This is my second purchase of Imse Vimse Pads. I had some for almost ten years and they are great. Showing their age, I decided to get new ones. Nice to see some new designs on still very good product.
I am very happy to have come across this site. I couldn't find a cup that worked after I'd had my child and have almost given up. But after very good advice from the period lady team, I ordered the soft saalt cup and it works perfectly well. I would very much recommend this cup and this website.
Bought this for my daughter and it's really a lovely swimming costume. Great fit and has worked really well her. Gave her the confidence to swim during her period.
Arrived super quickly too.
I've used a cup for about 6/7 years, but since my second child, I just didn't find it so comfortable. I swapped to a Saalt cup, which fitted much better - but I found the suction quite painful/it took a lot of fiddling to get sitting right.
I was a bit reluctant to try another product as I wasn't sure if it would be much better... but I had a council voucher so decided to go for it. I love the Saalt brand, so that was an easy choice. I was a bit anxious about fitting the disc, but actually, it's so easy. Easier than a cup I would say - It just slides in and I push it back/up past the pubic bone.
Another concern was how messy it would be to remove, but actually, the little hook makes it quite easy to slide out and mess was fairly well contained.
But the huuuuge pro for me was that I literally had no idea I was wearing it. It was so comfortable I could have forgotten it was in. It didn't move once. And no leaks.
I don't think I'll be going back to my cups in a hurry!
Great for cleaning your cup, super easy. I use it for my nixit disk and it *just* fits inside
My daughter is very happy with this swim suit so far. She has only worn it once but it fits well and there were no leaks.
Bought for my daughter who had temporarily misplaced her existing Nixit and this company had UK stock and fast delivery. Having previously suffered with painful, heavy periods, my daughter has found the shape of the Nixit ideal for her - when using it she gets far less cramping and pain, and much more moderate flow. She has previously used a different shaped menstrual cup as well as tampons and now swears by her Nixit I'm sure different products suit different people, but this has been a real life enhancer for my daughter.
I am on the copper IUD and found that my flow was too heavy for a moon cup. The Nixit menstrual disc works amazingly. No need to wear a pad while using it like I previously had too with the moon cup. Feels way more comfortable than a tampon/ reusable pads. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to cut out disposal period products but previously couldn't bc of their heavy flow!
Iíve purchased a Fanny Paddams liner about 2 months ago and have used it a fair bit since. Iím really happy with the quality and the design of the product. Itís comfortable to wear, it stays put and doesnít slide around. I also really like the colourful and bright designs. Itís perfect as a pantry liner on lighter days or paired with a cup as a backup.
Thanks for making my vulva so happy. I shudder when I think back to the days I had sweaty, chemical laden plastic pressed up against it for a few days each month. Cloth is so much more comfortable and good for the environment as a bonus! Red rags are fantastic quality. The fleece backing really helps them stay put. Great absorbency. I like the 10in for a regular day and the 8in for a light day - my flow medium. I can also sleep in the 10in but might get myself one or two 12in for the first heaviest nights. And they are pretty to boot, treat yourself!
I picked the lunette after doing a questionnaire on put a cup in it and am really happy with my choice. I donít feel it once itís in, and itís survived going for runs and quite an energetic fitness class.
I struggled the first time I put it in because Iíd been using a tampon just before, which meant I was a bit dry. I havenít had any issues since.
I've used the mooncup for years and love it. I have heavy periods and no longer have the same unpleasant problems with dryness and itching that I used to have with super absorbance tampons. Period pains also seem to be less with moon cup.
