  1. Dr. Shallu Dogra Sharma

    I was really worried about using a menstrual cup as it is my very first experience. First and the biggest problem was to know which brand to go for as a beginner. I could find only four brands (shecup, v cup, silky cup and first step digital’s Sirona) which are making such cups in India though the e-marketing sites are flooded with Chinese or some unbranded items. Although our country’s manufacturing sector is not that much developed as western world but still I have faith in India made things which are at lest far better than many Chinese products (well China is a manufacturing hub but is equally making good and worst product which are really difficult to differentiate by a layman).
    Second, the cost. Just for trial didn’t want to spend more. Shecup the costliest 1065/- silky cup the cheapest 300/-and Sirona somewhere near 300-400 depending upon discount offered by relative website. So finally just purchased this in medium size. I am 31, married, no children but my body built is still like that of 24-25 years, also I am physically pretty active (not heavily).
    I could learn the art of inserting it within a day through the help of YouTube, firstly it was a bit painful and leaky but then eventually I became comfortable.
    claims to be made of medical grade silicon (though I tried to contact their customer care to get all valid details regarding FDA approval etc. yesterday but did not get any reply till now, so I am a bit doubtful),
    Does not leak if fitted properly with little physical activity.
    Best suited for women with strong pelvic floor and reasonably tight keel muscles.

    Hard a bit but as I am physically active with medium good pelvic floor that’s fine.
    Being hard it presses my bladder and gives a little unease while urinating and pooping while it is on and leaks and slips that time.
    Slips and leaks while jogging and doing squats or other hard activities. So not recommended for workouts without a pad backup.
    Not at all for weak pelvic floor women. As may slip being over sturdy by failing to create enough vacuum pressure to stay at place.

    If the customer care people would have clarified my doubts positively (means all the claims made are true) I would have given 4 stars.
    Moreover I still feel need to try Shecup and rustic art cup before settling as per my research and desire to get and give my body the best as actually the good health is costliest.

    Hello friends let me share my experience with you regarding the silicone menstrual cup,
    I have used it last month for the first time since we were traveling to Rishikesh and Mussoorie,
    I always wanted to try but didn’t wanted to start by myself ,as human nature we are always comfortable if our friends or relatives use it first and based on their opinion we think of buying the stuff,
    I have waited for a long time before being a Guinea pig myself , but then since all my friends were being little sceptical of using it all we had to do is wait till someone tries ,
    So finally I decided to buy it online , I bought it from amazon this cup named as Sirona and believe it my friends it was a miracle, I couldn’t trust myself that the cup had done wonders for me , since I was traveling and doing all outdoors activities along with water rafting and swimming,it didn’t leak at all, not a single drop leaked on my panties as well,
    I was so so happy 😀, it was like a dream come true , I used to get lots of rashes by using pads and plus couldn’t sleep properly at night as well , but after using the cup I was normal just like any other day ,
    Initially first 2 days was a little difficult in inserting and adjusting but ltr it was just normal u don’t feel anything that’s inside u at all.
    U just need to follow the instructions given and the magic works , plus it is just a great initiative towards environment.
    U just need to wash the cup with regular tap water and reuse again,it can be used for 15yrs ,isn’t that wonderful??
    It cost me 350/- , which is what I generally spent in 2 months on buying regular pads.
    So friends give it a try , I am sure it will change ur life as it did mine ☺️

    Thanks , I know it’s too lengthy to read but as they all say experience counts and so I hope it will help u all too .😀😊
    A small initiative towards Mother Earth 🌏,let us all take this step in reducing the toxic waste that is created due to pads.

    Before you read this review I need you to understand that I’m a very private woman. I typically do not leave reviews about personal items such as this one- I do not want to influence anyone in the wrong way. So please understand how difficult it was for me to write this review. However, after experiencing this product for more than four months I felt the need to share my honest story. Maybe this review can help someone who is/was in the same situation as me. Let me also state that I was not endorsed, given a free product, or compensated in any way for this review. This is my honest review.

    Ladies this is a very difficult subject for some women and I completely understand because I was one of those women. I’ve struggled with maxi pads for a very long time. Due to my extremely heavy periods I’ve always had to use overnight pads. I despised using pads because they were bulky, uncomfortable, and I hated the weird smell you would get once the blood from the pad hit the air. (I know gross right?) I switched to Tampax tampons for a short time but they were extremely uncomfortable and after reading about toxic shock syndrome I just decided to forgo that idea. I heard about the menstrual cup and after hours of looking at YouTube videos, reading through Blogs, and whatever other literature I could find on the subject; I made the decision that I needed something life-changing to happen.

