56 out of 59 people would recommend this product16/03/2021, By MI have tried a few menstrual cups and always gave up after using it a few times. I think the cups were always too big or the tail wasn't robust enough. This cup is great and works well. I went for a small cup this time and it fits comfortably. I think it is important to follow the size guidelines and even if you have a heavy flow consider buying the small cup and change it more regularly if you are worried about size.
Benefits of the cup:
-Can leave it in for longer- I change mine twice a day compared to like 5 times a day with tampons
-No more string feeling soggy
-Super convenient for life, don't have to buy tampons every month
-Affordable and cost effective over the long run
Also, it is one small step to making a difference to the environment which is always a plus
There are no downsides really but you need to persist if the first few times are uncomfortable. My first few nights the cup moved up very high and I struggled to get it out the next morning which made me panic. I then didn't push the cup so far in and after a long night I would make sure to relax and breath and then pull it out. Point is don't panic if the cup feels like a nightmare on the first few tries, rather persist and it will become a seamless process, and you will wonder why you ever used tampons in the beginning.
27/02/2021, By BijouxAmazing product! It takes the first one or two inserts to get used to it but you won’t look back. It’s easy to clean and no string! Great for Mother Earth as well! No more tampons :) The pouch it comes in is so beautiful as well! Thanks Faithful to Nature!24/02/2021, By MelPerfect, environmentally friendly way to get through the monthly visitor.If you have a heavy flow but small inner wall, it’s a bit of a pickle. But I love how comfy the size is.07/02/2021, By BHighly recommend for small girls01/02/2021, By ShenizWorked well once I got the hang of it.01/02/2021, By LandiAbsolutely love this product. Would definitely recommend. Not only is this environmentally friendly but it is also budget friendly. Never going back to tampons. These are super comfy, you don't even feel that you are wearing it. I've actually brought a second one in a different size.28/01/2021, By zeeBe sure to allow yourself some time to insert and remove the cup the first few times. A few months later and removing the cup is still a challenge for me. But its's amazing how empowering you feel wearing a cup, its so comfortable! I have a heavy flow and I only need to empty twice a day. I wear a liner just in case it leaks, but it never does, just wipe the area properly after inserting .27/01/2021, By ...Would honestly never go back to tampons or pads after using this cup. Forget that it’s even in sometimes because it’s so comfortable. Also love the fact that I’m not throwing away tons of sanitary pads etc each period that’s destroying the environment. Love love love this product!!13/01/2021, By RuthI am pleasantly surprised by this little cup! So comfortable and convenient.11/01/2021, By ChristineWould highly recommend this! So comfortable and convenient, I will never go back to pads and tampons.
My only complaint would be with the deliver service, they’re extremely slow and disorganised.08/01/2021, By LISAI love this, got it for a friend as well and she loves it too :)17/12/2020, By JessFirst time using the menstrual cup and I was a bit nervous about trying it out but the price tag and use time was attractive. It has been surprisingly easy to use and comfortable.30/11/2020, By Gem247I am so impressed with this product!! I was so happy using it. It’s so comfortable I didn’t feel it at all. I left it in for probs 12 hours max and it never leaked! It’s easy to insert and remove. I did have trouble at first but I found what works for me. This is amazing!! Im recommending to friends!!25/11/2020, By NICOLEI was so worried about switching, and the bad reviews made me more nervous. But I love this cup! It has honestly changed the whole experience of my period, is more comfortable than a tampon, and just better on every front13/11/2020, By PamExtremely rigid. Probably works for others, but was a complete no go for me. Kept snapping open (really hard! Super painful every time it happened) every time I tried to fold it even after numerous attempts, and insertion was honestly an excruciating process. Went right back to using pads again after attempting to get this right for several months. If you need a softer cup this is not for you.11/11/2020, By NtandoVery great product, it fits well and is easy to use. I just wish it came in other colors as-well31/10/2020, By JESSICAGreat product and packaging.
