CupTalk: WOW Freedom Menstrual Cup – A Review

I’ve been a menstrual cup user for over two years now. There have been a few misadventures but nothing so bad as to deter me from using this wonderful product. This is truly a product that has changed my life in meaningful ways. Earlier this year, I bought two new cups, having made certain critical decisions about my body based on past usage.

The first of these was the WOW Freedom cup in a Size:L with a stem. My previous cup was a Size:M unstemmed and had turned inside me causing some discomfort and frequent leakage. So I decided to go up a size (yay for body-positivity, down with body-shaming!). In addition, I decided that I like having the safety net of a stem which keeps the cup from turning. Here’s my unboxing video of the WOW Freedom cup:

In the six months since then, I’ve used the cup in different ways. I’ve tried it when I’m not having my period. I’ve tried different insertion methods. I’ve tested it on different period days as well as for longer time durations to check capacity. I’ve also worn it while swimming. And here’s my review of the WOW Freedom Cup:

Here are the salient points of my review:

  • Aesthetics: No discolouration after over 3 periods of use. It’s easy to clean.
  • Insertion: Easy to insert and lock into place; no pain or discomfort
  • Positioning: Is soft enough to adapt to the vaginal passage shape but once fixed does not move
  • Leakage: None at all
  • Removal: Slides out smoothly with stem making it easy to pull out

I’m keen to hear your stories if any, with menstrual cups. If you have questions about menstrual cup usage, drop me a comment below or inbox me on the XXFactor Facebook Page or the S3xonomicsBand Facebook Page. I’ll do my best to answer, based on my experience. Have a (truly) happy period!

  1. Can i use if i have low cervix

    • @Beena: I haven’t seen anything online to say that it will be a problem. I’m guessing your cup will sit lower inside you then and that’s still enough to be able to catch the menstrual discharge. The best thing would be to check with your gynac about whether there are any additional things to keep in mind to avoid discomfort or pain.
