    I purchased both sizes of the Venus cup because I lost my size 2 Lunette menstrual cup. These are definitely more affordable than the Diva cup and Lunette. It's a thinner silicone. It's easier for you to fold into whatever shape you want. I struggle with getting it to open once inside because of the firmness. I give it a few turns while slightly moving it up or down in order to make sure it's open all the easy.The suction is great. I've barely had any leaks. The biggest difference is the size of the cups. Venus sizes are bigger than other brands sizes. This is great if you have heavy periods like me. I can sleep through the night with very minimal leakage. I used to have to sleep with a nighttime pad and wake up in the middle of the night before.The additional cup length of the large Venus makes it easy for me to potentially put it too high or touch my cervix which is painful.I'm glad I purchased them and I will continue to use them.

    Hi Melanie,
    We appreciate the time you took to share your experience while using the Venus Cups. We’re pleased to learn that you feel that they are more affordable than some of the well-known brand names while still being a valuable addition to the menstrual cup line-up.
    If you still have issues with light spotting, use a pH balanced wipe, damp cloth, or even a clean, wet finger (while in the shower) to get rid of any excess blood. Commonly, the presence of excess blood present on the stem or cup’s base can cause spotting. Although it may not be the cup leak, it is still an irritation that can be avoided with a quick clean-up.
    Please feel free to contact us directly if have any other questions or concerns. We’re always here to help.
    Best wishes,

    My first cup ever and it's been a great experience thus far (used through entire cycle and nearing end). The biggest tip I have for first time user is to make sure the rim is expanded and secured against wall. Great and easy to use product. Also no more dryness and super comfortable.

    This was a game changer for me. I haven't had issues with my cycle ever since I got these. My flow is heavy and with the large cup I haven't had scares (yet) and I am finally able to function without being constantly close to a restroom.
    Reply from Venus Cup Team:
    Thank you for sharing your experience while using the Venus Cup. We have to agree that it’s a game-changer once you get over the learning curve. We hope that it continues to provide you with high-capacity protection for many years. If you come across any light spotting, wipe the stem and cup’s base as best as you can after it is inserted. Often, excess blood will find its way out making some individuals think that their cup is leaking when it’s not.

    If you want to use less or no tampons (to be more natural, save money, feel healthier or for whatever reason), I definitely recommend trying this amazing invention! I tried this because when my period is heavy, I have to change my 'super plus' (really, really big tampons) literally every hour. That means every month, there are at least a couple nights where I get really bad sleep. This Cup completely alleviates that problem for me as it can stay inside for up to 12 hours. I am sleeping through the night now, every day of the month!!! Not to mention the money I'm saving by not buying so many tampons + my son and husband aren't complaining when I don't adequately cover up my used tampons in the trash can! However, if you are squeamish, don't like getting your hands dirty (literally), struggle with your intimate parts (you will pretty much have your hand up in there) or don't have access to a clean bathroom or place to wash your hands (you should wash your hands before removing and re-inserting), this is not a good option for you. Basically, if you're going through hundreds of tampons, changing them every hour, or want to save money, give this a try!! I'm glad I did!

    Hi Kim,
    Thank you for sharing your experience while using the Venus Cup Starter Kit. We couldn’t be more pleased to learn that it has allowed you to get a good night’s rest even during your heavy flow days. You are absolutely the type of person we were hoping to help with our high-capacity design. Indeed, using a menstrual cup can be messy, but it is also true with tampons and pads. It’s just a different mess. With time and practice, using a cup should get easier and less messy.
    Your wisdom and tips are invaluable to individuals who are on the fence. Thank you for pointing them out.
    Cheers to saving money and all-night protection!

    The regular/light flow cup: 5 stars! The heavy:3 stars; solely due the fact the pull tab part is too short for a good grip and the angles of the grippers are contrary to the fingers to pull it out *ouch*. Otherwise, absolutely game changer for the monthly cycle

    Hi Stephani,
    Thank you for sharing your experience while using both the small and large Venus Cup. We’re pleased to hear that the small cup was 5 stars in your book. However, although the small and large cups have the same total length, we’re sorry that you felt that the stem on the large was too short. If it’s possible (depending on where you are when emptying the cup) it may be easier to squat or bear down with your muscles to push the cup closer to the vaginal opening.

