What they say ...

Most of the menstrual cup brand websites have glowing testimonials, with women saying they wish they had heard about the products earlier and their lives are a lot easier now, etc. (and sometimes offering a lot of personal information in the process). Here’s a selection of a few testimonials from some of the different brands. They give an idea of why you might want to consider trying a menstrual cup.  


 
I think it’s the best thing I bought in my life.
— Lunette customer
I am going to be one of those crazy testimonials where I say something has changed my life but THIS has! ... I can tell this is going to be a life-saver when I go on my globe trotting travels for 12 months next year.
— Juju customer
Honestly, I’ve spent 20 years using pads because I couldn’t handle using tampons (too uncomfortable) and in 3 days I went from being rather dubious about the JuJu to being a complete convert.
— Juju customer
Best thing I have ever bought! I love love this! Can’t explain how much this has changed my life. I want to tell every woman I meet! I have had no trouble with using my Juju...No more pads, tampons, fuss. No more having to carry around products in your bag and find places every few hours to change. No more remembering when you last changed your tampon. Can forget about it all day! The freedom I felt when I discovered tampons as a teenager is nothing in comparison to this freedom I feel. Thanks so so much for an amazing (Australian) product!

I highly suggest you try a Ruby Cup yourself. I will never go back to pads, tampons or any other type of disposable solution. If you are not interested in trying a Ruby Cup yourself perhaps it would make a great gift for a family member. Once the initial purchase is made you save a lot of money in the long run on the other products you no longer buy. And your purchase helps such a good cause!
— Ruby Cup customer
What I value most is the freedom it gives me. I don’t notice it when I’m wearing it. I swim, exercise, travel, visit friends and sleep with it and never feel restricted by my period.
— OrganiCup customer
I’ve had my Lunette cup for a few months now, and I absolutely love it. I can’t believe how easy and convenient it is to use - and I’m thrilled that it’s also healthier for me and the environment.
— Lunette customer
The Lunette is a present for my best friend... ...Couldn’t rave enough about it, had to show her instead! I also bought one for my sister.... Changed her life too!

Hi mooncup! I’m 13 years old and i started to use the mooncup when i was twelve. I really love it and I have been spreading the word ever since. I have absolutely no fault to pick with the product, its probably one of he best inventions ever. I don’t ever have to worry about anything when I’m on my period and I wish more girls knew about it and wouldn’t be so shy when discussing the topic! Every woman goes through it! I was intimidated by it when I just got it but honestly, when you think about it, the concept couldn’t be any simpler. Thanks so much for making such a amazing product!
— Mooncup customer
THANK YOU!!!! I really struggle with my periods and tampons make me so sore and pads, well I feel like I’m wearing nappies! I saw this advertised and thought, why not! I am 30 and I can’t believe I’ve managed so long without my Mooncup. As soon as I used it, I loved it. I swim a lot and run a lot and before I had to cut down on those activities. Not any more! I feel so free and comfortable. Every woman needs to know and try the Mooncup. Thank you so very much!!!!

The Keeper is practical, saves money and is absolutely invaluable when you are travelling ... I went backpacking through the highly environmentally sensitive “Walls of Jerusalem” in Tasmania. All rubbish has to be taken out and dumped and I was so relieved I didn’t have to spend the week lugging soiled sanitary wear around with me. Its essential if you’re doing a long trip overseas to remote areas where sanitary protection is expensive and/or unavailable.
— The Keeper customer
I do a lot of aquatic sport and the Keeper is just ideal .... Had I known this was available I would have been using it for years, and so would a lot of other women.
— The Keeper customer
Thanks for a great product, I was a bit sceptical at first but now I would not be without my ‘Keeper’. I constantly recommend it to my friends and it saves me a lot of money. My periods are irregular so when I think they are about due and I have to go out then I use my ‘Keeper’. No more wasting money on tampons ‘waiting’ for my period to come.
— The Keeper customer
My friend had been telling me about the glorious DivaCup for two years, and I decided it was finally time to make the switch. I am on Day 4 of Diva and can already tell you that I will NEVER go back! I’ve never felt so good during my period — no leakage, I swear there is less cramping, and I feel so much more carefree because I don’t have to stop and change every 4 hours! And the best part: I’ll never need to worry about running out of tampons, ever again! Thank you! :)
— Diva Cup customer
The best decision you’ll make in a long time.
— OrganiCup customer
I truly think it is an amazing invention that has improved my life quality during my period.
— OrganiCup customer
I absolutely love my femmecup. It’s like a new world opened up for me when i started using it. I have recommended this femmecup for all my family and friends.
— FemmeCup customer
I completely love my femmecup. I used to absolutely hate being on my period but now using a femmecup has meant I feel no different to any other time in the month.
— FemmeCup customer
I am so thrilled with my femmecup I’ve had no problems, only happiness that I learned about this outstanding alternative to tampons from a good friend. I believe these truly are the future of sanitary protection - at least I HOPE so!...Thanks for an outstanding product! I can’t imagine ever going back. :-)
— FemmeCup customer
This was my first time using a menstrual cup and I have to say I love it! I love the fact that it is super environmentally friendly, and how it is healthier for me as well! It is very easy to use and works great. I will never go back to using tampons and pads ever again. I wish more people knew about these things!
— LadyCup customer
I’ve been using Ladycup since March 2011, and I LOVE IT!! I have two ladycups (transparent and blue), because I travel very much and I keep one of them at home and the other in my bag. I carefully wash them before and after my period, and I’m really happy to have discovered this marvellous item. It really changed my life: I often had candidiasis (thrush) after using tampons, but with LadyCup nevermore. I LOVE IT!!!
— LadyCup customer
I feel like I am more in touch with my own anatomy and I have more self-respect and do not feel grossed out by my own parts any longer :) I also no longer experience the gross smell of pads or the rough pain of tampons. It has been a very positive experience overall.
— LadyCup customer
I just started sing Softcups this summer and I wanted to let you know that I absolutely LOVE them! Your product has brought me the freedom to do my everyday activities even while having my period….I no longer worry about leakage and much to my husband’s delight we can even engage in sex during that time of the month. I admit I was apprehensive at first when it came to taking the Softcups out but I quickly learned how to do so with minimal muss and fuss. I am telling all of my friends and family that they need to switch to your product. I am one very satisfied customer, and at 41 years of age no longer dread having my period. Thank you so much for a wonderful product.
— SoftCups (disposables) customer
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have finally gained confidence on my two very heavy days. In my job, a break is not possible for 3 hours or longer, so EXTREME leaks” were always a concern. I used to keep super-plus tampons in my house, my car, my purse, my laptop case, my work cubicle, my suitcase, etc. I never had enough. The most embarrassing was having to go the bathroom several times on a flight from San Fran to Hawaii, then having to keep a tampon close for 2 days while in a swimming suit. NEVER AGAIN!
— SoftCups (disposables) customer
I’m such a convert from using just one (now two) samples! I was hesitant to try since this was a change, but then again I didn’t know this revolutionary (at least in my world) product existed! I think most girls are okay with the status quo of using either a tampon or pad. That’s kinda all that’s been shoved down our throats regarding feminine hygiene products. I didn’t even think there was an alternative.
