With the large selection of menstrual cups manufactured today, it is difficult to know which one will work for you the way you need it to. That is why it is so important for you to know all the details and facts of a single brand menstrual cups before committing to a purchase or wasting your time on a feminine hygiene product that is not particularly suited for your unique needs.

The Intimina Lily Cup and the Lily Cup Compact menstrual cups are manufactured in Sweden. They are the only collapsible menstrual cups to be produced currently and are very highly acclaimed for their overall ability to deliver comfortable period protection to women who choose menstrual cups in alternative to other feminine sanitary products. So let’s see how they rate by female consumers who have used them previously and swear that the Lily cup menstrual cups are better than the rest of the brands available.

 

 

Intimina Lily Cup Specs and Features

The Intimina Lily Cup menstrual cups like most menstrual cups are a medical device used to collect menstrual fluid that is inserted into a female’s vagina. In option to other types of products that supply period protection they are reusable, eco-friendly, and much safer.

The Lily cup is made out of a medical-grade silicone that is tested, tried, and approved on many credible accounts. Additionally, they bare no health risks and provide women with a ”personal freedom” that makes them extremely beneficial to women familiar with use of menstrual cups as a feminine hygiene practice during the time of menstruation.

 

 

What Makes the Lily Cup Different than Other Menstrual Cups?

There are many features of the Intimina Lily Cup that makes them very different than other menstrual cups offered by a variety of manufacturers:

  • Come in 2 models and 2 sizes each – Lily Cup (2 sizes A,B) & Lily Cup Compact (2 sizes A,B)
  • Is the ONLY collapsible menstrual cup – All models of the Lily cup & Lily Cup Compact are can be folded as thin as a tampon (meaning they are very flexible and compact for ease with removal, insertion, and overall use.) However the Lily Cup compact is so compact it can be collapsed to accommodate easy storage in a compact case.
  • Helps maintain PH balance for better intimate health – The Lily Cups offer you a healthy choice in period protection that is non-irritating, that won’t cause vaginal infections, and that won’t cause uncomfortable dryness.

Choosing the Right Lily Cup in the Right Size

The original lily cup menstrual cup by Intimina is well-liked by some and hated by others. However, out of the two product models offered by Intimina, people appear to prefer the Lily Cup Compact over the Lily Cup.

Note: The Lily Cup holds a higher capacity of fluid (28ml Size A, 32 ml Size B) than the Lily Cup Compact (18ml Size A, 23 ml Size B.)

What Customer’s Say About Intimina Lily Cups

Intimina Lily cups have received mixed good and bad reviews from what we could find. However, it is apparent that this product has not reached the number level of consumers that some of the other USA menstrual cup brands.

“Design- had a good browse through all the different makes and thought this was by far the best design. No holes near the top, no writing or marks so super smooth, a front and back- not just circular, a lip to keep fluid inside and a ‘spine’ to make insertion easy.” (Amazon.com)

“Worst cup EVER. Also if u are set on buying this piece of junk. Again, this cup is awful. Buy a lunette, or even the miacup or meluna. This thing is useless.” (Amazon.com)

    I wanted to love the lily cup compact product! I tried and tried for several cycles but unfortunately this cup leaks! It wasn’t an issue of being overly full either. I tried every method of insertion. It just doesn’t open up once inserted inside. I even contacted customer service asking if I could try the other style, the original as I thought the compact was folding up inside of me, but they responded no they would not let me try it, I would have to purchase it. Total waste of money and I will be trying a different company who stands behind their product satisfaction 100% guaranteed.

    - CONS: Too expensive Product doesn't actually work Bad customer service

    I have a very high cervix so i decided to go for the Lily Cup Classic. It’s very soft so it was quite hard for me to make it fully open once inside in the beginning. But after a few trials with different folds (ie punch down fold and tampon fold), i found that the origami fold is the most effective one for me. That fold enables the shorter spine to pop the cup open once inside. It still leaked but just very little, like 1 drop of blood and then that was it. It was able to hold my blood for a good 12 hrs. I am happy with this cup!

    If I could give the Lily Cup size B a zero star rating I would. Do not buy this product. It was a major waste of my money. Like most, I bought this product because I wanted a solution to a period that wasn’t a monthly cost and would keep me dry at night. Once I bought this I thought my worries were over, because it professed to be a 12 hour cup. No such luck. It leaked all the time, even with the one time I got it to seal out of two menstrual cycles. Yes, I stayed with it for two cycles just in case it was my inexperience that accounted for the leaking. It was even worse at night like there might as well not have been anything to catch it at all. I purchased the size B because I have had children vaginally, and so it was not an issue in size.

