My Review: https://menstrualcups.wordpress.com/2015/02/13/femmycycle-review
Other Details: This cup is shaped more like a wine goblet, and has a “lid” type feature. While inserted it works like a funnel, so the blood can flow through the smaller hole into the cup, which helps stop the blood leaking out of the cup while the wearer is lying down.  This “lid” part is pulled up to allow the cup to be emptied.

  1. Hey Obsidian :D Such another unique nice adventure with this wine goblet-like cup! hee-hee
    Hm I’m not sure at all if you’d be allowed to divulge it, o but well, might FemmyCycle be that famous mysterious secret cup ?^^^

  2. The design doesn’t really jive with me. How would you clean it? It just doesn’t seem like a good idea at all.

  3. I ordered a set of these and didn’t like them. They’re really difficult to figure out how to get in properly and once they are in right they have a tendency to form a suction inside. They are very wide also. Urinating became a real issue with it in.

  4. Have you tried this cup yet? I am thinking of getting one as they are now available in a single pack from a US retailer.

  5. I had it as well, and they didn’t work with me either; like someone else said, urinating was a problem. But I love the design–and the fact that you get two of them!

  6. I used the older design Femmycycle (with the much larger ring and a more evenly round shape) for the better part of a year. It did take awhile to figure out how to get the top to pop open around my cervix (the bottom of the cup does not have to be popped open, and in fact, it’s not supposed to be), but once I had that sorted out, it was great for my sometimes-heavy periods, traveling all over the place and in a living/working arrangement that would’ve made tampons extremely inconvenient. I was able to get 24 hours of wear out of it on more than one heavy day without leaks. The only thing is that it is rather cumbersome to remove and insert outside the shower. My periods weren’t so heavy back then that I had to deal with it outside the shower but for someone with heavier bleeding it’s something to think about, and also, the glossy finish silicone always sticks to my skin so I always needed to use a lot of lube to get it in. My cervix is high so the ring stem never posed a problem. Once I purchased the large Si-Bell I no longer needed the FC as well (same capacity) so I sold mine off.