    I looked at all the happy women smiling in the videos holding their menstrual cups saying how easy it was so I thought “I Got This!” Since I’m 31 and I do not have any children I chose a small cup. Keep in mind ladies the website wants you to order a large cup if you’re over 30 but, again use your best judgment. Also remember this product is not a one-size-fits-all product there will be trial and error to find the right fit for you. Every woman is built differently so your cervix may sit high or low. There are plenty of videos out there on YouTube that shows you how to find your cervix (for those who might not be familiar with that area).

    Honest thought right here: I did not understand how women out there were able to say that “I just popped it right in!” Yea…. Unfortunately I did not have that luxury the first few times I tried it. Actually it took me two months to get this thing right. That’s the reason why I’m sharing my story for the women who become frustrated because I was there in that situation. After receiving the cup I read the book and I decided to try to insert it using the C-fold method which is the popular way of putting it inside your vagina (read the manual or Google it and you will get more information ). The C-Fold did not work for me I found myself extremely uncomfortable and for some reason it would not open to pop into place; I still had leakage. So I tried another way to use it and I realize that the Origami- Fold method was the best way for me to insert it. Keep in mind that it took me quite a while to get the hang of this and it might take you the same however, it’s okay it’s going to be frustrating at times because you want this thing to work right after you open it. However, it’s just not that simple for some of us.

    When I first tried inserting the cup… I would actually stretch out on the floor to insert it, I would try bending down to insert it, and I realized the best way for me to insert it was to actually squat down in the shower and put it in using the Origami Fold Method (that is when you push one side of the rim down about halfway in the cup then you press the two sides of the cup together). All of this information by the way is inside of the booklet and of course the many videos on YouTube. After many, many, many trial and error situations I finally got the hang of it. Believe me when I admit to you that I (a grown woman) actually shed some tears because I was so mad and frustrated at trying to get this cup inside me. Then like magic it hit me the reason why I was unable to successfully insert this cup is because I was too tense. I had to chill out and relax. I needed to remember that the most important thing I could do for myself at that particular moment was to relax, read the booklet, and just try it. I finally convinced myself that it was not a big deal.

    After three menstrual cycles I’m here today to sing the praises of this wonderful invention. I thought I was a heavy bleeder- I was wrong. I realized I did not bleed as much as I would leave in a pad (the cup is about halfway full after about eight hours). I can wear it to work comfortably, I can run, and I can swim. Most women say they can even have intercourse while wearing the cup! Yeah…….. I’m not going to try that so I’m not going to recommend that at this point. My moods have even been a lot better believe it or not because I don’t have to deal with the constant changing of a dirty pad. My boyfriend is pleasantly pleased with the fact that I go out now while I’m on my cycle (I used to stay home because the cramps were awful). I also found out that when I was using maxi pads I would probably take about six Motrin the first and second day just to help the heavy bleeding. With the cup I’m down to two Motrin and that’s only for the first day.

    That being said the benefits to using this cup definitely outweighs the few uncomfortable moments that you will have the first few times trying this cup out. You will just have to keep trying different positions until you get the hang of it. Another helpful tip is to use Cagle Exercises and believe me it will just suck the cup into the proper place. (Google Cagle Exercises) Most importantly remember to always use a pantyliner until you get the hang of it. No, the cup cannot get lost inside of you and start wandering around (unless you’re like the Grand Canyon down there ). Another plus is that you can also go number one while you still have the cup inside of you and not have to worry about the cup sliding out. I’ve read that this menstrual cup was so life-changing that some women actually wear thongs with this cup. Yeah…. I’m going to put that idea in the “I Have a Dream” section for now. I still consider myself a newbie to this and there’s no way I’m going to leave the house wearing a thong during my cycle. However, for the women who are able to do it more power to you!

    I apologize for the lengthy review however, I just had to let women know yes this cup works, yes it is a life-changing event for some women, and yes it can be gross at first. Once you learn how to actually get the hang of using the cup I guarantee you that it is so much better than using pads. Now I can just squat and put it right in without any issues. I appreciate you for taking time out to read my review. I hope it is informative. If you have any questions, I’ll try my hardest to get back to you. Thanks for taking time out to read this review and good luck!!!!

