Image from a listing by a silicone company in China (http://zdkjsy.en.alibaba.com) shows what appears to be the Dutchess boxes in their listing for wholesale menstrual cups

(I’ve pasted in the Smart cup and Dutchess Cup boxes to the image, to show they appear to be the same boxes).

I thought the Dutchess cup said on  its website that it was made in the US, but when I went to check the website to see, I got this notification.  After a few months I tried the site again and it now loads a new website with the domain https://pelvichealthshop.com

  1. Hi Obsidian ;D

    Here is a detailed answer email I got :

    “Hi Quitterie

    Thankyou for your questions – regarding Dutchess Cups Set of 2 Menstrual
    Cups

    There are 4 suction holes.

    There are what we call “waves” but no deep lines or ridges on the side
    of the cups (that would make it difficult to clean) under the Rim and
    above the stem for grip.

    Capacity Size B = 20ml – there are 15 and 7.5 ml markings on the inside
    of the cup to measure flow
    Capacity Size A = 25ml – there are 15 and 7.5 ml markings on the inside
    of the cup to measure flow

    Size B Measurements: Length (including stem): 6.22 cm
    Diameter Inner Rim: 3.3 cm
    Diameter Outer Rim: 4.2 cm

    Size A Measurements: Length (including stem): 6.54 cm
    Diameter Inner Rim: 3.5 cm
    Diameter Outer Rim: 4.5 cm

    Stem Size A (smaller than competition and rounded): 1 cm
    Stem Size B (smaller than competition and rounded): 1 cm

    STEM: We have had nothing but praise for them being comfortable and most
    comments are – you can hardly notice they are in there, they don’t
    notice the stem as the stem is less intrusive than other brands.  Women
    go swimming, running, horse riding with complete success.

    You get 2 for the price of 1 Diva cup and they are made with the highest
    quality FDA approved medical grade silicone you can get. They also come
    with 100% money back guarantee.

    Goodluck in your research.
    ..”