I love this brand!27/10/2020, By AliyahGreat Product25/10/2020, By AudreyBrilliant18/10/2020, By ClaireHonestly such an easy product to use. Cup fits well and stays in comfortably without any leakage.09/10/2020, By JoanBrilliant! I wish I'd bought one sooner. I'm never going to have to buy or use tampons again. This is so easy to use and far more comfortable and less messy than tampons. Plus I get to feel good about myself for being eco-friendly and save money in the long run.13/09/2020, By LeyaI was always a little afraid of menstrual cups and was always worried that this cup would have been too big for me. But it was perfect (I am 22 and do not have any children)! I would recommend measuring your cervix first, there are tons of tutorials on Youtube to assist with this. But it is honestly so easy! I wish I had bought my cup sooner!12/09/2020, By TerryThis is a well priced, eco friendly alternative :) Great product!11/09/2020, By HMGreat product!04/09/2020, By JanaDefinitely something to get used to at first but never looking back to the 'old ways'. This is the future30/08/2020, By MiancaWas scary to use at first but works good! Love going eco-friendly22/07/2020, By TamrinIt definitely took awhile to get used to but once you do it works amazingly! Also, great price in comparison to other ones on the market.15/07/2020, By ClaudineNever looking back to single-use menstrual products!! This is amazing!25/06/2020, By TheMinimalistPlantMomFrom the get-go, the Goddess Cup was flexible, easy to clean, and a perfect fit. Would recommend two things before committing to a cup: (i) do your research about how menstrual cups are inserted, removed, cleaned, and maintained (YouTube reviews and journal articles comparing menstrual hygiene products are reliable sources); and (ii) get comfortable with the anatomy (always a good idea to check the height of one's cervix before purchasing a cup).
This is a life-changing product.25/06/2020, By CTGreat product. I've been using a menstrual cup for years but little did I know I was using the wrong size - what a difference!11/05/2020, By AnonMuch easier to get the hang of than I expected.09/05/2020, By SalomeAmazing cup, holds all the blood at bay04/05/2020, By CaseyIt takes a bit of getting used to, but great once you have the hang of it09/04/2020, By CandA MUST HAVE02/04/2020, By AvZDefinitely something to get use to, but amazing!!! Thank you for the amazing products and service always!30/03/2020, By BuzI panicked on the first day of using it as it’s so tiny but did a great job. I got used to it & now swap between small & medium cups depending on my flow.20/02/2020, By CharlotteThe little bit at the bottom for pulling it out, is quite uncomfortable. I've noticed other brands have softer options that bend and move when your body moves. If you walk around or sit you can notice that a hard plastic piece is there and at the wrong angle, hurts a bit. However I thought it was a well priced, nicely packaged and offered ample instructions.02/02/2020, By JanytaLove this product. Soo much better than tampons and pads!
Originally I bought a medium cup but I never used it because when I saw the size I knew it was too big. The small is perfect for me.
If you buy it take note of the measurements, I wasted money by buying 2 but I am much happier now with the small.18/10/2019, By NadineSo after using a bigger size cup of a different brand a few years ago, and realizing it was too big for me (gave me stomach cramps and headaches), I finally decided to try a smaller cup. I was surprised exactly how small it was. However, it does hold up even on my heavy flow days. And no cramps or headaches! BUT, this one is leaking a little bit. I've only used it on one cycle so maybe it will take some more testing out and getting used to... I also really struggled to get this one out, even when breaking the seal it was an effort. The stem didn't really help, I had to push down onto the cup, folding it, and then remove (risking spillage but luckily it didnt). The stem seems to be a real issue, especially since it felt too long and kept poking me while sitting throughout the day, yet it had no use in the removal process. Will cut the stem and see if that removes the poking situation, and keep testing out ways to remove. Also struggled quite a bit to get the cup to pop open with insertion. These cups do take some getting used to, so I guess its just trial and error.16/10/2019, By ClaudiaMy first time using one, may I suggest one reads up about the pros and cons of using before purchasing one. I got the fright of my life when I couldn't get it out. Suggestion... a bigger or better grip section on the cup will help. The groves on the grip a bit soft or not prominant enough. Also a section in the pamflet should be revised where it says "Can I use The Goddess Cup during sporting activities?" Other than that a great buy! Goodbye tampons!!! Thanks F2N!12/10/2019, By RumiI have been using a ‘softcup’ for my last three cycles - one that I got from clicks so I was extremely excited to get this proper cup - sadly I was a bit disappointed. The material seems a bit hard and I struggled to get it out - I don’t know if it’s just the shape that isn’t right for me - I know that I don’t have a heavy flow so it shouldn’t be the size that’s a problem. But it leaked a lot so within a day of reinserting it over and over I gave up and went back to my other cup :(29/07/2019, By ArlineNot sure yet, bought this one - as after a life changing 2 years of using the previous version of this cup in medium (which I was happy with but always sure too large) I decided to get another- this in small
Leaky, new softer silicon (which I dont like as much as the previous and possibly contributes to leaky nature) ...going to wait it out- maybe just human error22/07/2019, By JessA life-changing product. My frequency of change/emptying went from every 1-2 hours on a heavy day, to 5 hours and then up to 7 hours when lighter. I wish I had made the change sooner, I am less anxious or less conscious about being 'on' and feel more free using this product, not to mention less guilt about my enviro footprint.
The only product critique I have is that I would like the tab to be a little longer to make it easier to retrieve.
