Menstrual Cups

Happy Girl Cup

happygirl

Looks to be the same as the Eva Cup, and possibly is one of the rebranded Aneer/cheap Chinese cups.

The only info the listings give is that the large size has a capacity of 20mls.  Which doesn’t seem accurate

The website for the brand who have trademarked the name “Happy Girl Cup” is here – http://www.homecures.co.uk but is undergoing restoration (screenshot) – which is pretty unprofessional IMHO, so that to me further proves this is a rebranding, as a legitimate cup brand is likely to be more professional than that.  If you really do have to do “restoration” on a website, it would look better to just automatically redirect people to the alternative site instead of putting up a page and making them manually go there, and have a better looking landing page,  but anyway…. The redirected site is here: http://www.remede-naturel.net/our-natural-products/158-happy-girl-cup-coupe-menstruelle-.html  and the cups are also sold on Amazon.


The listing on the website starts with this..

happygirl3So the info about their cup is information that their clients have given them, not stuff they actually know to be true?  That’s… reassuring…

Not sure who the clients are, does it mean people who have bought the cup?  or the people who made the cup?  Either way, the listing is full of questionable (if not misleading) claims, so I doubt the qualifications of these “clients” – for example:

  • Tampons and sanitary towels have a high risk factor for our health. They contain chlorine and other chemicals, which can be the cause of cancer besides less serious problems, as well as posing other possibilites such as Toxic Shock. Home Cures Happy Girl Cup™ has no such problem. It is ideal for ladies who suffer from gynecological problems, such as eczema, allergies, mycosis, etc.” – While there have been no reported cases of a menstrual cup causing TSS*, generally good cup companies will phrase it more in the way I just did, rather than to say there is no risk of TSS with cup use.  Because the reality is that you can’t say for 100% sure that there is no risk whatsoever in using a menstrual cup, and saying so opens you up to being sued if someone did.  Also are eczema and allergies gynecological problems?
    • *  I have heard through the grapevine that there has been a recent suspected case of TSS from a menstrual cup in France… but I have been unable to find the source of this to verify if it’s true or not.  If it is true, then this does prove that while unlikely, and safer than tampons, it is possible to get TSS while using a cup.
  • After iniital sterilisation each month, ladies can be certain that there is no chance of contact with any chemicals. ” – Well technically even water is a “chemical“.  So it’s actually impossible for anyone to have no chance of contact with a chemical when using a cup (or at any other time)… given that a silicone menstrual cup itself is made from a chemical compound.  Though I think what they are meaning here is that there is no harmful exposure to chemicals (that we are aware of) when using a menstrual cup, which may be true.
  • With Home Cures Happy Girl Cup™ you are confident, as there is no risk of any leaks or odours.” – Since everyone is different, you can’t say that there is no risk of leaks or odours.  While both are unlikely (if you’re wearing the right size cup for your body, emptying it before it overflows, you’re cleaning the cup well and don’t happen to have blood that leaves an odour).. it sometimes happens.  It’s especially a big claim for a cup brand that doesn’t give ANY information on the sizing or capacity of their cups, thus making it impossible for customers to be able to determine if the cup would suit their physical needs before actually buying one to try it.
  • Your Happy Girl Cup™ is simply sterilised, and during your periond rinsed, put back in and forgotten.  – You generally are advised not to wear a cup for more than 12 hours (some even recommend emptying it every 6-8 hours), so this advice makes it seem you can just leave it in your whole period – just forgetting about it is a very bad idea!  There is no mention anywhere about not leaving it in for longer than 12 hours or when to empty it.
  • And, being delivered to your door in Eco friendly packing, there is no fancy box to throw away and pollute the environment. It arrives ready to use.” – Well I’m pretty sure the lack of box is due to the fact the cups don’t come with boxes from the manufacturer (or if they do, they are branded as Aneer) and it’s a money saving thing rather than an eco-friendly thing… The photos on Amazon show the cups individually packaged in plastic bags, which I would argue is less environmentally friendly than a cup that is packaged in a biodegradable cardboard box with no plastic packaging.  If they arrive to the customer without that plastic bag, it may have been removed before sending, which then makes it appear to be more eco-friendly than it actually is.  All to justify the supposedly eco-friendly benefits of not bothering to have them packaged in a box.