    One last final tip (if the other insert methods are not working). Squat down low (even lower than a football stance with your knees closed in) and try to insert the cup. There will be a slight suction sound when it pops into the proper place. Remember to relax (I know it’s hard to do while concentrating on getting the cup in. However, your muscles must be relaxed). I hope this helps!TT

    Amazing product.. I am trying the menstrual cup for the first time and I forgot that I have mensus when i used it… As I am using it first time I have some difficulties to put it inside the vagina and take it back..may be by practice I hope I can do it easily…and I have one more doubt that the product I have purchased is little big…I have purchased large size because I am 38 yrs old and I gave birth to a baby through C Section. ..the company suggested large size for this category…but I am not tall and strong build woman, i am weighing only 52 kg and and ht is only 5ft 2 inch…so may be medium will be more comfortable for me…anyway I can use this Large size also

  5. Moumita Biswas

    This product is a wonder. Absolutely no leakage, no stain, no mess, no wet feeling, no embarrasment, no garbage. Comfortable, regular tap water wash, durable and u can do anything wearing it including swimming.

    As I am 30, medium structured & mom of a 5months old baby (by c section) so I chose Sirona’s Large sized cup which fits me well. It was a bit difficult to insert & take out at first, but few times later it became fine. And once its in, u can’t feel it which frees u from embarrassments of using pads.

    Try it ladies, switch to menstrual cups. Price starts from 250-300 only which u spend on pads for 3months only. It also reduce the garbage of used pad on earth and frees u from the tension of disposal of used pads.
    Very happy with the product.

  6. Neha

    I was thinking to try menstrual cup from long time and finally try this was as it’s cost effective first cycle was ok ok two times it leaked but when I try knowing more about it worked well from next cycle.

  7. Nitu Singh

    using it first time, but i liked it very much. for 2nd day nights we can sleep totally relaxed without any worries of leakage in heavy flow. It is very safe hygenic one – time invest, so buying lots of pad every month is saved. Eco friendly also. Liked it very much. All should try mensuration cups for much comfortable experience than pads

  8. CHitrali

    When I first time read about the mensuration cup i was really very surprised & but could not purchase due to some hesitation of its process to insert . After 2 year & seeing lots of video on you tube i purchased it.
    I am using it for last 4 month , i had c-section before last 5 month so i chose l size cup. I am very happy to using it , in using first time i faced some problem , but now i have learnt how to use it properly and found that Origami Fold Method is much suitable than c-fold method for me.

    I can count few but big benefit of it i.e.

    Cost Effective
    No hassle to dispose the pad (Eco friendly)
    No hassle to keep extra pads to change
    you do not feel any periods (except period cramp).
    You can sleep without fear of stain.
    you can run, swim any other physical activity.

    i think every women should have mensuration cup for their wellness and as well as environment wellness .

    I am writing this after i passed my 2 menstrual cycles. Start was not that comfortable but after numbers of try i must say once you started getting used to it, it will surely change your those gross days of every month for better.
    Every time you go to washroom you are free from the vision n smell of fluid.
    Your nights will be as normal ones. No more fear of leakage or spotting on your clothes or bedsheets… Totally relieved sleep!!!!!
    I had basic sanitary pad for first two days just for safety…. because once cup gets full spotting will start… so you will come know its time to empty the cup.
    No longer feel of fluid coming out ( usally you can feel when you use pads)
    Believe me guys… it will take time to adopt, in starting inserting n removing the cup is a big task… but once you know the technique works for you, you will be happy for this product surely.
    If you have any confusion or query, there are many youtube videos which explain everything in detail.
    Last but not the least its *eco-friendly*!!!!!!
    Just give it a try.

    I am a mother of two in my mid-30s and I just switched to using the cup this month. I am a convert now and am totally willing to recommend it to any and every woman. Yes, it took a lot of effort to overcome the mental block and quite a lot of perseverance and practice in the weeks prior to my period to get it right but I now believe it was worth it. There should be more awareness campaigns about cups. I feel guilty now for contributing to the landfill all these years. There are a lot of videos and resources online on how to wear and what to do. No embarrassment carrying it in travel or hiding it from inquisitive eyes or figuring out how to dispose properly in orthodox families. I will be talking about this openly to every woman I know and I encourage others who were successful in switching to do the same. Together, we can make a difference.

    After using this product for two months, this is a few things I have learnt.
    1) The recommendations for size issued by the company are more or less worth paying attention to. I bought the large size first and then felt it was too big and ordered the medium one. Turns out I was wrong because while the medium went in (too) easily, it also led to leakage in about an hour. The worry about the size was all due to my hesitation in trying something new. So, take your time and relax when trying to insert. Watch tutorials on youtube.
    2) The tail end of the large size cup sticks out a bit for me and was causing discomfort for the first time so I cut it off as suggested in many videos. Immediate comfort. But other problem developed.
    3) The biggest problem for me is taking it out. The ‘pinch the bottom and it will just slide out’ doesnot work for me all. I have to break the seal at the rim. This calls for a bit of a contortionist pose but is not impossible. Again takes time. However, once I chopped off the tail I had nothing to easily grab the bottom of the cup which made matters a bit more lively in the bathroom.
    4) my advice – Do Not Panic in any situation because it is not possible to lose this inside. Just Take Your Time. One cup change in 8 hours is a blessing anyway you see it. No leakage. Only a slight tendency to urinate more whether because it was actually pressing on the bladder or it is in my mind idk. It will take a few more cycles to get used to it completely for sure

