Everything Needed for a Happy Period! With the purchase of the Venus Cup Starter Kit, you will receive both the small and large Venus Cup, a storage pouch for each cup, and a user manual packed with information to help you along your menstrual cup journey.

The Venus Cup collects the menstrual flow instead of absorbing without interfering with the body’s pH balance or natural processes.

The Venus Cup is made of 100% Medical Grade Silicone and uses Medical Grade Colorants.

The Venus Cup is manufactured in the USA and in an FDA registered facility.

  • Locating and Measuring your cervix is one of the best ways to figure out which size will be both easy and comfortable – click here for more details!
  • You may also choose a size based on your menstrual flow needs.

  • Yes. When the Venus Cup is placed correctly, it is undetectable by you or anyone else. If the stem is visible from the outside of the body, it can be trimmed down for comfort.
  • Since the Venus Cup is reusable, you will not need to carry extra menstrual protection products.
  • The Venus Cup holds much more than a tampon and you may not need to empty it as often.

It should be! If you have any discomfort with it at any time, you may need to try different folding techniques, using a water-based personal lubricant, or changing the size.

The Venus Cup is great for a light flow, heavy flow, very heavy flow, when you’re expecting your period but not bleeding yet, or even just to stay dry from discharge!

The Venus Cup won’t have the familiar odor as a rotting disposable tampon or pad. Depending on your body and blood, the Venus Cup may periodically have an odor more like the smell of “iron”. This can be resolved – check this article for more info.

Like with all menstrual cups, there is a chance of leaking. This is a very common problem among new users. It may take time and practice getting things just right, but there are some things that can be done to minimize this from happening – click here for more info!

Everything under the moon and sun! The Venus Cup will allow you the freedom to carry on with your daily activities whether it be school, work, sports, or sleeping!

There are some things to consider when choosing the correct size for you.

    • Cervical height – Low, Medium, High Cervix
    • Previous experience and comfort level
    • Capacity needs

    These are great! No leaks! I love the smaller cup because the pull tab is longer. The large cup's pull tab is too short, I have a very hard time pulling it out. As the day goes on, the cup seems to slide further in, making it harder to reach the pull tab. I practically have to squat and squeeze and/or cough just to get it down far enough to pull out.

    Hi Crow,

    Thank you for taking a moment to share your experience and feedback while using the Venus Cup Starter Kit. We’re happy to hear that the small has been easy to use. However, we’re sorry that the stem on the larger Venus Cup is harder to reach. Although the overall length of the cups are the same size, they may sit differently while inserted, causing the difficulty. I hope that over time the large becomes easier to use. Please don’t hesitate to contact directly should you ever need support.
    Happy Holidays. Stay well.

    I got my period last week and was skeptical to finally try it. I have used other cups but they always leak or fall into the toilet somehow. The first day with Venus I had some leaks but I knew there's trial and error with them. Omg it was amazing days 2-5. I still had to wear a pad (fibroids, tipped uterus and super heavy flow) but I only had to change it every 3.5hrs the first few days and left it in for up to 8hrs the last 2 days. The pad was not soaked just caught some leaks if the cup became full etc. The suction is unbelievable! I had no cramps either which was a huge plus! P.S. get an autoclave cup steamer. It's additional sterilization at an affordable price.

    *Pro User Tip: The cervix isn't normally located straight up into the vaginal canal, but more slanted to the back (near the rectum). In a squatting position, aim the folded cup down and back towards your tailbone. This will place the cup in a better position near the cervix.

    I held off purchasing a cup for a long time out of nervousness, and eventually caved out of necessity. I was going to be leaving for an extended camping trip and was too afraid of having to work around pads and tampons. I'll be honest, the first couple uses were very frustrating, but after a few months I felt like a pro. This is coming from the girl that waited until her 20s to start using tampons. It saves money, is good for the environment, and is a lot safer for my body. Not to mention, it lasts significantly longer between needing to empty it. I like this particular kit because it gives you one large and one small cup, which works perfectly with heavy and lighter days. I would definitely recommend this.

    *Pro User Tip: A common issue when a cup (any cup) is inserted completely, is that the cervix gets in the way of allowing the rim to fully expand. It can also push the cervix to the side and cause leaking. Wiggle or rock the cup down to let your cervix correct itself before pushing it back into place.