    I have been using this product since May 2021. I never write product reviews, but to be honest, this product has been so good for me that I felt I should. I have tried other brands of menstrual cups, and the larger ones seem to be either too soft or not big enough.The large size is perfect for my heaviest day. I used to go through a super tampon about every 1-2 hours, and even with 25-27ml cup, I would have to get up once or twice at night to change it. With the large Venus cup (max of 47ml), I have had no problems sleeping through the night and no big rush to empty it in the morning either.It doesn't seem to by physically much different than other brands, just wider at the base. I have found that the wider base is helpful because you can sort of feel it getting heavier when it is about half full... so I can 100% relax. I know it isn't leaking or about to be full to the brim. It is comfortable and only noticeable if I think about it.I don't worry about going for long walks, getting up in the night, or running lots of errands. On heavy days, I can easily wear it for 6+ hours without a problem. I decided to write this review because I realized that I often forget that I have my period now, even on the heaviest day. It is not a big deal anymore. I don't know that it is life-changing, but it is definitely life-improving.The learning curve for me was incredibly short. I figured out that a z-fold works best on the large cup on my second insertion and have had no further issues. It is much firmer than other high capacity cups... It is so quick and easy to put in that I use it for the entire cycle and don't bother with the small one.I believe it comes with a pamphlet on different ways to fold it, for people new to cups. I've found that a z-fold, gentle tug out, and then push back in gets it set perfectly. As for removal, the width of the base makes it easy to grab, which breaks the seal with no problem. For those who have used cups before, you won't have any issues with insertion and removal.That's it. I'm a fan, and I don't think I'll be investing in any other styles or sizes until Venus inevitably tweaks their design and ruins it. Companies love doing that.

    Thank you for sharing your detailed experience while using the Venus Cup. We couldn’t be more pleased to hear that it was quick and easy to use, and that it had the capacity that you were hoping for, especially overnight.
    Indeed the base is wider, but it is what allows a higher capacity. We are happy that it was not only comfortable, but actually helpful to you in knowing when to empty it.
    You can be sure that we will not change anything about the design of this particular Venus Cup. We use and love it too!

    Reply from Venus Cup Team:
    Although the Venus Cup is approximately the same length and diameter as an average-sized menstrual cup, the base is rounded to raise the total capacity. This indeed makes it seem larger than other cups, but it’s just that it is not taped like “V”-shaped cups. Nonetheless, we are pleased to learn that it works well for your anatomy.

    This was my first menstrual cup and I was going to purchase another brand but chose this instead. I watched a thousand videos on YouTube to get myself prepared but it was simple to use and easy to remove. I only used the small cup and it never got full on my heavy day. I work 12 hour shifts as a CNA and I kept it in for the entire time. Adding up the hour before work and the hour to get home, I had it in for about 14 hours. I was scared I would get tss or something but it was fine. I didn't feel uncomfortable with the length of the stem so I didn't cut it down. I actually felt better knowing I could feel it easily when it was time to be removed. I also have irregular bleeding so my period does its own thing. I was bleeding for over a month and the costs for tampons and pads were stressing me out. I was purchasing multiple packs of each tampon size because I couldn't tell if I was going to be heavy or light that day. This cup saved my budget and eased my mind. I 1000% recommend this.On a side note I bought a sterilizer for my cup so I wouldn't have to worry about boiling it. Also I just keep it in the pouch it came with and I bring it around in my pocket in case of an emergency. (I never know when my period will start).
    Reply from Venus Cup Team:
    First of all, thank you for your service as a CNA during this pandemic.
    Second, thank you for choosing the Venus Cup as your first menstrual cup. We couldn’t be more pleased that it was easy for you to use. I’m sure that watching videos really helped you to be prepared for what to expect.
    The Venus Cup is made of medical grade silicone and is safe to use all day as long as it is removed at least twice during the day for a good rinse; whether you’re bleeding or not. Some people use it on a daily basis to collect discharge and keep moisture at bay. If you feel comfortable using it day to day and are confident that you will have good hygiene habits, there is no need to carry it in your pocket just in case of surprises.
    Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any other questions or concerns.
    Cheers to all day period protection!