    In addition to it leaking it hurt a lot especially at night. This is not a product of comfort. It would always ride up higher than it was supposed to, no matter how hard I tried to get it to pop open. With that being said the stem is so much worse than a tampon string in that it always feels like it’s getting snagged on something for the brief 3 minutes that is wasn’t riding uncomfortably high. I also dared not trim that stem any shorter than recommended in case I couldn’t get it out of me. Things that are to be considered reusable should be consumer friendly in being easy to use. Sadly this was not.

    Ever since breaking my hymen with another brand of menstrual cup I thought I would just stick to pads. They were safe, and didn’t leave me in the bathroom shamefully calling my sister to help me remove what might has well have been a light bulb out of my genital regions. needless to say she did not, she coached me from the other side of the door and 30 min later *pop.* It was over for me, and there was blood all over the walls. I considered seeing counseling for menstrual cup PTSD.

    But then, my sister introduced me to the Lily cup which turned out to be a less traumatic. without a hymen it seems to just slip right in no muss no fuss. After a couple of cycles I figured out how to pee with it in. Now I’m a menstrual cup wearing while peeing pro. Thank you Lily Cup!

    I have been using the normal cup size A for 3 days and it leaks – I’ve read the directions several times and have tried everything. I actually hear it “pop” when inserting it and when I pull down on the stem, I can feel the suction – so the seal is there. Does anyone have any advice?

    On the positive side, I’m surprised how easy the insertion and removal is!

    Thanks in advance for any advice 🙂

    I’ve never used any other menstrual cup before so I can’t provide a comparison. That being said, here’s my review…
    I’ve been using Lily Cup compact Size A for 2 months now. As a first time user it’s not really intuitive how to insert it & the directions, while explanatory, didn’t quite explain enough. Luckily, I had a friend who had been using a menstrual cup for a while & she gave me a couple of hints: 1) Whichever form/method you use to insert it, it makes it much easier, and more comfortable, if you move it in a rocking/circular motion (this also holds true when removing it) 2. Bear down (like a BM) when taking it out & (try) to pinch the bottom to lessen the suction

    My favorite things about this product:
    1) I can easily keep it in my pocket or purse when not in use
    2) I can sleep naked with my husband all the time
    3) I’m allergic to most tampons & no longer have to deal with the mess, odor, or (and this is the technical term) swamp butt that comes along with using pads; which in turn seems to cause something akin to diaper rash if I’m not careful about keeping it (my butt) dry
    4) I wear underwear as little as possible & this gives me even more freedom in this; this is especially important if I’ve recently groomed my lady parts, aka vagina, hooha, squish mitten, etc., which is what is what prompted me to write this review today
    5) If you’ve read this far, you can probably assume I’ve had no problems with leaks

    Things I don’t like about this product:
    1) Poor insertion & removal directions
    2) I experience some pain with insertion & removal – I wasn’t going to add this but I saw some other’s experienced a similar issue. In fairness, I’m not confident that the discomfort is related to the product itself, especially as I have never tried another brand or type of cup

    I have recommended this product to friends & will continue to do so

    I was extremely disappointed with this product. I purchased it after using a Diva cup for years, so I feel like I know how menstrual cups work. However, I had two major issues with the Intimina, even after nearly 6 months of experimenting with it. First, it created a painful suction to my cervix regardless of how I inserted it. I looked on several forums to see if I was using it incorrectly, even inserting it so low that they stem hung out, but it always migrated up and formed the painful suction that made it difficult and painful to remove. I wonder if the design would be improved if holes were punched in it like the Diva cup? The second issue is that the cup always leaked. I didn’t have a single use that didn’t leak, and more than once it leaked so much that it soaked my underwear while I was at work. It seemed odd that it could be so tightly attached and still leak so much.

    Clearly I was not inserting it correctly, but I read and re-read the directions, looked for advice on help forums, and have used a menstrual cup for years. Perhaps it shouldn’t be so difficult to wear correctly.

    I went out and bought another Diva cup this morning after three more frustrating days with the Intimina, and immediately the leaking and painful discomfort stopped.

    I am so surprised how well this works! I was expecting a few months of learning how to do it right and a few leaks but so far it has worked perfectly for 3 months use! I actually like getting my period now as it is not such a hassle. I am not worrying about toxic sanitary products in my body. I can easily see that I am healthy by seeing the colour and consistency of the blood coming from my body.
    It rolls up really small… Takes me like 5 seconds to insert and check position. Perfect!