    I like the idea of less waist. For some it may work very well. For me it did not. I had increased cramps and it was pushing on my bladder making it difficult to urinate. But it definitely stayed in place. Super suction, which did make it a little more difficult to remove. This is also not really something I would like to use in a public restroom as it can be messy. I tried it for two cycles. It's not something that is going to work for me.

    Hello,

    Thank you for taking a moment to share your experience with the Venus Cup. I'm sorry to hear that it was not a good option for you. It sounds like you may need a softer cup if you choose to give them another try. Remember that menstrual cups hold more than tampons. For many, even with a heavy flow, this eliminates the need to empty the cup but morning and evening.
    I hope that you can find an eco-friendly period product even if it's not the Venus Cup.

    Cheers,

    This is a fabulous cup set. I have the Saalt Soft to compare it to, and the Venus cups are comparably soft, yet its shape gives it a little bit of firmness. The Venus is my go-to cup for yoga and working out bc it doesn't leak like my other cups do. I'm glad I bought it bc both sizes hold more capacity than other brands. The small is a perfect size between my Saalt small and the large one, yet it holds volume quite comparable to the large Saalt. The venus cups are comfortable and their shape grants them greater suction than my other bell shape cups. Their texture is very high quality and its a great duo at a great price. The large Venus holds almost 50mL and its huge capacity works great for my super heavy flow days that no other cup can handle. However, I currently use it mostly at night, bc due to my med-low cervix and sedentary lifestyle my pelvic floor had dropped to its lowest and its a bit big on me. (Nothing that can not be fixed with kegels and yoga, bc when I exercise my pelvic floor, the large Venus fits perfectly!). This is without a doubt THE CUP to consider if you are heavy flower, high cervix or are in a budget! (Just make sure you check your cervix and that it would fit😉). Customer service is also superb, reaching out multiple times to ensure I know how to use it. Ive never seen this before attention to customers before.

    Reply from Venus Cup Team:
    Hello Linda,

    I'm sorry that you did not have a pleasant experience while using either size of the Venus Cup. Menstrual Cups are not a "one size fits all" type of product, just as we all have different body types. Many users with Endometriosis have been successful in using the Venus Cup and find that it relieves them of heavy bleeding for several hours compared to tampons or pads. However, not everyone will find it equally easy or comfortable depending on their cervical height. Knowing the location of your cervix can help you find a cup that will be more suited to your anatomy.
    I hope that you decide to try another cup in the future even if it's not the Venus Cup.

    Best wishes. Stay well.

    I have used 4-5 different brand cups, but this is the most uncomfortable/difficult cup. It pushes on your bladder and the customer service is non-existent.Pros:-the suction is very strong-it's on the harder sideCons:It does not move as freely(?) as other cups to adjust to your cervix. I have found that some cups will find it's position (for maximum comfort) on its own once they're correctly inserted. But this one, you will have to move around to find the most comfortable position. (If used cups before, I hope this makes sense to you.)So this can lead to it pushing your bladder.-not for people with high cervixAnyway, I have reached out to the customer service, but they didn't respond. So if you're someone who is looking to buy a cup for the first time, who had high cervix, or who is looking for a cup that's more comfortable and easy to pull out, I would buy something else.
    Reply from Venus Cup Team:
    Hello ALLisWell,

    I'm sorry to hear that you had such an unpleasant experience while using the Venus Cup Start Kit. I am also very sad that we failed to provide you with excellent customer service. I reply to every troubleshooting correspondence myself, and I don't recall receiving any inquiries about these specific issues through any of our media.
    As you know, our bodies are all made differently. The same goes for each menstrual cup. As you have the starter kit, did the smaller, narrower size also press on your bladder? Usually, a smaller cup will relieve this issue.

    Seal and suction are two things that differ from one person to the next. I'm sorry that the Venus Cup created such a strong suction for your anatomy.

    Although we chose a medium firmness (comparable to the Diva Cup), everyone has a different degree of what soft and firm are. Some individuals will find the Venus Cup to be too soft, others find it too firm, and many will find it just right.

    If a menstrual cup is positioned correctly, it should not move freely. That is a potential for leaks. Choosing the correct shape and size for your body will put a cup in the optimal position and will not need to adjust. However, a shorter cup will move up closer to your cervix because the vaginal canal will allow for it. For a user with a low cervix, a short cup will be more comfortable.
    If you have a high cervix and a short cup, it may be difficult to remove, as well as allow your cervix to sit deep into the cup and take up the capacity.
    A longer cup (like the large Venus Cup), will have the length, is not likely to move up too high, and can be reached easily.

