Experience

After my inexpensive Amazon silicon cups started to stain, I saw the reusable one at Target and bought on a whim. When I opened the packet, I was a little thrown off by the size. However, it went in smoothly and was easy to pop into place. I didn't not have any leaks or issues throughout the day. In fact, it was more comfortable than my previous cups as there wasn't a chance for it to slide down. I was also able to have period sex which I haven't done in ages and my husband didn't say a thing. Instructions were clear. Removal and cleaning were a breeze too.

I didn't have any luck with the discs, but the cup is great! I didn't expect to be a believer in the cups but got them on a whim at Target and have loved it ever since.

Have been into trying innovative period products for almost 6 years at this point. I remember flex when they first launched and I was excited by their "have sex on your period" claims. Those claims are true but it's not like it has gone completely unnoticed by my partners. As an avid user of the menstrual cup I have certainly grown accustomed to touching my own blood and needing to "get in there" to place and adjust the cup. The flex requires that same willingness to come into contact with your own body but is much easier to insert and remove than a cup. I also appreciate the design of how it sits at the base of your cervix instead of using suction in your vaginal canal. Very innovative and nice to not have to deal with any suction.

- It does leak. I really can't wear it on heavy days. It's best for last few days of a period. - Honestly if you + your partner are trying to get freaky on your period you might as well just put a towel down and roll with it. The flex isn't going to do much for you. - I really wish they made a reusable version the way Nixit has... The whole appeal for me to use a menstrual cup was to decrease my monthly menstrual waste to almost zero...

Tried the disc after being advertised to on Instagram so many times. It was relatively easy to insert and remove.

LEAKS. No matter how I messed with it and read the instructions over and over again, it would always leak. Also not sure about the sustainability of this product, seemed like a lot of plastic & rubber? Wasn't sure this was better in any way compared to traditional period products.

Has no effect 🤷

My friend shared an ad with my on IG about the discs. I wasn’t sure if they were going to work for me but man am I soooo happy I tried them. The discs literally changed my life. I’ve got endo and a really heavy flow. The disc gets me through an entire day without having to change it bc you can wear it for 12 hours. I’ve also figured out how to empty it during the day without taking it out. It’s super cool. My cramps have reduced and I just love not feeling like something is clogging me up during my period. I’m actually upset at myself for not knowing about the discs sooner. It did take me a week to figure it out but their customer service helped me with like standing on my tips toes to remove. Anyway, haven’t looked back and Ive officially said goodbye to tampons and pads forever. Best decision ever. Also I love that they use inclusive language.

I was going to say make a reusable disc, but they just did! Pre-ordered mine already. Glad they switched to eco friendly packaging.
