Faithful to Nature Goddess Cup Medium
Product Review (submitted on 23 July 2018):
This 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.
