Menstrual Cups

Aneer

aneer-340x340

There are various cups being sold with an “Aneer” box, so there isn’t really an “Aneer” brand of cup as such – Basically “Aneer” is a name on a box, and the cups sold with it can be one of many different designs.  So I’m wondering if either the “Aneer” boxes are being sold in bulk to anyone, or if the Aneer company are just many any old cup they feel like?

 .

Flat tab stem cups

The first “Aneer” brand cups were a tab stem cup, A Lunette-Diva sort of hybrid, with a very “shiny” look to the silicone.  Measurements are reportedly 43mm Diameter, 50mm length & 46mm Diameter , 50mm length.  Found on AliExpress. Youtube video on an unboxing. Seems to be the same as a bunch of other cups.

.

Short stick stem with lines around rim

aneer-femma1 aneer4

More frosted look, with a different ridge area with lines…. Several examples can be found on AliExpress, Another listing.  The same design of cup is also being sold as a Cup’ax, Dutchess, Blossom Cup and Charlene.  As well as Femma’s and Sure Cycle who still show the “Aneer” box despite calling the cup something else.

.

Thick Short tab stem with grid grip base

aneer2  aneer2c

Aneer box being shown with different cups again, that have a thicker stem with well defined grip lines on the base and stem.  Same design as Eva Cup.  Found on AliExpress.

 Flat Wide tab stem

There’s also a listing for an Aneer box with a wide tabbed stem cup photoshopped in, and a listing that shows what appears to be a Femmecup in one photo with an Aneer Box in another photo. Listing with wide stem | Listing showing Femmecup

Review: https://menstrualcups.wordpress.com/2010/08/07/mpower-photos-observations
Other Details: In an e-mail from the company they told me: “I specifically chose a non-coloured silicone for my MPowercup as my pharmaceutical grade manufacturer advised against a colour. Colour silicone is readily available but he would not 100% guarantee it for this particular application. I did not want to take a chance so went with clear as in catheter tubing and ICU tubing etc is also clear.”.  They also are running a program to give the Mpower cups to impoverished women in South Africa.

As of July 2010 – Due to a possible design conflict with Lunette, the MPower is apparently going to be redesigned.