However, it does also say:

  • your Happy Girl Cup™, which is Guaranteed for 5 years against any manufacturing fault, will almost certainly last you a lifetime” – a 5 year guarantee is great, not many cups have that!

Other Details: Currently available in 3 colors – pink,  purple & blue, with orange and green coming out shortly.  The picture above (from the Amazon listing) has a pearly type look, but I don’t know if that is the actual look of the silicone or just the way it is photographed.

blossom_clear2They were running a giveaway where they were selling the cup for $1 each to people (US only) in return for an “honest review” on Amazon.  So there should be a lot of reviews available on Amazon once the people have received them.  

The shape/design of the cup looks very similar to cups being sold as the Aneer, Cup’ax and Dutchess cups.  See Similar/rebranded cups.  Promotional images looks very similar to these cups being sold in bulk.

Their website claims the cup is FDA approved (which is false), and that it is made from FDA approved medical grade silicone.fda_blossom

Yet their Amazon listing says the cup is made from Food-Grade silicone:

Cup Brands By Style

I thought it might be convenient to people if I had a list of all the cup brands by the style/shape/stem.  To make it easier to compare and find brands by their type.

I will link the brands to the page of information I have on them, rather than to their official websites, as some of the cups don’t have official websites.

Ball Stem Cups

LunaCup

.

Flat Tab Stem Cups

These stems are flat, long and narrow.  See also Similar and Rebranded cups.

Melodysusie

* These cups appear to be the same or very similar design.
^ These cups appear to be very similar (if not the same) design.

.

Flat Wide Stem Cups

These stems are flat and wider than the “flat tab” stem.  They can be short or long.

flatwidestem3

* These cups appear to be very similar to each other, and may be “copies” or rebranding of the same cup.

.

Hollow Tube Stem Cups

These cups have a stem that is a hollow tube. Some have a thicker wall (smaller opening) than others, some have longer or shorter stems.

misscup

* These cups appear to be the same design just given different names.

Long Thick Stem Cups

MeLuna_stem

These stems are the same sort of shape as the “hollow tube” stem, but are solid.

* These cups are manufactured by the same company but called different names for some reason

.

Long Thin Stem Cups

These stems are long and thin.  With or without grip lines/bumps.

JuJu

* All these cups appear to be very similar.  I have heard that Si-Bell sold their design to other manufacturers, so these appear to be all from that same design.  Liberty and Natu both have “natu” embossed into the cup and have a slightly different stem design than the others.

.

Ring Stem Cups

These stems have a “ring” or “loop” type of design.

MeLuna_ring2

.

Short Thick Stem Cups

These stems are short and thick.  Either solid or hollow.

stem-shortthick

* All these cups appear to be the same design.

.

Short Thin Stem Cups

stem_shortthin

Jasmine Cup

jasmine

Official website (jasminecup.com) has been unavailable for several years.  Seems to have only been available on places like ebay.

Country of origin: China?
Composition: Silicone
Sizes:  “1” (small), “2” (large)
Dimensions:  Some debate on the sizing, since the official measurements the company gave were not what users measured it at.
Capacity: unknown
Stem: Flat Tab
Measuring Lines: 7.5 and 15ml on the inside.
Been around since: 2012?
Other Details: According to the Live Journal post, ‘Jasmine Cup’ and ‘Made in Canada’ are written in small, raised letters on the inside rim.  This cup was reportedly like a cross between a Diva and a Lunette.  http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/3015476.html

Currently (Jan 2015) there is a listing on http://www.weiku.com for a cup they call a “W menstrual Cup” which shows the Jasmine Cup box with “Rockbrook” watermark – though says it comes in pink and shows one of the current generation pink generic boxed menstrual cups.  That listing is by the Rockbrook company (who also produces the iCare cups as well as other cups and a softcup ripoff).  So I wonder if the old Jasmine Cups are being sold now as “iCare”?
