    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.

    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!
    It sounds like you're on your way to becoming a cup pro, but please don't hesitate to contact us directly should you need any support.

    Cheers to no more strings!

    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.

    Hi! My name is Shierly, I'm just using my husband's Amazon account. This is my first try using venus cup. For a first timer it takes time for me to put it on and taking it out is not bad. I followed the instructions to boil it for 5 minutes and rinse cold running water. It's good that I don't feel it once it's in. Hopefully I put it in right, that it won't leak. I'll update my review again later.

    I have used a different cup, but the big cup holds more and feels comfortable to use. They have help and answer any questions you have. It would be a great starter kit for someone wanting to try it out because it has the two sizes. Ps. the key is to use your muscles to push it out.

    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.

    Hello Lycanthropic Linguist,

    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!

    I was looking for a high capacity cup because my previous cup(diva cup size 1) would overflow at night and have random leaks during the day and I had been using that cup for a few years. I believe the diva cup just didn’t work with my anatomy.I bought the combo cup pack because I wasn’t sure that the large cup would work for me but it does! This cup is amazing! I have no leaks and I can sleep without worry. The cup opens with no problem and I find it to be softer than the diva cup. Btw, I haven’t had kids and the cup fits comfortably.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and including that the large size worked for you even if you haven't had any kids. People tend to think that they have to use a small cup if they've never had kids. You've proven that it isn't always the case.

    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'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.

    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.

    Best wishes,

    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!

    I LOOOOOVVVVVEEEE these cups! I waited before I did my review. I have used these cups for 3 months now and love them!...So Yes!...My Own Godilocks Cups!...At least for me it is!...The right capacity....not too big...not too small...not to too long...and it opens!...EASILY!...I mostly use the larger cup because I need a larger capacity due to my heavy flow! On my heaviest days which is day 2,3 and sometimes 4, of my 5 day period, I need a very large capacity cup! I can fill a cup about every 2 to 3 hours on my heaviest days...on other cups I've tried like the Eva Cup, Diva Cup, and Femmy Cup. I tried the Super Jenny and the capacity was very good, but I had a hard time with opening the rim and would experience leaks...a lot...mostly on my heaviest days!.. UGH!...Actually!...All the other cups I've tried that I mentioned above...I would have the same issue...fighting with the rim to open properly!....The Venus Cup...for me and my body...is the best underrated, affordable cup going around! It opens easily...it has a ring in the middle to topof the cup to help open properly. The grip rings are not intrusive. I have to cut all stems on my cups...so I can't review that. The smaller cup...I didn't even think I was going to use...at all..BUT...I notice that on my really light days sometimes my cervix moves lower and the larger cup is a little uncomfortable...so I find myself using both to my suprise!...I love the packaging...and It comes with not 1...but 2 bags to place your cups in!...I also comes with very detailed instructions for everthing from insertion...to storage...to cleaning properly!...All in a colorful booklet...with diagrams to help!...I understand that these cups will not be for every BODY...but I have been using cups for over 5 years and happen to have a medium length cervix that sometimes moves low on some days...and was beginning to think that leaking cups was just going to be a thing I had to just deal with....I really hope this helps someone.

    I love these cups. I’m not a new user to menstrual cups, I had other cups before.Venus Menstrual Cups are soft and belled shaped cups. Tricky to open at first but I got the hang of them. Very comfortable to wear, you can’t feel the cup and it’s a good thing. No cramping involved. The suction is alright to deal with. Stem pokes out me because I have a med/low cervix, changes throughout menstrual cycle and I can’t feel the stem. Win win situation for me at least.I did have a leaking problem and was my fault thinking my period wasn’t going to be heavy on the second day. I also had trouble a few times with this cup like I said earlier.TMI: When you’re pooping too hard just be careful, you may have to adjust it or might slip out if you don’t.I do recommend you getting them to try them out yourselves.

    Really wanted to love. Kept leaking and had trouble opening. Repositioned and tried different insertion techniques but it was a no go. It was like when it in an uncomfortable position, it semi worked but still leaked. When it was in a better position, it leaked even worse.
    Reply from Venus Cup Team:
    Hi MzMaxxy,

    I’m sorry that the Venus Cup didn’t work out for you. It can take some practice whether it’s your first time using a cup or it’s a new cup in your collection. I know that you tried different insertion techniques but I’m going to share some tips that you might have missed. Maybe something below will help.