    Since you have tried 4-5 different brands, you know that menstrual cups are not a "one size fits all" type of product. I'm just sorry that the Venus Cup wasn't the one for you.
    Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I hope that one of the other 4-5 cups works better for you.

    Best wishes.

    I've been on the search for my "goldilocks cup" for a while now. First I tried the Diva cup. I was able to insert it correctly, it opened nicely and stayed in place. The caveat? I could NOT get this thing out of my body. I know there are learning curves with the cup and I gave this cup a couple cycles but I just couldn't do it anymore. I had to turn up the A/C and plan on a solid 15 minutes of squirming/panicking/sweating just trying to get this thing out of my body. This is the point I realized I have a high cervix and I should try a cup that a little longer/easier for me to remove.In comes the Lily cup. It was extra long and made of super soft squishy silicone. I had no problem inserting or removing, however, I found out with this cup I had a LOT of issues with leaking or ineffectiveness all together. I soon came to realize no matter how I folded it or inserted it, the cup was too soft and flexible for my body. Turns out my vaginal canal is also extremely narrow and this cup was never actually opening all the way to create proper suction! It was like my vagina was just crushing and squeezing it!This is the point I realized I need a cup that's long enough for my high cervix but ridgid enough to actually unfold like it should in my body. Enter the Venus cup. I fricken LOVE this thing. It's firm enough that it actually opens up inside of me and stays put and it has an extra long and grippy stem that makes removal way easier. I've found the perfect cup for me. I no longer feel insecure about wearing a cup, and this thing is sooo much more comfortable for me than tampons or past cups I've tried. I got the starter kit, because I wasn't sure exactly which size I should go with. I'm 32 with no kids and I tried both sizes and ended up using the smaller size.TLDR: Ladies, if you've got a high cervix and issues with the cup actually unfolding correctly, give this one a try. It could be the perfit fit for you!

    Reading what you had to go through to remove one cup and having the next stay crushed, sounds frustrating! I can see why you would be on the search for another. We're honored that you took a chance with the Venus Cups.
    We're happy to hear that the small Venus Cup was everything that you needed it to be and that you shared that even though it is the smaller and shorter cup, it still worked for your high cervix.
    We hope that the larger Venus Cup will also be of some use to you should your periods become heavier.
    It sounds like you have everything under control, but please don't forget that we're here if you need us.

    Cheers to easy & comfortable period protection!

    These are the cups of my dreams! They're comfortable and easy to insert/remove, and the large one holds so much! I have a heavy flow, and have never filled it! It's what freedom looks like. My diva cup, I would have to change it all the time, and this one, only twice a day! No more worrying about having to change it in public restrooms. I can't feel it either. Ladies, do yourself a solid.I can't believe I didn't order this years ago. I had no idea what I was missing. Diva is so much firmer. I thought that was a good thing until I tried these. They hold just as well, but insert and open so much easier and less painfully. Sometimes my Diva would leak from not opening all the way. Not often, but sometimes, even though I've used it for years. Not a problem with these, and they're so much softer. I thought the larger one might be harder to insert, but it's not. I just use a u-fold and it's perfect.

    Hello Kathleen,

    I'm sorry to hear that your teen had some issues learning how to use either size of the Venus Cup. There is a learning curve and it will take some practice. If your teen is willing to try again, some water-based lubricant may be very helpful. The user manual was tailored with new users in mind, so have them browse through that as well. If all else fails, we're here for one on one support. Just contact us directly and we would be happy to work through any issues.
    In the end, if your teen is not comfortable with using the Venus Cup, we understand. Menstrual cups are not a "one fits all" type of item and it just may not be the cup or menstrual product for them.

    Best wishes to you both.