    I was very iffy about trying this especially since it was bought first Diva Cup. After using it for my 2ed period I finally got the hang of putting it in properly. I will say if you have nails be very careful I learned that the hard way. I absolutely love this and I will continue to use it.
    Reply from Venus Cup Team:
    Thank you for sharing your feedback while using the Venus Cup Starter Kit. Indeed, having extremely long nails can pose its own learning curve, but it is still doable and we’re pleased to hear that you didn’t give up.
    One great tip we’ve come across is to tuck your thumbnail under the pointer fingernail so that a rounded surface is entered into the vaginal canal. Once inserted, shift the fingers apart to pinch the cup with the fingertips.

    I've never used cups before. I was truly worried so I always put it off. But after having my children and getting my tubes tied, I found my periods to be EXTREMELY heavy. I was bleeding through the biggest super plus tampon I could find within an hour. I had to wear pads along with my tampons to make sure I wasn't going to have a big disaster by missing the hour by a couple minutes. I wore adult diapers and nighttime pads (inside the diaper) to keep from bleeding through at night. I was constantly getting cystic-like acne in my bikini area due to wearing pads so much. I was going through almost whole box of tampons for just one period. I did research about menstrual cups. I watched videos on how to insert, different sizes, different brand reviews, etc. I found Venus on Amazon and searched reviews. Decided I would go with the 2 pack for light days and my heavy days. I have a high cervix. (I measured with my finger. My whole index finger fit and I barely touched my cervix. And no, my fingers are not short. I think they are average length.) I inserted using the pinch fold. It was super easy. I could hear it pop open and only inserted until thetail' was flush with my skin. When I removed it, I just grabbed thetail' and pushed with my muscles while wiggling until it came down enough for me to squeeze it. I pulled the rest of the way out, no spills. The book helps with this along with YouTube video. For this being my first time ever using a cup, I truly cannot think of another cup. This is life changing! I'm never going back.

    Doesn't seal properly like Diva. Had to buy Diva at whole foods since this was not working and I was on my period! I have used Diva for the past 5 yrs with no issues and needed a 2nd one for travel. So bought Venus thiking that 2 cups would be ideal for different flow days. Bad choice because of 2 reasons1) bell like design at the end doesn't seal properly and2) always had an urge to pee as it pressed against my bladder making it very uncomfortableDesign like a cone (which Diva has) works far more effectively! I'm returning Venus.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback after trying the Venus Cup. Menstrual Cups are not a “one-size/type-fits all” just like each of the people who use them. We’re sorry that the shape and size did not fit your anatomy. However, just because it didn’t work for you does not mean there is a flaw in the design. We’re still pleased to hear that you already have a cup that works for you.

    I really enjoy using these reusable cups. They work well if you have a light-medium flow. I found myself constantly changing it when the flow was heavier. Sometimes I had a problem removing it if I slept with it, but I would just sit on the toilet and push until my fingers reached the tip.Really happy with my purchase. It doesn't irritate at all. I boil the cups before each new cycle and rinse with hot water in between.I highly recommend this product especially if you get irritation from tampons and pads or you simply want to be more eco-friendly.

    Reply from Venus Cup Team:
    Thank you for taking a moment to share your feedback while using the Venus Cup Starter Kit. We’re sorry to hear that your experience wasn’t a successful one. Here are some tips in case you decide to try either of the sizes again. And as always, you are welcome to contact us directly for one on one support. We’re here to help.

    Make sure that the cup is properly placed -
    In a squatting position, aim the folded cup down and back towards your tailbone. The cervix isn't normally located straight up into the vaginal canal. Inserting it as such can result in a cup that won't open completely, leaking, shifting or rotating, and/or discomfort and pressure.


    Make sure there are no dents -
    After the cup is inserted, insert a finger and feel around the rim or as high up on the cup as you can for any dents. If you feel a dent, wiggle the cup down and then use a finger to push it back up into place. Often, when a cup (any cup) is inserted completely, the cervix gets in the way of allowing the rim to fully expand. Wiggling or rocking the cup down will let your cervix correct itself.
    Alternatively, you can insert the cup halfway and then let it open before using a finger to push it into place.
    Either way will help the cup open before being positioned directly under or around the cervix.
    Excess blood -
    There's always some blood coating the vaginal walls even after the cup is placed. To avoid spotting, use a wet pH balanced wipe or cloth to clean the grip rings and stem of any excess blood.
    Overflow -
    If you are leaking due to overflow in a short amount of time, the only suggestion I can make is to either empty the cup more often or to try the larger size providing your cervix height allows it.
    Please keep in mind that even though we state that you can use the cup for up to 12 hours, it depends on your menstrual flow. Individuals with a very heavy flow may only be able to use the cup for 4-6 hours before they need to empty it.

