The cup is super nice but it did leak when it was full or if you squeeze any muscle to hard down there lol.
Great! I lost my first one and got this one… I love it
I have a high cervix and a relatively heavy flow. I first tried the AllMatters size A, but turned out it wasn't for me. Turns out my walls are small, so I went for the size Mini (pictured). Works like a charm. Collects every drop of blood.
There's definitely a learning curve involved. Taking the cup out of me is a challenge since I have a high cervix and this is a small cup. So my hands and thighs can get messy. Thankfully, I come from a country and culture that normalizes bidets/jet washers near every toilet.
Leakage happened only once, which was when I woke up from bed with the cup on and stained on my bed. For that, I made an investment in period panties. With that and discarding my blood more frequently, my heavy flows are much more manageable.
I don't think I'll switch to a different brand of cup. And I don't want to resort back to the traditional sanitary pads. What I enjoy most about menstrual cups is that they don't release any bad smells. I also love AllMatters and their philosophy of making small actions that lead to big change.
It was uncomfortable and it gave me bad cramps.
Quite comfortable. I have a short vag and wanted a small soft cup to start with. Definitely comfortable, but I think my heavy flow was too much for it. Sometimes it kept everything clean and sometimes let a bit through; coupled with period undies it's okay but I was hoping for being able to wear regular underwear. Going to try a slightly larger cup. Note - if you push it up too far it might get hard to pull out! Keep that in mind with these very short cups.
Perfect for if you have a low-key cervix. I found that other longer and narrower cups were uncomfortable but this one is short and stout and sits comfortably. Nice price too. Bought both sizes A and B the first time, and ended up using both for a year. Now I'm back, buying just size B for another long while. Definitely recommend!!!
Satisfied with the entire product. I highly recommend.
I love it! Its super small and super easy to put in/ take out
This cup has literally changed my life. I have used it for two cycles so far and I am never going back. It is so convenient as I only have to empty it in the morning and before I go to bed even on my heaviest days. There was a little bit of a learning curve but I really got the hang of it after the first time putting it in and taking it out. It is so comfortable and so far I have not had any leaks. I don't think I have gotten a good night's sleep on my period for the past 11 years for fear of leaking until now. I am very active and doing hard workouts at least 6 days a week. This cup has held up through being thrown and hit in kickboxing sparring rounds, sprinting, weightlifting, and kickboxing. Overall I am very impressed and only wish I had switched sooner!
This cup is a real game changer!!
I switched from the Diva C to this brand,and I have to say that it was the best decision I could make, since it's soft and comfortable to wear, it doesn't feels like it's pressing my bladder and I really love that it's very easy to handle the folds while inserting.
It took me a while to knack popping it,but it's worth the learning curve. For me this is the best cup I've tried so far.
Sad phat high cervix H.
My first cup was the flex cup. Which i had a murder happen in my pants. Then i bought the diva cup. My aunt sent me the organicup..... my menstrual cup journey has been a thriller. A thriller i say cuz its not an absolute horror. Although i feel horrible that I am 25 and still have not reached period nervana..... idk if my cervix is high but i use the size b and i still leak.
It makes me want to cry. Ive been using cups for a year now. I still cannot get it down. I still choose to use them but i put on a panty liner. I must prevail.
It really aggravates me that these companies want to claim its leak free when thats absolutely wrong.
I havent had a kid, my period is heavy to normal. And i selected the biggest cup option available to me.
Once i went to the doc and she said my insides were titled. Idk wtf that means. So i wonder if that is what the problem is?
Nonetheless im glad i found this site because I'm able to see all the different brands and different sizes of cups. Organicup i would suggest making a C cup for big hoohas.
Bought mine at the local pharmacy in size mini- Im currently writing this on my first day of using it and WAOW. I really love it. Had a little leak about 3-4 hours after the first time i put it in, but i think i just need some practice. It was super easy using the punch-down method. Didnt have any pain and the first time taking it out went superwell with the wiggle-method until i could reach it, then broke the seal and out it went putting it in the second time went much more smooth than the first. If you have been considering buying a cup all i can say is DO IT!!!
I've had this cup for 3 months and this month was my first period where I haven't created any waste! I took me a little while to be able to use my cup regularly but once I figured it out I've had the easiest, most comfortable period experience yet.
I purchased a size A cup and it was shipped quickly and came with tracking. I suggest you really master your folding technique and insertion was actually easy. Prior to removal push one or both of the side of the cups inwards _do_not_ pull out using just the stem. I know this is a strange analogy but it's a bit like a toilet plunger in that it uses suction shape to seal it in place and it completely prevents leakage. I tried it on for almost 6 hours at home on a heavy day. No leakage. If I was wearing a "Super" tampon on a heavy day I would have changed my tampon 2-3 times. Overall I am very impressed by the comfort level but I want users to really figure out a technique that works for them and not give up.
Amazing! I switched from pads to menstrual cups because I was tired of the diaper-esque feeling I got from wearing pads. I have a heavier than average period so it was a nightmare to have to rush to the bathroom in between classes just to change my pad in a public bathroom with 0 privacy. This cup is so much easier and even though at first it took some practice to insert it and remove it easily, it was completely worth it. Just keep in mind, if you have a smaller vaginal opening it might be tricky to remove it since I’ve found that just pinching the bottom is ineffective when it comes to removal. You have to run your finger along the cup and press on the cup to release the suction. However once you get the hang of it, it takes no time at all. I highly recommend this cup for anyone tired of changing tampons/pads constantly who just wants the ease of “put it and forget it”.
This was the first time that I’ve used a diva cup and it was a bit complex at first but then you get the hang of it. Also, Period shop usan amazing company who communicates with their costumers about issues.
I thought I was done with menstrual cups because every one that I bought has been too big or too hard. I know my body quite well and I noticed the cups made my cramps worse so I was not a fan. They also made it hard to use the restroom. This is a game changer! Especially if you're a first time cup user. It is much softer, and the mini size is really that, mini! It was perfect, not difficult to insert, couldn't feel it in me, I could use the restroom fairly easily as long as I'm not too constipated, and best of all: no cramps!!
I was really nervous about trying the cup because I thought there would be pain or discomfort. But actually it wasn't too bad. I fold the cup into a 'C' then fold it again. I insert it as far up as I can, and squeeze the base of the cup to prompt it to open. I recommend pushing it out cuz otherwise you'll get a suction effect and then it gets uncomfortable. But it's easily avoidable. I got the hang of it by the second day using it. Highly recommend!
The best period experience ever!
I recommend trying the different folding methods to find your perfect fit. It took me a few tries to find the most comfortable one.
Definitely worth the purchase, and helping the environment is a must for me!
Nothing short of magic. I will never go back to disposables. I used my cup for 5 years and the pull tab has now torn so i’m getting a new one. Honestly so impressed and happy to buy again.

I’ve been trying to switch to cups for about 6 months but nothing was working for me with the first cup I purchased (Vera cup) but then I took the quiz at PN and read a lot of tips by Kim. I think organicup mini is the perfect cup for first time users that haven’t experienced using anything but pads. It’s so cute and small. And the package is awesome. Had some trouble inserting it for the first time but after a few tries I managed to do it. My tips is to just try it on your own time... if you can’t do it on your first time just give it another try tomorrow or whenever you feel that you want to do it/are ready. Don’t force it. :)
Love it. I'm a small woman at 4'10 and I find most cups are a bit too big to be comfortable. The mini is very easy to use and holds enough that I don't have to empty it more than twice a day. Will be using for many years to come!
I really like it, a little hard to pull out but I love that I don't feel it during the day.
