Menstrual Cups

Review – Ruby Cup

I was lucky enough to be sent a Ruby Cup to review – thank you very much :D

It came in a pink post envelope, with the cup, pouch and instruction sheet.

The cup is a nice soft silicone.  It’s “squishyness” is about comparable to the Fleurcup.  The stem is about the same size as the tube stems, but the walls of the tube are a lot thicker, giving a very sturdy stem.  It has a series of raised bums on the stem for extra grip.  I found this stem to have a good amount of grip because it felt so solid, yet it’s flexible enough that it was not uncomfortable to wear without the stem trimmed.  If I really thought about it, I was aware of the stem sometimes, but definitely not as much as a Mooncup/Keeper’s stem.  The stem being hollow however, did manage to collect some blood, but that rinsed out without problem.  I find this stem definitely more comfortable and easier to grip than most of the other tube/rounded stems.  My favourite stem design is still the tab stem however.

I’ve tried so many cups now that it’s hard to compare them against each other for things like feel and ease of insertion removal…. but I found this cup inserted without trouble, popped open cleanly without trouble, was removed without trouble and cleaned without trouble :)  The airholes on the cup rinsed clean without holding onto any blood, as did the inside writing (the words “Ruby Cup” and measring lines are in raised writing inside the cup)

The cup shape is very similar to the Fleurcup – with the exception being the stem of course.  There are also a few other differences between the cup – the Fleurcup’s base grip lines are different (more pronounced and not complete rings), and the Ruby Cup has a slightly different rim, with there being an extra “bump” (Tiny ridge) where the Fleurcup’s is smooth.

All in all, I was quite happy with this cup.

  1. Really cool ! ;D-
    May I ask about your sentence : “It’s “squishyness” is about comparable to the Fleurcup.” you mean the *small* or large Fleurcup ? :D — hm cause the large is soft indeed, while the small model kind of is about the small Lunette’s squishyness or so, thus fairly firm already..

    Would you also add the dimensions? hm but maybe you already did it on another (previous) presentation page you made for the Ruby^^

  4. Please say something about the capacity (up to the rim and the holes). How long did it go on the heaviest day?