    If a cup feels like it is sliding down, it’s either the wrong size or doesn’t have a good seal.

    Again, please feel free to contact us directly. We would be happy to give you one on one support to help you have a successful cup experience.

    I have tried 3 other menstrual cups before the venus, and it is by far my favorite. As someone with extremely heavy periods, I can honestly say that the venus cup has given me back some of my quality of life during my period. I would previously change other cups every 1.5-2 hours on my heaviest day, and I only have to empty every 4-5 hours on my heaviest day now with the large size. It is quite large and you really need the anatomy for this cup, otherwise, you would be able to feel it. It was uncomfortable when I first inserted it but after I adjusted to the cup and how to place it, it was fine. Sometimes it does press against my bladder but it's tolerable. Overall, I love it and this cup will become my go to.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback with us after using the Venus Cup Starter Kit. Although the small and large cups have the same total length, we’re sorry that the shortened stem made it difficult to remove. We hope that the smaller Venus Cup is still easy and comfortable.
    Squatting in the tub might be helpful as it pushes your cervix (and cup) lower and gives you better access to reach it.

    I hadn't used a cup in years due to an iud, followed by back to back pregnancies, but when my period finally came back I decided it was time to get a new one. Tampons just weren't holding enough (especially overnight) and I was getting tired of stinky pads. It took me a while to decide on this one. I ultimately ordered it for the capacity, I'd woken up at least once every recent period having soaked through my tampon and all over my underwear and sheets.The large cup is definitely large!! But the way it is shaped, it doesn't feel much different. It's a little longer, but not so long as to be noticeable. It can definitely hold more than any tampon I've tried. The smaller one is pretty similar to other cups. They are both soft, but firm enough that they aren't hard to open upon insertion. I didn't have any pressure or discomfort with either size. I'm pretty short and my cervix is a bit on the lower side but I didn't even have to trim the stems on these, especially since the silicone is so soft. Overall happy with my choice!

    I was nervous about trying this product, fearing it wouldn't work for my body (very low cervix), and trying not to get my hopes up that a larger capacity cup existed for me.I'm a very experienced cup user. I've tried several types in the past 13 years, with the Lunette being my favorite for the past 8-9. Regardless of brand/size, I've always had to remove the stems entirely. It's the first thing I do when I get a new one, based on previous experiences and the large Venus is no exception. I may be able to keep some of the stem on the small one. I'm not sure yet, as I've never had a cup quite that small.I've only used the large one so far. It was tricky the first several tries. I prefer a firmer cup (the Venus is pretty soft), and had to try a few different folds to get it right. It was almost like starting from scratch. It didn't want to open all the way, so I had to get creative and let it start opening as I was inserting it.It's sitting low, but working. And I mean LOW. If there were a stem attached it would be hanging out of my vagina. Hopefully it will continue to fit well enough to work because I'm desperate for a larger capacity for my worst days, days I can fill a Lunette in less than an hour, nights I wake up covered in blood because a cup and overnight pad aren't enough.I hope this gives some of my low cervix sisters some hope! If you position it just right, it may work for you too.
    Reply from Venus Cup Team:
    Thank you for sharing your positive experience with the Venus Cup Starter Kit and for giving low cervix users some hope.
    Indeed, the Venus Cup is much softer than the Lunette, but we chose an overall medium firmness closer to another well-known brand. We understand that some individuals will still find it too soft or too firm. We’re just happy that you were able to work around it.

    So far I live this menstrual cup. It is my first experience with one. There is a learning curve and it takes a few tries to figure put which fold is right for you. I do recommend to start using it a day or two before your cycle to get used to inserting, making sure it's sealed correctly, and pulling it out. I've had no issues pulling it out and cleaning the cup during my cycle. I felt much cleaner and better about myself using this cup. I highly recommend getting the one with the small and large cup therefore you have a higher capacity one for heavier days.