    I I I was. I was a part of the Kickstarter for Intimina; I receive my Lily cup but never used it because my menstruation abruptly stopped. I thought that maybe I was in menopause so I placed this in my bathroom and had forgotten about it until yesterday. My periods are back in full force for a few months, so I decided to give the Lily cup a try. I had no problems placing this menstruation cup in place and was able to wear it for eight hours. I really forgot that I was wearing it. I had no problems removing it and I was amazed that I had no leakage and no discomfort. I wore it the next day to work and again, no issues at all with leakage or discomfort. I am in my 50’s and if I had no issues with this product, I bet other women will not have problems as well. I feel ‘free’ for the first time; I do not have to use tampons (which were uncomfortable), pads, etc. I will be recommending this product to my 30 years old daughter as well as to my two granddaughters.

    I think I got it figured out. If you insert it, right when you just push it into the vaginal opening and try to pop it open, if you bear down, like your having a bowel movement, at the same time your twisting it to open it up, it will open up much easier. I still feel a bit of cramping with it, but it’s much better now that I don’t push it in as far.

    This thing hurts. I had the same problem with the Diva cup because I was trying to push it in too far to avoid getting poked by the stem. I removed the stem, didn’t push the cup as far in and it made all the difference. I tried cutting off as much as I could with this one, and not pushing it in as far, but it still hurts.

    First off, I need to admit that up until about a month ago, the idea of menstrual cups grossed me out big time. I’m 40, and for whatever reason, I had this hangup about it – it’s probably partly an American thing, we seem to be pretty behind the times when it comes to our bodies.

    I saw a review for the Lily Cup while link-jumping on YouTube – the unique shape caught my attention, and after watching just one very detailed review, I knew I needed to try it. I read up on how to measure my cervix, and it seemed mine was pretty high, so I decided to give it a whirl. I ordered a size B.

    The cup itself is incredibly smooth, soft silicone. It isn’t terribly rigid, like some of the other cups appear to be, but at the same time it feels solid and well-made. The stem is pretty long, but I am apparently cavernous, so it works for me even untrimmed.

    Yesterday morning I was spotting lightly as I usually do for a day or so in the beginning, so figured I’d use it. I wasn’t leaving the house, so I didn’t worry about backup in case of leaks even though I’ve read that it can take a few days to get the hang of it. Insertion was pretty easy – it popped right open and felt secure.

    Removal was also very easy as a first-timer; the silicone is very pliable and a small pinch of the base is enough to release the suction. When I took it out in the evening, I was very surprised to discover that I’d completely skipped over light spotting day and jumped straight into heavy flow, as I assumed I would have had SOME leakage on the first try.

    I wore it overnight with no leaks, and used it again today when I went to the office; I wore a small pantyliner just in case, but 6 am to 4 pm and not a single trace of leakage.

    I am completely sold – now I need to pack up all the disposable products taking up space in my bathroom cabinet and donate them to our local shelter or something, because I certainly won’t be using them again!

    I love this compact cup so much. I’ve been using it for a year and a half now after my sister bought me one before I went travelling. It was incredible whilst I was on the road. Saved me so much money and space. I still use it every month now and wouldn’t go back. Last month I used a tampon as my period came on early and I didn’t have the cup with me, and it irritated me so much. Honestly made my period even more awkward than normal, so I’ve learnt my lesson and will stick the one and only Lily Compact Cup!!

    Wearing it, you honestly don’t feel a thing. Inserting it, takes some getting used to the knack of it but now it seriously takes me like 5 seconds. Taking it out, I have a very high cervix so finding it can be a little tricky but once again, once you get the hang of it and know what to look for, this becomes super quick and easy.

    Have already recommended this to all my friends and would do so for anyone who possesses a uterus!

    Cannot thank Intimina enough for the Compact! I used Lunette and found it too firm, but this cup is so squishy and I can’t feel it. Purchased it after seening Meghan Tonjes’s video review and so happy in first cycle with it.

    Why are Intimina soooo far down on the list of cups?? seems not fair!

    I purchased the original lily cup size A. This is after trying the diva cup for a few months. The diva cup was great but a bit stiff for my taste. I also had the problem of it pushing up against my bladder and problems urinating with it in. I decided to give the lily cup a try after reading that it is a softer cup, shaped to eliminate bladder discomfort. It works perfectly! No more problems urinating, I’ve have zero leaks with the lily cup and it is just made out of excellent silicone. I wish I could rank this product better than 5 stars. The capacity for this cup is pretty similar to the diva cup, which is on the higher end of menstral cups without getting too big. Inserting and removing the lily cup is pretty similar to the diva cup. I had no problems.