  12. Neetu

    I m totally amazed with this product. Initially it was very tough for me to use it. I saw some videos on utube and then finally i made it. But believe me guys its very comfortable , when u insert it properply u ll feel something for a sec but after that u ll be used to it. There’s no leakage almost for 8-10hrs. Just go for it and have pad free periods. 😊

  13. sanju s

    Initially I was quite sceptical to use it. But after using it, I feel quite relaxed and stress free. It’s very comfortable. Much better than the regular sanitary pads !!

  14. John Mehta

    I bought it 2 months back.. Was waiting for my periods.. Now its the right time to review this product..
    This is one of the best thing that has happened in my life.. I’m soo relax.. Earlier 2nd day of my periods was hell but now I feel sooo relaxed.. No tension for pad adjustment.. Nothing.. Please buy this product ladies.. U will surely love it..

  15. …….

    It’s a awesome product as d way it relived a hosh posh of periods is truely admirable.
    I hv got a l size cup as m a woman vd heavy flow on my 2nd day. It sets inside for 6 hrs perfectly. No need 2 use sanitary pads at all. Nor even it gives a feeling of uncomfortable also.
    While removing it u need 2 give a pressure on ur down part in a sitting position n it will be out in a seconds.
    Go 4 it itz super excellent

  16. Ramya Kalyanaraman

    No one that I personally know uses cups and all the women in my life were counselling me against attempting this but I am so happy that I didn’t listen to them. If you can embrace technology in all other facets of your life and upgraded lifestyles then you can be open to a different way to contain your shredded uterine layer than a cloth or a pad.
    As far as this product is concerned- Cost is not prohibitive, material is soft/flexible and design is good that its easy to use.
    General Gyan from my experience-
    Please note, I would definitely only recommend the cup to those used to tampons or have had PV ultrasound- basically anyone who can come around to pushing this inside your own canal. Not for the squeamish.
    Before you buy, analyze the size which will fit best for you. I am 37 and have had babies so I went with an L and I am good with that. Also watch a lot of the menstrual cup related videos on Youtube and read the tips/guidelines available online so you can educate yourself on what is required before you start practicing/using the cup.
    1. Putting it in-
    Wash hands clean & keep nails short. Wash both your cup and privates with warm water so that there is no chafing and soreness due to dryness.
    Try the different folds to see what works for you. Personally the half fold(c-fold) was too wide so I did the roll up of the C and it worked. Please do practice and check what works best for you. I found it easier to position when lying on my back, some others prefer bend and squat so please try what works for you.
    First time it didn’t pop open and second time it did once I pushed it in such that only the tiny part of the stem was out against the labia. Again this will only be determined by you as each canal is distinct in its depth.
    By the time I inserted the third time, I was able it position it without resistance. So remember ladies, “Unclench”!
    2. Using it
    Within 15 mins I lost all weird sensation (it was mostly from my mind anyway) and it felt natural. For the first time rest of me was not wet or having fresh/dried blood smell during a period. Underwear was dry and normal as a non-period day. I also worked, slept and performed all my daily activities with the cup inside, as usual. It had no impact.
    I was so pleased that almost felt like wearing white pants and running in the meadows like those annoyingly chirpy women in the sanitary pad advertisements but the usual cramps and pain grounded me and I retained that grumpy yet murderous mood that most of us human women feel while on the period. Also I am confident enough with the cup that I will go swimming next time.
    3. Pulling it out
    Tip that I found true/useful- during removal you have to pinch the bottom of the cup (above the stem) to release the suction and let it slide out of you. Its easy to pour out and clean. Just have warm water in a clean cup/mug/bowl ready which you can take care of during a bath. Much more odor free a process than disposing a sanitary pad.
    4. Storage for reuse
    The satiny bag they give you isn’t really of great quality (threads started to get wrapped around the cup when I put mine in the bag (Even before I ever used the cup). So I would recommend a sterile, dry, good quality box to keep your cup for your next month. Don’t let anyone else touch it (obviously).

