Monthly Freedom

All women can relate to certain challenging aspects of “that time of the month.” Intimina’s ingenious Lily Cup Compact has a collapsible design that folds into a petite case about the size of lip balm—discreet enough to take anywhere. So you’ll always be prepared and have more freedom. Inspired by collapsible drinking cups discovered during a trip to Japan and made of extra-thin medical grade silicone, Lily Cup Compact is easy to insert and comfortable enough to forget about. Toxin-free and safe, it won’t leave fibers behind or dry out sensitive areas. We admit switching to a menstrual cup takes some practice and adjustment. But really it’s no more difficult to “learn” than when you first started using tampons. With up to 10 hours of protection, Lily Cup Compact lasts for years and keeps disposable feminine products out of landfills. And your wallet benefits, too—Lily Cup Compact pays for itself within a few short months.

    Hi everyone this is Angie from Intimina. I’m here to answer any questions you might have.

    Lily Cup Compact is a revolutionary new menstrual cup that fits into a case no bigger than a tin of lip balm so it can be easily and discreetly carried around in your purse or pocket. As small as it is, one Lily Cup Compact can do the job of 1625 tampons!

    Hi Andrea.

    This is how a menstrual cups works: You fold the cup, you insert it into the vagina similar to how you would with a non-applicator tampon. It opens up and forms a light seal with the vaginal walls which hold it in place. After a number of hours you remove the cup, empty it and wash it. After its washed you reinsert it, there is no need to have a second cup.

    Lily Cup Compact can be cleaned with warm water and a mild soap and rinsed well. In between periods some women like to boil their cup for an extra clean.

    I know it looks a little intimidating at first but the silicone is very soft and flexible and once its inserted you can't feel it at all. Its completely comfortable.

    Because I routinely carry around a backpack purse space is not really an issue for me, but if I were traveling or in school a compact cup would be GREAT!

    Size B:is recommended for women who have given birth vaginally or for those who have a weaker pelvic floor

    @Lori

    For your teenage daughter we definitely recommend size A regardless of her heavy flow. She will need to change the cup quite frequently on the heavy days but this size is best for her.

    The obvious difference is that Lily Cup Compact is reusable and therefore more eco-friendly and economical. The other great thing about being reusable is that you can never run out of them, your cup is either in use or in its case in your bag. No more emergencies!

    Lily Cup Compact is also inserted and removed in a different way to a disposable cup because of its shape. I would image that the disposables are a bit messier to remove than a more stable silicone cup.

    If you have to empty your menstrual cup in a public bathroom with no access to a private sink you can just empty the cup, wipe it out with tissue and reinsert or take a bottle of water with you into the stall for rinsing. You can wash it properly at the next convenient time.

    @Melanie i've used the cup for about 6 months now. I work full time outside the home so I've emptied it at work. Truth be told, when i'm out I empty and reinsert. It's not like tampons/pads. On my heaviest day I usually only have to deal with it 1 time during the work day. It's not like i'm back and forth to the ladies room.

    On a regular flow day I don't have to empty it during the work day at all.

    Lily Cup Compact, like other reusable cups, are held in place by the vaginal walls and actually forms a light seal that prevents leaks. When positioned correctly Lily Cup Compact shouldn't leak at all.

    I don't have first hand experience but as I understand it a disposable cup is held a at different angle and by the pubic bone, so quite different. I think that Lily Cup Compact could definitely perform better for you.

    I am very sorry...but this is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen for women. I would never use anything but PADS. The idea of putting something like this inside of me..completely inside no less, is dangerous. As a medical professional for over 40 years, I have seen enough of this type of injury in women....starting with the use of tampons which I also do not believe in. Putting this thing inside of a human body is NOT SMART. And don't tell me that it is not possible to be UNABLE to remove it...which would require a trip to the ER. I have seen plenty of THAT too with this type of product. This is NOT a good idea and any woman who would ever use this product is taking a big risk. Pads, are much SAFER. They have improved over the years with much more comfort. They may be messy...but this cup thing is even messier. YUCK. Having to remove it which I would find extremely difficult for anyone to do without something sticking out to grab hold of, is NOT a good thing. I urge women everywhere to think long and hard before ever trying to use something like this.