    I’m not a person to leave reviews once something arrives in the mail, I like to try it first so I can give the most honest review possible.-Simply put, Venus got it right.-I bought the combo pack and have used it two months now. I have a very heavy flow so the volume capacity was a plus for me. I do have to change it throughout the day but I can go longer periods (no pun intended) than I can with the Diva Cup which holds a fair amount.-I put side by side pictures of the Venus cups with my Diva Cup and Lunette.One of the things that I LOVE, is the purple color. I feel like my Lunette changed colors after one cycle and no matter what I did the color was forever changed, with the Venus cups being purple that’s an ugly thing of the past.-Two cups with one purchase? One for heavier days and one for lighter days? One to give to a friend? Whatever, it was like buying a mixed assortment box of tampons, I felt like I hit the jackpot!-I see some people saying that they can feel it, using this cup didn’t seem like much of a learning curve to me because I’ve been using menstrual cups for about a decade now, you just have to insert in a way that’s comfortable for you and adjust as needed. I’ve never noticed it was in at all. Also, you get a smaller cup with your purchase, figure that one out then move on up if you’re having problems. Removal is a bit tricky because the cups are shaped differently than most but then again not all menstrual cups are the same, the stem is easy to grip and long enough that you can pull down softly and break the suction.-I LOVE everything about these Venus cups:— They fit in the Pixie Cup UV sterilizer, both can fit in the Mr. A (that’s the brand, the steam sterilizers that I’ve seenon Amazon are generic and look the same with different brand names, so I can say with a 99% certainty OR MORE that at least one will fit all) sterilizer at once!— They have great capacity whether you’re on light or heavy days.— They’re comfortable.— The packaging is amazing, it made me want to try the cups even more: two cups, two bags, a cute box! I have never been so excited about my period.— Still no staining.— No leaks.-If you need a cup, go Venus, then tell your girlfriends so they can enjoy a great cup too!

    First of all, I did not order the starter set, only the Large size. After trying another brand somewhat unsuccessfully, and consequently learning that I have a heavier flow, and needed much larger capacity, I found Venus cup. Comparing it on paper to Super Jennie, the Venus is a smidge larger in its measurements. I was happy to see the affordable price, knowing if it didn't work well, or if I never got fully comfortable with using a cup, I wouldn't lose too much money.As other reviewers have noted, the packaging, booklet, and bag are all high quality. It did not appear to be a cheap knockoff of anything. Upon first look, I immediately thought, "Whoa, that's kinda big." LOL. But then I noticed the pretty embossing at the base for grip; which is definitely needed and hugely appreciated.After getting placement correctly (mind you, I was a novice to begin with), I couldn't believe it was so comfortable, especially given the size. It was also better with its stem. (The other cup I had tried had more of a flat tab as a stem, but I frequently felt it and didn't care for it.)Fast forward to one year later, and I use the Venus exclusively. My takeaways for this cup are that it is totally possible to have a heavy flow and use a cup. On day 2, which is usually the heaviest, I still need to empty around 4 hours. BUT, I've not had a nighttime leaking issue with it. Also, using a cup has made periods much more tolerable. I love how I can go for hours upon hours with not having to worry (as the week progresses). I still use liners sometimes, just in case, but they are rarely needed. My next step is trying period underwear to bridge the gap.As any other cup user will testify, you get to know your body better, by having more accurate knowledge of your flow. Tampons and pads disguise the true amount. Also, wearing a cup doesn't dry you out painfully like a tampon does. And I for one, was surprised that there is no odor. So a year in, and my trusty Venus is showing some discoloration, but I have done Hydrogen Peroxide soaks before, and it's good as new.I am never going back to tampons because of the Venus cup.

    I totally don’t feel that this product is of bad quality or anything like that. But I do just have to speak to how it doesn’t fit my body. I think my cervix might sit a little high, and because of the wider base it gets stuck behind my pubic bone. I’m an experienced cup user and just wanted to try something that holds more than a Diva Cup. And while the larger cup definitely does fit more and is great for a heavy bleeder, I cannot get this thing out of my body to save my life. It also has no ribbing to grip onto at the bottom which makes it harder. I tried it for 3 cycles and now it’s time to give up.I only leave this review for those of you who might be worried about the same things. If you’re the type that needs to use their pointer finger and middle finger to retrieve your cup, this might be a tough one! But it is generally a great product.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback and experience while using the Venus Cups. I'm sorry to hear that they were not a good fit for your anatomy. Cups are definitely not a 'one size fits all' product and we're just sorry that it wasn't the right one for you.