  17. Tinni Ghosh

    May be I am lucky but at the first attempt it fitted my perfectly. No pain as some says. May be the reason is I was using tampons for many years.
    The product is really a blessing. Tampon is also good, comfortable, no feeling of period. But we have to change within 4/5 hours in a heavy flow day. But with this cup I need to empty only 2 times a day. For the first time I didn’t add any harmful garbage to the nature. Overall a wow feeling….
    Every girl should use this. Now its time to be super comfortable in periods.

  18. Kripa Ashok

    Good and easy to use. I was afraid of using it. But once I tried. I’m happy to use it. It keeps me tension free. No need of getting to washroom frequently for changing. Sometime when we are outdoor we cant always use washroom very frequently. And I’m really happy that its environment friendly.

  19. Promita S

    Very very very gd product. Thnks 2 sirona . M in heaven in period time now. I do everything in period like jumping rope. swiming everything😍. Now i wish tht when i was in 1 nd half month period after baby delivery by c section, why anyone could nt suggest it to me 🙄.. bt now m suggesting evry woman 2 use it. U will giv ur freedom. Just use it 2 blv it.

  20. Bandana Sharma

    I was reading about these menstrual cups since long but was feeling a bit skeptical and finally I ordered it thinking that I am going to give it a try. Trust me this is the bestest thing ever if I talk about chums. I got the hold of it in just one use, yes it’s that easy you just have to follow the instructions carefully.

    It’s easy to use and clean.
    It’s environment and pocket friendly.

    I don’t know whether it’s possible or not but will suggest to the manufacturer for trying to make it a bit more soft.

  21. Shalu

    Can’t believe it was out there and I wasn’t using it. Just finished wid my first cycle and this was d best part about my periods. A lil tough wen u try it for d first time but staying calm is d key. Super comfortable and easy to clean. For the sake of d environment, yr pocket and comfort try it once.

  22. abcd

    I had two normal deliveries and i am 33 year old and also medium build( not thin). I bought large cup, taking the guidence from the product description, but it was too big for me and caused pain after inserting it inside. I think indian women body size is smaller relative to the product description and specifications. I think large size of this product will be too big for almost all indian women. Better to choose size m or s.
    Apart from that, the quality is good and the cup is soft and easy to use.

Sirona Menstrual Cups

Sirona’s menstrual cup is a feminine hygiene menstrual product which is fast becoming an alternative to tampons and pads. It is a small, flexible, funnel-shaped reusable product which is made of medical grade silicone.
Depending on the menstrual flow, you can choose from the given three menstrual cup sizes:
  1. Large: Large cup size is recommended for women who are over 25 and have given birth vaginally.
  2. Medium: In case your period flow is a little on the heavier side, you can use the medium sized cup.
  3. Small: If you are a woman below 25 years of age who haven’t given birth vaginally and has a regular menstrual flow, a small cup is recommended.

The flexibility of the cup allows its easy insertion and removal. It is safe to keep the cup in for 8 – 12 hours.

How to put in Menstrual Cup?

Follow these steps to put in the menstrual cup:

  1. First and foremost, wash your hands properly.
  2. Then, fold the menstrual cup in C-fold or punch down fold ( whichever is more convenient for you).
  3. Hold the folded sides firmly in between your thumb and forefinger such that the curved edge is facing away from your palm
  4. In a comfortable position (while standing or squatting), gently insert the cup into your vagina. Ensure that your vaginal muscles are relaxed. It should be placed at a few inches below the cervix.
  5. Rotate the cup once it is in your vagina so that it springs open and creates an airtight seal which would prevent leaks.


Sirona Menstrual Cup How to Use

How to take a Menstrual Cup out?

To take a menstrual cup out:

  1. Ensure that your hands are clean.
  2. After placing your index finger and thumb into the vagina, pull the stem of the cup gently until you reach the base.
  3. Pinch the base of the cup lightly so as to release the seal. Then, pull it down for its removal.
  4. Once the cup is removed, empty its contents into the sink or toilet.

How to Clean a Menstrual Cup?

To clean the cup, you can sterilize it before and after every cycle. To sterilize, simply rinse it normally and then, place it in a pot of water and boil it. While you do that, see to it that it does not sink to the bottom (as it could melt if it comes in contact with the saucepan base). Boil for 2-10 minutes and then remove and allow it to dry.

During your cycle, after removing the cup, empty its contents, wash the cup under cold or warm water and then re-insert it. You may try using a scent free, water-based (oil-free) soap or one of the specially designed menstrual cup wipes or wash options.

Once it is dry, store the cup in the accompanying carry pouch.

What are the benefits of a menstrual cup?

  1. Budget-friendly
  2. Safer
  3. Eco-friendly
  4. Enables swimming even during the menstrual cycle
  5. No rashes
  6. No TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome)