    - The cervix is not normally located straight up. Instead, insert the folded cup down and back towards your tailbone while in a squat on the ground. This will help put the cup in a better position under or around your cervix.
    - If the cup will not open, try wiggling it down a bit and then use a finger to push it back into place. Often when a cup is inserted completely, the cervix is in the way of letting the rim expand. Wiggling it down will let the cervix correct itself.
    - You can also insert the cup half way, let it expand (below the cervix) and then use a finger to push it up into place.

    If you’re spotting after the cup is inserted, try wiping the base and stem with a wet cloth to remove any excess blood. It’s common that there is some blood on the outside of the cup that finds its way out eventually, and inconveniently.

    I hope that these tips help with the Venus Cup or any cup. Please don’t hesitate to contact us directly should you ever need support. We’re always here to help.

    Thank you for sharing your (mostly) positive experience with the Venus Cup Starter Kit. I'm happy to hear that you were able to grasp the concept of use fairly quickly and that it kept you protected for 12 hours.
    However, I'm sorry that the stem was not long enough for easy removal. I would suggest squatting or bearing down with your muscles to bring the cup lower for an easier reach. If you still find that the small is too short, the larger size might be a bit easier to maneuver.
    Good health, stay well.

    I got the two pack, it came with small and large, two bags, and probably one of the most descriptive user manuals I’ve ever seen. Which is a good thing for new people!!!! So I did a dry run with this cup because I won’t have a cycle for another month, and I’ll edit this later. Any who, I have 3 cups prior to this one. My main cup that I always go to is my diva cup size 1. I got the large Venus because it’s about the same length as the diva cup, but holds more due to the shape (which I can’t wait to see how long it takes to fill on those heavy days!) for once I didn’t have to remove the stem on this cup! It’s short but very bendy and doesn’t poke me like all my other cups do. It opens with ease when inserted (I use the punch down fold with all my cups.) when inside, it doesn’t push on my bladder like my saalt regular cup. And removal was easier than my diva cup (I think it felt better because it’s smooth and rounded unlike my diva cup which is cone shaped and pointy.) so far I’m sold! Perfect firmness (same firmness as a diva cup which is a level 3), opens very easily, comfortable stem that I don’t have to remove, removal is less irritating due to how smooth it is, and better capacity due to its shape. So if you like diva cups, then this is definitely an upgrade for you, or if you found the diva cup was a tad too long, the small will be a nice option due to it being a few mm shorter. (The size small is also a nice starter size. Little smaller in length and width. Smaller than my size 1 diva cup. But a good starter size, not to big and not to small. I’ll be giving it to my friend because I wanted the big one, and for a few extra dollars I got both. )(Edit): so I finally got to use this on my cycle and I’m in love. My heavy days don’t feel heavy with this cup because it holds so much. My diva would fill up after about 3 hours on a heavy day. Out of fear I checked at a 4 hour mark on my heavy day, and it didn’t even reach the half way mark. I haven’t had leaks At all. And removal is so much nicer feeling on my body Due to the round soft base (my diva cup made me sore or it jabbed me during removal. ) I’m pretty sure I have a new Goldilocks. I still love my diva cup.... but I think I love my Venus large more <3

    Using this cup has completely changed my periods for the better! I have super heavy periods where I have to wear pads and tampons together and sometimes change every 20 minutes. I am always afraid there is going to be an embarrassing accident. This cup took some getting used to just because I’ve never used one before, but it was so much easier than I was expecting. You definitely get pretty aquatinted with yourself. I don’t love the smaller one just because I did have some leaking, but the larger one was perfect! No leaking. It was uncomfortable at first but I figured out that I didn’t have it in far enough. Once you get past the learning curve it’s great. I was also concerned about not being able to get it out, but there is no issue there either.

    This product is amazing. I have very heavy periods, as in I can't use tampons or disposable pads because unless I want to visit the bathroom every 1/2-1 hour normal daily life activities really aren't possible. I have been using menstrual cups for 5 months now hoping they would help my situation and decrease my imprint upon the earth. I have used Saalt Sensitive large cup and Organicup small. The Saalt Sensitive I struggled with forever, always leaking, never staying sealed, slipping during use, and when I was working out my pelvic muscles would literally collapse the entire thing. Organicup small worked well, but was exactly that...small. I was having to empty the cup at minimum every 2 hours which was annoying. So I tried Venus. All problems solved! Soft enough to be gentle on my very sensitive anatomy, firm enough to get a seal every single time without having to fidget with it forever! The 'small' venus holds way more than all other 'smalls' in other brands but a good option for not so heavy days and when cervix is a little lower. The 'large' has a great capacity and surprisingly not that "intimidating" of a size; it is comparable to my Saalt large cup in size but holds way more! It is a little long, so I don't wear it all through cycle, only on my very heavy days when my cervix is higher. If cervix is lower, it does contact it a bit and not so comfortable. But it has made my life manageable again. No more trying to figure out how I can use the bathroom every 2 hours; I can wear it for 4 hours at least on my very heaviest days. I did have to trim the stem in both cups, but I do that for all cups. I have never felt the stem and the base is awesome, good firmness with a tread that is very easy to grab a hold of. With some menstrual panties as back up for just in case, these products have given me back freedom to live my life. GREAT OPTION for heavy menstrual flow. And the two sizes are awesome to have to use on different days of my cycle. I have finally found my Goldilocks cup and so thankful to Venus for making such a great product that is reasonably priced and made in the USA. GOOD JOB VENUS!