    The big one was too big for me. And the silicone was too soft. It didn't work for my needs. I like the material to be thicker and a longer stem.
    Reply from Venus Cup Team:
    We apologize that the Venus Cup wasn’t all that you hoped it would be. Although it is about the same length and diameter as the average large-sized cup, the wider base can feel “fuller” for some individuals. We also tried to keep the firmness in the middle to accommodate the majority of cup users, but it will always be too soft or firm for some. We’re just sorry that you didn’t have a good experience over all. We hope that you find a cup that’s right for you even if it’s not the Venus Cup.
    Best wishes on your hunt for the perfect cup.

    I was in my early twenties when I first decided to make the switch from tampons. I tried the Diva Cup and loved the freedom and convenience it offered but hated that I could never get a full twelve hours from it.So I searched and searched, trying every cup I could get my hands on and each time I was disappointed. Large or small, every cup I tried lost it's seal at around halfway full and leaked until I emptied it. Six years and many cups later, I thought I'd have to 'settle' and accept that there would be no perfect cup for me - Until now!The large Venus cup is hands down my new favorite. As it turns out, my cervix is low enough to sit partially INSIDE most cups, taking up valuable space and causing it to fill so much faster than it should. With the Venus, the cup seals perfectly around my cervix and still has plenty of holding capacity to spare! I can ride a bicycle to and from work and walk my dog three miles every day and never have to think about rushing to a bathroom to perform 'damage control.' The Venus is the only cup that can handle my cervix and my heavy flow and still keep on performing like a champ.I love it so much that I just ordered another to keep in my travel bag. Now I'll NEVER be caught without this excellent cup!

    I bought the Venus starter kit because a health issue and I have been using the small cup, so far without any inconvenient. I trim the stem and left just 3 cones like the large cup and I have no issues reaching it when I have to empty the cup. What I probably like the most is how soft it's. I have a couple of Saalt cups and those are really hard in comparison with the Venus. Another plus about the Venus cups for beginner users is the little manual book that come with the cups. The folds appear explained in detail there and there are lost of info about the cup and how use and take care of this.

    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.

    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.

    Thank you for sharing your experience with the Venus Cup Starter Kit. You included some wonderful details and we couldn't be more pleased to hear that both sizes have been easy and comfortable, as well as having the capacity you need for your heavier flow days.
    We're tickled pink that it is your go-to cup for yoga and working out.
    It sounds like you're already a pro, but if you should ever need any support, don't forget that you can always contact us directly.

    Cheers to comfortable & affordable period protection!
    Best wishes.

    *Pro User Tip: Placing a small sheet of toilet paper on the water's surface before emptying the contents will keep the blood from sticking to the bottom of the bowl.

    First off, I just almost peed myself just filling out this review, because it asks you if you want to add a photo or video???????. I'm.still.reviewing a menstrual cup, right?! Video or picture???? ????? Anyhoo...I didn't really like it but my daughter loves it. She feels it's comfortable and easy to manage. I personally felt like it should have bought me dinner or at least came with a sexy note. Just saying...

    Asking for a video or picture of a menstrual cup does sound strange now that you mention it! However, we still appreciate size comparison photos from people who have tried more than one cup. I guess a little more explanation would have been nice, huh?! LOL
    Anyhow, thank you for sharing that even if the Venus Cup wasn't the right option for you, your daughter was successful and comfortable with using it.
    Please let her know that if she ever needs any support, she's welcome to contact us directly.

    Thank you again for sharing both of your experiences.
    Best wishes.
    Stay well.

    Found this when searching for an alternative to pads and tampons because even the ultras were not enough, plus everything irritates my sensitive skin. The Venus cup is perfect: it holds a lot without being huge, it's easy to use even with the learning curve! I would definitely recommend!

    *Pro User Tip: Although the Venus Cup holds more than the average menstrual cup in either size, if you need to empty your cup in public, a couple of pH balanced wet wipes stored in a pocket or bag, will help you freshen up before leaving the stall.

    Worth the money
    The flower imprint aide in gripping for easy removal. The two sizes are perfect for different flows. No leakage when used correctly.

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
