Menstrual Cups

Unnamed “Discharge” cups

(not the nicest post title :D)

Found by “Care for Women” on AliExpress

These cups are calling themselves a “discharge” cup, which is how they describe cups like the Bassrose, Victoria Love and Honey Moon, that can be emptied while still inside the vagina.

The last one shown above appears to be the same sort of design as the Victoria Love, and may empty from the sides of the stem rather than the bottom, with a ball inside to stop the cup leaking when not being emptied.

The other styles below don’t have any ball/stopper designs, so I’m not sure how the other styles work. Looking at the picture on the far right – perhaps it’s a split layer that will open when you squeeze the sides of the stem?

~ Update ~
These cups are being sold under the name “Aiwo” – See the listing for them here (Aiwo)

.

Some of the AliExpress listings mention it being made from food-grade silicone though, not medical grade:

Honeymoon Cup

You can find them here or here – or search AliExpress for “Discharge cup” (not a nice term for it I know, but that’s what they call them)

Measurements: 4mm diameter, 70mm long including stem (4omm long stem)  (One size)
Capacity: 25mls

I’d seen reference to this cup before, when Bassrose came out.  The old Bassrose product listings showed a cup with a stopper stem, referencing it as a 2nd Generation cup (with VictoriaLove as 3rd Gen, and Bassrose as 4th)

I recall discussing it with other knowledgeable cup-people, who mentioned a cup name I vaguely recall had honey in the name 😀  But we were never able to find any reference to it being sold anywhere.  Well, now it is!  The original design (the one Bassrose referenced) is shown on the Honey Moon certificates they include in the listing, and that looks like the cup that is shown on the box:

Which seems to have a very narrow stem with a pointy stopper that is used to stop the blood draining out.  However the cup itself seems to have been redesigned to include a ball-valve like the Bassrose cup, but with a body shape more similar to standard menstrual cups.  I’m not sure what the extra stopper pieces are for?  It could be that you have the option of using either the balls or the stoppers?

Cup News

Searching through AliExpress I found a couple of interesting things…

.

Gyncup, for wholesale at $5.52 each (here)….. making me further suspect these are cheaply made Chinese cups (Aneer/iCare?) with new branding

gyncup-ali

A cup that looks like a copy of the old style Yuuki (here and here) Available in colours.  Looks like the Girlies Cup.

A new look Bassrose box (here), but not the valve-stem Bassrose cup, it shows a Blossom/Dutchess etc. cup instead.