    I’ve been using the cup for about 3 to 4 periods now (maybe more) and as a woman with a heavier flow the large cup came threw! I definitely notice a difference with how much longer I can go between emptying my cup. The first 3 days of my cycle is the worst and heaviest! After that I can keep my cup in all day without a worry. I do still use a panty liner the first 3 days because I do leak sometimes. The only thing that gets annoying is that it’s a bigger cup so it’s a little painful inserting and removing it and sometimes if I don’t place it correctly I can feel it. The smaller cup I use on my lighter days and have no issues there. I totally recommend! Also now that I no longer use tampons my girl is a lot more wet when it come to arousal and sex. After having 3 babies I thought that was the reason I was dry. But turns out it was my tampons messing with my PH and normal fluids. I don’t know if anyone else has experience this. But I just thought I would mention it.
    Reply from Venus Cup Team:
    Thank you for taking the time to share your detailed feedback. I'm happy to hear that the large Venus Cup can hold up to your heavy days. I understand that the amount of menstrual flow on those days can be uncertain, but if you're experiencing small leaks, try cleaning up any excess blood after the cup is inserted. Sometimes spotting is just caused by that and not overflow from the cup. That is unless you are overflowing by having a heavy flow. In that case, the only suggestion I can make is to empty the cup more often.
    I'm also happy to hear that all of your natural lubricants are no longer being absorbed away by tampons. What a difference a cup can make!

    I wanted to use this product a few times before I gave it a review, and I must say after some troubleshooting I’m impressed. I purchased the kit, and although I’ve tried two other brands of menstrual cups in the past, this is by far my favorite. Details omitted, I’ll say that the capacity of the larger cup allows me to sleep through the night or get through the day without worry. The The smaller size is perfect for lighter days. If you’re on the go, you can carry them both & switch if necessary. I like the fact that you get two for the price of one and that you can have a perfectly sustainable no waste cycle. I’ve already suggested this product to my family members because it’s just that life changing.

    I thought I would need the large cup (I'm 50 and heavy flow). I ended up using the small one - the large did NOT fit. So great to have both sizes! This was my first try with these and, after research and many YouTube videos, I found it easy! Granted, I'm used to applicator-less tampons and am completely un-squeamish about my body and its "inconvenient" moments😂 I will probably move to something with a stiffer material, though. This one is pretty soft and hard for me to get unfurled.

    I appreciate that you took a few moments to share your experience with the Venus Cup Starter Kit. Thank you for pointing out that even though you are over a certain age in which most cup companies would suggest the large size, that the smaller size was actually the better option for you. I'm happy that at least one of them was comfortable.
    Tip: If you're having some trouble getting the Venus Cup to open, try only inserting it halfway before releasing the fold. Sometimes the cervix gets it the way of the rim expanding.

    The capacity of the large is great, a little softer than I expected but still opens ok. Unfortunately the smaller one is unfinished and has excess material so I won't be using it (as I'm not sure if it will be safe/ comfortable) but it seems a little firmer than the large one. I would definitely recommend the large Venus cup if you have a heavy flow and don't want to empty your cup every 3-4 hours . love it!

    Cheers to leak-free, high capacity cups!

    Best wishes. Stay well.

    This is my first time using a period cup. I did browse a few before I decided on this one and overall I am very happy with it! I do not have anything to compare to but I would still highly recommend this cup! I got the both small and large cause I honestly wasn’t sure which size. I have been using the large cup and on my heaviest Period days I empty it 3-4 times but Part of that was also just checking to see how full it was. After using I can now tell when the cup is full. My first uses I did use a pad also with it because I honestly wasn’t sure if I had the cup in right. But now after using I don’t feel the need to use a pad with it. It sure is a learning curve but it’s 100% worth it to not have to use pads or tampons anymore!!! I highly recommend this cup!!

    I'm a first time cup user. after reading reviews, I was terrified that I was never going to get this right. no problems with insertion whatsoever. changing it is another art form to learn, but after spending so much money on thinx underwear and other products, this was a dream come true. no more pads with fears of leaks on heavy days. the large worked perfectly for roughly 10 hours on my heaviest days. I'm so thankful that this product exists! small on left and large on right in picture.

    Hi Kimberly,

    Thank you for taking a chance on the Venus Cup Starter Kit even though you had doubts about using it. I'm happy that you didn't have any trouble getting it inserted and that you stuck through the learning curve while removing it as well. I'm also pleased to hear that it provided you with protection for almost the full twelve hours during your heaviest days.
    Thank you for sharing your experience!

    It’s fantastic. The cups are very made. The don’t flip around, don’t leak. The small size is easy to insert and holds plenty, while the big one can hold enough for 12 hours on my heaviest days. Made in U.S. Great booklet with clear information for beginners, and tips even for the experienced users. Individual cotton pouches for each cup. Very reasonably priced. I can’t think of a single cons!

