I got a few requests to review the Pink Cups so I decided to try it.
I tried the large size. The Pink Cup is on the soft side of the scale. It has a unique stem which I was worried about it and is made of medical grade silicone according to their package and website.
The small size is for women under 30 years of age who haven’t had a baby and large size is for all the rest.
Small size: capacity is 15ml, diameter 42mm, length 47mm, stem length 25mm (total length 72mm).
Large size: capacity is 20ml, diameter 45mm, length 50mm, stem length 20mm (total length 70mm).
Their website and the package says that the cup contains no dyes but it is called “Pink Cup” and it is pink/purple in colour. Maybe I don’t know enough about medical grade silicone but it is transparent in colour, at least all of those cups I that I know of.
My experience with the Pink Cup was quite good. The stem that I was worried about didn’t bother me at all. When I inserted it, I had to help it pop open but for me it’s not an issue and I didn’t feel it. Removing it was also a good experience. If I need to sum up my experience with it, the Pink Cup was pleasant to deal with, but I am not going to use it again.
Why? It doesn’t have FDA approval which is quite important for me. If I put something in my vagina for so many hours, I want to make sure it is safe. The second reason is that I have no idea where it is made. I have looked on the package and went to their website and there is no reference to where this cup is manufactured.
The last thing I want to mention, I might be called fussy here, but it has a smell. That particular smell that you smell when you enter a shop with products from China. Well it kind of stayed after I have sterilized it and during use. It got better with time but I am not sure how I feel about it. Those things are important to me therefore I won’t use it again.
A last word, from my experience, women with heavy bleeding will find this capacity quite small.
** Please note that these reviews are based on my own experience and are therefore my own opinion. I would also like to mention that we are all shaped differently and if something didn’t work well for me it doesn’t mean that it won’t work for you.
