Best Menstrual Cup for Beginners: Lily Cup One

I’ve unofficially dubbed this the unicorn of menstrual cups, because it’s not only great for beginners but checks all my personal preference boxes as well! I love that I can carry it with me, it’s easy to insert and remove, and it lets me literally forget about my period for twelve hours! It’s so comfortable, and even as someone who swore by the original, this design might just have it beat.”

What happened when I tried a Menstrual Cup | Lily Cup Review

Apart from the fact that I haven’t tried it at night yet (I will, I was just a huge chicken) I absolutely loved the first time trying a menstrual cup. I’d been telling Steve all weekend how much of an absolute game changer it was for me and how I can’t wait to use it again next time around. My periods are all over the place (always have been even before I had Madison) so I think I’ll always be the girl to have an ’emergency’ pad just in case I come on when I can’t quickly sterilise the Lily Cup One, but I think I can definitely say I’ll never be using tampons again. Not only for the health implications that tampons can bring on, but for the savings as well.”

Review: Lily Cup One

Big points to Intimina for creating a travel-friendly menstrual cup. As my first cup, it was incredibly easy for me to use and super comfortable to boot. I’m docking a full point because they only make this in one size… Yet, despite it not being my “Holy Grail,” I’m keeping this cup for the sake of portability. I’ll never be caught without an emergency period product! So, the Lily Cup One will be tucked away in its carrying case in my purse, if ever my time of the month comes while I’m on the go.”

Even if her flow is a little heavier, this reviewer still likes keeping a Lily Cup One in her purse.

    I am 16 and new to menstrual cups. I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong, but this thing is HUGE and I cannot get it in me. And if I can get it in, the end sticks out of me. When I tried to take it out, I screamed in pain because the suction refused to break and I had no choice, after a whole 20 minutes of trying, but to yank it out. I could hardly walk for an hour because it stung so bad. What am I doing wrong? Everyone loves the Lily Cup One, so I feel like there’s something wrong with my anatomy. I’ve watched a bunch of videos and I don’t think it’s user error… I’m folding it right and everything…

      Hi Addi! I’m so sorry to hear that you’re having trouble with your cup! It is possible that it just isn’t right for your body (not that your body is ‘wrong’ – just sometimes things aren’t a match!) but let’s try some troubleshooting before we write it off. First, I really can’t overstate the importance of being completely relaxed when first trying to insert your cup. Do some yoga, have a hot bath, whatever helps you chill right out (just until you get a hang of things!). Then, you may want to try a water-based personal moisturizer. It will add a slickness to help with insertion. Then, ideally, the cup will sit a bit higher within you, but one thing you can try is ‘inverting’ your cup. Turn it inside out so that the ring/stem is inside the cup and not poking out of your body. Then, when it’s time to remove the cup, do your best to use your fingers (quite high within you) to squeeze the sides of the cup enough to break the suction before pulling out. You might try squeezing in one spot then rotating your fingers into another spot to try and release the seal. I hope these tips help – please write back if you’re still having issues!