    I use the size A cup and it’s wonderful. The first two times using it were extremely uncomfortable but it didn’t take long to make sure I had the right fit. The stem was too long so I cut a small portion of it off which helped tremendously with comfort. Removing the cup took practice but the no spill rim works very well and I have no catastrophic stories of spilling it.

    This was my first cup, after seeing the Kickstarter campaign commercial convinced me to take the leap. I recommend it as a first cup because of its size and the discreet compact. The compact is great for travel or to have on hand for the unexpected. The silicone is super soft and luxurious, but I feel like after a few months of using it as my primary cup, the silicone started to weaken a bit where it collapses – I could no longer render a sturdy punch-down fold and had to switch to a C-fold. I’d recommend this as a starter cup and as a travel/emergency cup. Other than that issue, I love it and think it’s a great cup! I keep it in my purse just in case, but use another cup as my primary cup now.

    I have the lily compact size B, I love this cup. I’m only giving if 4.5 stars due to the lower capacity of the compact. I think this is a great cup for anyone to start with as it can accomodate a low cervix as well as normal to high.

    This is a life changer. In May it will be a whole year since the first time I used my lily cup, and a whole year since I ditched the tampons and pads. I no longer stress when that time of the month hits. My periods are more than three days shorter, my flow is much lighter, and my cramps are nothing compared to the pains I experienced before discovering menstrual cups. Change your life for the better. Invest in a lily cup. Live healthy and happy!

    Very dramatic learning curve with this cup but I absolutely love it. I have the normal lilycup A. The silicone is lovely, smooth and easy to insert. It’s a long cup which is ideal for my super high cervix and it’s just the best thing! I will never go back to anything but!

    (Non-collapsible version, small size) Actually terrible to use. Needs to be inserted in a specific direction which is difficult to accomplish. I had an exceptionally hard time getting it to form as seal and it leaked like crazy compared to my Sckoon cup. Was very soft and nice in terms of texture, folded easily, too, but didn’t seem to pop open once inserted as easily as others. Was really disappointed in how well it worked—I had high hopes for it.

    Started using the Lily Cup 4 months ago after years of using tampons. I think it is a brilliant invention and all young women should be educated in using them.

    Love this cup! Love that it is compact and comes with a cute case. I have no cramping with this cup. Its just amazing no leaks and no mess. The thing I like the most is that I cant feel it at all its so soft and comfortable I dont even know that I am on my period!

    I’m only 16, but have struggled with very heavy periods for the last few years, after being told they would ‘settle down’ and ‘lighten up’. After quitting sports all together after an embarrassing moment with a tampon, my doctor suggested I try this as a new alternative. I went straight for the dark pink Lily cup for heavier flows, and after using it for the last year, I am delighted! I can confidently leave it in for at least 6 hours, and the Lily cup compact will last about 4 on my heaviest days. Finally, I took up running again, and recently ran for North England, while on my period ?Thank you intimina, you have given me back my old life, and I love it!

    Love my Lily cup, i’m 26, never had a vaginal birth but have a high cervix and this cup fits me perfectly. It’s long in length, which is perfect for me as I find smaller cups like the Lunette travel too high for me to reach the stem to pull them back out.

    I had a “Keeper” many years ago, which was fine but I was never really in love with. Partially because I worked in an office where the bathroom stalls to sink situation did not allow for the cup to be rinsed before re-insertion, but long hours and a long commute always put me over the naximum wear time till it should be emptied. While I loved the concept of the menstrual cup, the new to me, I seized using it after about 10 months.

    Recently a YouTuber I follow showed one of those “What’s in…” videos and when she pointed to a flat pink disc commenting “my menstrual cup”, I was intrigued enough to research it. And bought it, the Lily Cup Compact A to be exact.

    Finally I got to wear my Lily Cup Compact for the first time. The first insertion was a total breeze and not the ridiculous drama I expected after reading so many reviews everywhere saying getting the soft cup to open and seal took serious effort. Maybe I lucked out, but every time I emptied it since removal and reinsertion was easy.Now I honestly did not know where I fall into as to light to heavy flow, as my period has always been all over the map. Some months it is barely there but lasts longer, other months it is heavy flow but only a few days plus spotting before and after and sometimes it is a mix. On a heavy day, I did have some overflow, caught by a pantyliner, so 10 hours are not feasible on those days. Instead of buying another cup, the practical minimalist in me says I will continue using it, just empty it every 4/5 hours on those days. Nighttime was not a problem, even on those days.
    I will be traveling internationally next month and likely have my period on the travel day. Despite if yhe above, I will use the Lily Cup Compact and am confident it will be no problem, even thought I may have to empty it more than normal. I have sanitizing wipes with me in the bathrooms on airports/planes anyway, so no problem.

