to it and finding the right way to fold for inserting, but once that is out of the way - loving it! Glad I made the switch.14/06/2017, By SanchiaExtremely happy with my Goddess Cup and would definitely recommend it to all women07/06/2017, By CatelinI'm confused...did new sizes just land, I feel sure there was just one option when I purchased mine...anyway. It's not the best quality cup I've used and be warned it's really soft so if you have strong pelvic muscles you're going to be in for a messy ride.25/05/2017, By JazzI love this product. It takes a bit of getting used to, although once you've got the hang of it, you really do have more freedom during that time of the month. I wasn't too sure about it at first, but I will never go back to using tampons or pads again.16/02/2017, By LebohangI don know if all the products are like the cup I received. But mine has bubbles on the surface that is really as serious concern considering where it has to go for hours. Isn this supposed to be smooth with no place where bacteria can hide. And the stem tore the first day I used it and I ended up going back to the tampons I was trying to move from. I am not sure about the quality of the product as it does not even have production of batch coding to show that the quality is controlled somehow. I am not happy!28/01/2017, By LaurenI don know why it took me so long to try it. This is life-changing stuff and I am never going back. First couple of insertions weren perfect, but Im getting the hang of it. Easy to use, comfortable, healthier, more hygienic, significantly more cost-effective. Pair it with Woman-kind fabric pads if concerned about any leaks and you have a waste-free period. Whats not to love?!24/11/2016, By LalliMore comfortable, convenient and theres no plastic to throw away.13/09/2016, By TalítaI ordered this last week, and conveniently got my period two days ago (probably the first time i was looking forward to it). No trouble getting it in or pulling it out. Even with 12 hours, cup wasn nearly full. Love that it comes in a cup like plastic container and not a bag: i pour boiling water into cup to sterilize. Great product. Great price. Great deal. No brainer.31/08/2016, By DanicaLOVE using a cup over anything else when menstruating as its non-absorbent, reusable and you don even feel its in there! I have a medium flow and only have to empty it 2-3 times a day. Can go all night too ;)31/07/2016, By DebbieCould you please include the sizing of this product. It is difficult to compare against other Menstrual Cups without this information.23/06/2016, By Andreawow i was not aware its your own brand, im buying this saturday.