    I've been using menstrual cups for years, but they were always too small on my heavy days. I had to empty my old cups (lunette and blossom) every 2 hours on heavy days, and even then they'd still leak. They worked perfectly fine on lighter days, so I sucked it up and also used a pad on heavy days to catch overflow. While this was workable for me, I really wanted to be pad free my entire period, so looked for some larger cups. The large Venus cup's capacity seemed promising, and it certainly delivered!When I first saw the cup, I was really intimidated by the size, because there's no way it would be comfortable right?! But actually, getting it in was no more difficult than my other cups, and I couldn't feel it at all once it was inside. I was able to leave it in OVERNIGHT on my heaviest days and only have light spotting! It had definitely overflowed (it was a mess taking it out lol), but the suction on this thing was so strong that it kept everything inside until I took it out.While the cup works extremely well, it isn't so ideal for me during the day because I CAN'T pee with it in...I'm not sure if its the firmness, size, or shape, but literally can't pee without taking it out. It's strange though, because I can't feel it applying pressure on my bladder or anywhere. Having to take it out to pee kind of defeats the purpose of a high capacity cup that I don't have to empty so often, so unfortunately this isn't the perfect cup for me.I'm still on the look out for that perfect cup, but in the meantime, the Venus cup does a great job and I'll continue to use it.

    Hello Rachel,

    Thank you for sharing some very great details about your experience with the Venus Cup Start Kit. I'm happy to hear that it was easy to use, comfortable to wear, and had the capacity that you were hoping for. However, not being able to use the toilet while the cup is in use is a big challenge!
    To be honest, this is a new one for me. I have heard of users feeling the extra pressure and having a slower urine stream, but never someone who couldn't 'perform' at all. I totally understand how this might not be the cup for you!
    If you're willing to try and can reach the large cup without a stem, turn it inside out and see if that doesn't give you relief. It's safe to use this way if it works, or at least will provide you with period protection until you find something that does.
    Please don't hesitate to contact us directly should you require one on one support. We're here for you.

    Stay well.

    I struggled with the Diva cup (both sizes) on and off for several years. The cups were personally too hard for me and would migrate so high up I had an extremely hard time removing the cup. Not to mention that the rims seemed to push on my bladder and no matter how small I'd try to squish the cup on removal, it was painful!Fast forward to quarantine and I decided to give menstrual cups a try again. I did a ton of research and while the quiz on the Put a Cup In It website suggested the Lily cup for my high cervix (which I didn't realize was a thing until I found that website!) the Lily cup sadly ended up being just too soft and getting a good seal every single time is difficult. (Though when I did manage to get a good seal the Lily cup was great!)Since the Lily cup experience was so-so for me I kept searching and that's when I found the Venus cup on Menstrual cup previews website and decided to try the starter kit as the price was perfect for both sizes.I love it!I haven't tried the small size as my flow this month was super heavy. At first I was leery by how big the large appears but once I get it in and into the right place it fits perfectly. Weird thing about it though is for every other cup I've tried I always use the 'Punch Down' fold. However, for me and the large Venus cup, the only fold that works is the 'C' fold. Go figure!? I don't always feel or hear the pop of the cup opening but this cup was easier for me to nudge back and forth and up and down and every time I gave it a chance it did open up properly and make a seal for me with not much extra effort or having to remove it and try again.Also I was leery about the big round base of it and expected it to push on my bladder or feel uncomfortable. It's not the case! It's also not difficult for me to grab the base of and break the seal. With my high cervix this cup, because of its size, doesn't travel so far up that it's difficult to get out. I don't trim the stem at all and can find the cup easily (REMEMBER NEVER PULL THE CUP OUT BY THE STEM! IT'S JUST TO HELP YOU FIND THE CUP TO REMOVE AND ALSO SHIFT THE CUP INTO PLACE AFTER INSERTING!)The rim is much softer on this cup than the Diva's and though the Venus is larger, it is not near as painful to remove as the whole cup itself is a bit softer in feel than the Diva (though nowhere near as soft as the Lily cup)I'm still learning this whole process but I have to say that 9 out of 10 times I have gotten the Venus large in, opened properly, gotten a good seal and had no leaks! It holds a lot and it great for us super heavy flow ladies.I'm very glad I tried this cup and I think it may definitely be the one!Every woman's body is different and what works for me may not work for you but if any of the issues I've mentioned or comparisons to other cups sound similar to you then this cup might be the ticket for you as well.Also as a side note, after purchasing the cup I got 2 separate emails from the Venus cup company through Amazon, one with a separate .pdf of the instruction manual (which by the way is the best I have seen for ANY cup! It's full of great info!) and the second email was just reaching out to make sure everything was okay and seeing if I was happy with the cup/had any questions.While most of the time I get a bit annoyed by this kind of email, I found this really nice of the company to do. Especially in making sure I had an extra manual! You rarely get that sort of extra treatment and I appreciated their effort.

