The Green Cup of Maine ® Menstrual Cup Review

This page is available in:

The Green Cup of Maine is marketed as an environmentally friendly, reusable cup, just like most every other non-disposable menstrual cup out there. However, the Green Cup is made in the USA in an ISO-certified factory. That means it meets standardized requirements when it comes to the production of this class of product, unlike menstrual cups that are made in China where much of the production is unregulated. This cup isn’t green in color, in fact, it’s only available in clear. That’s because it’s dye-free in an effort to keep this cup as pure as possible.

This cup is made from Class VI, medical/healthcare-grade silicone. The material is FDA-approved. It doesn’t have latex, BPAs, dyes or rubber. This cup has a rounded stem for comfort. No more getting poked by a jagged menstrual cup stem!

This might be more detail than you need, but this cup is made in the same facility that produces the Casco Cup. The two cups are eerily similar, in fact.

You can get a Green Cup in a small or large size.  Green Cup’s literature says that most women can wear the large or small equally well. They recommend the small size for light flow and the large size for heavy menstrual flow. Unfortunately, I can’t find measurements or capacity information for the Green Cup, so if you know the exact capacity you need, there’s no way to confirm that this cup will fit the bill unless you buy the cup and try it for yourself.

How to use the Green Cup 

Green Cup insertion. To insert the Green Cup, follow the usual instructions for using menstrual cups, as follows: Fold your cup to make it smaller for insertion. You can sit, stand, squat or place your leg on the seat of the toilet or other raised surface. Try to relax and move aside your labia with your free hand. Point the cup toward your backbone as you place it into the vagina. Once it’s in place, release your hold on the cup, and it will unfold inside. Many women like to give their menstrual cup a twist to make sure it’s formed a leak-proof seal.

Green Cup removal. Wash your hands before removing your Green Cup. Again, taking some deep breaths and relaxing will help. Find the base of the cup using your fingers. Don’t pull out on the stem until you have grasped the base of the cup and squeezed it to release it’s suctioned grip. Then slide the cup out and empty it into the toilet.

Green Cup care. During your period, you should care for your Green Cup by washing it with mild soap and cold water. Store it in a cotton bag.

Customers report that this cup is somewhat long and narrow. It sounds like it might be better suited for women who have a high cervix.

 

About the company
