Eva

I have no details on this cup yet, other than it is made in Italy.  The stem appears to be a hollow tube with very pronounced grip lines.

Easy Life (Skynector)

http://www.skynector.com/en/products-look.aspx?id=116

This is a valve stem cup, although I’m unsure exactly how it works.  I assume it has a ball inside the stem that blocks off the stem to hold the blood in the cup, and the ball would be slid down into the bulb on the base of the stem to allow the blood to drain through the small holes on the side of the bottom of the stem.

HeaLeanLo

https://healeanlo.en.alibaba.com

They make 3 different designs of cup – 2 are valve stem designs (can be emptied while in place).

(Non-valve design, stem is a mixture of a ball and stick stem)

Small = 65mm long, 42mm diameter.
Large = 67mm long, 45mm diameter,
Capacity = Alibaba listings say 16mls to airholes, 25mls to rim. (unknown which size). AliExpress listing says small = 20mls, Large = 30mls.

(Example AliExpress Listing)


(Valve stem with stopper, opening stopper and squeezing the stem opens the valve to let the contents drain out)

Small = 70mm long without stem (23mm stem), 42mm diameter.
Large = 70mm long without stem (23mm stem), 45mm diameter.
Capacity = Alibaba listings say 25mls (unknown which size). AliExpress listing says small = 20mls, Large = 30mls.

Another listing for the same style cup, but calling it an Aneer brand, lists the diameters as 40mm and 45mm with a 20mm stem, and list the capacity as 28mls for the small and 30mls for the large

— Note, the listing says: “New style drain valve menstrual cup, use until the menstrual is over. you don’t need take it out every few hours,until the menstrual is over,it is very safe and easy to use.”  I assume they mean by this that you can leave it in through your entire period, just emptying it as needed.  THIS IS A VERY BAD IDEA!  Menstrual cups should be worn for no more than 12 hours without being removed, emptied, cleaned and reinserted.

(Example AliExpress Listing)


(Valve stem – squeezing the stem opens the valve to let the contents drain out)

Small = 79mm long including stem (27mm stem), 42mm diameter
Large = 85mm long including stem (30mm stem), 46mm diameter
Capacity = Alibaba listings say 16mls to airholes, 25ml to rim (unknown which size). AliExpress listing says small = 20mls, Large = 30mls.

Unique design?: Yes
Other Details: These cups were first mentioned in my “unnamed discharge cups” post.  There is a video of the operation of the valve stem here.  The cup is emptied while left inserted, by squeezing the stem to open the slit that blocks off the inside of the stem (I have not tried this style of cup to know how efficient this method is, or if it leaks).   Appears to have 2 different kinds of packaging, depending on if you buy the set of 2 or the single cup (both look very unique and elegant)

genti-she_cups

This brand is a little confusing because website talks of their own brand of cup, however the site shows pictures from Lunette, Lady Cup and Mooncup UK, does not show photos of their own cup (however there are photos on their facebook page), and says the cups are manufactured in a Finnish factory (talking of the Lunettes?)

Also the e-mail address listed on their site (orders@gentis.co.za) didn’t work when I tried it, it came back with a domain not found error (The website they reference http://www.gentis.co.za is also not working).   I messaged them via their website to find out what cup they are selling – they did not respond.

Update:  A representative from Genti-She commented (below) to say the website had been hacked.  Which adds to the confusion around this brand and its websites (See post here)

Bassrose

Dilan3

AliExpress search

Country of origin: China
Composition: “Silicone”
Sizes:  1
Dimensions: 70mm Long,  40mm diameter
Capacity:  20mls
Stem: Hollow tube with a ball valve
Measuring Lines: no
Cost (RRP): Unknown (Can buy from around $8 USD)
Been around since: Unknown (2014?)
Unique Design?: Yes (This cup design appears to have been created by this brand but appears to have been rebranded by other brands)
Other Details:  The stem is a hollow tube with an opening on the end – this allows the cup to be emptied while still inserted. A ball acts as a stopper to close the tube while in use, and can be moved further up the stem (into the larger portion) to allow the cup to drain.  I was told that Howard Peng from Honserve Trading developed this cup, and he asked me to only link to his listings.  However there seems to be no listings from that company any more, so I’ll link to an AliExpress search instead.  Also please note that there are a lot of different cups using the “Bassrose” box and name – but the original “Bassrose” cup is this cup design with the ball-valve stem (which was also known briefly as a “Dilan” cup in some AliExpress listings).

The same sort of concept of Victoria Love, but this one has the hole to empty the cup on the bottom of the stem (unlike VL which has the holes on the side of the bottom of the stem).

Victoria Love

victorialove

http://www.victorialove.net

Note – as of Jan 2015 their website is suspended, their facebook page and ebay store are still available.

Country of origin: China
Composition: Silicone
Sizes:  Size “2” (small) and “1” (large)
Dimensions: 2=40mm diameter, 35mm length without stem, 75mm with stem, 40mm stem length. 1 =45mm diameter, 45mm length without stem, 90mm with stem, 45mm stem length.
Capacity: Unknown
Stem: Hollow tube with valve
Measuring Lines: No
Cost (RRP):
Been around since: 2013
Unique Design?: Yes (This cup design appears to have been created by this brand and has not been seen used by other brands)
Other Details:  Has a hollow stem with a valve that allows you to empty the cup (every 4-8 hours is recommended) while it is still in place.   They appear to sell a special steam steriliser as well.  The “discharge points” where the cup can be emptied via the stem, are on the sides of the stem.  So it appears that you’re just relying on the ball being pushed up above the holes and staying there…. or else it would leak when you don’t want it to.  Also menstrual blood is often clotty, so I’m not sure how well this can handle clots.  The video (which is a bit hilarious :P) mentions clots and the fact you can just squeeze them out…. but I’m not sure that would work in practice.  I’d be interested to hear from anyone who has used it.

Facebook Instruction video

viclove-valve

It appears you push the ball into the “discharge valve” spot to seal the stem, then push it down to the end to empty it.

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.

See the statement Femmycycle made about some users experiencing pain from the suction of the Femmycycle.