    Hello Januel,

    O.M.Goodness! I can't thank you enough for all of the wonderful detailed information and experience that you shared while using the Venus Cup Starter Kit (even if you haven't tried the small size yet).
    I appreciate all of the comparison information that you included, as well. It can be very helpful for other users to hear about since those are two very popular cups for individuals with a high cervix.

    We're happy that you didn't give up on cups after your other attempts and hope that the Venus Cup can provide you with the protection that you were hoping for all along.

    We understand that using a cup can be tricky. So, although we try not to send spam mail we want our users to know that we're here for support. Just contact us directly at any time for one on one assistance.
    Cheers to high capacity and no leaks!

    Super easy to use once u get the hang of it. Have used mine for 3 cycles now and it's easy. Messy when it's full. The large doesnt even hold my flow for 6 hours overnight, but I'm extremely heavy after my last baby. Once that heaviest day is over, they work okay. Still have to empty it more often than I'd hoped, but still way better than 100 super plus tampons a day. I highly recommend this product, and no I'm not getting paid lol yes, I bought these on my own.

    Hi Jess,

    Thank you for taking a moment to share your experience with the Venus Cup Starter Kit. We're happy to hear that you were able to work out the kinks and get through the learning curve so quickly. However, I'm sorry that even the large still doesn't hold you over for the night. Your periods sound extremely heavy. If you're not breastfeeding, I would suggest asking your doctor if it would be safe for you to take some herbal supplements (even tea) that might help with excessive menstrual bleeding. I too suffered from extremely heavy periods and found some relief. I'm not a physician, so please ask one if it's something you think might benefit you.
    Anyhow, I'm still happy that you were able to replace hundreds of thousand tampons with two Venus Cups. Please feel free to contact me directly now or in the future should you need any support. I'm here for you.

    Cheers to a little more sleep time!

    These cups are ok overall. All though they didn't work the best for me, I'm sure they are perfect for others. I found both cups to be on the rather small side, and did actually cause a little discomfort. Again just because the size and shape didn't work for me, doesn't mean they are not good. Both cups are made of good quality silicone and I will use them on my lighter days

    Hello Donna,

    Thank you for taking a moment to leave feedback on your experience with the Venus Cup Starter Kit. I'm sorry that they seemed too small and that they caused some discomfort.
    However, I would like to thank you for pointing out that just because they didn't work for you, doesn't mean that they won't work for the next person. We're all different and it's important for people to know that one size does not work for all. We appreciate that, and you, and hope that you find another cup that feels and works better for you even if it isn't the Venus Cup.

    So, I've been using menstrual cups for almost a year now and was wanting a cup with a larger capacity. I got the dual pack and am currently using the smaller size and I love it. The cup isn't too firm and it isn't extremely soft, it opens very easy, insertion is easy, and I don't have to change it as often as my other brand cup.I was wanting a larger capacity cup and you really can't beat the Venus, it's cheaper and holds just as much as other higher capacity cups and I love that because these things can be very expensive. The material is soft and it's easy to grab, the design it perfect.I would highly recommend this to anyone.I did cut the stem off completely but I've done that to every cup I've had ( I tried the diva - too firm for me and I didn't like the shape, I use the Saalt Soft cups and love those but again - I wanted the higher capacity )

    I have tried so many cup and they've all given me trouble. Sometime leakage or it very uncomfortable. This has been the best cup because it is larger and is able to hold more fluid. The smaller cup is perfect for my lighter days. The only thing I had to do was to cut off the stem. This made the cup comfortable for me and since it has the grip on the bottom of the cup, I am able to grab it with ease. Not every cup is design for everyone but this one was the best for me!