    I bought a cup because I was worried about the clearing shelves of hygiene products due to covid19. On particularly bad cycles I can soak through a super plus tampon in an hour. I didn't want to have to live pantsless in my bathtub due to my biblical like flow, if I couldn't get my hands on anything.Because of my heavy flow I went with the larger size and capacity. I'm 31 and have never had children.The learning curve was difficult, I tried a "dry" run a few times and was incredibly unsuccessful. I failed several times on the first day of my cycle, I just could not get the thing to open! I tried several folds, I tried squeezing a finger in there but there just wasn't room for both my finger and the cup . I gave up for a bit read some suggestions on blogs and decided to make the air holes a smidgen wider and inserted it with the fold facing down (I used punch down fold) instead of facing up. With those two tweaks I FINALLY managed to get it to pop open half way through the second day of my cycle, at the end of the night I emptied the cup and was rather sore from all my failed attempts so I slept with a tampon instead. I'm now on my fourth day of my cycle and it's use is already becoming second nature. I'm officially converted, this is going to be a game changer when I can go back to work. I work outside and we only have a Porta potty, so you had to stash your used products in your purse until you could properly dispose of them.This cycle doesn't appear like it's going to be a particularly bad one, I've been emptying it every 2-6 hours just out of precaution and the cup has never actually been full. I'll be curious to see how it performs on a bad one.

    Although it sounds like you were able to find information online, we're always here to support you should you need it. Just contact us directly and one of the Venus Cup Team Members will offer one on one help.
    Here are a couple of additional tips if you ever run into issues getting the rim to open, again.
    - Position one of the air holes in the fold. This will allow air to rush in and fill and help open the cup.
    - Insert the cup halfway before letting it expand and then use a finger to push it up into place.
    The user manual was created to make it easy for new users to get started. It is very detailed and includes some tips and visuals. Again, if you can't find the information that you're looking for in the manual, don't hesitate to contact us directly.

    Awsome customers service, and a really great product. I think i accidentally knock my first cup in the trash without noticing it and I was so upset I had to buy another one. This is my favorite cup and it will always be my first choice!

    So I used a cup years ago. With all the uncertainties in the world and a low stock of tampons. I thought I would give it another go. I like the idea of not using Tampons. I bought the starter pack. On my 1st day I used the smaller size and it worked good for the 1st and second time. As my flow got heavier I had to switch to the larger cup and thank goodness I did because I fill it fast. Ot has taken some adjustments to getting it in correctly as well as the sensation of it filling. I have had some leaking but, I am still learning. The leaking is no worse than bleeding through a tampon and is manageable with my normal backup. I have also ordered period panties to always have a back up as I do have a very heavy flow. I have lots of hopes for this product as I practice and master it. So far my best fold is the c fold.

    Thank you for sharing your detail experience with the Venus Cup starter kit. I'm happy to hear that both sizes have been a good fit for you. Check out the user manual for troubleshooting common leaking issues, but I'll include a tip of one of the most common here.
    After inserting the Venus Cup, use a damp cloth to remove excess blood from the stem and grip rings. Excess blood is often mistaken for the cup leaking.
    Otherwise, using a period panty is a great option until you're confident using your cup without it.
    Although it sounds like you're off to a great start, please feel free to contact me directly should you need any support.

    Cheers to mess & leak-free periods!