    We understand that menstrual cups aren't for everyone.Some women are not comfortable putting something inside their body but they are safe to use.

    The FDA recognizes menstrual cups as safe for use and they have been in commercial use for many years without any serious adverse effects. Lily Cup Compact is made from 100% medical grade silicone with color pigment approved by the FDA for use in medical devices. They have also been extensively tested for body safety.

    On vacation last year unfortunately my period started the same day of our sailing/snorkeling trip. Tampons were useless once I got in the water and it was a nightmare to manage during the sail trip. Is the Lily Cup safe to use in a salt-water environment, and will it still work properly with lots of physical activity -- kicking, diving, climbing boat ladders? And while I am very petite, I'm assuming after 3 births a size B would be recommended or should I just go with the size closest to my diaphragm? I never knew anything like this existed, so curious to see if it might be an option for my circumstances. Thanks!

    The Lily Cup Compact is great for using during water sports and swimming and salt water is no different. There is no absorption and no string to go escaping! The stiffer silicone of the rim and the seal that is created keeps the cup in place while you are moving around. I have used it on a snorkeling trip myself recently and it was great. I also use it during yoga and running and it works brilliantly.

    Yes we would recommend size B for you. Thanks for your interest.

    Hi Patricia,

    Some women can feel that the cup gets a bit 'heavy' feeling when it is full but also, as you get used to using a menstrual cup, you learn how long you can go between empties on each day of your period. We suggest when you first start using Lily Cup Compact that you empty it after 4 hours on the first day, if it wasn't very full next time wait 5 hours and so on until you work out what is right for you.

The launch day conversation has ended. Please direct further questions about this Grommet to our Community Experience Team.

I urge women everywhere to think long and hard before ever trying to use something like this.

    We understand that menstrual cups aren't for everyone.Some women are not comfortable putting something inside their body but they are safe to use.

    The FDA recognizes menstrual cups as safe for use and they have been in commercial use for many years without any serious adverse effects. Lily Cup Compact is made from 100% medical grade silicone with color pigment approved by the FDA for use in medical devices. They have also been extensively tested for body safety.

    @Angie To Sandra's point, this product is not dissimilar to diaphragms, which many women have used successfully and safely. This is a great idea. I no longer need this type of product, but I, too, was a big fan of Tassaways.

    These were out for a short time in the 70's and I absolutely LOVED them. I am so excited they are back. They are amazing. NO leaking, comfortable, no order, no worries!

    On vacation last year unfortunately my period started the same day of our sailing/snorkeling trip. Tampons were useless once I got in the water and it was a nightmare to manage during the sail trip. Is the Lily Cup safe to use in a salt-water environment, and will it still work properly with lots of physical activity -- kicking, diving, climbing boat ladders? And while I am very petite, I'm assuming after 3 births a size B would be recommended or should I just go with the size closest to my diaphragm? I never knew anything like this existed, so curious to see if it might be an option for my circumstances. Thanks!

    The Lily Cup Compact is great for using during water sports and swimming and salt water is no different. There is no absorption and no string to go escaping! The stiffer silicone of the rim and the seal that is created keeps the cup in place while you are moving around. I have used it on a snorkeling trip myself recently and it was great. I also use it during yoga and running and it works brilliantly.

    Yes we would recommend size B for you. Thanks for your interest.

    How do you know when it needs to be emptied?

    Hi Patricia,

    Some women can feel that the cup gets a bit 'heavy' feeling when it is full but also, as you get used to using a menstrual cup, you learn how long you can go between empties on each day of your period. We suggest when you first start using Lily Cup Compact that you empty it after 4 hours on the first day, if it wasn't very full next time wait 5 hours and so on until you work out what is right for you.
