41 out of 46 people would recommend this product02/07/2021, By AmySuch a big fan of Faithful to Nature but really disappointed in this product. I have been using a cup for 5 years (specifically Betula's foldable cup) and needed to get a new one. Had such high hopes, but found so many issues. The stem is so short that it's irrelevant, plus it has sharp edges which hurt! The silicone is not malleable, it's rather hard, so when you remove the cup, it springs back in to shape really quickly which really can cause a mess if you're not well-versed. The silicone is also so thick around the rim, which can make removal a little painful. All of this is so different to the other brands out there that it makes me despair that not enough research went in to the making of this cup. Sadly will not be using this again, and really don't encourage others to use it either (especially not first-timers!)04/02/2021, By BellaMy first time using a cup. Glad I read reviews that encourage you to keep on trying till you succeed. The first two days were discouraging and by the end of day two I wanted to give up. There were so much leakage. After some more research I figured out my cervix is too short for the large cup I ordered. I ordered large because I have a very heavy flow. Too late I learned that you should measure your cervix for the right size and not order on flow alone. The solution: I turned the cup inside out, and I can also squeeze a bit of the bottom in to regulate the length. It works like a dream and I am thankful I persisted. I would like to order a smaller size in the future, for now I’ll make do and rather order reusable pantyliners.
All in all I would recommend this cup, I would just have appreciated a bit more guidance as to what size to buy.02/02/2021, By Bee1986Very difficult to remove as the stem is very short. Previously used a moon cup which worked much better as it has a longer stem and better design. Would not recommend this product.26/01/2021, By BethanyVery comfortable and great product07/01/2021, By Sasha-LeeI love it!!!!!20/12/2020, By SharleneSaves alot of money and is easy to use.27/10/2020, By AliyahGreat Product25/10/2020, By MienEco friendly23/09/2020, By Emma-LisaNot entirely happy with this product. I previously had a Moon Cup that sealed much better and due to no stock in SA I had to replace it with a Goddess cup. It works to an extent but I will be replacing it with the Moon Cup as soon as there stock again02/09/2020, By MeganI love this product.
I tried it for the first time, I have learnt that I need to change the cup every 4 hours and I found that o leaked a little bit while using it but it was my first time, it might net better as I use it. I like how environmentally friendly it it and how easy it is to use and I don’t have to stress about whether I have a tampon in my bag or anything like that. I’d definitely recommend using one, it’s really not as scary as it seems. Nice and simple to remove and clean in public and private places.23/08/2020, By MegThis has changed my life! I literally have to change a tampon every 2 hours, my first time using this cup has been such an incredible experience, no leakage, no stress about having to change every so often. It was a bit stressful taking it out for the first time but I’m sure it will get better with practice? You can’t even feel that it’s in you and it’s such a pleasure cleaning it and reusing it. - I’m definitely recommending this to others and I definitely will not be going back to tampons.22/07/2020, By NikkiThe cup is a life changer, this cup in particular seems to fit exceptionally well in comparison to others I have tried. Be sure to order the correct size. Shorter, less painful, more discrete periods....no complaints15/07/2020, By HeidiDoes the job. The stem could be a bit longer , but I still manage.09/05/2020, By shelbyVery effective17/03/2020, By LizThis is my first cup. I regret not buying one sooner. First use was uncomfortable as it jabbed in all the wrong places, but it wasn’t inserted correctly. Once I got the hang of it (which happened quickly) my life is changed forever. Won’t be using tampons anymore.20/02/2020, By MartineI've used my cup for over a year now and I've never had any issues with it. It took me a few hours to get used to it and I've never looked back since. Whenever I've had to use tamps or pads again, they were extremely uncomfortable compared to the cup. Stick to it - your body will thank you.21/11/2019, By ZonelleAnother thing that revolutionised my life. Get one, you won't regret it!18/10/2019, By OlgaVery hard silicone, it hurts when inserted or pulled out.I somewhat regret buying this :(05/10/2019, By KerryThis ticks the basics when it comes to a menstrual cup. However I was looking for a large size for heavy flow to replace my last cup. This is not it. Also the short "pull tab" makes it lots harder to remove the cup. I'm going to have to reorder my original cup- the pink cup. I do like that this is white- so it's easy to be reassured that the cup is clean and fresh. Also the container it comes in is plastic. I guess it allows for better storage? But plastic? Perhaps an alternative material would be more appropriate? If you have a lighter flow this could work for you. For not it'll have to be my back up.12/09/2019, By JoyIt is good not to be filling the bin with pads. However I did have a bit of leakage and the insertion took a little getting used to. Once inserted properly it didn't hurt at all.02/09/2019, By NaomiThis is my first cup. I did my research beforehand, practiced my folding techniques and I love the cup and the experience. Just note, if you have really heavy flow, you’ll have to empty it more often. I need to about once every hour. So my search is on for a higher volume cup15/08/2019, By CindySuch a valuable product. This clever concept will reduce the cost of feminine hygiene and make managing your menstrual cycle more affordable for many impoverished communities13/08/2019, By VeronicaThis was my first cup and I am so happy with it. I found the tab at the bottom to be a bit difficult to grab, but once you get the hang of it it works well. The C-fold was a little difficult so I did a rose/origami kind of fold which did the trick.
I am curious to know how it will be with a softer silicone, though.13/05/2019, By PavThis make me feel so much better about my choices - less waste, less chemicals in my products. There is leakage but I've researched and it seems this happens across all brands.09/04/2019, By TeniqueNot as bad as you might think. I didn't have any issues inserting the cup - just wish the tab were longer because it takes a while to get a firm grip on it.14/03/2019, By MeyerineIt's new, so using it will take some getting used to, but so far, so good. I'm sure it'll be a little tougher in public places where you don't have a basin to rinse it off in right next to you, but a friend suggested a water bottle... So there's that... I am however ecstatic about the fact that I have had absolutely NO PERIOD PAINS while using the cup and that I've created no plastic or paper waste by using this!