It is easy to insert and you can feel when it goes into place. The overflow holes work well.
21/07/2019, By LisaDoes exactly what it's supposed to. Some say it's too small but I'm a 31 year old and the size works for me. It just depends on your body as to what size you need and it may be a case of trial and error. I don't find that its difficult to remove, you just have to sit on the loo and push to be explicit (kind of like the opposite of a kegel!) Once you push a bit it comes right down and its easy to grab it and pull it out. It can be a bit scary at first but it's designed with all that in mind.. it won't get stuck haha! And just think of what you're doing for the environment! <326/03/2019, By Amy-LouiseI was very very scepticle about giving the menstrual cup a go but I am so glad I did, not only am I saving money and the environment but it has made such a huge difference to me personally. At first it was difficult to pull out but on the second go I got the hang of it. It is easy to use once you get the hang of it. Very happy with my purchase :)14/03/2019, By KateThe tab is very difficult to grab hold of no less pull. I had to ask my partner, who is a medical doctor, to help me get it out and even he struggled (in the instructions it says that you should just squeeze the cup to release the suction but this did not work). If I was by myself or had squeamish family members I would have had to go to a GP to get it removed.
I would suggest getting one with a handle that you can grasp hold of.11/03/2019, By KateBought this for a 12-year-old girl, as I know they're supposed to take a small, but it is just too itty bitty. She was having to change it every hour and there was loads of spillage. Great product, but definitely recommend starting a size bigger <309/01/2019, By TracyOne of the best decisions ever made. I save so much money and save the environment! It took a bit of trial and error at first but I got it now. I tied a string to the base for quicker changes.26/11/2018, By TruA small item that will make a huge difference in your life! I just love this cup, easy to use and maintain. The material is not as soft as other cups I've tried, this ensures that it pops open easily. Super comfy, you don't even know it's there. I have had no leakage or accidents with this cup at all. A fantastic greener alternative to menstrual products. I can highly recommend this product!28/09/2018, By TiaThough it does take some practice to get the hang of it, the Goddess Cup worked well.
The cup was soft and flexible and easy to insert. Once in, it was very comfortable, however I wish the stem was longer so it could be cut to size. Even though the stem isn't used to remove the cup, having a longer stem would make removal easier just in terms of being able to reach the cup. Or maybe have some gradations/markings on the body of the cup for grip. The pamphlet could be more detailed in the removal section. Other than that I think it's a great product and would definitely recommend it.
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.26/03/2018, By Taryn EliseReally great to find a smaller cup for those pre and post days- saves me needing to use pads.24/03/2018, By BosnimfUsed Tampons for years, then due to medication for my endo I had no period. Recently had to change and period started again. Heard a lot about the cups and thought I would give it a try. I could not fold it properly as per instruction so used my own which worked. I have to push it up a bit higher than recommended otherwise I feel it....this makes it a bit more difficult to remove but doable. With time it will probably become better.07/03/2018, By MollyI bought this last year when it was pink and quite soft. It was lovely! Very comfortable. But now that they've changed the product to a harder material I find it hurts me quite a bit. I'm really unhappy that it's changed.27/01/2018, By samI was so surprised at how I was able to insert this the very first try. I did pray before as I was really nervous and thats what helped. Uncomfortable getting so personal with myself though. It leaked a very little. However, when removing, it was so difficult because I felt my skin get pulled out with the cup. After some drama and screaming, it did come out. I don't think I used the proper technique when removing so I'm gona try next time. But I have made the change and have encouraged my sister n neice to try it too.15/01/2018, By MelissaI LOVE my Goddess Cup. This product is perfect for the conscious woman. I now make zero waste during my period and feel great knowing I am not putting harmful chemicals or materials in my body during this time. This cup is easy to use and sit very comfortably if inserted correctly.07/01/2018, By ColeGreat purchase. Good quality. No issues. Wish I'd had one of these 20 years ago!07/01/2018, By ColeGreat purchase. Good quality. No issues. Wish I'd had one of these 20 years ago!16/11/2017, By LiesieI luv the concept of these cups. I hate having to buy tampons every month and I luv that it is more environmentally friendly.
My first cup I bought was the MyOwnCup. When I get it in right, it worked wonderfully. But most times I struggled to make it open nicely. Not sure if I was maybe doing something wrong. After struggling to a few minutes to get it right, I through it in the bin. I now bought the Light Goddess Cup, thinking that the other one was to big, since I haven't given birth. The smaller opens up much easier, so no troubles with that. The problem I sit with now is, that it is sometimes leaking. Not sure if it is because it's smaller or if I'm still doing something wrong. At this stage not sure if I should spend the money and try the medium size Goddess Cup or just use the smaller one, once my flow is lighter.