    I was very surprised by this cup, it was my first one and I bought the starter pack with both sizes because I wasn’t sure what would fit. Before I was having menstrual discs but I would still experience leakage. I’ve used this Venus cup for two cycles so far and I have had the cleanest period ever. The learning curve wasn’t so bad and the instruction book that comes with the kit is very detailed and thorough for beginners which help me with insertion. I’ve worked out with the cup doing kickboxing and running and had times where I pulled the cup out nearly half full and still no leakage. The grip on the bottom of the cup helps to pull out the suction and then of course the stem for tugging it out just a bit. Even sometimes when doing nature’s business, the cup tends to push out a bit, but it never loses suction and naturally places itself where it needs to be somehow, otherwise you can pinch the grip above the stem and slip it just a bit.Overall I love this cup and besides the horrible cramps I get, this has made my period so stress free without worrying about leaking even for my heavier days with the larger cup. For those of you complaining about the size of the bigger cup. It doesn’t hurt, it’s a silicone cup and it’s soft so you will hardly feel anything but a little pressure while you’re learning to put it in properly. Just follow the instructions they provide. It’s really helpful, but I Definitely recommend!!

    Hi Kayla,

    Thank you for sharing your very detailed experience with the Venus Cup kit. We're honored that you gave the Venus Cup a chance even after experiencing leaking with another brand, albeit a menstrual disc and not a menstrual cup.
    I'm happy to hear that the user manual helped get through the learning curve and that you were able to use the Venus Cup during such vigorous activities!
    It sounds as though you're well on your way for years of leak & mess-free period protection, but please feel free to contact us directly should you need any support.

    Cheers!

    Yes there is definitely a learning curve with insertion and removal, but once you get the hang of it there's no turning back! I love that this set comes with a regular size and a large-capacity size for the same price that other companies charge for one. Very few companies offer larger capacity cups for heavier flows, but I was also afraid to purchase a large one without having tried any first. So it's great that you can start off with the smaller one and then move on to the bigger one for the days you need it. I even recommended it to my sister and cousin who also have heavy periods. I now use the cup with period underwear. I will never use tampons or pads again!

    One of the best cups I’ve used. I got the both sizes and use the bigger one for my heavy nights. They are just flexible enough without being to soft. I was able to cut the stem all the way off and have had no issue with getting it in or out. Best part is it’s cheaper then a lot of other cups!
    Reply from Venus Cup Team:
    Hi MsLion,

    I'm so pleased to hear that both sizes of the Venus Cup are working well for you. Heavy and over-night protection was one of our goals. I'm glad that the Venus Cup was able to provide that and still be easy to use.
    We understand how expensive the initial cost of a menstrual cup can be. We're proud to have an affordable price without cutting the quality.

    Cheers to reusable and affordable menstrual protection!

    I have been using cups for a couple of years now. I love this cup!! I ordered the package that had both size cups. I used the large size one. I bleed very heavily. With the other cups, even at a heavy flow capacity, I was still emptying about every 3 hours. With this cup, I could go 8 hours without having to empty it. I could go all night without having to get up and empty in the middle of the night. This will definitely be my new go to cup.

    For a newbie, it was a wonderful experience using it. I did have to cut a bit off the tip of it but that doesn't affect the function of it. It was well worth the money and would purchase it again. I did check out a few videos before purchasing one just to get an idea of what I would want to look for. It is nice not having to deal with pads or tampons anymore. I just wear my period panties with my cup and all is right with the world. I sometimes forget I am on my period. I just wish that this was available when I was in school. Would have made my life easier.

    I'm with you, L Wells! I wish I had known about menstrual cups while I was in school, as well. The important thing is that at least we can still take advantage of them now :)

    I’m a grandmother who bought this kit for my teenage granddaughter. She was always having issues at school with spillover using tampons. She’s only been using tampons for about 6 months. Her parents were concerned about TSS. I sent her the videos and reading material. These cups are better because of the Tiny holes at the top, just pinch, release suction, and pull. These is a learning curve, she practiced over a weekend. But she loves, loves, loves the Venus cup. She has all day protection at school. I bought s silicone folding camping cup to sterilize in, and that she can put a bit of water in to rinse before stepping into the washroom at school if needed. She says she will never go back to tampons. The first day can prove a little difficult to insert, so I got a water solvable lube she puts just around the rim. It slides right in. I sure wish these had been around when I needed them! Great product.

    What a wonderful grandmother you are! I wish my grandmother knew and spoke to me about using a cup when I was younger. Thank you so much for putting your granddaughter's faith in Venus Cups' hands. I'm very happy to hear that she was able to practice and get the hang of using it so quickly.
    Please pass on our congratulations on success with a menstrual cup. Also, let her know that she is welcome to contact us directly if she needs any support.

    I have used the small cup, for 3 cycles now. I don’t know why I didn’t know about these cups sooner! After having 3 kids, my body wasn’t liking any form of protection when I was on my period. I bought this as a last attempt to be comfortable. I can’t even tell it’s there. It’s that comfortable! I have a heavy flow in the beginning, to lower flow middle and end. This cup is able to handle it all! I highly recommend.

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