    While it has been years since my first menstrual cup run, I do remember that the “Keeper” never was this comfortable to the point that I did not feel it AT ALL. I found the insertion a bit uncomfortable sometimes, as it was a lot more rigid. I had no leaks then, but remember the feared removal problems several times throughout the entire timeframe.

    I confidently give 5 stars and am determined to make this one work for me, even with a few tweaks where needed. If you ALWAYS have a heavy flow, I do have to say you should probably steer away from the compact. If you never know what you get, like me, I recommend it.

    I love this product a lot it is very useful and nice that you don’t have to change a tampon every 2 hours. It is comfortable and easy to insert but a slight bit hard to take out, you will get it after some twisting it takes practice ( I started using it today). Overall it’s good for the environment and saves money!!

    This was my first menstrual cup and I will never go back to tampons or pads!

    Pros:
    I have the compact size A (smaller size) and I can carry it around in the discreet compact case with me in case my period comes early

    I can insert it when I am expecting my period before it comes to collect it without concern that I may get TSS and guard against ‘accidents!’

    Even on my heavy days I can wear it at least 12 hours, on my light days I can wear it 24 hours.

    Easy to clean and manage-I clean it with Dr Bronners between insertions and boil it for 10min at the end of my cycle.

    No worrying about fragrances or non organic products messing up my PH. It’s nice to know how much my body produces and what goes in and comes out.

    No personal odor! Tampons always have an odor, even when it’s fragrance free. Menstrual cups don’t have an odor at all.

    Cons:
    The first time I wore it, I didn’t check to see if it had ‘sealed’ and it leaked. Lesson learned and I haven’t had an issue since.

    The first time I wore it, I tried to push it past the ’12 hour max’ on my heavist day-it got to max capacity and it leaked. I now respect the 12 hour mark on my heavy days and push it to 24 hours only on my light days. No problems since and it’s nice to not have to change on my light days.

    It was a bit of a learning curve trying to insert the compactat the beginning-it sometimes collapsed while I was trying to situate it. It may have been easier with one that didn’t collapse, but watching the videos helped me figure out which fold worked best for me (C-fold) .

    I didn’t like this cup at all. I felt like the whole body of the cup was too long for me and because of the design it can’t really be made any shorter. I think this goes to show that different cups do work different for different anatomies but it was a waste of money for me.

    My first menstral cup was a lily cup. It’s very comfortable, the silicone is super soft and it has been East to insert and remove

    I’ve had this cup for 8 months now and it is my first cup. It took some getting used to before I could get it in the right place without any leaking. But now I love this thing! I can admit that I’ve lost it up there twice… for some reason my body wanted to swallow the thing but it doesn’t do that anymore. I’ve become more aware of how far to insert it and how frequent I should take it out… and that definitely helps. I can say that I was a first a pad user, then I grew to tampons but I use to have an odor before and after my period. I can say that I HAVENT HAD ANY ODOR issues with this cup. I feel cleaner and fresher than even and I’m super happy!

    I really really wanted this cup to be my go-to one.
    Firstly, the silicone is so very velvety soft and insertion is a breeeeeze. The stem is way too long though and even though I cut it, still sticks out and/or into me… I had to push it to the side inside of me or else it would stick out and be uncomfortable. Well, it is so soft that it is hard to tell if it’s opened or not and getting the seal for me proved… unreliable. There were a few times when I really thought I’d had it! I went about my day, running etc… and then later, come to find out it’s just all going down the sides… wasn’t coming out, but wasn’t going inside the cup…. ended up messy. I tried so many times to see what I was doing wrong, what the trick was… perhaps it’s just too floppy and I wasn’t able to get enough air in with it to make the seal correct. Insertion and removal is easy enough so trying many times didn’t bother me, I just really wanted it to work. I will try again next cycle. I do like the feel, but the shape, the stem, these things seemed to not work for me, at least for now…. I ended up by far preferring the Lily Compact… which worked every time, no messes and gave a perfect seal. Perhaps it’s the air holes! ? That every single other cup has. I’ve heard of some women putting air holes into the Lily Cup, but am not sure where or how. Any suggestions???