I'll definitely suggest a cup to all of my friends...01/03/2019, By MarietjieWorks well for me. Definitely will buy again.27/01/2019, By MelThis cup has been a lifesaver. Turned my ridiculously heavy peri-menopausal flow from a nightmare into something I can actually manage. I cannot be more grateful and more happy.09/12/2018, By GabiI love the Goddess cups. This one is great for heavy flow and I've experienced no leaking, except for the first few times when still experimenting with positioning. It does take a few goes to get the position just right, but after that I had no other issues. I highly recommend getting a medium or small cup for lighter days though.07/12/2018, By BronwenI love, love, love this cup. So comfortable I don't even know it's there, plus its design is excellent - fits perfectly and does not budge. Best cup I've owned.07/12/2018, By CharlieKnew I wanted to take the step to a healthier and more sustainable solution but to be honest was real nervous to make the change. I do admit the first time inserting and removing was a bit of a challenge but was incredibly surprised how quickly I got used to it and how comfortable it was. Since haven't experienced any problems or leakage. So glad I made the decision and don't regret it at all. Recommend you to try it for yourself :)08/11/2018, By TamsinTakes a while to get used to but this is my second one (got the smaller option) feel better using this instead of conventional options12/10/2018, By CarinaI am estatic about this cup. I took the leap and got it, my first menstrual cup. I used it throughout my whole cycle. I only had one night of leaking due to human error. At times I forgot I was on my period, I only had to empty it every morning and night.
I really do recommend this to every woman.11/09/2018, By NadiaIt is my first time using the cup and when I position it correctly it is amazing. You don't feel anything. I did havr to wear a pad on my second day along with the cup as I do have extreme heavy flow then. I had to change my cup more than 2 times, I see some only change it twice a day. It did leak, but I am not sure if it is because I might have put it in incorrectly or because of my heavy flow. It is sometimes difficult to remove because of the short grip, but I find that you you squeeze your vaginal muscles it comes out easy.
I would definitely recommend this to all women out there. Mayby while still getting use to it use panty liners or pads while using the cup and then once you get the hang of it say goodbye to pads tampons anf panty liners30/08/2018, By CelesteIt took a little getting used to and a few Youtube review videos, but so glad I moved from tampons and pads to this.
The only thing is the tab could be better designed (long, easier to grip), but otherwise this is comfortable and does it's job.18/08/2018, By JuliaI have only used it twice so far, I am really happy with it except for the fact that I really battle to get it out. If the tab was slightly longer and wider instead of tapered , I think it would make it easier to get out. I am glad to read other reviews that say it gets easier to remove as you get used to it.13/08/2018, By MarietjieLife saver. Not so difficult to get use to inserting. Less trouble. Godsend!03/08/2018, By JessI had been introduced to the concept of a menstrual cup a few years ago, and did some half hearted online research a few years later. It was not until a colleague mentioned she had bought one and that it was amazing that I seriously considered getting one myself. The cost was a big factor for me. But once I realized how much money I would be saving each month on tampons and sanitary pads, I was sold. My first experience inserting and removing the cup went well, and my first menstrual cycle with the cup was such a breeze! What a change, to be able to go about my day and know that I only needed to check the cup every 8 hours or so. I literally emptied it twice a day - morning and early evening. Completely life changing. I have had some issues with it over the year or so I have been using this cup. Sometimes I am sure I have inserted it properly and that it has opened fully, only to have leakage. But I have gotten better at checking now. It can also be a little difficult to remove, if it moves a little to high inside your body. But you can grab the tab at the end to start pulling and then grab the base of it. I think my biggest complaint is the staining of the cup itself. I was not expecting that. Mine is now a horrible beige/brown colour. I saw another reviewer mention she bleaches hers with FTN bleach. I might give that a go.31/07/2018, By MarietjieReceived but not yet used. Will give a review after that. Figure it will take a little getting use to, but with the positive reviews I am really hoping for success.14/05/2018, By JulesTakes a couple of cycles to get used to and removing it can be a challenge at first but once you get the hang of it it's fabulous. Not having to throw stuff in the bin is a great feeling.
Try it, you won't regret it.31/03/2018, By ZonelleMost amazing invention ever, completely in love. Every woman should have one!04/12/2017, By siriThis is one of the best personal buys I've made this year. Switching from disposable tampons to the cup, I had a few frights struggling to remove it! But, once I'd figured out the technique, it's been an absolute pleasure. I don't have to think or worry about it, it's reusable and easy to clean, and gentle on the environment. I recommended it to my sister, who's using it, and who recommended it to her housemates! It's great!13/10/2017, By ZeldaI absolutely love this. I use it as a night cream and in the place of petroleum jelly.04/08/2017, By VishanthiThis was my first cup so I'm grateful for the introduction. However, the silicon is too soft, and I have since found much better brands overseas. Wondering whether this SA brand can improve the quality of the cup? I would definitely support local in that case.09/06/2017, By RuzanneI bought this as my first cup. What a fantastic choice!
Once I got the hang of it, no leaks no fuss! This will certainly be my go-to cup for the next couple of years once replacement is needed.24/11/2016, By NHSLike many other ladies, I was hesitant about these menstrual cups... It seemed gross to me. However, after long consideration, I decided to give it a try. It needed a bit of practise but I love it and will never look back! I use the cup in combination with Mama cloth and it is just the best thing ever! So glad I no longer produce all that waste!
